SharePoint introduces new Microsoft Planner integration

Laurent Giret

Microsoft Planner, the company’s task management app for Office 365 is getting a new integration with SharePoint sites today. Just like Microsoft Teams users can add a Planner tab to have all their tasks all in one place, Microsoft is now allowing SharePoint users to embed Planner plans into SharePoint sites.

In a blog post, Microsoft detailed two different Planner capabilities in SharePoint: the first one is the ability to add a Planner plan to the left navigation pane of any SharePoint site for easy access. To go even further, the new Planner web part makes it possible to add plan information like the Planner Board or Charts view of a Planner plan right on the homepage of your SharePoint Site. You can see how it looks in the image below:

These two new Planner capabilities are available today for all SharePoint users. Microsoft recently integrated its Planner app with the Outlook calendar, and we’re looking forward to seeing where Microsoft will bring it next.
