If you’ve been following news for Microsoft Planner on the commercial side, you likely saw our big announcement last week that we’re starting to rollout Tasks in Teams. As with most commercial releases, Tasks in Teams will be available for government cloud offerings at a later date. Keep an eye on your Office Message Center inbox for updates.
But Tasks in Teams wasn’t the only Planner news of note. Last month, we made Copy plan available for all government plans across GCC, GCC High, and DoD. Copy plan is exactly what it sounds like: the feature lets you copy an existing plan and its task card elements—these include attachments, priority, dates, description, checklist, and labels—into a new or current group (Microsoft 365 Groups) or team (Microsoft Teams). This means you no longer need to manually recreate plans for repeated processes, like requests for proposals or recurring budgeting projects.
Please check visit our support page for a complete list of Planner features coming to the government cloud. If you’d like to keep up with all things Planner, our Tech Community page is the perfect place for learning about the latest announcements. You can also leave us suggestions for improving your Planner experience on UserVoice. And if you’re new to Planner, our support page will help get you started.
