Here’s a couple of handy productivity apps in Microsoft 365 that you may not know about…

Microsoft ToDo

Do you like to work off a list of tasks for the day? I use Microsoft ToDo to as a daily tasks list. It gets all of those jobs onto a list so that I can clear them out of my head and tick them off as they are completed. Look for the blue tick in Outlook or download the ToDo app. Here’s a short video that talks about ways to use ToDo.

Microsoft Planner
If you’ve used Trello, Planner is very similar. Create a plan, then add ‘buckets’. These are categories of tasks within the plan. Add your tasks under these buckets and you can assign them to people, add a date for completion, tag the task with various categories that you can create and note if a task is started, in progress or completed.
If working in Microsoft Teams is a big part of your day, then adding Planner to Teams keeps it handy. Watch this short video to see how it works.
