How to use Planner?
When I login to my office 365 tenant it will be listed on my apps if I have the proper assigned license also I go go directly through this link https://tasks.office.com
As we see in the screenshot above it is a complete dashboard for all plans I have and statistics of tasks (not started, In progress, Late, Completed) and on the left I see navigation where I can create new plan, check my tasks or navigate through all plans
When I press on one of the plans like Customers Planning I will get the following screenshot.
I see the tasks in this plan and who is assigned to it and status, I can create new task, I can add members.
So really Planner is very powerful tools for managing teams tasks and tracking, it can be used i agile and scrum methodologies.
