Use Microsoft Lists in the Newsroom

Microsoft Lists is a Microsoft 365 app that helps you track information and organize work. Lists are simple, smart, and flexible, so you can stay on top of what matters most to your team. Track issues, assets, routines, contacts, inventory and more using customizable views and smart rules and alerts to keep everyone in sync. With ready-made templates, you can quickly start lists online, on our new mobile app, or with Microsoft Teams. And because it’s part of Microsoft 365, you can rely on enterprise-ready security and compliance.

In this video we show an example of how a newsroom can use Lists to keep track of a series of stories. We show you how to start from a template, setup, and customize your list. Then we show you how to automatically highlight important entries.
