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.

I believe there are some other apps that work better than this. However, this is Microsoft we are talking about. The app itself is alright, just alright. We use it for every day project tracking. The schedule isn't syncing up properly with Outlook Calendar. The interface is clean, but could be more comprehensive. First time users often have a hard time finding the plans they're involved with, and creating a blank one instead...

The UI is not totally intuitive or fluid and the lack of a dark mode is always a negative. Integration across devices and with Teams works well (but could still be more seamless with the latter). Correspondingly, the lack of a desktop app is a definite shortcoming: I often have many tabs open in my browser and lose track of one or another.

It seems to be great program with a lot of various options for the typical Microsoft office 365 business platform. However it is incredibly frustrating that I can't take an email and directly link it to a task by attaching the e-mail to it in a seamless motion. It takes considerable amount of time trying to get one from the other and a lot of extra steps that should not take his long.
