View your plan's progress

In Planner, every plan has a board and charts.

  • The board offers a flexible way to organize your team’s work, and makes it easy for you to see who’s doing what and get details about any task.

  • The charts show how your plan is progressing, with details about what’s done, in progress, not started, and late.

Select Board or Charts at the top of the Planner window to switch between them.
