There are times you would want to run a project and monitor the completion progress. In SharePoint 2016, you can create a list of tasks and assign those tasks to different players in your team.

Any collaborative work that has a start and an end can be deployed and managed using the SharePoint Task App.

With a few clicks:

  • Create a project task list;
  • Add more tasks to the list;
  • Assign different resources to each task on the list;
  • Track the progress of each task;
  • Adjust tasks to adapt to your team productivity;
  • And more.

SharePoint 2016 also gives you the option to connect your existing task list to Project.

The steps are very intuitive: just add the app, configure the settings, and populate the list.

The video below demonstrates the steps.
