Personal Plan in Planner? In new Planner?

Steel Contributor

Hi,

 

I use O365 at work and at home (Family plan).  I know there's some changes coming that are combining ToDo, Planner, Project, etc.  I'm looking for details on how this will affect using Planner for Personal vs Team use.

 

At work, I'd love to have a personal plan I can use to track my daily tasks.  I currently have to use ToDo which is too simplistic.  If I go to Planner, and Create a new plan, my only option is "Add to existing group" which means I have to make a plan that connects to a Team.  I'm looking for the ability to create a plan for myself.  Will this be possible in the New Planner?  Is it possible now with some sort of config change?

 

At home, I'd love to use Planner for family tasks and projects.  I currently use Trello.  Planner is not available with Personal plans.  Will it be available with the new Planner?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Mike Boehm,

The upcoming Planner will introduce "Personal plans" designed for exclusive use by the creator, ensuring privacy and control.
These Personal plans can later be shared with Microsoft 365 groups if needed. It's important to note that certain features, such as uploaded attachments, links to SharePoint sites/OneNote, and comments on tasks, won't be supported in Personal plans.

The anticipated release for the new Planner is set for Spring 2024.

The enhanced Planner is also expected for personal use, making it a suitable tool for managing family tasks and projects.

This makes it a promising alternative to Trello.

@LeonPavesic Is there a specific date for this? I see it says Spring 2024.

The Planner feature you show above seems to be "in the new Planner app for Teams". There is a roadmap item earlier in the list called "Planner: Planner Personal Plans" with a rollout date of October 2023 and the status shows as "Launched". I would like to have a personal plan, but not within Teams. Within my company's account, I still need to specify an existing group.

Can you shed some light on this?

Thanks,
Errol
