In this video, learn what is required to follow along in this course, such as an Office 365 account and any previous experience that might help the learning experience.
- [Instructor] Well, here's what you need to know about this course on Planner before we begin. Firstly, this course is targeted to end users, the people who will be using Planner to create teams, collaborate on projects, create tasks, and communicate with other team members. We will not be getting into the administrative side of Planner in this course. Secondly, not everyone has automatic access to Microsoft Planner. It's part of many but not all Office 365 subscription plans. So when you login to Office 365, check to see if a Planner tile appears along with your other apps.
If not, you may need to upgrade your subscription plan to get Planner to follow along with me in this course. We'll be talking about what subscription plans include Planner in the next movie. Lastly, you don't need any experience with Planner to follow along with me, but any previous knowledge of project management in general will definitely come in handy. And, that's what you need to know before we get started. So, what is Planner exactly and who gets it? We'll discuss that next.
