Share plans with external people/customers
Please let us share plans with external people. Or at least tell us how to do this! For example, if you work in a project with a customer, they may want insight in your work.
Guest access is live in Planner! To learn more, visit: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Bring-your-plans-to-life-with-guests-in-Planner/ba-p/190704
We have two more parts of this feature to deliver:
1) Comments enabled for guests to see and use
2) The ability to invite a guest from within Planner
Thank you again for your patience and feedback on this!

YES please and add 3) Ability to share Plan with external user (not a guest user of the team). Would be so useful to be able to share just the plan in the same way that OneDrive and shrepoint allowing sharing of files without making the external user a full guest.
Agree with Amanda Swisher - Need to be able to limit access to read-only, when desired.
Please allow for guests to use planner. It would make my life so much easier as a small business owner
Amanda Swisher commented
Allow read only or edit access like you do for pptx and excel. Would be helpful to be able to share across org and not only a specific team.
Could this improvement be merged with syncing tasks across multiple planners? A separate Planner for external and/or other internal teams for which you can share and sync specific tasks or the entire plan.
IT Admin commented
Would be best if they can only access the planner plan and not the teams team also...
To add to this - I need to spoon feed the guests and using a URL for them to access is far too much of a mission for them use. They need quick and easy access via a smart device, ideally the planner app
I agree - this is precisely what I'm looking for.
I have guests who cant access the planner app to collaborate.
They have to access the plan via URL.
Extremely impractical and a deal breaker
Also need to allow guest access in Planner mobile apps otherwise this functionality is pretty useless
Hello Planner Team, any Updates on this? Pls provide some more information. Thx
please make sure that External People / Guest are able to see the comments in the tasks and are able to add comments
External Guest are not able to add comments, this is basic !! Please deliver it !
Joakim Wasseng commented
This is done right? Consultants (guests) can now comment on the plans that we share with them.
As long as guests can comment on tasks, otherwise pretty much a non-starter.
please make sure that External People / Guest are able to see the comments in the tasks and are able to add comments.Them just seeing the task but not seeing any of the updates is useless
does that mean this will never be completed ? (five months later)
Siddhartha Mankad commented
In creating external access, could you please ensure that security is appropriately configurable - as it may not be appropriate to show / share all tasks or plan elements with all users.
That would be a very important topic
Planner Team - is there an update on this feature? Sharing the plan as a minimal step will provide a great value add for client engagements. Additionally - any way we can export the schedule out to a friendly view to share with externals??
