Pros

It's great for keeping tasks organized and showing the progress via Kanban and many other viewpoints. Great for assigning projects and knowing who's working on them.
Super simple to use and with a good range of functionality, Planner is a light project management tool that is an important part of the Office 365 suite.
I love that its customizable as I can assign cards and move them around as I please. The project management feature is very effective as I can set deadlines and monitor accordingly.

Pros

The out of box reports are well thought out and easy to use. And they are very invested in adoption and the standard support services and account team are excellent.
I really like using this tool and the working relationship I have with the MTM staff.
It was very knowledgeable, it is extremely well prepared.

Cons

Few features on content management: No text formatting, impossible to identify collaborators in the comment, no drag and drop for files, no preview for images.
Frequent issues with lost updates and such, especially on other browsers than Microsoft Edge.
There is a lack of way of dividing activities into steps and setting deadlines.

Cons

Sometime customers refuse to follow a survey (Post Event) in MTM. It could be difficult to persuade them.
A little difficult to use on my own rep was a star.
Menu are hard to find most especially for new users.

Microsoft Planner Effeciency

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, Using this software is still great. It simply does what it does.

Pros

Planner is a reliable software when it comes to organizing tasks with a team. Has lighter and simplier features and tools than others but super easy to use especially if you already have basic knowledge with MS softwares and integrates well with Office 365.

Cons

I'd like to say that there's room for improvements because there might be missing features that they can add that might be significant.

Easy to use for collaboration tracking

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have begun to use this as my sole project and task tracker. I like that it saves all completed tasks to show how far a project has come along. It is rewarding to see all that has been accomplished.

Pros

I like how Planner is able to be customized to the project being working on with buckets and theming. It is also nice to assign tasks to others, knowing they will get alerts. Finally, I really enjoy the calendar view once tasks are assigned dates.

Cons

There is not one thing i like least, I know there are certain features I need to explore more.

Love it for the Teams integration

Reviewed 5 months ago

We use Microsoft Office to track smaller projects, typically accessing it through Teams. It's been amazing for collaborative projects that are not overly complex.

Pros

My company is a Microsoft Office and I love how Planner is built into Teams and works great within a Microsoft environment. I like that multiple people can be assigned to a single task and that filtering options exist and that it can integrate with Power Apps.

Cons

I feel like there are some areas for improvement such as a more view options to make it more viable as a kanban tool.

Great collaboration tracking tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

Leaving aside what was mentioned in the negative aspects, the general experience has been very good, we use this type of software a lot in the company and it has behaved very well. It's a 9.8/10 for me.

Pros

It's way easy to use, you don't need any previous experience. You can do many things, such as assign tasks to others and track those tasks with dates on the calendar, it makes everything very easy!

Cons

Perhaps the only negative thing is that only team members can participate in the task, that can make it somewhat uncomfortable.

The right tool for the team that uses Microsoft 365 products

Reviewed 2 years ago

It is an easy-to-use tool, but with few features that will allow you to work collaboratively.

Pros

Its highly controlled integration with the other Microsoft 365 product modules. It is very easy to learn, with the gantt view which is customizable and filterable. The management of notifications is intelligent, they are sent grouped, not one by one. Integration with email and other tools through Power Automate.

Cons

Few features on content management: No text formatting, impossible to identify collaborators in the comment, no drag and drop for files, no preview for images.

Our tool for department organization

Reviewed a year ago

Transperency in department task organization. Huge benefit is that everyone knows what the other ones are working on which can be completely different from the views into the calendars.

Pros

Structure, functionalities, also the visuals are very appealing.

Cons

The integration between Planner and To-Do could be better. There is a connector but unfortunately there is no way to move tasks from Planner in To-Do to another category than "Assigned to me". Also if there are some E-Mails I mark as a task, they appear in To-Do but there is no way to push them into a planner so that I can assign it to other people.

I like that the system is accessible on any device. The design is straightforward to use and is moderately feature rich.

There are some core missing features. You can't see all tasks by person assigned, and you can't see all tasks assigned to a team across multiple plans. The team aspect of Planner is minimal and needs to grow. Management features need to be added.
