Planner features compared to SharePoint lists

Iron Contributor

We want to have a project management tool inside our Office 365. And we are not sure if we should use Planner or SharePoint lists. now I have more than 10 years of experience in SharePoint, but never used Planner before. so are those features available in Planner: -

  1. Can we customize the planner task statuses options, beyond the built-in options?
  2. Can we add more columns inside the Planner tasks?
  3. When creating a planner task can we define custom permissions? For example, can we define that only the Assigned To user can view the task or can edit it? and after submitting it, only the user manager can approve or reject it?
  4. In SharePoint lists doing the permissions and approvals (as mentioned in point 3) is available, but SharePoint lists can only have up to 50,000 items with unique permissions, so in planner do we have the same limitation of the number of tasks that can have unique permissions?
  5. can we customize the planner interface using Power Apps?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Same here, i ll follow your thread for experts to shine in.

I suggest you have a look at planner API and powerplaform connections, which are currrently very limited.
