Microsoft Teams Monday: How To Integrate Microsoft Planner
We at Paessler started using MS Teams a few months ago and we've learned a lot since we started. Every Monday, we pass on a few tips, tricks, and information about useful features we've learned. Today: Learn how to integrate Microsoft Planner.
What is Planner?
Planneris a lightweight project management tool. You can assign tasks, update them and mark them as finished. It also supports deadlines, checklists, attachments and comments.
As some teams are using planner, we thought it might be a good idea to show you that there is a built-in option to work with your existing plans in Microsoft Teams.
1) Visit your channel and click on the "+" on your tabs.
2) Click "Planner".
3) Create a new plan or Use an existing plan.
Please note: Setting up a new plan in teams does not allow you to manage that plan on the planner website(yet). I'd highly recommend that you create a new plan on the website first!
4) Click on the newly created "Planner" tab and log in if prompted.
5) Once you've added your plan to MS Teams you can do (almost) everything, which you can also do on the website, including: creating new tasks, adding comments, editing existing tasks, and marking them as finished...
