With Microsoft Planner, you can have several plans, but all of them have a similar blank logo with the initials of the plan. This makes it difficult to distinguish the plans at a glance. Learn how to change the logo to something more unique.
You may think it would be easy and simple to change the logo on a plan, but you’re wrong.
Microsoft 365/Office 365 (M365/O365) offers the ability to create an “M365/O365 Group” that provides, among other things, a shared mailbox and calendar, file storage, and a scheduling plan.
It works the other way around when you create a new schedule – an M365/O365 group is created in the background. It is the logo of this O365 group that you need to change if you want to change the logo of your plan.
What is the Microsoft Planner
With Microsoft Planner, you can create a plan, form a team, assign tasks and update status – all in a few simple steps. Microsoft Planner is available to most people with a Microsoft 365 Work or School subscription; Microsoft 365 Personal (for example: [email protected] or [email protected]) or government subscriptions are not included.
Change the Group Icon in Microsoft Planner
A plan in the planner is actually a group, so you can change the group logo, and after a while the plan symbol is updated. Please note the following steps based on my test :
- Open the plan > click on the ellipses > select members
- Click About > Edit > click the Cemara icon > upload a photo > OK
That’s all there is to it. The logo change may take some time, as it is stored in your browser’s cache. If it hasn’t changed in a few minutes, try closing and restarting your browser or opening a new private browser window.
