Providing an annual rather than month only view of the business with 91% of users saying they prefer the “year wheel” ahead of planning spreadsheets 

Plandisc, the world’s first digital circular calendar tool allowing users to view and manage a year’s plans across multiple personnel, teams and departments, announces that it can now be seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Outlook. 

The tool, which was created to save the world from taking a short-term business view is already compatible with Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, but the synchronisation with Outlook means that important meetings and events now require a simple click to appear both in Outlook and a company’s Plandisc simultaneously.  This means that organisations can now see their annual rhythm of business compared to a month by month view making it easier to visualise key meetings, events and planning cycles. 

Typically embedded on an organisation’s intranet to make it accessible to all staff, the circular overview helps coordinate plans between different departments as well as company-wide events and marketing activity. With a circular view, it is easy to spot overlapping activities and ensure that these are distributed evenly throughout the year. Plandisc customer feedback shows that administration time is reduced by about 2 hours per annum using the tool.

Torben Stigaard, partner at Plandisc explains “We’re delighted to announce that Plandisc can now be seamlessly integrated into Outlook making it even simpler for businesses and organisations to visualise and manage meetings and events across a number of departments for a year at a time. We believe this will prove extremely beneficial to our customers at a challenging time when they are working from various locations.” 

For organisations who would like to test the tool for free, one user can create up to three Pandisc’s from several templates found on their website: https://plandisc.com/en/circular-calendar-templates/ Packages include a Premium account for just £130 a year which provides 10 Pandisc’s and a Business version with unlimited Pandisc’s for £160 a year.
