    Hi @David Vinagre,

    SharePoint 2016 Server can be used as a tool for task planning within a collaborative environment. SharePoint provides features for managing tasks, assigning tasks to users, and tracking progress. SharePoint also integrates with other such as Teams, Exchange and OneDrive to provide a rich collaboration environment. To effectively utilize SharePoint 2016 Server as a tool for task planning within a collaborative environment, you should consider the following:

    1. Create a SharePoint site for task planning: You can create a SharePoint site specifically for task planning. This site can include lists for tasks, calendars for deadlines, and other relevant information.
    2. Use SharePoint lists for task management: SharePoint lists can be used to manage tasks. You can create a list for tasks, assign tasks to users, and track progress. SharePoint lists also provide features for filtering, sorting, and grouping tasks. Reference: Create and manage a project task list.
    3. Use SharePoint workflows: SharePoint workflows can be used to automate task management processes. You can create a workflow to assign tasks to users, send notifications, and track progress.
    4. Consider using third-party tools: There are several third-party tools available that provide additional features for task planning in SharePoint. These tools can provide features such as Gantt charts, resource management, and reporting.

    Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.
