Microsoft Office is launching a new product to its line-up, Microsoft Planner. The team collaboration software gives users a visual platform to organize plans, assign tasks, share files, chat and more. Planners use of “Boards” keep projects organized. “Cards” are on the boards and utilize due dates, attachments, categories and conversations. The Cards can be organized into “Buckets” which can be color-coded and prioritized.
One of the benefits of Planner is that it’s easily integrated into other Microsoft Office services allowing users to attach Word, Excel and PowerPoint files to a card. Beyond that, the program integrates with OneNote and every plan has a OneNote Notebook created for it.
