Microsoft has recently announced its plans to integrate and unify its planning tools, including Microsoft To Do, Microsoft Planner, and Microsoft Project for the web. This exciting development, named “Microsoft Planner,” is expected to be available in Microsoft Teams by spring 2024, with the web version coming later that year.
As part of this integration, both Tasks by Planner and the To Do app in Microsoft Teams will be renamed to Planner. Additionally, the renaming of Microsoft Project for the web will take place in the coming months. These changes aim to create a cohesive experience for users across these various planning tools.
One of the key features of the new Planner experience is the addition of an AI copilot. This AI will help users plan tasks more efficiently and provide suggestions for new tasks, enabling users to work smarter and accomplish more in less time.
The objective behind this integration is to provide a single platform that combines to-do lists, kanban-style planning tools, and project management. This unified platform caters to both individual task management and complex project management, making it easier for users to organize and track their work.
The announcement of these plans was made at Microsoft Ignite 2023, a major event for the tech giant. Further details and coverage of the event are available for those interested in diving deeper into the advancements Microsoft has in store.
With the launch of Microsoft Planner and its integrated features, users can look forward to a streamlined planning experience that brings together multiple tools into one powerful platform. This development is sure to enhance productivity and efficiency for individuals and teams alike, saving them time and effort in managing their tasks and projects.
