    I was not getting much traction recently with an Excel RAID log but things improved after I converted it to a Microsoft Planner file. Using it’s ‘labels’ feature, I can view r.a.i.d.’s per person assigned, per project team, per deadline.  The reporting sucks but I believe MSFT will improve this in 2019.

    I’ve never used Microsoft Planner!  Sounds like a nicer UI Pivot table?

    Not as complex as JIRA, but not as simple as Trello.  Inside of a ‘Microsoft shop’ it’s often a free tool within Office365 that then ties to people’s email notifications or attach from SharePoint files, etc.   And yes, you can pivot the view of tasks (as cards) by a couple different ways.
