Microsoft Office 365 - Office Planner

Organizing your team’s efforts for completing projects together has been streamlined and simplified by Microsoft Office 365 to add all useful work management features into a single place: Microsoft Planner. The dashboard provides users with a clean interface that clearly and prominently display tasks and communications by project; elements of each project are kept separate so you can effectively delegate and complete tasks. Best of all, you and your team members can continue your work from anywhere by accessing Microsoft Planner from any connected device. Launch Microsoft Planner with a single click on the Microsoft Office 365 dashboard to see how it can streamline your workflow. 

Some of the useful features Microsoft Office 365’s Microsoft Planner include:

Visual Organization

Organize your tasks and plans into “buckets,” or streams of information where you can view related tasks, who’s doing them, and their progress based on the criteria you set. Setting and assigning tasks is as easy as dragging and dropping items between different columns for a dynamic task management system.

Holistic View of Tasks

By viewing your buckets and tasks in My Tasks, you can see a larger and more comprehensive look at your tasks, their completion statuses, and those of your teammates for an overview of everyone’s workload. This level of transparency lets you know who is progressing and who needs help with their tasks in one place.

All of your information is attached to each task so that nothing is lost and you do not have to deal with trying to work around using different applications for the same task. Everything is built into Office 365 to complete your tasks with ease, effectiveness, and efficiency.
