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. If you choose to take a photo to attach to a Planner task, the app will request permission to access your Camera app.



  • Annoying

    By sjs283
    Very basic, had several bugs that made it glitchy and slow. Every time I add a task if emails me (so annoying). And I can’t turn this off anywhere in the app.
  • Great app - needs reminders/notifications

    By Matt matter
    This app is everything I’ve been looking for! Except for one key feature - there are no reminders/notifications (stand-alone or integrated into apple’s Calendar). I’m currently using a flow to add items to outlook, but I’d appreciate it if they were in-app.
  • Mobile App Task Limits

    By SteveBDFW
    My company has used MS Planner for several years. We use both the desktop and mobile app’s. Recently the Planner mobile app began to limit the display to 400 tasks per plan. We have 4 buckets. We use many 1,000’s of tasks per plan. Planner has become near worthless to us since we depend on the mobile app. We have requested MS Tech Support, but were told there is no limitation of tasks. No help from MS Tech Support.
  • Great for school

    By Armando.US
    Planner quickly became my go-to for tracking and planning my class assignments. The dashboards look great and the quick, cross-platform syncing works like a charm. When you create a todo list for a task, you can reorder the todos on desktop. I’d love to see this in iOS.
  • Only for work or school

    By WaterWalker!
    I wanted to try an app that would help me organize and plan my personal tasks. Disappointed to find the app wouldn’t let me sign in with my Microsoft account (personal email). When I used my school email (soon to expire because I graduated), I was unable to create a plan because the “Your organization’s global admin has turned off the ability to create new Plans and Office 365 groups.”
  • Lost functionality without filters

    By CS Eng
    My supervisors insist on using the buckets as the means to separate different projects. This is fine, if you could use filters to sort out the different items that late, due today, or due yesterday. However, with the iPad app, you cannot use filters, so when you’re viewing what you have to do in the my tasks, you cannot see what project (bucket) that task is associated with, until you click on each individual task. Overall, I find myself pulling my hair out trying to have a simple way of organizing my tasks for several projects. When I point this out to my supervisors, they just tell me to not use my iPad for this tool, but just use the desktop version. Two stars for this app because if poor implementation.
  • Terrible

    By addisonbass
    Nothing like the desktop app. I can’t find anything.
  • Not great - functionality issues

    By DHSwims
    Could be useful but some of the functionality is lacking: 1) tasks are not automatically placed in due-date order but instead in order of entry, so a task with a Sept 1 deadline might be listed before a task with an Aug 1 deadline, unless you move it manually to the right position. Illogical. 2) Screen freezes at times when entering a new task; the “add” button doesn’t work. This happens when the icon for “buckets” appears with the calendar icon. 3) Can’t move the order of the buckets once they are created.
  • Buena y practica

    By liavzt
    Pero sería bueno poder invitar personas que no tienen mail institucional en proyectos donde se colabora con personas externas. Tambien sería una buena mejora agregar pegatinas :) para poder resaltar mas algunas tareas, como tiene trello.
  • Pretty good so far

    By Rico Vado
    Reasonably happy with us. Would appreciate better integration with outlook and ToDo.
