Microsoft Planner integrations with Microsoft Loop

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Community Hub.

In case you missed it, at Microsoft Ignite 2023, we announced the new Microsoft Planner, bringing together to-dos, tasks, plans and projects into a single unified experience.* The new Planner enables you to stay in the flow of work with integrations across other Microsoft 365 experiences such as Microsoft Loop, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Viva Goals, and Microsoft Teams.  In this blog we are excited to dive deeper into the different ways Microsoft Planner integrates with Loop, helping teams collaborate over tasks in the flow of work, while staying in sync and on track across your tasks in Microsoft 365.  


Task list  

Tasks get generated across multiple apps in the flow of work- while triaging your Microsoft Outlook emails, in collaborative Teams meetings or while working with your team within Loop. The Task list in Loop is one of the integrations where you and your team can quickly capture tasks in the flow of where you’re getting work done. For example, you can add a Task list Loop component to a Teams chat or channels, an Outlook email or the Loop app. You can also use it in the Teams built-in meeting notes. These task lists get synced as a plan in Planner, where you can track, schedule and manage them using the power of Planner. And as the tasks are updated, they stay in sync across the Task list component and the Planner applications.


Planner component 

What if you already have a plan, and you’d like to bring it into the context of Loop? That’s where the Planner component comes in. When using Planner plans as a Loop component, you can take advantage of all the Planner capabilities in the context of the Loop page. You can visualize and manage the teams work in a board view, tag the work with labels, break the tasks down further with checklists, manage priorities and more. We have wrapped up Planner plans and enabled them to be embedded in Loop so that you and your team can access them contextually, while collaborating using the rich feature sets of Loop that you know and love.  Check out the YouTube video below to see all of this in action and leave us your feedback. 



Pretty cool, right? We can’t wait for you to start using Loop with Planner!  Tell us what you think here.
