Microsoft Planner offers a straightforward and visual approach to team organization. It simplifies the process of creating new plans, coordinating tasks, sharing files, engaging in discussions, and tracking progress for your team.
Here are some key features of Microsoft Planner:
– Visual Organization: Each plan has its own board where tasks can be organized into buckets. You can categorize tasks based on status or assignees. Updating task status or reassigning them is as easy as dragging and dropping tasks between columns.
– Comprehensive Visibility: The My Tasks view provides a unified list of all your tasks and their statuses across all plans. This enables team members to stay informed about who is working on what.
– Seamless Collaboration: Designed for Office 365, Planner allows you to collaborate on tasks, attach photos directly to them, and hold conversations around tasks without switching between different applications. This keeps all discussions and deliverables within the plan, avoiding scattered information across various tools.
– Cross-Device Compatibility: Planner works across all your devices, ensuring that everyone stays on the same page. You can continue conversations and update tasks whether you’re on the go or at your desk.
Please note that Microsoft Planner requires an eligible Office 365 work or school subscription. This app does not support Office 365 personal accounts (for example: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org). If you’re unsure about your company’s subscription or the services you have access to, we recommend reaching out to your IT department for assistance.
