Are you looking for a better way to do your business trip approvals? Or how about a better project management experience in Microsoft 365?

Look no further than the two apps about to appear in your Microsoft 365 launcher: Lists and Tasks. While different, they can both be leveraged to improve knowledge management and workflow so your users can be more productive.

Lists is an evolution of the list functionality in SharePoint. Essentially, this database of columns and rows can help users stay organized when executing many common workplace duties. We’ll explain why this facelift is relevant and how to leverage some of the newer features such as “rules” and the ability to surface in Microsoft Teams.

Next, we’ll dive into Tasks. This new app will replace and integrate Planner and To-Do, which will finally provide a unified task management experience across Microsoft 365. We’ll explain how it works, how to surface it in Microsoft Teams and how to connect it to other applications.

This webinar is designed to be instantly actionable. We will give you concrete steps and easy wins you can deploy in your environment within days to see happy and productive end users.
