Microsoft Planner

Microsoft Planner is a Microsoft 365 task management feature (similar to Slack or Trello) that integrates with Microsoft Teams. Planner allows members of a Microsoft Team to quickly create buckets and tasks to organise and assign work. The Planner tasks can be managed from within the Teams interface or by going to the Planner web app. Tasks can be assigned to one or more team members with progress status, due dates and checklists.

For more general information about Microsoft Planner, please see our Microsoft Planner page.
