Office 365 Planner

I’m a diehard fan of Trello. I’ve been using it since 2012. All my ideas to implementations are planned and managed in Trello. Not only me, my team uses the same for task allocation, collaboration and tracking. Going beyond the web tool, I uses the mobile app as well. But todays post is not about Trello, but probably a Trello killer. Smile with tongue out

Microsoft has come up with their own planning software (yet to be released in Q4) in Office 365, which is know as Office 365 Planner. According to Microsoft “Office 365 Planner, which offers people a simple and highly visual way to organize teamwork. Planner makes it easy for your team to create new plans, organize and assign tasks, share files, chat about what you’re working on, and get updates on progress. Planner can be used to manage a marketing event, brainstorm new product ideas, track a school project, prepare for a customer visit, or just organize your team more effectively.”
