Microsoft Loop! Recreated Notion?
Microsoft Loop, a new app that combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across Microsoft Products enabling teams to think, plan, and create together.
Microsoft Loop consists of three elements: Loop components, Loop pages, and Loop workspaces.
Microsoft Loop blurs the distinction between a shared document and a shared workspace, as both Microsoft and rival Google have tried to establish over the past two years. Microsoft describes Loop as “a new app that combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across Microsoft 365 apps, enabling teams to think, plan, and create together.”
Workspaces: These are spaces that allow you and your team to group things in a project. You can see what everyone is doing and track progress.
Pages: These are "canvases" for you to organise components and pull in links, files, or data for a project. They're flexible, growing as you add to them.
Components: Microsoft describes components as "atomic units of productivity that allow you to collaborate" on a Loop page or in a chat, email, meeting, or document. Components can be lists, tables, notes, or something as specific as a customer sales opportunity from Dynamics 365.
When will Microsoft Loop be available?
Microsoft hasn't said when the Loop app will be available, but it said Loop components have begun to roll out in other Office apps - like Teams, Outlook, and OneNote.
