Familiarizing yourself with Azure Boards and Utilizing them for projects

Azure Boards helps us to plan, track, discuss, and follow up on any tasks across our teams. It might be useful for us in tracking our work logs with a Kanban board, as well as being a place to tag and communicate critical ideas among the team. If your team is suited to agile work planning, then Azure Boards can be a great choice for assigning and tracking tasks. We could easily build our own board and backlog, run a daily sprint, and keep tracking our important work.
