See the big picture with ProductPlan, and drag & drop your work items to plan your sprints with Sprint Drop Plan calendar in the June Team Services Extensions Round-up

This month I’ve got two extensions to enhance how you plan. Whether you’re sharing a product roadmap with partners, or planning a sprint for your engineering team, the Marketplace continues to have you covered.

ProductPlan

I am a big fan of communicating the big picture to my team and partners. It helps align everyone to the team goals and empowers more people to notice when something may not be lining up. This is why I am happy to announce that our partners at ProductPlan have brought their roadmap solution to the Team Services Marketplace.

ProductPlan is the easiest way to plan and communicate your product strategy
