Microsoft is working on a new feature they call “to do tracking” in Word. As of now, it’s only available in Word for Mac for Office Insiders, but they expect to roll it out to all Office 365 subscribers eventually.

On the one hand, this sounds as if it could be really useful. On the other hand, the thought of Microsoft using AI to help users brings Clippy to mind.

ToDo Tracking is written by Wunderlist—the task tracker bought a while back by Microsoft. ToDo Tracking will eventually operate across all O365 applications, they say.

This sounds as if it could be useful in writing long-form - though the degree to which it is so will I’m sure depend on the implementation. (Over the years it’s been an occasional request on the Scrivener forums. It’s a feature that I’d like, and in the interim I’ve experimented with Unclutter and TaskPaper. I suspect that one could go some way towards it using Scrivener’s existing features.)
