What are the benefits?

Are you and your team working on a project or several projects? Are you finding it hard to centralise and manage who is doing what tasks within those projects?

Office 365 Planner is an ideal app that can help with task management. Office 365 Planner provides a hub for team members to facilitate creating Plans (projects), organising, assigning tasks to different team members and tracking progress. It also provides a task view screen that provides full visibility so that files can be uploaded and shared among the whole team. As well as, an overview using simplified charts and a schedule calendar.

Topics covered include:

Sign in to Planner; Create a New Plan and add team members; Add Buckets (Task lists); Create Tasks - Assign tasks to a member with a set due date and priority; Manage tasks in progress, completed or late; Move and remove Buckets within Plans.
