There are many project management options available in Microsoft365. In this post I’ll help you understand appropriate use of each, and how to use our products to extract the maximum value from those services.
Maybe you are a user of Microsoft Planner, Microsoft ToDo, or Microsoft Lists for managing your tasks and projects? Perhaps you’re already paying for Project for the Web? Let’s have a look at a direct comparison:
You’re going to be using Planner, ToDo and Lists within your organization already.
They’re flexible and powerful. Our mission is to extract the very best from those tools.
For Planner and Lists, we supply market-leading Gantt chart products:
We have two really popular products for this purpose - both Gantt chart components for SharePoint and Teams. You can add them to a SharePoint page, or a Teams tab, and share the SharePoint List or set of Planner Plans with an audience of your choosing.
💲 There’s no per-user pricing component to these apps, so one flat fee allows you unlimited usage within your organization.
Extend the functionality of your existing M365 project management products - and let your users maximise use of the apps they already know.
This is a SharePoint web part. Embed it into a SharePoint page and share it with your team! It respects Planner security, so everything “just works”:

Again this is a SharePoint web part, so simply publish a web page and share it with your team. This is our most advanced web part with a plethora of features - you can really customize it to fit your exact business needs. We don’t believe any project management app is this flexible. Watch this video for an idea of what it can do;

The core of Microsoft Lists is custom properties, and our gantt chart is no different - you can really maximise how it fits with your business by extending it with custom fields, filters and task tooltips.
No other project management product is both as simple to use, yet also as powerful and configurable.
If you update a task in the Gantt chart, it’ll save it back to Lists or Planner. You can do things like custom grouping, ordering, color schemes, and so on - and we’re always adding extra features in response to customer needs. Our customers span industries including healthcare, property, manufacturing, and IT and this is a testament to its flexibility.
There’s no per-user pricing component to these app, so one flat fee allows you unlimited usage within your organization.
Use of any other product management system requires a per-user licensing fee which can quickly become a barrier to deployment throughout the entire organization.
