My organisation is moving towards using Teams and Planner in the near future and I have been asked to put together some documentation on how the different aspects work. For the most part, I've been getting on well with Teams but am a bit confused by one of the tabs. When I select planner, there is an activity tab which is blank apart from a message saying "Hover over the profile card to see information about this bot." I'm struggling to see this profile card and was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I've attached a screenshot of the page in question.

Hi Craig,

 

This is an interesting question - I myself have wondered about this for a while so I did some digging.

 

The profile card does not exist because there is no bot in Planner. Compare this to Who App with the screenshot shown here which shows the bot

Therefore the activity space is for a bot, which may be forthcoming or may not. The only bots that I am aware of that Microsoft released themselves are T-Bot and Who. Maybe it is for a third party bot or a future release.

 

Hope that helps to clarify. A great user guide on Planner can be found here in this article by Matt Soseman in Corp: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/skypehybridguy/2017/08/30/microsoft-teams-using-planner-to-stay-...

Thanks for that Chris, you've been a big help

No problem, thanks Craig, if you could mark the answer above as the solution that would be fantastic! Best, Chris

A Planner Bot should come and the experience should be the same / similar to the one you get when adding Flow App in Teams. There you have a bot to whom you can ask about Flow

Thanks Juan,

 

I have taken a screenshot of Flow and Planner. In my tenant it doesn't look the same as Flow because you haven't got a search bar at the bottom of the tab

Not sure if I follow you here, but in Flow you have the expected Bot and in Planner no. What I mean is that I expect the same experience in Planner ;)

Absolutely Juan - we expect the same! Apologies for any misalignment :D

Thank you for the explanation. I had the same question as OP.

By the way your link for the guide is not working, I'm reposting an updated link.
