Office 365 To-Do is Coming Soon

To the Dickinson College Community:

‘To-Do’ is a new application in Office 365 scheduled to appear along with our other Office 365 applications soon. To-Do is based on the popular app Wunderlist and is a very simple task management application for maintaining one or more checklists of tasks to accomplish (like other task apps such as Paperless, Any.do, Apple Reminders, etc.). The Office 365 integration comes in that any tasks you choose to create in To-Do are synced with the Tasks section in Outlook, and vice-versa, any tasks created in Outlook appear in To-Do.

So, why have two apps (To-Do and Outlook) which both create and manage tasks (in fact, the same tasks, since they are synced)? Primarily for a simpler task management option (To-Do) for those who do not want all the extra features in Outlook Tasks. Outlook Tasks have a lot of features - fields for tracking hours worked, mileage, billing hours, etc. as well as the ability to assign tasks to other people and link notes stored in a task to OneNote. Conversely, To-Do has very few features – a reminder, a due date, and a notes area. Also, To-Do is very colorful, clean, easy, and the web interface is identical to the iOS and Android apps.

A description and video about To-Do can be found here: https://products.office.com/en-US/microsoft-to-do-list-app

The addition of To-Do will not change anything in Office 365, it is just an added application you may use if it seems useful for your work. Be on the lookout for it soon or, you may use it now by logging into To-Do with your Dickinson email address and password here: https://todo.microsoft.com

Enjoy!

Presented by the Center for Service, Spirituality and Social Justice

A copy of the book will be ordered for employees registered prior to Friday, December 8, 2017.

Faculty Research Lunch: Megan Yost - Transprejudice: How beliefs about gender differences relate to prejudice against transwomen

Please join the Women's & Gender Resource Center, and Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Department for November's Faculty Research Lunch with Professor Megan Yost. The talk will be held on November 30th, 12-1pm, in Stern 102. Lunch is provided.

Previous research has identified several attitudes that relate to prejudice against trans women, such as sexism and homophobia. In this research study, we explored attitudinal predictors of transprejudice, as well as an additional construct not studied before in this context—people’s beliefs about the nature of gender differences (being due to either the essential nature of men and women or to differential gender socialization). Our findings ultimately suggest that reducing transprejudice requires attention to both attitudes and beliefs about the nature of gender differences.

Please RSVP to WGRC@dickinson.edu
