Part of the Microsoft Office 365 productivity apps suite, the Planner App provides free, easy to use, project management functionality without the financial costs associated with other products such as Microsoft Project.

Tasks can be displayed on cards or in a calendar view, can be filtered by user, due date, late, among other options, making it easy to keep abreast of what is happening and when. A centralised hub provides access to all the plans you have been added to, while choosing My Tasks and the Charts option, provides a great overview of the current status of tasks in a nice, easy to read dashboard:
