Get notifications for shared lists

Get updates for changes in shared lists. If you turn on notifications for Microsoft To Do on your device, you’ll be notified about changes in shared lists on Windows, Android, and iOS when: 

  • Someone joins the list

  • A new task is added

  • A task is completed

  • A task is unchecked

  • A task is deleted

Note: Notifications for shared lists are currently only available on Windows, Android, and iOS for personal Microsoft accounts. Notifications for Microsoft To Do must be turned on for you to receive notifications on your device for shared list activity.  

Turn off notifications in shared lists

On Windows: 

1. Open To Do > Settings > Notifications 

2. Toggle Shared list activity off 
 

On iOS: 

1. Open To Do > Settings > Notifications 

2. Toggle Shared list activity off

On Android 8.0 and above: 

1. Open To Do > Settings > Notifications 

2. Toggle Shared list activity off 

Note: To send push notifications on Android we use the Google notification system, which requires that a Google account is connected in the device settings. If you use a device where no Google account is set up, you unfortunately will not be able to receive push notifications.
