Task management is an essential process for every manager in day-to-day activity. With increasing Microsoft Planner adoption in large enterprises, medium and small organizations, it is crucial to view portfolio timelines for Microsoft Planner plans and visualize tasks in sequences on a Gantt chart for individual Microsoft Planner plans.

Project Managers can use the Team Planner module to assign and balance resource workload for a single project or across multiple projects. Project managers can find resources to be given based on their availability, skills, and role and can be allocated in percent of the allocation, FTE, or enter hours for each team member.

PPM Express provides instant visibility into all conflicts and provides warnings if resources are overallocated. As a result, resources’ workload becomes more even and practical, with no conflicts and assignment gaps.
