Office 365 Planner – Work seamlessly as a team

by | Mar 13, 2017 | Archived Articles

In this series of blogs I have been exploring the Microsoft 365 productivity tools and how these can help your team work together more productively.

Office 365 Planner is a simple and highly visual way to organise your team and enable collaborative working in real time. Planner enables your team to create new plans, organise and assign tasks, share files, real time chat about their tasks and update on progress.

One of the most beneficial aspects of Planner is the fact it enables teams to organise their work visually using dash-boards and graphs. You can have as many different team members involved in each plan as you need. From here they can share documents, input due dates, categories, prioritise and have conversations.

You can also keep an eye on your team making sure everything is on track, via the Hub, this allows you to view progress across all plans. You can also filter this down to view only “My Tasks” to make sure you are on track and know what your tasks are.

Planner is part of the Office 365 suite, meaning all conversations within planner are available in Office 2016, Outlook on the Web and the Outlook Groups Mobile Apps.

Planner is the ideal way to organise your office files, attaching Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents to a single Card within Planner means you can work on all of your documents offline.

If you want to learn more about Planner or any of the Office 365 Productivity Suite talk to your Account Manager or Technical Consultant.
