Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Planner

[Microsoft Planner is used for] task and workload management. Too often, I and others I work with
utilize sticky notes, notepads, etc. to try and remember and keep track
of immediate "To-Dos" and long term projects. Microsoft Planner not only
makes it easy to quickly create tasks for an individual, it helps us
assign tasks in larger projects, remember tasks on the go, keep track on
the progress of tasks/projects, and so much more.

For myself - Microsoft Planner has allowed me to keep track of everything I'm working on, the status of those projects/tasks, and see all the previous work I've done so much easier than I was doing before. Grouping my tasks in different buckets and using flags helps with me being able to prioritize my workload quickly and easily. Since I physically work at multiple different locations, having all my tasks/projects in a digital format also makes them easy to transport and access from anywhere that I may be.

For my teams - I regularly work in cross-functional teams and committees, and because of that I'll commonly integrate Microsoft Planner into Microsoft Teams
so that we can all access a Planner board together, assign tasks/projects accordingly, etc. It makes it that much easier to collaborate, especially when it comes to long term group projects.
