Stay Organized with Microsoft Lists


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. With Microsoft Lists, you can create, share, and track lists with anyone, helping you manage inventory, build out event agendas, report status, set up reminders, and much more.

Microsoft Lists integrates with other Microsoft 365 apps like SharePoint, Teams, and Excel, providing a seamless experience for collaboration and productivity. It offers customizable views, smart rules and alerts, and the ability to create lists from templates or from scratch, depending on your project’s needs. Microsoft Lists is a fantastic way to share data; other users can view and even edit these lists if the author gives permission. If you have a Microsoft 365 license, you already have access to it, and it is easy to use.

It is easy to import Microsoft Lists data into Power BI for further analysis. There is no need to search for a more complex alternative when you have Microsoft Lists at your disposal. Indeed, by opting to input your list data into a new Power BI file, the hassle of importing is eliminated, and you can seamlessly integrate the data with Power BI directly from within Microsoft Lists.

Microsoft Lists and SharePoint Lists are almost identical in nature; Microsoft Lists serves as a user-friendly interface for SharePoint. It is entirely feasible to utilize Microsoft Lists without being aware that it is a part of SharePoint. Consequently, you may not recognize that you have the option to link Power BI with Microsoft Lists using a SharePoint connector.
