  1. Assign Task to Not memeber without add them as Member

    Why assign a task to someone add that person to team? why Microsoft do no allow add task to people that are not part of the team, that person should be able to work with the task assigned to him but not add access to all the Team. It is like in Outlook you create a task and assign it to "Genaro" and automatically "Genaro" get access to all your mail to be able to work in that task.

    We need separate permission.

  2. Would be great to have standard workflows (actions) for review, comment and approval of documents

    Would be great to have standard workflows (actions) for review, comment and approval of documents. That way you can track who has reviewed, provided comments and given their approval. This could be used for shared Word, excel, ppt., etc. The owner can freeze documents once finalized.

  4. Planning across tools (GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket, Custom Issues)

    Coming from a GitHub + Slack user space, I had a look at Microsoft Teams. My first impression was a kind of chaotic user interface, which was not clear to use for me. However, I searched for the reason, why to use it and had a great idea, which obviously is not implemented.

    We have different sources for Issues like GitHub, GitLab, or even other tools. There are some capabilities of GitHub for example to implement a kanban board, but what I expected from Microsoft Teams was the integration of all this sources to any other tool like the Planner. …

  5. Increase number of Planner categories

    Right now there is a very limited number of categories that can be set for tasks. I'd love to have the ability to increase this number, as six is not nuanced enough.

  6. Individual Checklists in MS Planner

    I want several check lists (as much as I want) in MS Planner.
    And I want to name them as I want.

    At the moment there is only one fixed check list called "Checklist". That´s not enough.

  7. Add graph possibility in Planner

    In order to be able to use Planner for board meetings, we need a graph functionality like Assembla or Trello.
    Today we can only paste it in as a picture, but we would like to be able to generate graphs based on data entered directly in Teams and shown in Planner. The actions in Planner can then we used as actions to the KPI follow-up

  8. Adding stakeholders outside of a team JUST to specific projects/tasks

    I want to add people within the company (but not within my team) to specific tasks/projects for transparency, but when I add them, they also get added to the entire team, thus seeing all the projects I have. Is there a way to do what I've described? If not, it would a great addition.

  9. Possibilty for meeting participants in different locations to add a room

    If two or more People are in different Locations it would be nice if a participant could add a Meeting room for him/herself. If the Organisator is seeting somewhere else, the participants have to schedule a new event with a room instead of using the existing one.

  11. Planner tab - Enable 'Chart' and group by 'Progress' and 'Assigned'

    Planner tab - Pls enable 'Chart' and 'Progress' view

    When we open a new tab for a Planner plan, it can only show tasks by bucket.

    It was so usefull have the same experience as we do when using the Planner app on mobile or website with these views.

    Take a look my comparative picture

  12. creating tasks in planner for teams by drag and drop from outlook

    It would be great to create a Task out of an E-Mail from Outlook.
    Drag a mail and drop it into the planner tab should create a new task.

  13. Personalizing planner

    Both ideas are for planner, and seems fairly easy to add:
    Adding a way to fully edit tags available, like only having two tags on a planner, with red and blue color.
    Adding ability to set a percent on the advancement of a task, like "35%".

  14. planner tab disappeared

    I have encountered the same issue after Teams update and a MS password change.

    Since then Planner does not appear in the Windows or browser (Edge or Chrome) instances of Teams.

    I cannot add back the Planner tab either as Planner app no longer appears in the available app list either.

    I have logged out/in and rebooted but does not rectify.

    However Planner appears OK in IOS Teams app.
    Please advise any steps I can take.

  16. Email notification to assignee in planner

    We don't monitor teams (especially planner) 24/7. It'll be very helpful if assigned members got an email notification to any updates in the card. Members can choose to subscribe to any cards or even the boards (all cards by default).

  19. planner assign group

    We use the Planner as a group. We would like to add tasks to the whole group instead of one person.

    I see this working the same way as in the chat options
    "@Team name" thye whole group is assigned this task and will get a notification about it.

  20. Being able to mark tasks with Time

    At the moment you can only mark new and ongoing tasks with a date, would be preferred if we could also mark these with a specific time.
    Start date and end date is the only current markings we have, please make it able to specify time as well on these markings.
