Hello all,

 

are there any easy and pragmatic workflow management apps which can be easily used to replace the classical MS Excel LOPs?

 

Many thanks,

Christoph

Hi @ChrisGraw

What are you trying to achieve? The apps typically used for workflows within the Office 365 ecosystem are SharePoint or Flow, for example

SharePoint
https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/overview-of-workflows-included-with-sharepoint-d74fcceb-3a6...

Flow
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/modern-approvals

Teams also includes several third party workflow related applications such as MeisterTask

Hope that helps to answer your question.

Best, Chris

Hi Christopher,
many thanks for this input. Additionally, I figured out that the planner app is quite helpful and provides Kanban functionality.
Actually, I am trying to get rid of this widely spread .xls sheets called LOP, activity tracker, etc. in a development project These are not very practical and from time to time quite difficult to keep up-to-date. So I was hoping to find an easy way to track work packages in a project as a project manager.

Many thanks,
Christoph
Hmm as it’s for a Dev project have you considered Azure DevOps? That integrates with Teams and has Kanban etc.

Best, Chris
Hi Chris, Unfortunately, I cannot do that because my company is not supporting this app. Anyway, thanks for the hint.

Best,
Christoph

I would like to find an app like this as well.  Dealing with LOP (list of points) via excel is cumbersome and tasks get lost.  Teamcenter has a workflow process that sends actions to individuals to complete and the assignor is then notified when it is complete.  Is there an app connected to teams that can create and manage a workflow like this? @ChrisGraw
