Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Planner

The majority of our services use Microsoft Planner to manage their work efficiently. Its integration with Microsoft Suite and other products such as Microsoft teams/office365 makes it easier for you and your team to manage tasks.

We used it to view the project process and the assignments assigned to each team member. It also provides useful information about the progress of the project or if we don't meet our timelines.

It also helps you to create different team/groups for a common project and helps leads to manage multiple projects at one place with multiple groups
  • It helps you to create a proper project plan and multiple tasks
  • Integration with other Microsoft products
  • Easy task Management and progress tracking
  • Integration with other suites like Google/Gmail
  • User Interface
  • Tasks can be managed effectively
  • Integration with Microsoft suite - Office/ teams
  • Mobile app availability to manage things
  • Easy file sharing
  • It definitely have a positive impact in terms of ROI. as it is a part of Microsoft Suite so no need to put extra for its integration with teams or office
  • It also allows communication/chatting between team on any task and things can be clear on the spot in a timely manner
Have moved to Jira in my recent project. I can say Microsoft plan is a good option but Jira is more powerful compare to this tool. The only thing is its integration and easy communication feature between teams or assigned groups stand it out while comparing with the similar products. Also, it is easy to manage multiple projects and get status immediately while you are in any call and need something to present immediately because everything is in one place

Microsoft Planner is a well-suited tool if you want it to be integrated with other Microsoft tools. It helps you to manage multiple projects with multiple different teams to manage their tasks and see the overall project status at a place. It also helps teams to share files in the respective group and everyone in the group will be notified of any newly added tasks.

However, If it is required to follow agile effectively with proper story points then would recommend going with more powerful tools like Jira to manage things in a more effective manner and (Jira cloud) have integration available now with team also which is a great add-on
