Message from Office 365 Message Center: New Tasks module in Outlook on the Web
Major update: General Availability rollout started
Applied to: All customers
We are excited to announce the new Tasks module in Outlook on the web as an updated Office 365 feature. We’ll begin rolling this feature out in mid-March.
This enhancement is related to Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 34338.
[How does this impact me?]
Customers who opt-in to the early version of the new Outlook on the web will see a newly redesigned Tasks experience, powered by Microsoft To-Do. We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers in March, and the rollout will follow the general release timeline of the new Outlook on the web.
This rollout is excluded from Office 365 subscriptions in GCC.
[What should I do to prepare for this change?]
If you white-list or block domains that can be accessed by your users – Please note that the new Tasks experience powered by To-Do uses the “to-do.office.com” domain, so you might wish to whitelist domains accordingly for your users to be able to use the new Tasks experience.
If you don’t white-list/block any domains, you don’t need to do anything, but may consider updating your user training, and notifying your helpdesk.
