In Planner, each task on the Board can have a preview, offering a quick way to identify the task and get to work. For example, you could use an Office file, PDF, photo, link, checklist, or even simple description text.
Add a preview
To add a task preview, simply attach a file, photo, or link to the task, or add a checklist. The first time you attach something to a task or create a checklist, that attachment or list becomes the preview.
Change the preview
If you would rather use a different attachment or list as the preview, or if you'd like to use the description text as the preview, select the task to bring up its details.
To use a different attachment as the preview, select the three dots at the corner of the attachment, and then choose Set as preview.
To use a checklist as the preview, select the Set as preview check box under Checklist.
To use the task description text as the preview,, select the Set as preview check box next to the description.
Remove the preview
If you want the task to appear on the Board without a preview, select the task to bring up its details.
If the preview is an attachment, select the three dots at the corner of the preview, and then choose Remove as preview.
If the preview is description text or a checklist, clear the Set as preview check box.
Use the preview as a launcher
If you use an Office file as a preview, you can select the launcher at the corner of the preview to open it in Office Online.
