Microsoft Planner hands-on demonstration

Earlier this month, we launched Microsoft Planner, which offers you a simple and visual way to organize teamwork. There are different ways we all get work done and until recently Microsoft has had solutions on two ends of the spectrum. Tools like Wunderlist or Outlook help manage your personal task lists, while Project or Project Online can be used to manage projects that require scheduling, prioritization, resource management, timesheets and integration with Line of Business systems. The middle ground is where Planner fits in, and it’s designed for structured team collaboration. For example, you can use Planner to manage events, office moves, user training or other team projects.

Today, we take a deeper look at Microsoft Planner—a new experience in Office 365 to organize work, manage and assign tasks and collaborate within your teams. Sajan Parihar and I go hands-on and show you how to use Planner—including integrated experiences across Office 365.

Best-in-class productivity apps with intelligent cloud services that transform the way you work.

Get started

In the show, we demonstrate where to find Planner, how to get started with creating plans, assigning tasks and the things you can do while working through a plan. We walk through the integrated experiences with Office 365 Groups, board and chart views to visualize tasks and monitor progress—and finally what the team is building in the coming months.

To learn more and see this in action, watch the video and keep giving us your feedback at our UserVoice site.

See you soon,
