Microsoft Planner

Microsoft Planner is a project management, collaboration, and project management solution for users and their teams. It is an online subscription service included with Office 365. In a Kanban-board-style workspace, users can quickly create new plans, assign tasks to team members, chat about tasks, and track team and individual progress. 

The drag-and-drop interface of Microsoft Planner software allows users to easily categorize tasks, update statuses, and assign tasks. Furthermore, MS Planner serves as a focal point, ensuring that team members are always aware of what everyone is working on. 

Microsoft Planner Features

Work Organization

People who have an Office 365 work or school subscription can access Microsoft Planner. It is simple to begin a new plan. They can give it a name, specify who can see it (public or private), and include descriptions. They can quickly add tasks to the to-do list or bucket after creating the plan. Then, for the organization, users can add more buckets and sort the tasks into these different buckets. Finally, they can add plan members to assign tasks to them. They can move the functions around by dragging and dropping them. 

Customizable Task boards

The main feature of Microsoft Planner is its flexible Kanban boards, which can be moved and positioned freely on the workspace by dragging and dropping them. Users can use them to create a workflow for their team, assign roles to team members, and assign tasks to them. Attaching files and links to the boards is possible. 

Collaboration

Users can use task management to empower everyone on their team, regardless of role or expertise, to manage tasks more effectively. The Planner provides teams with an intuitive, collaborative, and visual task management experience to help them get things done. 

Email notifications and visual dashboards

The Microsoft Planner project management serves as a focal point, ensuring that team members are always aware of what everyone is working on. With visual dashboards and email notifications, users can create plans, organize and assign tasks, collaborate with others, share files, and keep team members up to date on updates and progress. 

Progress Monitoring

Microsoft Planner is compatible with desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. It has a chart view in addition to the board view, which provides a quick and colorful overview of the plan's progress. Users can select chart sections to see the number of tasks represented, and the four task statuses—Completed, In Progress, Late, and Not Started—are color-coded across the charts. They can also use the Group by and Filter options to see which tasks are running out of time, for example. Users can also see who is currently overloaded.

Microsoft Planner Reviews

If users want to integrate Microsoft Planner with other Microsoft tools, it is an excellent choice. It allows users to control their tasks and see the overall project status in one place while managing multiple projects with multiple teams. However, the majority of users give it a rating of 4 to 4.5 out of 5. 

Our Thoughts

Microsoft Planner is fully integrated into the Office365 suite of applications. The planner is also integrated with Microsoft To-Do, SharePoint, Power Automate, and other apps in Microsoft 365 for efficient task management. It's a quick way to get organized, manage work visually, and stay on track. So, if you’re looking for a team planner or work calendar, we recommend using Microsoft Office Planner as a primary tool for that purpose because it offers compatibility across the board.
