Backup Microsoft Planner

Post by PKaufmann » Nov 07, 2018 8:06 pm

Hi,

For Test Cases I have created a new Project Plan in MS Planner in O365...
I added some tasks, comments, etc ..

Then I did a backup of it. In the backend it is a sharepoint site so it was easy to find and the backup was successful.
Afterwards I deleted the Plan from O365 and restored it with veeam..

Good: The Plan is back in the MS Planner overview
Bad: No Tasks or comments are in it, it's just blank..


did anyone else made this experience?
Is this a known bug/issue/limitation of O365?

thanks for help,
regards,
Philipp

Hi Philipp,

This is an expected behavior, as VBO doesn't support MS Planner API yet.

Hi Phillip,

2 days ago I had a meeting with MSFT around this. I explained them the situation (you are not the first one that asks about this). They (MSFT planner team) have no plans at this moment but promised me to think about it and see what they could do. I will keep following-up but I am afraid it will take some time

Hi Mike,
thanks for your answer.

Since we are doing almost all project plans with MS Planner, this would be a nice feature :)
There is no archive function for planner in O365, so we have to deal with lots of them.

Hi Mike,

Just wondering if there has been any progress on Microsoft's end regarding planner backups? We are starting to do more with planner so the need for backups is increasing.

No progress at this moment I'm afraid.

I would also be interested in backup for Planner.

In the mean time Microsoft now has an "Export plan to Excel" option if you click the three dots near the middle of the Plan screen, although it looks like task comments and attachments are not included in the export. This way you can at least get a copy of the task list out of the cloud.

Hi Andrew,

Attachments to Planner tasks are stored within SPO and thus can be easily backed up and restored (or exported) with VBO.

Sorry but I cannot find the "Export plan to Excel" options...? :?:

If it helps, a colleague recently scripted a full export and import of every plan, bucket, and task. (We had the unenviable task of migrating the entire company from one MS tenant to another.)
The script is available on GitHub: https://github.com/smbm/PlannerMigration-GraphAPI
The export functions of the script might be a useful starting point to create your own backup script, until the O365 backup product can do it.
