With this in mind, new technology for Microsoft Word helps users avoid those distractions. While you're typing away and hit a roadblock or remember something else that needs tending to, all you have to do is, "type TODO: finish this section or ," and Word will track and add each to a to-do list. The beta form of the element is accessible for some Office for Mac Insiders beginning today and will take off to Windows testers in the coming weeks.
Microsoft is testing a "to-do" feature on Word that would enable users to come back to a document, view a list of their remaining to-dos, navigate to the right spot and fill-in additional information including images and charts to complete the document without confusion. By tapping on an item on the list, you'll automatically be redirected to the location of that placeholder in the document where you can continue where you left off.More news: Jordan: Flash floods kill eleven and forced tourists to flee
Microsoft will eventually integrate with artificial intelligence models to help fill in placeholders.
"Word sends them a notification with a "deep link" to the relevant place in the document". "When this happens, you likely do what research tells us many Word users do: leave a placeholder in your document and come back to it later to stay in your flow", explained Jared Spataro, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365. "As mentioned in the example above, you can also "@mention" your colleagues to ask them to complete a specific in-document task. And over time, Word will evolve such that it can automatically resolve these placeholders for you.More news: Nicole Kidman Opens Up About Her Scientologist Kids In Rare Interview!
