Are you having trouble keeping track of your tasks? Using e-mail like a to-do list? Post-it notes everywhere? Wunderlist is the application that might be the answer to your problems. Wunderlist is a cloud-based task-management system that allows you to easily create multiple to-do lists from any device. While it doesn’t directly integrate with SharePoint, you can connect Wunderlist to Microsoft Office Groups and Teams so update notifications will populate the conversation streams. It’s the perfect easy-to-use product when you don’t need an elaborate task list in Microsoft Project or when you need a mobile-friendly app.
