My experience with Microsoft Planner

It has gone quite well for us, we managed to reduce costs by purchasing everything from a single provider (Microsoft). Previously we used Google apps for mail, repository and Zoho for projects and tasks, but now we have mail, planner, office software in a single dashboard.

Pros

It is a tool that comes included with the licensing that we already pay for along with Office 365 and Exchange.
It is very easy to add new users, which we link to our corporate Microsoft account.
It helps us reduce user administration and licensing since all those who require this service and others from Microsoft are managed on the same platform.

Cons

They are not dynamic like other tools we have used in the past.
Obtaining gantt or flow charts is not something that simple.
Although it helps the entire organization in general, users who manage projects still use project software especially when we have to follow up with third parties.

Basic task management tool

Pros

The service is easily available as it's part of Office 365 subscriptions. It integrates fairly well with other Microsoft services and does fulfill the basic task management needs.

Cons

Frequent issues with lost updates and such, especially on other browsers than Microsoft Edge. No support for tagging certain users (in comments or such). Poor support for workflows (tasks can be assigned to multiple people at a time, with no other means of ensuring that other people get updates, so it's hard to determine who should act on a certain task at a certain time).

Planner user review

In general, I have used the planner weekly. However, at the beginning, it was a bit difficult to understand, but now it is very simple for me and helps me assign tasks without forgetting to follow up.

Pros

I love being able to set the priority level of a task, and especially being able to customize the target dates to suit the user's preferences.

Cons

I would seek to improve the way tasks are modified; it can be somewhat complicated if it's your first time working with it.
