  3. Planner tab should remember my Group by and Filter settings

    Every time I switch away from and back to the Planner tab (client app, not web), it resets to the default view with Filter (0) and Group by Bucket. I always have to apply Group by Process, and sometimes Filter by 'assigned to me', which is annoying. It would be nice if it remembered my last view settings.

  4. Transfer task between planner

    In some project I use different planner for channels so that each channel uses its own workflow.

    At some point I need to move a task to another plan.
    It would be great to be able to do that

  5. 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!

  7. 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…

  9. Manager View / View All Team Tasks

    Currently, when I open Planner within the Teams desktop app, I only have the option to see my tasks. I have direct reports whose tasks I need to monitor. So I need to open the Planner web app separately, just so I can see unassigned tasks within plans that aren't mine or to see tasks assigned to other people. That's kind of a silly oversight.

  11. improve charts within Planner.

    it would be nice to have charts and analytics to display which task assignee has performed better and worse, and for them to be interactive similarly to the Power BI ones. would be a good starting point e.g clicking on the status chart, on the "completed" segment, and having the Members chart changing accordingly. show how many tasks someone has completed.

  12. Independently task progress.

    It would be great if multiple persons a task is assigned to could independently indicate progress.

  14. Handle not Team Related tasks

    The Planner should also handle own Tasks which not related to a team.

  15. Assign or categorise multiple tasks in one action

    Make it easy to mass assign (or label) tasks in a single action. If I have 100 tasks and all need to be assigned to one person who will then re-distribute them, and 50 should be under a single label such as 'Red' or 'Sprint 1' and the other 50 as another e.g. 'Amber' or 'Sprint 2', currently all of them need to be indivually updated manually.

  16. charts - Member Bar Chart

  17. Planner - Allow percentages of each task to be given to different people which they sign off on when complete.

    Assign percentage of task to different members

    I know that you can assign one task to different members, but it would be great if, each member could be given a percentage of that task and then allowed to hit complete once they have completed their portion of the task.

  18. Planner

    There should be a way to add Planner to your main Hub on the left hand side instead of just having it as a Tab under a specific Team.

  20. 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.
