Our Vision for Planner in Microsoft Teams
Published Dec 19 2016 02:12 PM 62.1K Views

With the release of Microsoft Teams, Office 365 customers can now use Planner in the same interface as their shared chat-based workspace. While Teams is in Preview, the Planner tab will have a limited feature set, with a plan to roll out a fully featured integration in the upcoming months. Even with limited features, we have received plenty of positive feedback in addition to questions about what the fully featured Planner integration will look like, and we wanted to share our plans about how we envision the future of Planner and Microsoft Teams:


-We will make working across Planner and Microsoft Teams a seamless experience, where plans fully integrate across applications.  

-We will add support for selecting your existing Plans from Planner as Tabs in Microsoft Teams. 

-From a Planner Tab in Teams, you will be able to launch the full Planner experience to access capabilities like Charts and other views. 

-Users will the ability to have multiple plans per Office 365 Group within Planner.  When we complete that work, you’ll also be access any of the Plans you started in Teams as well. 


While there are currently some feature differences between the Planner tab in Microsoft Teams and the Planner web experience, our overall direction is to support the same core feature set – attachments, notifications, “group by” views, and others. We have a few other integration ideas in the pipeline, and we’ll share more details as we further develop our plans. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please submit them on our UserVoice site.
