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.



  • All I need

    By catalajp
    Perfect flow
  • Great but comments in tasks doesn’t allow me to tag teammate

    By ps490
    Great app! It still has some limitations. Efficiency decreases when teammates can’t be notified of a comment for a specific project. Also, It doesn’t allow us to set due dates and completion dates for specific task items, which makes it harder to track task progress.
  • This app is amazing

    By Philasonic
    I never write reviews but I love this app so much. The web portal version is great too. And the integration with Microsoft To Do. Bar graphs and pie charts. Helps me make sure things don’t slip through the cracks.
  • Needs work

    By MSuserID
    A planner should allow you to plan hour by hour, not just by using due dates. This app can only be used as a list of tasks that can be scheduled into a real planner.
  • Not smartly integrated with MS Teams

    By Scudey
    As a stand-alone app, it works for very simplified task-oriented project management. I wish it had more color labels instead of being limited. Regardless, it works good enough. I’m mostly disappointed in the way it is difficult to work with from inside MS Teams. Mainly, it is currently impossible to build a “template” Planner to use in a repetitive process situation for other groups or Teams. That is the one thing keeping me from rating this better. Otherwise, it works good enough.
  • Junk

    Needs more design
  • Missing It

    By radtrinidad
    Used this extensively in my work. Would love to use it for home but ... it’s not supported for the home suite. ☹️ Guess I’ll have to use Trel
  • Good software-needs Gantt chart capabilities

    By Duc Bui
    Planner is a solid tool and definitely worth using. It integrates well with Teams and the rest of the Microsoft suite. However, it really needs Gantt chart capability to be a great tool. I’m sure Microsoft is concerned about it eroding their customer base for Project, but I don’t think that’s the case.
  • This would be cooler if it integrated with outlook

    By Boston Cleantech
    Overall this is a pretty good app and a pretty good task planning tool. As a primarily business user, outlook has been home base for long time and it is intuitive. I get that different users like different UIs. But for me I wish that Planner and Teams (and other Office 365 apps) were seamlessly integrated with Outlook. Calendar is integrated with the Outlook iPhone app but why not Planner and Teams? All of these systems seem like they want to connect with each other seamlessly but then they don’t and you end up stuck in silos. The breakthrough for the Office 365 suite will be when MS makes the dynamic work platform of Office available in a unified user interface. For me that ideal interface would be Outlook with all others hanging therefrom. Outlook email groups, Teams channels, Planner threads all tend to get siloed from each other (there is a wonky method for connecting some of these but it is not easy and doesn’t work fully). Yet these are essentially the same workflow data, just with different UI interaction points.
  • Created Task Disappears/Deletes From Plan Bucket

    By D775575
    Of recent (1 month) I have noticed tasks created in buckets seem to disappear/delete on its own which can be frustrating as these tasks have checklists and simply recreating the task and remembering what was checked or not can be annoying. Other than this, the app is great and perfect. Thanks.
