Microsoft announced (opens in new tab) two new apps for Microsoft Teams that aim to improve productivity, Bulletins and Milestones. The apps are built on the Power Platform, meaning that organizations can easily customize them to fit their needs.
Bulletins allows organizations to share news in one place. Within Bulletins, articles can be organized under categories and include media such as images, videos, and actionable buttons. Publishers of content through Bulletin can keep track of different metrics, including how many people have viewed an article.
The Bulletins app (opens in new tab) can be pinned to Teams, and people can select categories to customize their view.
Microsoft highlights that the Bulletins app is optimized for mobile devices, meaning that important information, such as weather alerts and system outages, can be viewed on mobile devices when people are in the field.
The Milestones app (opens in new tab) creates a central location for keeping track of the status and updates of work items. You can track items by owners or status, and updates are tracked in an activity log.
Organizations can customize the Milestones app by updating fields labels, adding new fields', or adding changes to process flows, such as adding notifications for work stream owners to keep people up to date.
