    Work, Task, Project management tools - Microsoft ups their game

    There are 3 levels of activity tracking in the work place where the activity benefits from shared knowledge of the status

    - Work
    Standalone 'things' that need to get done and are repetitive, simple and ongoing.
    - Tasks
    Standalone 'things' that need to get done that have some simple stages from initiation to complete.
    - Projects
    Interdependent activities that need a certain sequence to ensure completion of the whole.


    Below this sits your personal 'to do' which is short term and just stuff you need to do.

    Lists and Planner should be part of 365. Project is not

    it seems to be integrated with Sharepoint. So any business level subscription.

    If you have Microsoft 365 family, it Lists and Tasks doesn't appear.
    Teams is available for free and you can add it to your family subscription.

    Still looks much worse than Basecamp.

    So many products from Microsoft (outside of core Office), and especially anything attached to Sharepoint, are such utter UIX disasters that I have found them infuriatingly unusable. They seem to exemplify the worst pitfalls of 'design by committee' possible. In my experience, this has been consistent over the past decade and a half.
