Have you heard about the new Microsoft product currently launching across the globe? It is a project management app similar to programs like Trello & Basecamp. Introducing Microsoft Planner, rolling out to customers over the next few weeks. Customers on Office 365 Enterprise E1-E5, Business Essentials, Premium and Education subscriptions plans will notice that the Planner tile will automatically appear in the Office 365 app launcher when it is available for them to use. Users will not have to do anything to action this.
Wondering what Planner is going to be like? Microsoft says it will allow users to “create new plans, organise, assign and collaborate on tasks; set due dates; update statuses and share files”.
At a glance Microsoft Planner looks very similar to other project management apps, however having it created by Microsoft gives it an edge above the rest simply for Microsoft’s reputation, experience and trust that people already have in them.
With the addition of Planner to Office 365 it just makes us love this Cloud productivity suite even more. Would be great to hear what you think of it when it shows up on your app launcher in the coming weeks.
