Microsoft Planner requires an eligible Office 365 work or school subscription. This app does not support Office 365 personal accounts (for example: [email protected] or [email protected]). 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. If you choose to take a photo to attach to a Planner task, the app will request permission to access your Camera app.



  • Pisspoor Redaction of Function

    By ::Jay::
    Garbage. That you force me to the app from my smartphone isn’t enough, you redact the functions such that I cannot complete all the functions I could be able to online makes this app of absolutely no use to me except to update tasks. Such a shame that the developers didn’t stop to think whether they captured a robust enough amount of functionality in this crappy app.
  • “We cannot complete your request because Planner traffic is unusually high.”

    I’m a heavy Planner user. I began getting the error in the title of this review months ago whenever I add or edit an existing item. I’ve tried reinstalling, different phones, no clue as to what the issue could be. “Please try again in a few minutes,” the error concludes. I’ve tried using the app at random times throughout. Would give this 4 stars if it worked for me. As is, hard to recommend to others without a resolution.
  • Wish I Could Use

    By NickSchwartz
    As a person who is a high school student, I wanted to use this app. I have a 365 personal, but that does not give you access. A planner would be perfect for everyone, not just school account holders and business accounts.
  • Wont let me use app

    I’m college educated individual with no work account and no school account. I have a goal that I would like to plan out using his app, but I’m blocked from registering under a personal email. It’s a national park project. Please point am to another planning app.
  • Needs gannt chart and task dependency

    By bonz227
    This has a lot of potential as it is better integrated into teams than most 3rd party task tools, and including ms project. However the utter failing by forcing ms project or leaving for Asana, wrike etc is infuriating. Just when you want to adopt a new service that is understandably in its infancy you would expect plants for evolution towards the best and most useful simple features: gannt chart.
  • Planner app not in Microsoft 365 Subscription within Teams.

    Spent days trying to learn and utilize Microsoft Teams with intent of using task list via Planner. Discovered Planner is NOT included in Microsoft 365 subscription. Wasted a lot of time
  • Recurring Tasks & Alerts.

    By vj-hyd
    There is no way to assign Recurring Tasks to Team & set Recurring email Alerts.
  • Looks Great! Only Problem Is...

    By slade671
    I've looked at MC Planner and it looks good, but when I download it, it says I need to use a work / school email. I was really disappointed because I really wanted to use this but it doesn't work. I'm giving it a 5 start so that I don't discourage others, but can you please change it to make it a personal planner using a personal email? Thank you!
  • Using it to get organized

    By Ratonlo
    So far so good... wish I could sync across other software
  • Doesn’t work. Flows don’t run.

    I have used many tasks and project managment systems. This the worst one ever. Very disappointed in the experience.
