Plan projects and track deadlines
Organize your work - whether individual tasks or business projects - with a quick Microsoft To-Do list or a bigger-picture task board in Microsoft Planner. Use templates to share your project plan or timeline with stakeholders.
Try these three options to accomplish your business goals, whether large or small:
