Using Microsoft To-Do with Skype

It's easy to capture tasks directly from Skype chats with our Microsoft To-Do add-in. Just press and hold or right click on a message to create a task. You can also view and manage your tasks in Skype by heading to Microsoft To-Do under Add-ins.

Please know that tasks created in Skype will be saved to Microsoft To-Do using the same Microsoft account that you use to sign in to Skype. The Microsoft To-Do add-in is becoming available to Skype users in stages. If you don't yet see the feature in Skype, please bear with us while we work to bring it you.

How do I save a task from a Skype chat?

  1. Tap and hold or right click on a message and select Create to-do.

  2. Make edits to your to-do, select a specific to-do list, then select Add.

  3. You'll receive a confirmation that the to-do has been saved to your to-do list.

How do I manage my to-do lists?

  1. From a chat, select the Add-ins blue plus sign button.

  2. Select Microsoft To-Do.

  3. Select one of your existing to-do lists if you have one, or create a new one.

  4. From a specific to-do list, you can:

    • Add a new to-do.

    • Edit an existing to-do.

    • Delete a to-do.

    • Mark a to-do as complete.

  5. While in a to-do list you've created, you can also delete the list itself by clicking the More three dots menu and selecting Delete list.

How do I set a reminder for a task?

Setting a reminder isn't currently available from within Skype yet but you can access all Microsoft To-Do features from within the Microsoft To-Do app.
