  1. 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.

  2. view

    There should be more layout options for Team Planner. The current and only available view is barely usable as you can only see a handful of rows and columns. There should be choices in layouts to where it can look like MS Excel or Project so we I can customize to see all my tasks and projects (i.e. buckets). Even views similar to Windows Explorer (i.e. Details, content, list, tiles, etc..) would be a good start.

  4. Within Planner it would be great to be able to upload images or files to each task, instead of having to copy a link or link to Sharepoint

  5. Make it possible to copy an existing plan for a completely new project.

    Right now it is only possible to make a mirror of an existing plan, meaning that buckets and tasks will appear in all these mirrors.

    So, what we would like is to be able to create a template plan, that can copied into a new tab, and be used again and again for similar projects.

  6. Planner's management of buckets

    Need easier and quicker ways to manage the buckets by providing sort the list, manage the buckets via a list (move up/down), move more than one bucket at a time.

    in a team with more buckets than the width provides, it is hard to move a group of buckets from the end of the list to the beginning.

  7. Copy Comment text in Planner Tabs

  8. Scroll bars are very difficult to see in Planner window

    I need to scroll horizontally in a Planner window. It took several days for me to finally see there is a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. Contrast needs to be better

  11. Bug or feature?

    Planner sometimes doesn't update the description of a card after some user has changed the contents of said description. Maybe a "save" button or a pop up that tells you if it is applying the changes you made once you click out off the card would be in order. I know the Sync proccess isn't immediate, but with no way to tell if what I wrote will stay it's somewhat hard to convey important information about a task reliably to my colleagues.

    If this is native to Microsoft Planner itself then I'd like to know if maybe their Support has…

  12. Real Time Planner (Auto Refresh)

    It would be nice to have the Planner update in real time when a teammate changes / updates a card like Trello does.

  13. Teams planner/tasks

    When i click my initials, i'd like to see all of my planner tasks in one place - instead of having to go into each 'team' and 'channel' to review what tasks i have that are due/may be due at the same time as something else.

  16. Improve Planner

    Give an option to show or not show on card people assigned to a task
    When all items are not shown on card, reduce size of box giving complete task and options buttons in one line. Also add quick view buttons for certain sections next to these buttons - this should pop out the information but not change the view permanently.
    Allow an option to visually distinguish items that I am assigned to, eg. icon/colour.

  17. conversation within task

    as soon as we push a message within a task, it informs all the member of the team, even if the task is allocated to only 2 members "only" => it would be better to inform only the allocated people of the concerned task instead of the total members list of the team

  20. Create a plan without a group

    Creating a new plan in planner should NOT automatically create an entire new group with a sharepoint space, calendar, etc etc. Not every plan needs all these bells and whistles. There should be options to create a new group, add to existing group, or add to existing channel that is the child of a group.

    Additionally, there should be a way to see an aggregated view of all planner tasks in subchannels of a parent group. We are using a Team to manage a program of projects with channels for the individual projects. Lack of this capability prevents having a…
