Organize teamwork visually

Microsoft Planner lets you create, manage, and complete tasks with anyone in your organization through a single, easy-to-use portal. The secure, cloud-based tool provides access to your entire group from all devices, so no one misses a step.

Get Started

1
Simplify task management

The Planner Board collects all plan data onto one easy-to-read page so you can quickly get up to speed on plan developments. With a glance, you can see who’s working on what and when tasks are due. Never miss another deadline.

Break your plan into tasks that are easily tracked and completed. You can name a task, add details, and set its due date at the same time. The task page is the home for all aspects of the task – its people, files, and timelines.

Update plans from anywhere

Groups can collaborate from wherever they are; being in the same room is no longer a requirement to effectively work together. Planner captures and organizes meeting notes in the plan notebook, and calendaring meetings and events is a snap when all group members share the same calendar page. Office files are also stored in OneDrive so all group members can access and modify them.

Track task progress to completion

Planner tracks developments by task status. Tasks are either not started, in progress or complete. You can also add a checklist to track and keep a task organized. The ‘Chart view’ lets you see the “big picture” of all tasks and how they are progressing toward plan completion.
