Written by Hubie Sturtevant on October 28th, 2019 at 12:08 pm

Microsoft’s robust selection of modern work management offerings just got a whole lot more interesting with the release of Project for the web. This exciting new, modern web-based task and project management solution provides an experience that supports co-authoring, interactive grid/board/timeline views and a whole lot more!

A range of work management solutions

This new solution further strengthens Microsoft’s robust selection of modern work management offerings that support the full gamut of organizations for small to medium to large:

  • Planner
    Makes it easy for small teams to create plans, organize and assign tasks, share files and provide updates to all stakeholders on progress.
  • Project for the web
    Modern and powerful project execution to help managers and team members plan manage work of any size.
  • Project Online
    Enterprise project and portfolio management capabilities for planning, prioritizing, and managing investments of all types and sizes.
  • Azure DevOps/Azure Boards
    Azure Boards provides rich agile capabilities including native support for Scrum and Kanban, customizable dashboards, and integrated reporting.

These solutions join the recently introduced Home and Roadmap features and Power BI, which allow for bringing together task-level information from Project Online, Project for the web, Azure Boards, Jira and more.
