  2. Templates for Planner

    Would be good if we could have predefined templates for planner that we can then use for repetitive tasks eg onboarding a new starter.

    This is a feature we had in Asana and have lost since moving to teams

  4. I would like to continue to see completed tasks on the schedule but have them either stuck through our maybe grey in color.

    I would like to continue to see completed tasks on the schedule but have them either struck through our maybe grey in color. In addition, have completed tasks show up on the charts page so that each team member displays the total number of tasks completed, in progress, and late.

  5. planner icons

    Currently the icons in Planner tabs do not use the associated Skype for Business pictures and instead show the generic system initials. It would be ideal for this to scrape the same data that Teams is using to pull in the Skype picture as it becomes tedious to hover over each icon with the same initials to figure out who is assigned a specific task. I do not see an existing ask for this when searching here for planner.

    3. Fullscreen dosen't work - see attachment.

  10. Planner: Allow chats on tasks in planner

    Working on a planner task in Teams, I can post a comment. This comment is then sent by E-Mail to all team members and the Team's mailbox. No chat allowed on Tasks - only on the Channel. This is very much different to the logic applied in other channels in Teams.

  11. Default chennel filter for shared Teams planner

    Planner integration with teh ability to discuss it in Teams is a great idea.

    But it's frustrating that one needs to create as much planner as Channel if one don't want to mix task up.

    It would make sens to have one master planner for a Team, so we can follow the overall work, and being able to set default filter in channel so as to foxus on task linked to the channel.
    > it could easilty be a default filtering set in each channel
    > or the ability to link a task to specific channelS.

    up to you!

  13. Can MS Planner be used track project hours…

    So I’m a 365 user now, deep in Teams and have questions, one specifically in mind to ask.

    Can MS Planner be used track project hours. I’m looking for a way to get information on assigned + completed tasks to help me compare a projects estimated cost against actual time spent.

  14. Reporting by task owner

    Should be able to filter (by assigned to) and export reports to email showing unfished tasks. Often a PM needs to report to leadership who owes what deliverable. Especially when requesting assistance in driving responsiveness. I need to send emails to people NOT using Microsoft Teams and that should NOT be in the team. Just status to leadership showing what their direct reports owe to the project.

  16. Create Planner Task directly from Conversation Item

    Many times while working with my Team in conversations, we create actionable items from our work together. It would be AMAZING if there was a small icon in the top right corner (next to the saved icon and the thumbs up perhaps) that would allow me to turn that conversation line directly into a planner task, linking the two together! Think about how much more productive we could be, plus, we cut down the step of having to copy and paste into planner itself.

  17. Need to create a task from a conversation with right-click

    There is a Planner tab in Microsoft Teams to make a task, but it would be better to have a feature that can create a task with right-click on the conversation to improve work efficiency. So, please implement this feature.

  18. Remind employee of existing task from Planner in Teams

    It would be great if an Admin of a Team can remind users of a task. For example, if I am a manager, I might want to remind an employee of a task, so I should be able to select a button that will let me remind the user, and/or update them if I make any changes to the task.

    This would be truly effective in order to ensure you can remind/update employees if necessary.
