In this video, learn how to launch Planner from Office 365, get comfortable with the user interface, and create a new plan, including adding members to the plan.
- [David] It's time now…to actually launch Microsoft Planner,…create a new plan, and add some team members.…All you need to do is open up your browser…and log in to Office 365.…You can see from my current view…and the views always changing from this homepage,…there is no Planner icon,…but clicking Explore all your apps…will give you a list of all the apps you have access to…with your Office 365 account.…And scrolling down the alphabetical list,…you should see Planner…if you have the right Office 365 account.…
Remember, not every Office 365 membership plan…comes with Planner.…Once you found it, click Planner…and you'll notice a new tab opens up here in your browser…and you're looking at something called the Planner hub.…The Planner hub is where you get a nice overview…of everything that's going on,…the plans you belong to, your tasks, and so on.…You can see right now I don't have any of my own plans,…I see a welcome message here…and an opportunity to get the app for my mobile device.…
I'm going to close that up right now…
