  1. Can we please have notifications for things like adding planner tasks that are assigned to a specific person?

    Add a desktop alert or email or both for Tasks added in Planner or other apps that would require letting someone know they have something to do.

  2. Planner item description

    It would be nice if the planner item description had some formatting options. I use this to add details with headers/bullet points/strikethrough etc. Thanks!

  3. Sorting feature from Planner is missing in Team application

    Hi, I have installed Teams on my computer. I have added a sheet to get a link to planner (to an existing plan). Unfortunately, when I use Planner inside Teams window, I am not able to sort the tasks by people or status, as I can do in the Planner on-line application. It seems that this sorting feature was forgotten...
    Thanks

  7. Teams who have the same name - Major inconsistencies !!

    My colleague created a team "SJ Test Team" and I created one with exactly the same name, Teams allowed this.
    In SharePoint his team had the URL xxxx\SJTestTEAM\xxxx & mine had a URL of xxxx\SJTestTeam23\xxxx - no idea why it randomly choose the number 23 (maybe the dev guy is a Michael Jordan fan?)

    But that's not the weird thing, in exchange the associated distribution lists are SJTestTeam@xxxx.com and SJTestTeam8800@xxxx.com

    How on earth has SPO 23 become Exchange 8800? This is bonkers, we have planner disabled but I'd love to know what the team would be called in there. Either…

  8. Map Teams to Plans 1:1 and Channels to Buckets 1:1

    The mapping of Teams to Groups to Plans in a 1:1 connection would make the most sense. However, having Buckets mapped to Channels could work as a nice filter for the Planner UI in Microsoft Teams.

    Hope you are thinking about it!

  9. Activity feed / Rights system for Planner

    The ability to limit access to planner tasks e.g. only the creator of a task can delete it. Right now anyone in the team just could (accidently) delete a task without anyone know about it. Also, a "activity feed" in the main Chat would be nice, so users know when someone comments on their tasks or creating a new task with you as the responsible person. Right now you have to look at the planner what your tasks are without any notification.

  10. 1. Attachment pictures (multiple by OneDrive) and local machine. 2. Outlook integration. 3. Fullscreen.


    1. Allow for selecting multiple pictures while attaching from OneDrive. Allow for upload directly from local machine.


    2. Outlook integration - attach a mail to a task (Planner)


    3. Fullscreen dosen't work - see attachment.

  11. Automatic generated Tasks in combination with a competence matrix (list)

    Competence Matrix which regulates which team members are capable of which work. For this it would be necessary to record a list of competences for the individual team members. The competences correspond to the necessary work, which can then be conveniently selected in the tasks. Based on the tasks then the participant or several participants is automatically proposed. So the supervisor does not have to know each time who could do the planned task. It would be perfect if the whole thing is coupled with the staff hub and the tasks still includes the availability of team members. This whole…

  13. Planner Improvements needed

    My company is in the process of moving to Teams and having previously spearheaded a trial of Trello within a number of our stores i'm looking to the potential to switch all European stores (200+ stores 10'000's+ users) onto Teams as well as our global back of house team.

    There are a few issues standing in our way that I would like to discuss further with Microsoft before we commit that would be deal breakers to us moving and growing our platform. We are already avid Office users across our business and dealing with the roadbumps now would be the…

  14. Chrome

    I'm challenged with trying to utilize what O365 offers vs the third party our organization currently has.

    Our construction company(we run/build restaurants (110 and counting we operate)) is trying to replace Procore which is a more specialized version of Planner I'd suggest. So, maybe for the zero cost we could use Planner.

    My first impression is that it feels like Microsoft (clunky and incomplete). My hope is that they progress it as it's Soooo close, but yet so far from anybody getting excitment from it with all the standard clunky 1/2 baked Microsoft-ism's.

    So, my contribution as I don't know…

  16. Allow for saving of Comments prior clicking "Send"

    As a Teams user, I would like to enter comments and have them saved prior to clicking "Send" so that I do not lose what I've typed if I switch windows within Teams.

  17. Status Change & Labelling

    Whenever the status is marked as complete, the task description gets striked off and moved to 'Completed' bucket even when we have a custom bucket. Also, it would be nice to have the color of the label as the background for the task.

  19. 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.
