  1. Planner "Schedule" view weekends

    Please style the weekends with a different color or allow a "work week" view. I am forever scheduling tasks to end on Saturday or start on Sunday and then having to go back and fix my work

  2. Only the owner should be able to mark a task complete or delete it.

    At the moment anybody can mark a task complete. I would prefer that only a owner should be able to mark a task complete. Also give a possibility to archive completed tasks and deleted tasks with a search facility. Nobody other than owner should be able to delete it from there. This is important for historical record keeping and tracing. This is urgent please.

  4. Acknowledge Assigned Tasks

    Once a task is assined to someone, it would be useful to have an acknowledge process where he accepts the tasks.

    Tasks not accepted should be shown somewhere so that a manager can oversee if projects are moving or not and if team members are actually checking what was assigned to them.

  5. Provide ability to create swimlanes, or exception workflows

    Custom kanban board design functionality such as what LeanKit provides allow board designers to create horizontal and vertical splits within columns to allow for more complex workflows. An example would be a horizontal swimlane for work that needs to be expedited.

  6. Checklist template or duplicate from one card to the other

    It would be nice to be able to create checklist templates or duplicate check list to one card to the other one in Planner.

    As a common workflow, most task might have the same checklist from one task to the other and it is time consuming to recreate check list for each card on a board

  7. Disable moving columns in Planner with Ctrl + Left / Right Arrow

    I sue Ctrl + Arrow / Ctrl + Arrow + Shift to move / select words and it is a bit annoying to have that move a column.
    I jump / select words much more often than moving the columns around (does that even really need a keyboard short cut)

  10. Change initial tab

    Right now, the Conversation tab is the initial tab in a channel. I would like to put my Planner tab as the initial tab, so everytime I open my Channel, the first thing I see is the Planner tasks. I can only arrange the new tabs, but the Conversation, File and OneNote can not be changed nor deleted.

  11. A way to export planner

    It would be nice to have a way to export a planner bucket. Maybe to something generic, like CSV? Or something easy to interpret?

  12. Automatically populate a new task at the bottom of the task list (currently populates at the top and have to drag all the way down everytime

    Saves a new task at the bottom of the task list in the bucket, instead of currently having to drag the new task to the bottom of the list every time, as we add tasks in the order they should be done.

  13. All view for planner - sort by due and assigned person

    When I look on the Planner page, I can view by All. There's not much info on there though, it would be great to sort also by persons assigned and the due dates.

  14. 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.

  15. Please add a simple Card Counter for each bucket

    Currently, the only way I can see of getting a bucket-by-bucket total of cards in Planner is to count them by eye. Error-prone, time consuming and ... well pretty naff

    Just add a simple counter to the Bucket title, pls :)

  18. task sorting on due date in planner tab in teams

    In Microsoft teams, I would like the possibility to sort tasks on due date. Also only a owner should be allowed to delete a task. Give a possibility to archive the tasks on a separate tab.

  19. Fix Planner / Teams interface

    I created a Plan in a Teams channel and added some tasks with assignments to team members. Feeling constrained by the Teams UI, I clicked the icon on the teams plan page to open the planner website. In planner I can see the plan but it has no tasks in it. But on the "My Tasks" page of planner, my assigned tasks are displayed. I can't figure out how to tell planner about the tasks in this plan.

  20. Make a post or comment Actionable

    Had an interesting use case pop up today -- one of my team members sent a review request as an email to the team with a link to a Teams-based document. When I asked why she sent an email, she said she considers email to be more "visible" than things in Teams, and that sometimes things are lost in Teams.

    Further investigation concluded that if we had the ability to convert conversations or bits of conversations into actionable items and add reminders/notifications to those somehow, the tool would be infinitely easier to use.

    I think it is critical to have…
