Microsoft Planner is a great tool to keep your productivity at its best. If you’re already using Microsoft Teams, go to the Apps tab inside Teams and download “Tasks by Planner and To Do”. The Microsoft Planner app will be downloaded and can be used directly inside of Teams. Create multiple shared plans based on your different departments, e.g Sales or Finance, and collaborate on shared tasks.
First, you need to create a Teams Channel (e.g. Sales) inside the Teams tab in Microsoft Teams. You then create a shared plan under the same name for the department you need (Sales). Once inside your shared plan, you can click on “Add task” under the to do list. Give your task a title, assign the relevant employees in this department, and set a due date for this task. You can create a checklist and add comments/notes.
Because you already have Microsoft Planner inside of Microsoft Teams, you have the ability to share information, chat, or call your fellow employees from one central location.
