What you need to know

  • Microsoft Outlook on the web now has a calendar board view for project management.
  • Calendar board view allows you to bring contacts, files, calendar events, and more into a canvas.
  • The feature was known as Project Moca while it was in beta testing over the last year.

Microsoft Outlook has a new project management tool, formerly known as Project Moca, that is rolling out after over a year of testing. Project Moca launched in beta in May 2020. As explained in a Microsoft support document, Project Moca "now has a new home as a calendar board view in Outlook on the web."

The calendar board view within Outlook allows you to bring together contacts, files, calendar events, and more into a large canvas.

Microsoft highlights a few tasks that you can use the calendar board view to accomplish:

  • Calendar: You can add multiple calendar items and see different calendars side by side.
  • Task Lists: You can now add your existing task lists from To Do to your board.
  • Clock: Keep track of different time zones to stay connected with your family, friends, and colleagues around the world.
  • Tips: Learn how to get the most out of the board view.

To open calendar board view:

  1. Go to in your browser.
  2. Click on the calendar icon.
  3. Click on the menu that lets you switch between day, week, and month view.
  4. Select Board.

Mike Tholfsen, product manager on the Microsoft EDU team, shared a video showing off the new calendar boards back in May. They are now rolling out to everyone.
