    Say the boss says "Let's have a meeting to plan the schedule"

    You say "We already planned the schedule." "Already" adds emphasis to the completed action.



    "We had planned the schedule" is an unfinished thought.

    Either "we planned the schedule" to indicate a finished past action.

    Or "We had planned the schedule, but then the fire caused a disruption in our plans."
