To turn off the sharing link or limit sharing to the list's current members, select the sharing icon to open the sharing menu. Select Manage access Limit access to current members and no additional members will be able to join the list.

You can also select Stop Sharing to turn off the sharing link. Once you stop sharing, current list members will no longer have access and your list will be private again.

Microsoft To Do supports list sharing for the following scenarios: 

  • Sharing between personal Microsoft accounts.

  • Sharing between accounts within the same place of work or education.

  • Sharing from personal Microsoft accounts to work accounts, as long as an organization’s admin has turned this feature on. (Note: it's currently not possible to share from work accounts to personal Microsoft accounts.)
