What is Office 365 Planner?

The simplest explanation is that it’s a way to organise teamwork. Office 365 Planner provides a hub for team members to create plans, organise and assign tasks to different users and to check updates on progress through dashboards. It also provides a centralised place where files can be shared and gives visibility to the whole team.

Planner and Groups

Office 365 Planner ties in very closely to Office 365 Groups. Every time a new plan is created then a new Office 365 Group is automatically created and vice versa. If you have a pre-existing Group then a plan will automatically be created for this Group. For more information about Office 365 Groups, click here.
