If I have a planner for each of say three channels, how do I then see a consolidated view across the three planners?

There is not such a consolidate view in Teams Today....while it's true Microsoft is working on improving Planner integration inside Teams, there are not specific news around your request.

Thanks for the input @Juan Carlos González Martín. There is someone in our organisation that has used Flow and Power Bi to at least provide a consolidated dashboard across planners. I'll use that for now until improved planner integration is at hand...

Do we have any update on this ? In a large project with multiple channel, having a consolidated view of some sort would be a great time saver.

An Update would be helpful!

I'd like an update to this as well.

Hi Stefanos,

 

Since all "3" of the task boards are most probably thematically different, I don't see why you would want to mix them. If you are interested in getting a consolidated View of Tasks currently assigned to yourself, you would have to use the native "Planner" experience. for example via Browser ( https://tasks.office.com - and then "My Tasks"). I know this would break the "Hub" experience within teams, but it is the only thing that i could think of as an alternative at the moment. I hope this helps.

I'm looking at more from seeing particular persons (other than myself) across various channels as our teams work on multiple channel tasks at the same time. Although the themes are different the people actively participating are working on multiple streams/channels at the same time.

Hi Stefanos - Any chance you can share or describe that Flow for consolidating multiple Planners into a single Power Bi dashboard?

@Juan Zambrano 

Hi Juan,

 

Yes, the planners might be thematically different, however, it is really the schedule that would be most helpful to have consolidated, in my case.  Would you have an update on that aspect of consolidating multiple planners across channels?

 

Thanks,

Marti

Hi Marti,

 

not that I'm aware of, but it seems like what you are looking for has already been discussed on user voice and is currently flagged under "tell us more" so it would be great if you can add some input there. https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/15608670-vi...

@Stefanos Papadopoulos Do you mind sharing that flow?  This would be extremely handy to us.

Highlighted

@shawn_fielding The use-case I have isn't based upon viewing a single person's tasks across multiple channels but as a director wanting to combine the plans for all the subordinate teams to see how loaded the teams are collectively.  This is important as projects are put in plans based upon who is leading them and we share resources between the different teams.

@FPiotrowski 

 

Hello. I am also looking for a similar type of consolidation. I have different Teams who use the same type of channels and we use MSPlanner in the General Channel only. One of our buckets in MSPlanner is always "DESIGN" where we tasked drafters to complete drawings. The Design Manager would love to have all DESIGN buckets from ALL teams consolidated into one so that he can manage his resources. Any idea on how this could be achieved? I believe we cannot do that as of today 8/13/2020.

@FPiotrowski   Did you ever get a workable solution for this?   As I am experiencing the same challenge./

 

Thanks.
