  1. Good day, thanks for the session.

    We use Teams, Planner and Project, my question is: How can I “integrate” these tools so my team members can see their individuals tasks in a simpler way? I would like them to see their tasks in planner/teams while I work from Ms Project? (not looking at the ms project file).

    Thanks in advance

  2. Hi, it depends where you plan their tasks. Ultimately there is little/no integration between project and planner (wycresoft might have a soln), they are separate tools. Teams and Planner integrate. At the moment your best solution might be to plan tasks in planner and integrate into teams, and schedule those in project.
