Microsoft has announced a new task centric work management tool for Office 365 called Planner.
The app works similar to Trello -- which is based on the kanban-style, board architectural model -- where users can move tasks between different user-defined boards, assign tasks to users and track progress.
It makes structuring work easier by giving you a visual overview of task responsibilities, progress, and upcoming deadlines.
The app integrates with other Microsoft products like OneNote, OneDrive and Outlook, so it ll be an obvious choice for those already committed to the Office 365 suite.
Planner is still in its early days, however.
Some of that should be coming down the road with Microsoft already working on apps for Android, iOS and Windows, as well as features like reusable plan templates, external user access to boards and the ability to assign a task to multiple users.
