Microsoft today announced that its task management service Planner is now available for US government customers. Microsoft Planner makes it easy for teams to create new plans, organize and assign tasks, share files, chat about what they are working on, and get updates on progress. With this availability, IT Admins in US government agencies can offer a simple work management solution which works on strict security and compliance requirements.
Microsoft also mentioned some Planner features that will not be available initially to government customers. But these features will be enabled in the future updates.
