Microsoft’s Planner and To Do Apps Now Offer Integrated View of Assigned Tasks

Microsoft's upgraded Planner app in Teams lets you see all assigned tasks from various plans, including Project for the web


has announced the general availability of an update for the recently launched new Planner app for Microsoft Teams. The latest enhancement allows users to view all tasks assigned to them across various plans in a single, consolidated page within the app. This development is particularly beneficial for users managing tasks created from the Planner Premium Plan, formerly known as Project for the web.

Streamlined Task Management

With the introduction of this update, the cumbersome process of checking each plan individually for updates is eliminated. Users can now see tasks from the Planner Premium Plan in the “Assigned to me” view on the app's My Tasks page. Furthermore, users have the capability to update the progress of these tasks and mark them as complete directly from this view. For more detailed , including editing of remaining fields, users can simply click “Go to premium plan” within the task details view to access full task management capabilities.

Future Enhancements and Continued Support

The rollout of this new feature has commenced and is expected to be available to all Planner and To Do app users in the forthcoming weeks. In addition to this update, Microsoft has disclosed plans for further enhancements to the Planner app, underscoring its commitment to continuous improvement of its task management tools. Despite these advancements, Microsoft has confirmed it will not phase out the older versions of the Planner or To Do apps. However, an update to integrate the new Planner app features with Planner on the web is anticipated, further streamlining the user experience across Microsoft's task management ecosystem.

The new Planner app tackles project sprawl by bringing all your plans together in one place. No more hopping between apps! Plus, the “My Tasks” view acts as your central hub, showing all your assigned tasks and letting you filter and search them for a breeze through your workload.
