Companies collect and process large amounts of data across project management systems like Microsoft Planner. Because project managers use that data to make informed decisions to reach company objectives and achieve success, these data must always be available and protected. Organizations need to have a reliable backup and restore Microsoft 365 Planner strategy.

The Problem with Recovering Microsoft Planner Plans

Microsoft Planner is a great unifying tool that enables project teams to create and deploy new plans and tasks, collaborate, and receive progress updates. However, MS Planner isn’t flawless. For example, there is no clear-cut Microsoft Planner backup and restore functionality. This means that if you delete a plan by mistake, you may never be able to recover it. The inability to recover missing, damaged, or corrupted data caused by human error seriously threatens business operations. Other adverse outcomes project managers may encounter while using Office 365 Planner include the following: 

  • Complete loss of data. The inability to recover missing or damaged data can disrupt business operations. 
  • Loss of productivity. The loss of critical organizational data makes it difficult or impossible to carry out team objectives and complete tasks. IT administrators need such crucial data to assist project teams in achieving their set goals. 
  • Poor ROI. When sensitive data goes missing, projects get stalled. Deadlines are missed, thus leading to the loss of clients, profits, and a bad reputation for the company. 

These challenges have prompted the need to develop a reliable way to restore Microsoft Planner data. However, the question of which backup and restore plan to use in Planner remains unanswered.
