We have government G3 O365 subscriptions.  When will Planner be available to us?

 

Thanks

I have been hunting for this information for quite some time with no solid answer. All I do know is that each service team defines their own roadmaps on if / when to build out and support the required infrastructure within the GCC. Last I heard there was no ETA for Planner - which is quite disappointing :(

I know my answer is not going to help, but Planner rollout is supposed to be happening till the end of the year. By the way, have you tried to type directly tasks.office.com in the Url
Highlighted

Just tried the url you suggested.  Got a page back that said "they weren't ready for us yet".......

 

But thanks!

Juan,

 

I am actually more than happy with that answer. All of my inquiries have fallen into black holes and being able to tell my end users "within the next three months" would be great. Do you mind me asking where you got that information from?

 

Or, by "planner rollout", do you mean world-wide rollout of the Planner service to commercial tenants (which the GCC is not a part of)?

I heard this information directly from someone from Microsoft...by the way, I fear I cannot answer your question in regards what means WW rollout :-(.... pinging @Christophe Fiessinger so he can help us pinging someone from the Planner Team that could provide a more precise answer

@Christophe Fiessinger @Dave Heller Thanks for the information, we appreciate your continued support of Government customers.  It will be great to have a tool like this that will help us more efficiently provide essential services to our customers.  It is in that spirit that I want to ask if you could release this feature any earlier.  My users are clamoring for this feature and want to provide the service as soon as possible.  A clear Date [July 1st for instance :) ]  would also help us communicate to our customers.  A projected "end of 2017", might as well be "soon", while a date gives them a light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks again for your support!

Yes, sooner rather than later please!

We are still targeting release by EOY 2017, and I will let you know if that date moves. I appreciate the feedback, and please keep it coming!

Ditto to all these. We _need_ this out here in the perimeter...

Thanks for the past updates, looking forward to more news. Anything you can share since the last?
Highlighted

We too are with G3, and been patiently waiting for this to be rolled out. Looks like we still have 6 more months. I sure hope that things don't go even longer than EOY 2017.

Highlighted

Thank you - it is almost imposible to plan and get information about GCC.

According to this page:

 

https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2015/09/22/introducing-office-365-planner/

 

"

Q. Which Office 365 plans are eligible for Planner when generally available?

A. Planner will be included in the Office 365 Enterprise E1–E5 subscription plans (including corresponding Government and Non-Profit), Office 365 Business Essentials and Premium plans, and Office 365 Education."

Highlighted

And this page says:

 

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt774581.aspx

 

"11 Not yet available for Office 365 US Government Community or Office 365 US Government Defense plans, but coming soon."

 

Microsofts definition of soon is "years" rather than "months" or even "weeks".

And we also find this:

 

Microsoft Planner in GCC
Microsoft Planner helps users efficiently organize their teamwork. Teams can create new plans, organize and assign tasks, set due dates and update status. Planner also offers the ability to attach documents to specific tasks, edit them together and have conversations around tasks. Planner’s visual dashboards and email notifications help keep everyone informed on the overall progress of their initiative. Planner will be available in Office 365 US Government Community (GCC) when it meets the compliance commitments of the offering.

So, we just need it to meet compliance commitments.

Hi Folks-

We are now targeting H1 2018. We want Planner available to gov customers as much as anyone, and for a number of reasons, we're not able to deploy until then.

I apologize that we can't ship to the gov cloud sooner.

I appreciate the update Dave. My boss really wants this functionality and is telling me to shop for an alternative. I have been telling her to wait, but I'm not sure she is will to wait another 6 months. 

 

I really hate deploying something and shortly thereafter we find it available in something we already have been paying for.

What is the likelihood of meeting this new timeline? I already told executive staff it would come in December. I don't want to tell them June unless I'm sure. We were originally told Fall 2017 which ends December 20th.
Highlighted

Sounds like you are loosing customers!  And costing your customers money. . .

The long delay is really confusing given that you have already released it elsewhere. . . By the time it is released that will be > 1.6 years after the original release.  Actually, I think that will make it > 2 years after the original release. . .

 

 

Highlighted

Just a quick question - what does "H1" of 2018 mean? Does that mean the first half of 2018?

 

Thanks,

Highlighted

One can tell the priority put forth for "Government" customers.

Highlighted

 @Eray Chou , @Dave Heller any update?

 

Thanks for any news you can provide!

 

 

Highlighted

Add me to the list of those who need this feature NOW.  My customers are already shopping/procuring 3rd party products to fill this void.  It's frustrating that we are paying for all of these services that we are not receiving.  I was holding them off until the end of 2017, but if I tell them another 6 months, they won't believe it -- and honestly, neither do I. 

Highlighted

The Office 365 roadmap was updated to specify Q2 of CY2018. For whatever that is worth.. it's more specific than it was previously :) So many we can hope by the end of June?

Highlighted

Roadmap now says Q3 2018.  Updated on March 19th, 2018.

"Planner will be available in Office 365 US Government Community (GCC) when it meets the compliance commitments of the offering."

 

It's been pushed back for 2 years now, so who knows when it'll actually happen.  It is likely not Microsoft's fault.

Highlighted

Looks like they changed the date once more, and this time they actually have a month/year:

 

Microsoft Planner for GCC:

 

Estimated Release: May CY2018

Um, maybe it is out of compliance, maybe it actually will happen. Usually when they give a month, they are within 60 days, so this is good.

Highlighted

Not sure what changed, but they updated it yesterday:

I'll believe it when I see it :)

 

Highlighted
Hey Dave, any update on the rollout progress? We have a recent surge in interest in a task management platform and Planner fits the bill in all areas except availability.
Highlighted

I don't think Dave is the PM anymore. My contact is saying they are missing May, but hoping for June. Honestly, who knows though.

Highlighted
Well, that's a little disappointing, but I guess all we can do is wait. I have the license, so now I guess we just check on the daily. Thanks!
Highlighted

Technically, they have another 8 days still. 

 

Let's do over/under.

 

Who believe they will have it released before June 2018?

 

Who believes it will be done after June 2018?

Highlighted

Wow, what a teaser. They had May 2018, and now they have changed it to Q4 CY2018. See below:

 

Microsoft Planner for GCC

THE ESTIMATED DATE IS Q3 2018. The roadmap is currently displaying an incorrect date, we’re working on fixing this. Microsoft Planner helps users efficiently organize their teamwork. Teams can create new plans, organize and assign tasks, set due dates and update status. Planner also offers the ability to attach documents to specific tasks, edit them together and have conversations around tasks.

I see. Mistakes happen. But I’m going to move on to buying another product. The cost of the other product will be added to our cost analysis for O365 whwn it comes up for rebid in a few months.
Highlighted
Paul,

I think I will consider alternate products as well at this point. Sigh...

Corey
Highlighted
I figured it was too good to be true. I decided when the projection changed from fall 2017, that Planner may never arrive for the government cloud.
Highlighted

Lots of websites talking about alternatives to MS Planner. Time to go hunting.

 

Curious, did you find anything? (Is that appropriate, I wonder if I'd get banned)

 

Corey

Highlighted
Yeah, I'm not jumping yet. I've waited this long and it takes time to implement.

Though, if you are looking, Trello has to be what Microsoft is trying to take on with planner.
Highlighted

Trello is exactly what MS is trying to do with Planner. They are hoping Planner will be a Trello killer. BTW - I have used Trello and know a number of other Trello users - We LOVE it.  The cost is very reasonable. 

 

The ONLY benefit to MS Planner is that it is supposed to be a part of MS Office. . . If they do get Planner finished for MS Office - GOV, we are going to have a hard time with adoption.  People don't like change and when Trello is sooooooooo good. . .

 

Let's start a betting pool.  Odds are Q42018 20% given the past missed deadlines.  Given the missed deadlines, evidence suggests they are not focused on improving the software for government clients.  They are not going to get more government clients because of Planner. The clients they have are not going to leave because Planner is not there.  There is no compelling reason for them to ever finish it for government.

Anyone understand why the "Government cloud" would be any different than the Commercial cloud as far as using this app?  I know the Government cloud resources are supposed to only "live" in the USA.

 

Any thoughts?

Highlighted

If you look at it, I imagine this is holding things up:

 

Office 365 US Government complies with certifications and accreditations that are required for US Public Sector customers.

 

The accreditation process is a slug, and often out of the hands of the business. I am guessing it's not a technical issue that's holding things.
