Office 365 Planner Limitations

I am using Office 365 Planner to manage company projects, and I have a few questions regarding its limitations.

1) How many people can I add to each plan at maximum?

2) What is the maximum # of plans that I can create in the Planner?

3) Is there a limitation of the # of buckets/tasks in each plan?

Thank you!

Hi Amy,


Please find the answers below:

  1. You can add more than 1000 people to each plan. But users might notice delays when accessing the contents in large plans.
  2. Up to 500K. Each plan will create with an Office 365 group. The default maximum number of groups that an Office 365 organization can have is currently 500,000.
  3. There is no specific limitation on this. But the maximum number of tasks that can be assigned to one user is 250.
