Microsoft Planner makes it easier to manage teams and tasks. On a simple yet very effective Kanban Board tool, it allows you to create and follow up team tasks, and assign team members just by drag and drop boxes between columns.  Simple as that. Don’t worry, you will be notified via email whenever a new task is assigned to you. For a more wide and effective control of projects, it should work along with Project Online.

The out-of-the-box version might seem overly simplistic, particularly when it comes to integration and reporting methods. Therefore, we’ve built a bidirectional interface for Project Online, Dynamics 365, among other tools (learn about SHIFT 2 Hybrid), to leverage this simplicity as a micro planning, communication and reporting tool.
