  1. Add description when you add a task

    When you Add a task, you can't write description. Later you can write description, but you can't save the changes unless you update comments field. This is annoying. Enable save without having to add comments. Or else give an option to add description when adding a task.

  6. planner

    On the Planner schedule tab, you should be able to go back to previous days and see "what was done" and what comments were sent for different tasks. We want to use this as a customer delivery tracker, but, if we cannot "click" on previous days and see (for reference) what was done "last time" then... it is not too helpful

  8. Planner Tasks Disappeared

    All of a sudden I cannot view my planner tactics within Microsoft teams. The tab is still there but when I click to view, the thinking icon appears and then nothing. Any ideas?

  10. Microsoft Planner display

    Display a list of the user specified colour key's. You can set colours to each action but 1) its so small no one can see it. 2) Noone remembers what each colour refers to.

    Also need to be able to colour each bucket panel as required to differentiate it from others a bit more.

  11. Planner - ability to view amount of time employees are spending on specific task

    A client we met with is looking for the ability to see an overview of where their team is spending their time in a given week.

    E.g. Joe has 3 projects that will each take 8 hours. What is he doing with the other 16 hours in a week?

  15. Tasks grouped in Planner tab need a more intuitive layout

    Viewing tasks in the Planner channel in Teams is not user friendly. New buckets are added horizontally, requiring awkward horizontal scrolling, which is not intuitive!

    Buckets should be arrayed and scaled (within reason) on the "Tasks" tab by default, with all buckets easily visible.

    Click "Add a tab" in Teams to see how tightly the available tabs are grouped together. Buckets need a display option similar to this, with a single-click action to open the bucket and display tasks inside.

  17. In Planner, ensure different people with the same initials aren't recorded as the same colour code

    When two people working in Planner with the same first and surname initials are assigned a coloured profile circle (if a profile picture isn't uploaded), this circle appears the same colour.

    e.g. my leader and I both have the same initials (KL) and our profile circles are both the same colour (blue). This is confusing at high-level glance, as it makes us look like we're assigned to each other's work, and/or makes it look like we've been assigned a mass amount of tasks that we haven't.

    It would be easier if the colour of people's profile circles was allocated based…

  19. Reflect the name of the Team when an initial task notification is received from Planner

    When a task is assigned to you, you received a notification that describes the task, but doesn't say which Team the task is associated with. This can be confusing if you are a member of multiple Teams with Planner.
