You can connect timeghost with lots of other services by using our connectors for Microsoft Power Automate, Zapier and IFTTT. That way you can automate important workflows and make time tracking more comfortable for you.

What is Microsoft Planner?

Microsoft Planner is a web-based tool for work management. It is an Office 365 service. This easy-to-use tool makes it possible to plan tasks and handle small projects without complex planning effort. 

Tracking times in Planner

With the Planner, task boards can be created quickly  which help you to organize small projects easily. In order to be able to assign times to the tasks in Planner and thus to have more control of your time budget, there are two quick and easy ways to connect timeghost with the Planner. 

First of all of you can set up a native Planner integration using the Feed your Feed feature which allows you to transfer certain Planner tasks right to your timeghost Feed from where you can book them on the matching project. 

Besides that you can also set up workflow automations that allow you to synch projects, tasks and buckets that are created in Planner and timeghost. For this you can use one of our connectors for Microsoft Power Automate, Zapier and IFTTT.
