Hi All,
Microsoft rolled out the most awaited feature in Microsoft Planner. That's Guest access in Plan. Using this feature, guest users can access the planner web portal with minimal permission. This blog will answer you

  • How to add guests to a plan?
  • How to connect Planner web portal as a Guest?

  • Adding guests to a Group will automatically include that guest in its respective tenant. If Guest users are available in tenant, they can be added to any plan (even if the plan belongs to different O365 group) directly from Planner portal.

    Note If guest user doesn’t have a valid Microsoft account, the portal will prompt the guest to create Microsoft account in  few simple self explonatory steps

    After login into planner web portal, Guests can view all plans with limited permissions in the O365 Group (Please note that an O365 Group can hold multiple plans) in which they are member of.
