  • This is great. Now all I need is for the Microsoft Launcher on Android to show the 'Planned' feed.
  • Frontline.
    Interestingchoice of feature word. Militarization of app features?
    Has an odd ring to it.
  • They have been using the term for a few years now. Think retail or warehouse staff.
  • Also "front line health care workers"
