  1. Include a Favorites view within Planner/Tasks app

    The combined Planner/To-Do app is cumbersome to jump to the most needed/used plans. Would like to see a section for the Plans marked as Favorite like the full Planner web view provides.

  2. Watcher on Task

    Add “keep informed” functionality to task item. This is to allow for individuals to be added to a task for information purposes only. The separate list will ensure that there is no confusion as to who is assigned to resolve the task, and who is merely wanting to be kept informed. Currently only assignees and individual who logged task are informed when comments are made on the task.

  4. Use Planner App to Assign Tasks without a Specific Team

    It is very restrictive that Planner can only be used to create tasks within specific Teams.
    It would be great to be able to create a plan from your own planner app and assign tasks to individuals, not having to have a specific team or channel associated to it.
    Planner should be able to be used both within Specific Teams, but also as a Standalone to assign tasks to anyone in the business.

  6. New Tasks in Teams need improvement!

    The new "Tasks in Teams" needs to also have planner tasks and flagged email in a common taks/personal list. If not, then what is the purpose of this feature?

  8. Add "Create task" action for posts in Microsoft Teams

    Add a "create task" action for posts in Microsoft Teams. For a post, when you click on the ellipsis and "More actions", the Planner "create task" action opens a card with the content of the post as the task description. The card lets you add a few other details for the task and if you save, would reply to the post with a link to the task just created.

    The card should be kept simple. Focus is on quickly capture the content of a post into a task and make it visible that a task has been created. The details…

  9. Assignments due

    There should be a complete list of all your assignments in chronological order of due dates instead of all your assignments in each subject. It takes 5-10 seconds (depending on how slow your wifi/data is) to switch between subjects which can be a bit annoying at times. I would like to see all of my assignments for all of my subjects together.

  10. It would be great to have charts linked to LABELS from Board Tasks

    Hi, would love to be able to display charts sorted by LABELS created from Board tasks. It will help streamline our reporting as a one stop shop from Planner! Please.

  13. Add the ability to tag people in comments on Tasks in planner. Also add the ability to tag people on subtasks in planner.

    Add the ability to tag people in comments on Tasks in planner. Also add the ability to tag people on subtasks in planner. Right now it's only possible to tag people on the main task, but when we add subtasks we can't.

  15. Slider to adjust the size of the overview - view more tasks on one page (unleash the potential)

    Summary:
    The maximum is reached with 10 tasks per bucket at a zoom-level of 100%. Not enough to manage business projects...

    Why:
    Complex projects of today cannot be managed with this small amount of tasks. However, there is a huge need for clever project management tools such as Planner.

    How:
    The easy handling of Planner should be continued. Therefore the solution should be a simple slider or a few view settings (e.g. standard, max x tasks, all tasks on one page).

    What:
    With this solution it is easy to see which project member has too many tasks.
    The challenge is…

  16. 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.

  17. Extend Planner keyboard shortcuts

    This idea is supposed to merge all existing ones (related to one or the other keyboard shortcut for Planner).

    Motivation: The existing shortcuts are related to board navigation or moving a task from a bucket to the other. In order to work efficiently with Planner tasks, we need shortcuts for (must-have):
    -adding a task
    -assigning a task to a team member
    -assigning a task to our self
    -assigning a start/end date
    -modifying the progress/priority
    -assigning a label

    Also nice to have would be:
    -add checklist
    -add hyperlink
    -add notes
    -add comment

    These shortcuts should not represent a high implementation effort,…

  18. Planner Notifications and Watching Feature

    Beyond assigning a task to an individual, allow multiple people to enable notifications for a specific task so they can receive updates in teams or email for progress of that task. Currently the only way you can enable notifications is for tasks you are tagged in. I would like the ability to "watch" a task that someone else is assigned.

  19. Assign an indivudal (and a due date) to check list items on a Planner Task

    I would like to suggest that when you add a "check list" item to a planner task, you can assign that check list item to an individual and assign a suggested completion date.

  20. archive plan

    Can Plan have an Archive Plan option please?
    Deleting it is not always an option, and not deleting it is not a convenient solution when you have dozens of plans within 1 group.
