Microsoft Planner enables you to take the chaos out of teamwork and get more done by making it simple to create plans, organise and assign tasks, share files, chat about work, and get updates on progress.
Designed to digitally transform the way that you approach planning, it’s out-of-the-box integration with Microsoft Teams and the wider Microsoft suite enable you to connect, automate and adopt workflows that increase efficiency and improve team utilisation, simply.
You can launch Microsoft Planner from the Office 365 app launcher with a single click, enabling you to create a new plan, build a team, assign tasks, and update status in a few easy steps.
Each plan has its own board, which enables you to organise each task into various buckets. With the functionality to categorise tasks based on their status or on whom they’re assigned to, it easy for your team members to see what’s expected of them, update status or change assignments.
The ‘My Tasks’ view provides a comprehensive list of all your tasks and their status across all your plans, enabling team members to always know who is working on what.
Built for Office 365, Microsoft Planner lets you attach files to tasks, work together on them, and even have conversations about them without switching applications. This means that all of your team’s discussions and deliverables stay with the plan and don’t get locked away across disparate applications.
Microsoft Planner works across all devices, enabling every team member to access the information that they need, wherever they are.
Microsoft Planner integrates with your email system, meaning that employees receive email notifications whenever they’re assigned a new task or added to a conversation.
