Planner

​How It Works for You

The simplest explanation is that Planner is a way to organize tasks, teamwork, and projects.  Office 365 Planner provides a hub for team members to create plans, organize and assign tasks to different users and to check updates on progress through dashboards. It also provides a centralized place where files can be shared and gives visibility to the whole team.  You can keep your project private so only those involved in the project will have access to it.

Open Office 365 and click on the Planner tile which will take you to that user interface, and from here, you can simply start a new project. Each plan utilizes the concept of “Boards” to keep work organized.  Within each Board are individual Cards that have their own due dates, attachments, categories and conversations. These Cards can have documents or photos attached to make it easier to see – at a glance – what that Card is about, and the cards can be organized into columns called “Buckets” which can also be color-coded and prioritized.
