Team and project collaboration has become an essential element of work experience. Businesses increasingly rely on project teams to develop strategic initiatives, drive change, and solve difficult problems. However, it is not easy to track a project, especially if your team is working on multiple workflows to achieve a tight deadline.
The new project is simple and powerfully designed so anyone can get up and running quickly.
New New Experience
Projects provide a simple and intuitive redesigned user experience. Teams can quickly add new members, set up tasks, and then easily switch between grid, board, or timeline charts to track their progress. In addition, Project is part of the Microsoft 365 suite, so project teams can save time and do more with built-in connections to familiar apps like Microsoft Teams and Office.
Easy to Collaborate
Designed to do more than just track progress, Project is designed to work with teams to support collaboration Make it easy to manage all aspects of your team projects, including file sharing, chats, and meetings. And much more. Team members in distributed locations can edit their work at the same time, allowing them to do more regardless of their location. To keep your team on track, Project provides an automated scheduling engine based on effort, duration, and resources.
