Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.
Microsoft Planner is an Office 365 service that lets you create boards and add your team's tasks and assignments. On your Planner board you can sort your tasks into columns (or buckets). Buckets can indicate stages of development, days of the week, sprints, and more. You can move tasks around your board just by dragging and dropping them, so if you complete a task or just want to prioritize and shuffle things around, you can do that easily. Planner boards are helpful for communication, too, since they indicate where you and the rest of your team are with respect to completing tasks. Additionally, you can switch to charts view to display your team's progress. To find out more about creating plans, building teams, assigning tasks, updating status visually, and more, see Microsoft Planner help.
With the Planner web part, you can show board or charts and work with your plan right on your SharePoint page.
