  1. Restrict Team members to create or delete tasks in Planner

    We would like to use Planner in the Management Team and allocate tasks to our workforce. Currently every team member can create and delete tasks. That should be restricted.

  2. Planner - Set default to "Due Date", not "Progress"

    I would love it if you could set Planner's sorting to default to "Due Date" and not "Progress".

    I never use the progress feature because it's pretty much useless for what we're doing, so I'm constantly having to change the sort to be relevant to me.

    I feel like this could be an account setting with very little effort.

  3. Task Gantt chart

    In the graphs tab please add a (gantt) chart timeline view of tasks that shows when they were added, started and completed. This could be organised by bucket, label, person, etc. It will enable us to see tasks that have been outstanding for a long time and also average time to complete tasks.

  4. Task Drag and Drop

    There should be functionality to drag and drop a task between buckets, people etc to move them if required. For example if a task needs to be transferred from one person to another you can organise by people and just move a task sitting in one column into another

  5. When assigning a task to multiple people make it so that the task has to be completed by each individual assignee.

    Currently if one of the multiple assignees completes the task, the entire task is completed and no longer shows as a task for the others. This defeats the purpose of this app. Creating a separate task, which is the same task, and assigning to each team member is very wasteful, painful, and will prevent your users from using your product. It's unacceptable.

  6. Increase checklist items in Planner to more than 20

    Need to make checklists longer than 20 items, this is very limiting.

  7. Copy an existing Planner to another tab

    As for nom in Planner online users can copy an existing planner, but this functionnality is not available in Teams, I can "only" copy a task from one planner to another but can copy an entire planner to a new tab.

  8. Create a task for your To-Do or Planner from a chat/conversation in Teams

    I would like to have the option to create a task for my To-Do from a chat or conversation in Teams. This way if I get an assignment trough Teams I can do an easy follow up. The same for a task in Planner.
    Now I have to make the task manually while chatting with a colleague, or they will still send me an email so I can flag it.

  9. Bucket template in Planner

    I would love to have the ability to create a bucket template in the Planner feature. My team has a lot of the same task lists for our assignments and having something that creates our to-do list easier would be really beneficial.

  12. Show label colors on planner calendar

    The current planner calendar in teams does not show the task highlighted with the color of the label that it is assigned to. This only gives an all white calendar that is difficult to see items by type, priority, or if they are at risk. Example is attached.

  13. Ability to move BUCKETS in MS Team Planner

    It would be great if you can add the ability to COPY an MS Team's Planner BUCKET to a different MS Teams Planner app. The ability to copy the ENTIRE bucket of Tasks/Tiles, not just a since Task/Tile at a time.

  17. Task Dependancies with Auto Calculate Task Start and End Dates

    Link tasks to precendents with notifications when task completes, so next person can comence work on following tasks. It would also be great to be able to define how many days between start and end of each task, and due date of final task, (or any other task in the chain) so the start and end dates of all the tasks in the chain can be automatically calculated.

  19. Is there a way to unblock the Planner bot if Blocked in error?

    Cannot get the planner bot back to sending notifications in Activity Stream.

    It appears to be disable for the user completely.

  20. Email notification sent to everyone assigned to a Planner task when someone comments on that task

    If someone comments on a Planner task everyone assigned to that same task should receive an email notification advising of the comment.

    People are commenting on tasks I am assigned to and I am not aware of such comments until I go into each task and see them.
