Microsoft Teams Planner App Updates and Renaming

Microsoft Teams Planner App Updates and Renaming 

Please note that Microsoft Teams is making upgrades to its Planner app on a rolling basis from May to mid-July. The mobile app will temporarily be renamed to Tasks by Planner and To Do until the change has completed. Planner app will be known as Tasks app thereafter.  

With the Tasks app, users will be able to see their individual tasks and team tasks in a single app. Microsoft Teams will also introduce both a list view and a new mobile tasks experience within the Teams app for mobile devices. 

Users will see personal tasks powered by To Do (which also powers Outlook tasks) and team tasks powered by Planner. Existing Planner tabs will behave the same as they do today, but will show an additional list view. Users will be able to add new Tasks tabs to the channels in teams they belong to. Users can also access the Tasks app in the same ways they previously accessed the Planner app. 

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace that facilitates real-time collaboration and allows users to host casual conversations and create work plans.
