Don McCullin Knighted for His Services to Photography

“THE QUEEN has been graciously pleased to signify her intention of conferring the honour of Knighthood upon the undermentioned: Donald McCULLIN, C.B.E., Photojournalist. For services to Photography.”

The 81-year-old McCullin first began his photography career nearly 60 years ago, in 1959. Much of his word in that time has focused on war and the needy in society.

Microsoft shares its vision for Planner in Microsoft Teams

  • We will make working across Planner and Microsoft Teams a seamless experience, where plans fully integrate across applications.
  • We will add support for selecting your existing Plans from Planner as Tabs in Microsoft Teams.
  • From a Planner Tab in Teams, you will be able to launch the full Planner experience to access capabilities like Charts and other views.
  • Users will the ability to have multiple plans per Office 365 Group within Planner. When we complete that work, you’ll also be access any of the Plans you started in Teams as well.

It’s been pretty disjointed; there is no mobile app, it has integrated with Teams and it’s a bit confusing as to which one to use. I’ve got several Planners in Sharepoint and Teams and they aren’t connected at all.
