With the recent announcement of Tasks in Teams, we want to share our broader vision for how we integrate tasks across Microsoft 365.
Whether in your personal life or work, as an individual or as a team, in any industry or type of role – everyone deals with tasks every day. Many of these tasks are generated from Microsoft’s portfolio of productivity and collaboration tools: Office docs, Planner plans, emails, chats, the list goes on and on. While all these apps and services are helping people and teams be more productive than ever before, they also introduce new challenges: How do we cut through the noise? How do we manage our day effectively and make sure nothing slips through the cracks?
To address this need, we’ve layered on tasks as a functionality to help users manage and prioritize their work. The presence of tasks in Microsoft 365 is already extensive, and will be a big investment area moving forward, as we work to connect our tasks experiences across Microsoft products and services.
Our vision for tasks in Microsoft 365 revolves around these core principles:
Our hero endpoints for personal task management are:
Hubs with task management functionality:
Other currently integrated products and services:
Ultimately, all of these apps, services, experiences, and connections revolve around the user. Wherever YOU prefer to get your day-to-day work done, tasks in Microsoft 365 will be available to help you stay on track and make the most of your day.
