Hello dear readers of negarinfo , Let’s jump in the subject “another way to say not on the same page” .
Hope you enjoy the article. Thanks for being with us to the end.
What is a formal alternative for being “on the same page”?
One uses the expression “on the same page” to avoid having to actually specify what that immediately means. Conversely, then, a more formal expression would require one to actually detail what the agreement is about — what we are agreed on.
As per the question, then, you would say something like, “Do we all concur that the latest task and the planned tasks for the upcoming week are steps in the right direction?”. [The OP might like to actually think more carefully about what exactly is in question.]
Something short is presumably preferable. Thus (e.g.), “Are we all in agreement around/on the plan and priorities?”.

Alternatively, you could talk about the inverse — “Does anyone have any ideas or objections around the direction we are taking?”. Note that this is more of an invitation for comment, where the other is more of a statement that we are closing now.
Is it grammatically correct to say, “be on the same page,” or “be in the same page”?
It is, from a prescriptivist approach, grammatically correct to say ‘be ON the same page’ as ‘on’ is the appropriate preposition
when talking about reading/looking at a page. This is also a fixed idiom and, as such, is largely accepted as being unable to
deviate from the standard. However, as stated, these ideas are bound within prescriptivist notions (as opposed to descriptivist)
and are, thus, only one side of a very complex coin, and no one person would probably be likely to argue that you are unequivocally
wrong for using ‘in’ unless you were a) a second language learner or b) using the language differently from those
within your wider social circle. In this case, the former would probably be obvious to a native speaker, and the latter
could only be concluded after an analysis of where you grew up or how the people around you use the phrase.
To further elaborate, I am an ESL teacher, and it is, therefore, my job to teach second language learners the ‘rules’ (prescriptivism)
when teaching the language, but if a group of native English speakers deviate from said rules, can I then tell them,
fellow native speakers, that they are wrong? No.
Some people may say that not following the rules can be seen as the catalyst for the deterioration of the English language,
but if all people were sticklers for the rules and only used language in a prescriptivist way, we would all still be speaking Shakespearean English.
