Another solid Microsoft tool

Reviewed on 2020/10/15

Overall, this is another solid Microsoft tool and helps teams stay more organized.

Pros

Microsoft Planner is a good tool for planning among teams, keeping track of ongoing projects that are multilayered. It's easy to use and is integrated with other Microsoft apps.

Cons

One big feature I think is lacking for Microsoft Planner is the notifications. I had a hard time tagging coworkers and getting email notifications.

Limited Features, but at least it's free.

Pros

Planner was designed to provide many of the features of Wrike that was drawing customers away from Microsoft. It's an easy to use task management system. You can collaborate with teammates and keep track of different tasks.

Cons

Unfortunately, some of the critical capabilities like setting recurring tasks, and saving dashboard views of items to be completed, have not yet made it to Planner.

Not what it could be, but it's probably on purpose ; )

Reviewed on 2021/03/27

It's definitely love and hate. It's great for short-term tasks and reminders. But not great for team collaboration and projects. I know MS has a separate tool they like to upsell to but we were really hoping this would have some more basic task features.

Pros

The planner is principally great because it's native to Microsoft. Especially in MS Teams, it's super to manage single tasks.

Cons

It does have limits in the enterprise tier we have. The most annoying is that we can't tag team members in the comments of tasks and we can't create sub-tasks within it.

Microsoft Planner and Mac

Reviewed on 2018/12/16

Pros

Microsoft Planner is a nice addition to the Microsoft Suite but as a Mac user I find the interface can be cumbersome. The cost of purchasing an additional platform outweighs any inherent benefit.

Cons

Ease of interface with Mac, constant updates, almost daily, and cost are three barriers to my continued use.
