How and when to use Microsoft Project, and how and when to use Microsoft Planner? If you are a Microsoft 365 user with a license to access Microsoft Project Online, then you should ask yourself why and when to use Microsoft Project Online or Microsoft Planner.
These two apps, even if they are intended to plan a project and the related tasks, do not have the same relevance and do not work in the same way.
Microsoft Project Online allows you to create a project schedule, update it, associate human and material resources with the associated costs and finally, automate and adapt planning shifts. In short, it is designed for large-scale projects that you wish to follow very precisely and at all levels. Microsoft Project Online integrates fully with SharePoint.
Microsoft Planner is a real alternative to Project Online because it also allows you to organize and share tasks across ad hoc teams. The advantage is that it is simple to handle and intuitive, it does not require any particular skills in project management and allows you to federate tasks around a project and a team. Obviously, Microsoft Planner is not as complete as Project Online and does not allow, for example, to track the costs and therefore the budget of the project. Microsoft Planner is ideal for fast, cross-functional projects. Microsoft Planner integrates with Microsoft Teams, which requires it to be an important part of how a team works in Teams. Finally, Microsoft Planner allows synchronization with Microsoft To Do for the individual organization of a coworker.
