Task Management is integral to enable a collaborative space where employees track their deliverables and manage responsibilities efficiently. Microsoft Teams being the hub of enterprise collaboration also requires task management integrations to provide a unified experience to its users. Let us explore how organizations can achieve this experience by integrating the Tasks App with their MS Teams platform.
There are several task management tools in Microsoft 365; each with its own way to accomplish efficient task management for your organization. Depending upon how your team chooses to manage tasks, projects, and collaboration you may choose one or more to be a part of your digital workplace.
Take a look at what’s available:
The Tasks experience brings together Microsoft Planner, Microsoft Lists (Outlook), and Microsoft To Do into Microsoft Teams, giving you one place to manage your collaborative plans and individual tasks. From being able to track tasks, manage documents, host meetings, white-boarding sessions, and keep all the project files in one place, MS Teams offers great value for your task management needs.
The MS Tasks app is available both in the form of an app or as a tab in any channel of a team. What you need to make note of is that the app version provides tasks from Microsoft To Do and Microsoft Lists, as well as team tasks from Microsoft Planner, however the tab only includes the team tasks.
You can turn it on or off from the Manage Apps page in Microsoft Teams Admin Center. Follow these simple steps and get started:
There are two core parts of the MS Tasks app in Microsoft Teams:
Setting up Task Publishing: To enable Task Publishing in your Microsoft Teams environment remember that you need to set up a .CSV file of schema that defines the hierarchy of teams and how they are all related to each other and their filter and selection attributes in Microsoft Teams.
