Microsoft Planner is an application available on the Microsoft Office 365 platform. Planner enables users and teams to create plans, assemble and assign tasks, share files, communicate and collaborate with other users, and receive progress updates via various means on the Office 365 platform. Each new plan created in Planner automatically creates a new Office 365 group.

Planner will fill Microsoft customers’ need for a more lightweight, easy-to-use tool.  It does not require the learning curve needed for Microsoft Project.  It is also a replacement for SharePoint Tasks.

Planner is integrated into Office 365 Groups, which means that the conversations in Planner are also available in Outlook 2016, Outlook on the web, and the Outlook Groups Mobile Apps.

Planner is integrated with OneNote as well.  Every plan has a OneNote Notebook created for it.

The software is also tightly integrated with the Office suite. Users can attach Word, Excel and PowerPoint files to a Card. These documents are then stored in SharePoint Online document library, which makes it available offline, too!
