Microsoft News & Updates: Tech Launches Planner App For Office 365 Subscribers; Why Is It Similar To Trello?
Recent news and updates unveiled that Microsoft will soon release a new planner app for Office 365 subscribers. The new app will incorporate certain features that are similar to Trello. Owing to that, many are wondering why the new app is patterned with Trello's setup and configuration.
Microsoft has announced it is rolling out a new project management and collaboration app called Planner to all Office 365 subscribers for free from today and it would be similar to Trello in concept, reports Mac Rumors.
Also, planner enables users to organize projects into "buckets", or collections of tasks that can then be dragged and dropped between buckets in the project interface, as noted by the same post. Moreover, it is one of the concepts that Microsoft was currently prepping for since September, but it was not able to integrate the new concept to all users.
Tech Crunch also mentioned that another key aspect of the software is the "Hub" where you can track the overall progress of the plans, see who's on time and who's behind and filter down to see your own tasks and assignments.

Not only that but what makes Microsoft's offering compelling versus the competition is its integration with other Microsoft products, and that is something that will appeal to organizations who are already invested in Microsoft's Office suite and related services, reports the same post. For one, the Planner would be utilized better with the Office 365 Groups, that would also be accessible in Outlook 2016, Outlook on the web, and the Outlook Groups Mobile App.
