German software developer MeisterLabs is proud to announce an integration between its online task management solution, MeisterTask, and Microsoft Teams, the hub for teamwork in Microsoft Office 365.
With the new MeisterTask tab, teams can collaborate on task management within their Microsoft Teams channels, via shared project boards and tasks. The MeisterTask tab allows team members to create projects and tasks, assign work and leave feedback, all from inside the Teams app. Users can continue to utilize the Teams chat area concurrently, meaning discussions and plans can be converted into action, without leaving the Teams app.
Within each Microsoft Teams channel, teams can choose to either link existing MeisterTask project boards or create new projects. Once linked, all members of the Teams channel with a MeisterTask account can view and collaborate within the project. If Teams members aren’t yet signed up for MeisterTask, they can sign up in seconds, via the Office 365 login.
Any work completed within the linked projects will be updated in real-time across all MeisterTask apps, meaning projects can be tracked by all team members, whether they’re using MeisterTask in Microsoft Teams, via the browser, or via the MeisterTask desktop or mobile apps.
“In today’s working world, our mutual customers rely on solutions that enable teams to work together across offices and time zones,” said Rob Howard, director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. “The MeisterTask tab for Microsoft Teams will help our mutual customers capture ideas and plans shared in Teams channels, before turning them into actionable tasks in the new MeisterTask tab.”
“Microsoft Teams provides a collaborative solution for modern teams to communicate and work together,” said Till Vollmer, co-founder and managing director at MeisterLabs. “We’re delighted to support this collaboration further with a tab that enables Teams customers to share their ideas and plans, before turning these into action, via in-built MeisterTask project boards and tasks.”
