In detail, we learn how the tools Microsoft To Do , Planner And Projectwill soon become one.
Microsoft also announces that it has chosen a name for this unified experience: “ Microsoft Planner “. The firm also explains to us that if these changes arrive on Teams from spring 2024, they will also be relevant for the web version of these different tools… but this time later in 2024, without further details at this stage.
Reorganization, a hint of repranding, all sprinkled with AI
As reported TechCrunch , Tasks by Planner and the app To Do in Microsoft Teams will immediately be renamed to Microsoft Planner.Against all expectations, Microsoft specifies that the web version of its toolMicrosoft Projectwill only be renamed in the coming months.
