We have a customer that wants to move between Office 365 tenants, but has heavily invested in Planner over the past few months.

Is there a way using the Microsoft Graph to export/import the buckets and tasks?

Yes, possible. https://graph.microsoft.io/en-us/docs/api-reference/beta/resources/task If you are looking for an easier way, you can try Apps4.Pro Planner Outlook add-in which allows you to export / import tasks using excel.

Thanks Santosh. Can it bring over permissions, checklists, comments or any attachments within those tasks?

Hi @Loryan Strant, We have not yet supported complete Plan migration. But you can able to Export / Import tasks from plans.  All tasks fields are supported in Export / Import. 
Exceptions: 
- You can able to export comments to excel but cannot import because of API limitation. 
- Attachments will be exported as links. You need to change those links with new storage location during import.

 

If you need any corrections to use this, please let me know.

I think this is wrong - there's no way to export tasks from plans currently.

 

If there is, can someone tell me where to find this feature?

Highlighted
It's not - I've used the tool that Santosh suggested and it works fine.
The functionality doesn't exist as a feature of Planner, it requires a third-party tool at this point.

Hi Samuel, It is possible to export using an approved MS process here https://support.office.com/en-us/article/export-user-data-from-microsoft-planner-91258c96-b353-4da1-... . There isn't a supported way to import the data though! Santhosh's tools work well and he clearly states what they can and cannot do. Worth a try.

Hi @Bryan deSilva, thanks for your feedback. You can overcome these limitations during export / import by using our Planner Manager Chrome Extension.

- You can able to export comments to excel but cannot import because of API limitation. 
- Attachments will be exported as links. You need to change those links with new storage location during import.

Hi Loryan 

Here is a complete, tested solution on the following blog. 

How to migrate Microsoft Planner data from one tenant to another Office 365 tenant.

@Loryan Strant 
See this is an old post, but I thought this might be useful for people.

I have created a Planner tenant to tenant migration script.
