Keep on track with Microsoft Planner

As part of the rollout of Microsoft 365, we have already introduced you to OneDrive and Teams. Next, I would like to introduce you to Planner. For those of you not familiar, this handy tool makes allocating team tasks easier and keeps you on track with your own tasks.

The great thing about Planner is that you can record all progress in the one place. This saves the need to send multiple emails, which is a huge help in managing inboxes.

I’ve found Planner to be an effective tool that helps me keep on top of my own work and track progress in various team projects.

With Planner you can:

  • Create new plans, assign tasks, and share files with others.
  • Organise teamwork and collaborate on projects in a simple, visual way.
  • Choose how and when to be notified when tasks are completed, assigned, and commented on
