Microsoft To-Do will soon let you attach any file to a task on a personal list. File Attachments are now live for beta testers on iOS, Android, and Windows 10 (for Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring), and it’s currently possible to upload files up to 25mb. This is a pretty neat addition, especially since you can also add multiple files to a specific task.
As you may know, Microsoft To-Do now uses Microsoft Exchange for syncing, which means that all items created in To-Do with an Outlook.com or Office 365 account now sync with Outlook tasks on the desktop. Files you attach to tasks in Microsoft To-Do will also end up in Outlook for Windows, which is pretty neat. Unfortunately, there’s no such synergy on Outlook for Mac yet, as file attachments on the Mac version are only supported in email messages and not within tasks.
In addition to Files Attachments, these latest beta updates also bring improvements to the search UI on iPad, as well as a rich entry bar on Android for adding due dates, reminders and more when you create new tasks. All these features should roll out to the general public in the coming weeks, but you can sign up today to join the beta testers on Android and iOS.
Update: We initially wrote that File attachments in To-Do didn’t sync with Outlook tasks on the desktop, but this is only the case on Outlook for Mac. We apologize for the error.Further reading: Microsoft To-Do, Outlook
