  1. Please make it possible to link a task in Planner directly to Outlook.

    Would be AWESOME if the task detail in Planner had a box to identify if the task is a meeting and, if so, that would launch an Outlook invite pre-populated with the details of the task, addressed to the assignees, and showing their availability and suggesting times for the meeting. I am finding that I am creating tasks for planning check-ins where I will have a meeting on that day, and right now I have to manually go to outlook and create a spearate meeting...so no way to keep them synched if I change one, and it creates extra work.

  2. Add cc/FYI Participants to Cards

    I'm leveraging and loving MS Planner, but want the ability to distinguish between those who are truly Assigned to resolve the Task and others who are interested/subscribed/part of the associated comments thread.

    I feel adding a new field "FYI" or "cc", OR enhancing the existing Assignee list to have a flag like "Owner" vs "Participant" could work

  3. Task Gantt chart

    In the graphs tab please add a (gantt) chart timeline view of tasks that shows when they were added, started and completed. This could be organised by bucket, label, person, etc. It will enable us to see tasks that have been outstanding for a long time and also average time to complete tasks.

  4. Task Drag and Drop

    There should be functionality to drag and drop a task between buckets, people etc to move them if required. For example if a task needs to be transferred from one person to another you can organise by people and just move a task sitting in one column into another

  5. When assigning a task to multiple people make it so that the task has to be completed by each individual assignee.

    Currently if one of the multiple assignees completes the task, the entire task is completed and no longer shows as a task for the others. This defeats the purpose of this app. Creating a separate task, which is the same task, and assigning to each team member is very wasteful, painful, and will prevent your users from using your product. It's unacceptable.

  6. Ability to generate a PDF/word/excel report

    In our company we have to generate reports to the client of outstanding actions, and also include these in the monthly report. It would be great if it was possible to generate reports from the planner.

  7. Copying Board

    Currently it is not possible to copy a board. I'd setup a board which was to be used as a template for future boards but when I decided to add a new tab to create a plan from a list that already exists, the board was created and replicated as per the previous - this is perfect. However, any subsequent changes made to the original board is then reflected in the clone board - not cool!! Similarly to how a task can be copied we should be able to copy an entire board and repurpose without it being affected by…

  8. Auto check tasks when task is marked as completed

    A task can consist of a maximum 20 checklist items. Lets say the assignee has not been diligent in checking off their tasks as they go along, when they select that the task has been completed this should trigger the checking off of all unchecked boxes within that task.

  9. Auto reload tab

    We are using a service account logged into Teams to display the Planner calendar on a TV in our work area.
    We need a way to make it auto-refresh every few minutes.
    That way, a team member can add a task on their Teams, and have it automatically populate on the TV.
    Our current work around is to open the Teams Planner on a web browser, and use an extension to auto-refresh every so often. Otherwise, any tasks created in Planner don't show up until it's manually refreshed.

  10. Create Default Views in Planner

    It would be nice to be able to set default views in Planner. For example, my team prefers to Group by Assignment and Filter by Today & Late. It becomes quite cumbersome to have to reset our preferences throughout the day every single time we toggle between Planner and the other Teams apps/features.

  11. Create a task for your To-Do or Planner from a chat/conversation in Teams

    I would like to have the option to create a task for my To-Do from a chat or conversation in Teams. This way if I get an assignment trough Teams I can do an easy follow up. The same for a task in Planner.
    Now I have to make the task manually while chatting with a colleague, or they will still send me an email so I can flag it.

  12. Add a repeating task option for planner in teams.

    It is easy to add a task and assign to members of a team with the planner plugin but I don't see any way to make that task a recurring task such as a recurring meeting in outlook.

  13. Would like to ask if it would be possible within the Planner add on to set a specific time a date for tasks.

    I work in emergency response and in some cases, the Incident management team are located in numerous countries. teams is an excellent way of sharing information and updating the current situation, but we would like to add the functionality of adding a specific due time for tasks set through the planner add on. This will allow tasks to be set and tracked on a very urgent basis.

  14. In planner summary (left sidebar tab) show the team the task belongs to

    When you click on the planner side bar icon and see all of your tasks, it is not obviously which team the task belongs to. Please show the team name under the task name, and in the expanded view of the task.

  16. Assign a member to multiple/all tasks in a bucket

    there should be an easy way to assign a person to multiple or all tasks in a bucket also being able to copy a bucket of tasks, Copying buckets should've been a 1.0 feature. I like the tool but I want it to be better.

  19. subtasks in the planner app

    Being able to create subtasks with separate due dates, assignees, etc. within a task would be helpful to manage internal deadlines. Or to be able to add due dates and assignees to checklist items within a task. Otherwise, with everything as independent tasks, buckets easily become cumbersome and unwieldy.

  20. Planner Schedule View - Better Custom Visualization Enhancements

    Feature request: Teams Planner Schedule/Calendar View

    What would greatly help myself and my team would be if for each project the due date of the task timeframe were highlighted. It's a very helpful visual cue. All of the white blends together and it's difficult to easily discern and conceptualize your week, especially since our team does prefer the calendar view to the bucket view to help with visualizing task timeframes and overlap. I've attached a photo to show what that feature would look like. See how easy it is to quickly assess that Projects A, H, D through G are…
