Microsoft Places in public pre-release

I’m delighted to share this exciting news with you! Today, Microsoft announced that Microsoft Places is now available as a public pre-release.

Microsoft Places is an application designed to enrich your flexible working experience thanks to artificial intelligence. It aims to harmonize physical and digital space, enabling more natural and intuitive collaboration, whether you’re in the office, at home or on the move.

What is Microsoft Places?

Microsoft Places is the result of Microsoft’s ongoing innovation in artificial intelligence and hybrid working. This platform integrates advanced features to optimize workspace management, meeting planning and real-time collaboration.

Plan where you want to work

With Places, you’ll find it easier to coordinate tasks between colleagues and between office spaces. Places location plan lets you define and share your proposed location schedule with your colleagues while consulting their plans.

Setting or changing your location is always available in the Places application, but will also be available as part of your regular Outlook calendar workflow. With a simple click, you can adjust your schedule and access an overview map, which shows your closest colleagues who are planning to come into the office, and provides quick access to space reservation for more information. There’s also a link on the overview card that lets you see all your colleagues’ schedules in the Places application.

Thanks to the team tips in Places, managers communicate which days their team should plan to be in the office, and what the priorities are for each working day. Giving team days at the office a purpose gives you another reason to come to the office😊.

From the location search in Outlook, you can now search for rooms and offices and receive additional information to guide your booking decision. The location finder displays images of the room or office pool, includes a map of the location of the space within the office, and offers details of available technology or other equipment.
