Asana is a web and mobile workflow management platform designed to help teams organize, track, and manage their work. This helps coordinate team tasks so everyone knows who is doing what. It also allows everyone to share reviews, files and status updates. Asana offers a holistic work perspective, allowing teams to work on the right tasks at the right time. While the platform provides a host of features, a significant segment of customers are moving towards MS Planner due to its integration capabilities, ease of use and advanced features. MS Planner is a Microsoft planning application used to create plans, assign tasks, discuss tasks, and view team progress charts. This easy-to-use tool allows you to schedule tasks and manage projects without complex planning efforts. In this article we will talk about migrating Asana to Microsoft Planner.
