Microsoft’s Planner is a project management web app that allows users to create project plans, form groups and assign tasks to members of that group. Groups can organize, assign and collaborate on tasks; set due dates; update statuses and share files. Visual dashboards and email notifications keep everyone in the group informed on progress.
Planner is free to UGA students, faculty and staff and is accessible through your web-based UGAMail. The icon is located in the Office 365 menu in the left hand corner of your screen when you log in to your web-based UGAMail.
With Planner, users can:
- Create a plan
- Form a group
- Assign tasks and sort tasks
- Set deadlines for tasks
- Attach files, photos and links to a project
- Share and collaborate on files for the plan in OneDrive
- View progress on a plan
Microsoft offers troubleshooting documentation on its website.
