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. Terms of service: Privacy policy: To learn more, please visit The Microsoft Planner app will request permission to access your photos and your camera: When you try to attach a photo to a Planner task, the app requests permission to access your Photos app in order to select images.

  • Great concept, would be nice for personal use

  • Neat Idea, But Very Limited

    By HuskerJC
    A great concept, but unable to manipulate plans or buckets. It would be much more useful if you could move buckets into different plans. Or move plans into MS Teams. My organization would like to merge our existing plans into Teams, but are unable to do this without recreating all of our plans within Teams.

    Keep the updates coming, this is a great addition to managing strategic initiatives and alignment between the “TEAMS” product as well!
  • Lacks most of the web apps functionality

    By The Ninth Hermit
    The app has improved in reliability since I first wrote this review, but it is still lacking several critical features like search and keyword filters. There is hope it will eventually be useful. ________\\\\\ I use the browser based app exclusively after trying to use what passes for the iOS app. I’ve experienced frequent data loss, with entries and even tasks entered through the iOS app completely disappearing. This version lacks the filters a search features that make the browser based app usable. Don’t bother with tis app, which is just a waste of space. Access Planner through your favorite browser.

    Why is this not available to use on a “personal” level? You are able to add a work or school email address but can’t do personal. I love Microsoft outlook and use it for my personal email - would love to be able to use this.

  • Needs a trash bin so accidentally deleted buckets can be saved,

    By Snoopy19670724
    I accidentally erased 59 task from my planner and unfortunately I have no recourse to bring them back. That’s unfortunate as I will now lose time and energy to restore all of those task, which I had been building upon each since the beginning of the year.
  • Please update

    Through the years I have used many different pieces of software and tried to develop many different practices, to schedule my life both at work and at home. Planner is simple quick and efficient. I would like to see a little bit more customization allowed, so that it works a little bit more streamlined. There is a large crevasse between Microsoft planner and Microsoft project finding something close to the middle would be optimal for the users of Microsoft. But I was trying to run with the premise do not let perfection get in the way of progress - CLewis
