Microsoft Planner, a new tool that helps teams track and collaborate on projects, launched today for the Office 365 suite.

Planner lets you organize projects, share files, assign tasks, and chat with other collaborators—all within Office 365.

As shown in the video above, the app uses Cards and Boards to organize everything something you re probably familiar with if you ve used Trello or Asana , and those Boards can even be organized into larger projects or columns called Buckets.

From there, you can see who s meeting deadlines, and navigate to your own assigned tasks.

The kicker here is that Planner is integrated with other Microsoft products like OneNote and Outlook, making it an ideal option for users and business who are already deep in the Microsoft ecosystem.

Planner will be rolling out to Office 365 customers worldwide over the next several weeks.
