Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Microsoft Planner Essential Training.
- [Instructor] 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, assign tasks and communicate with other team members. We will not be getting into the administrative side of Planner. Secondly, not everyone has automatic access to Microsoft Planner. It's part of many, but not all, of the Office 365 subscription plans. So when you log into Office 365 check to see if Planner is one of the apps that 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. And 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.
