Microsoft is Adding AI-Powered Placeholders to Word

Microsoft Word gets AI-powered to-do lists and collaboration feature

With this in mind, new technology for Microsoft Word helps users avoid those distractions. The company will add a built-in To-do feature to Word, and the app will be able to create placeholders automatically when users type "TODO: finish this section" or " insert closing here " in Word documents. 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".

Office Insiders on the Mac have access to a new feature this week in the form of an intelligent and automatic to-do list generator.

"When you come back to the document, you'll see a list of your remaining to-dos, and you can click each one to navigate back to the right spot", Microsoft said. Microsoft responded by continuing to improve the feature set of Office, and now it is turning to artificial intelligence to make Word cleverly create to-do lists for you.

Said list will be viewable by all collaborators; they merely need to click on the checkbox icon to the left of the main text editing window.

This week, Microsoft announced new AI features in Word that will help you create an in-platform to-do list where you can invite others to help out without ever breaking your writing mojo. Microsoft plans to launch for other Office apps later. Even better, Word users will be able to @mention coworkers within placeholders to ask them for help. "Soon, they'll be able to reply to the notification with their contributions, and those contributions will be inserted directly into the document-making it easy to complete the task with an email from any device".

"In the next few months, Word will use Microsoft Search to suggest content for a to-do like ". You'll need Word for Mac and you must be an Office Insider with Mac Office configured for the Fast ring. It will be available to all Office 365 customers on Windows, Mac, and the web in the near future.
