Microsoft Planner/Teams Testing



  • I've been wanting to give Microsoft Planner and Teams a good test to see if it will work for our environment. Have already run into a few issues.

    I was wondering...

    1. Is anyone else using these products?

    2. For things that seem like issues, are they also issues in similar products, such as Trello and Asana (if anyone uses them).



  • QUESTION 1:

    Apparently in Planner there is no way to recover deleted tasks, buckets, etc.. But from Googling, this also appears to be the case in Asana and Trello.

    Anyone able to speak on that?



  • I just started using planner and trying to test out teams as well.

    Planner is mostly like trello, but i am already finding it difficult for the following:

    1. Generate a team report on the progress. I can see a graphical dashboard saying the progress, but if i need to get an overall view to get a picture of our tasks, its not that easy or not available

    2. export tasks is not available

    3. When you complete the tasks, and if as a team, need to review whats completed and plan tasks accordingly, its not that easy, you just see a list of tasks checked out but couldn't find an easy way to check when the task was completed.

    I am still looking for a good IT project management tool to get all our internal projects tracked and split tasks between our internal team

    Teams on the other hand, is much better that SFB for voice & video calls. Has some good features and we are slowly liking it but the adoption rate within my team is not that great yet. Most of them are overwhelmed with the options in teams.

    Are you concerned with backup and things like that?

    You mean across all tasks across all plans?

    Didn't get the question about backup

    The dashboard shows tasks of one plan
