My goal is to use a planner just with a group of individuals in my organisation, while others should not access the planner. I would like to deliver access to the planner via MS Teams.

 

I appreciate that the planner currently does not allow for access management by using permissions. I can find conversations about this feature that dates yrs back. so I assume this is on the backlog, but not yet in the roadmap.

I also see many conversations about the inability to add the planner to a private channel via MSTeams. 

 

What is the community doing about planners that need to be limited to some users in the organisation, yet shared with some?

 

the only way I can see out of this is to create a new dedicated team to handle a planner. Is there a more efficient way?

 

Thanks

As of now, a planner Plan is tied to a Office 365 group, which means that everyone in this group (team) can access it! Either you create teams based on who will have access to the plan or you use a website tab to paste the url from another plan into any channels of a team used today. Only the members in that team that also are members of that other teams plan will have access.

You can create sub plans in a team and add different ones in the channels but these are indeed accessible to all members
