Are you looking for a space to coordinate tasks when collaborating with colleagues?  With many of us now working from home, synchronising workflows online can be tricky and time-consuming. Microsoft Planner is an Office 365 app that allows you to create, assign and organise tasks visually in one easy space. Using integrated tools, you can track and chart the progress of your project and create to-do lists to assist with completing work on time.

What’s covered in this session

  • Setting-up a project plan
  • Adding staff members
  • Creating and assigning tasks
  • Constructing a to-do list
  • Tracking the progress of your project

What is Tooltime?

Tooltime is a series of short informal showcases, where staff from all areas are given the opportunity to share a gadget, tool, app, workflow or technique. The technologies showcased can range from anything that could engage learners, streamline teaching or are simply time savers. Sessions do not have to formally address teaching and learning concepts in-depth, but rather recognise the technology’s potential capabilities in this area. Each session in the series will run for 30 minutes and are intended for either academic or professional staff.


The Tooltime hosts make no claims on the utility of tools and do not necessarily provide support for the gadgets, widgets or workflows presented.
