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.

  • Hands down - Best planner app I have ever used

    By Hizzle8
    Seriously, this app is everything I could need in my life right now. I'm pretty old fashioned and like to write most of my events and tasks down in a physical planner, but I have learned I also need that info on the go as I have become a busy adult. I’ve searched for different apps to assist with my organization, but none have done it quite so well as this one. Working on my PhD coursework, research, advisor tasks, plus new-mom duties to take care of my 6 month old, and building a business... this app helps me keep my head together. I need this app to stay around forever, so please don’t disappear or phase out!! When I tell others (everyone, basically) about why I love this app, my description boils down to “lists, on lists, on lists” which is perfect for an organizer like myself!! I never thought I would be over the moon anything by Microsoft but this app pleasantly surprised me. Keep doing your thing, y’all!!
  • Calendar integration?

    By remustherhesus
    Another bad review for a set of mediocre Products. Without Calendar integration this app is simply a spreadsheet with a skin pasted on it. Not terribly useful. Would it kill them to give us a decent Calendar app, a la google calendars? I’m using this now because it is what my company uses. Personally I would choose Google
  • Surprisingly easy to jump in and begin using

    By Love2climb
    I thought I was going to have to spend a lot of time studying this app out before begin using it. It only took me a few minutes and I started our team on the path of more focused planning! Thanks you guys at Microsoft.
  • Screen size

    By GrowMiller
    This app doesn’t fit my screen. What’s up with that
  • Easy & Convenient

    By MichaelC2
    Accessing the planner from mobile device while watching the baseball game; it’s so convenient! Updating the project work and checking the status and timelines/due dates is very easy.
  • Not worth the time

    By Hummy3000
    Bloated and missing simple functionality
  • Needs a Dark Mode Like Teams

    By T3cHnOs
    Awsome App but needs dark mode like Teams.
  • Sub-Par compared to market leaders

    By JacobFlowers
    This app needs a lot of work. Falls behind Trello Asana, and Monday. No list view options. Cannot add sub-tasks. Cannot link tasks on other boards. Disappointing considering Microsoft resources. Also, integration with Sharepoint, OneDrive is a complete nightmare. This has a lot of potential, but It is clear that product groups are not working well together. The whole suite is bloated, unintuitive, and buggy. Not recommended, unless you are strapped for cash, and can’t invest in a better PM tool, since planner comes wrapped in a 365 subscription.
  • Pretty good (very basic)

    By J180
    Notifications for due dates would be great. More granular filtering would also be great. Seems to be a bug adding sub tasks (if you open a task and add sub tasks before closing/re-opening main task, they disappear. Overall useful for basic Kanban needs.
  • Doesn’t persist selections

    By NikaoMatix
    Each work day, I have to keep selecting filter by due date instead of progress for “My Tasks”. That’s not the only thing that doesn’t persist but expected My Tasks to stick by user settings. It’s a standard feature in other task management tools.
