Office 365 Planner offers people a simple and highly visual way to organize teamwork. Planner makes it easy for your team to create new plans, organize and assign tasks, share files, chat about what you’re working on, and get updates on progress. But it all has to be done from the Online Planner, and this is just not the way we work.
After having a success with the iPlanner Outlook Add-in for Outlook, we decided to make a Planner Business Collection with the purpose of making it easier to work with Planner Tasks seamlessly across some of the Office 365 services.
iPlanner Business Collection. You'll get additional tools that will enable you to manage your tasks and projects seamlessly across O365. From Outlook, Groups, Group calendar, Planner to SharePoint Online. On top of that you will be able to manage tasks and resources with your most favorite tool, Excel.
The Business Collection will offer:
The question is, what else will enhance the usage of the Office 365 Planner?

Thank you for great input.
Beside that, did you try the iPlanner Pro Outlook Add-in? I would very much like feedback on that Add-in.

Very interesting. I did not think of that. Let me look into it and see if it is possible.

Thanks for your response. I have just downloaded the Outlook add-in and find it very useful to manage the tasks. I am looking forward to the excell add-in because I feel that will give me the reporting mechanisms needed to make this a powerful (goal) planning tool.

I am happy to hear that. I wanted to attach a GANTT template for Excel. But apperently this blog don't support uploding attachments with excel file extention. If you send an email to email@example.com I will send you the GANNT template.
All you will have ti do is the follwoing. Use the add-in to get your tasksinto Excel. Simply copy the data from the table and past it into the table with the GANTT chart.
I would appriciate any suggestions for improvment.
I would also appriciate it if you could be so klind as to make a review in the Store - https://store.office.com/en-001/app.aspx?assetid=WA104380686

I need a couple of things to be able to use Planner for projects at work. One is a Gantt chart, the other is the ability to print. I see that you have an Excel add-on, I will look at that to see if that helps.
