Microsoft Loop, an all-in-one solution for Microsoft 365 and a strong Notion competitor, is now available in public preview. Following the success of Microsoft 365 Copilot and Bing AI, Microsoft continues its innovative streak in 2023.

The Loop app offers workspaces and pages for organizing documents, projects, and more. Its unique feature allows any Loop page to become a real-time block, easily copied and pasted into Microsoft Teams, Outlook, Word on the web, and Whiteboard. Dynamic Loop components keep your team in sync.

Microsoft Loop: An AI-Powered, Collaborative Platform

The Microsoft Loop app is a game-changing co-creation platform that syncs teams, documents, and tasks across devices. Shared Loop components are always up to date and editable by teammates. Embed a table, for example, as a Loop component in a Teams message or Outlook email, and any changes update everywhere it’s shared.

Understanding Microsoft Loop: Components, Pages, Tasks across Workspaces

Microsoft’s blog post outlines three key elements of Loop, each contributing to project success and team communication:

  1. Loop Components: These movable pieces of information stay consistent wherever they’re used. Components enable seamless teamwork across Loop pages, conversations, email threads, meetings, or documents. Microsoft apps like Teams, Outlook, Word, Whiteboard, and the Loop app always have the most up-to-date information, including lists, tables, and notes.
  2. Loop Pages: As blank canvases in the Loop app, these pages allow you and your team to collaborate on components, links, tasks, and data. Loop pages can be as concise or detailed as needed, and any page in Loop can be linked to or integrated into other M365 apps.
  3. Loop Workspaces: Collaborative spaces for organizing project information, Loop workspaces make it easy to track everyone’s progress and tasks.
