About this app

Microsoft Planner requires an eligible Office 365 work or school subscription. This app does not support Office 365 personal accounts (for example: or If you are not sure about your company’s subscription or the services you have access to, please contact your IT department.

Planner provides a simple, visual way to organize teamwork. Planner makes it easy for your team to create new plans, organize and assign tasks, share files, chat about what you’re working on, and get updates on progress.

-- Organize work visually --
Each plan has its own board, where you can organize tasks into buckets. You can categorize tasks based on their status or on whom they’re assigned to. To update the status or change assignments, just drag and drop tasks between columns.

-- Visibility --
The My Tasks view provides a comprehensive list of all your tasks and their status across all your plans. When working together on a plan, team members always know who is working on what.

-- Collaborate --
Built for Office 365, Planner lets you work together on the same tasks, attach captured photos directly to them, and even have conversations around tasks without switching between apps. With Planner, all your team’s discussions and deliverables stay with the plan and don’t get locked away across disparate applications.

-- Works across devices --
Planner works across all your devices. And with Planner, everyone is always on the same page. Continue conversations and updates tasks while on-the-go or at your desk.

App is easy to use but not really helpful for my use case since I can't copy any tasks (trying to copy formatting), I can only manage what is already there. Great potential if it can mimic everything the desktop app/webpage does. App crashes randomly which is very frustrating as I use this for work and time is money. It also keeps unpinning my plans and puts them at the bottom of the recent list. comments and attachments get "mixed up" between tasks and information doesn't display properly.

It's very frustrating when you can't even use the app because it doesn't recognize your Outlook email address. I'm getting a message in red stating, "We couldn't find a work or school account with that email address." I really don't understand. All the other Microsoft apps work fine with my email address. There are no spelling errors or anything when I'm trying to sign in. It's very frustrating!

For managing projects and keeping tabs on tasks, this app does just that. I was looking for an easy to use project management software that worked on my phone and desktop. This being from Microsoft, I was able to quickly link up my account and get to work. Even better it's looks good on my Samsung Z Fold4. You can assign tasks to individuals, assign color categories/labels and set a task to be reoccurring. I do appreciate the notes areas where documents can be attached or websites added.
