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.



  • Planner is AMAZING

    By Timothy Ivory
    Both the computer and app align perfectly! I’m able to update and add notes as needed. It’s very friendly and the e-mail notifications for due dates are excellent. Great app!
  • Glitches

    By Obi Quez Wan Kenobi
    Closes on its own, takes too long to load (just like PC version). Not great for mobile updates
  • Needs a filter or search option

    By KF_99
    The mobile app needs a filter option like the desktop version.
  • Zero Stars

    By iPhone_7+_User_2020
    App should not be just for schools to use. It should ask for either a work/school email or a personal email. I don’t like this app for this reason and for this reason I deleted the app.
  • Can’t make any plans

    By TyloRen666
    I thought this app looked pretty good, but I can’t make any plans. Good design, and everyone else's seems to work though so 3 stars
  • Worst app I have ever used.

    By ruraho
    Nothing in the app works. It will not save/create any projects or tasks.
  • Space for improvement

    By pmatarazz
    It would be more useful if buckets and check list items had delivery date as well.
  • It’s a scrum board.

    By simmojb
    That’s it. Not useful for “true” project management (and MS Project is dead), a little overboard for ‘simple’ task management, and not really good for anything other than a scrum/kanban setup. A few tweaks and it could be really useful...
  • Microsoft is crushing it

    By Rjd2rjd2
    Recent updates have been excellent. Staying in one place (Microsoft) with all of our software just makes total sense now with Teams, Outlook and Planner (not to mention SharePoint and Power BI). This has been really good for our small business. Makes us feel like legit elite software for the big guys is finally accessible to all.
  • Great app

    Love the app. Any chance we can get dark mode soon?
