  1. Enabling the Planner app for select folders

    I'd like to be able to add the Planner app to select folders within our overall TEAMS site, with the ability to restrict access and visibility to just those users in the select folder.

  2. Is there a way to unblock the Planner bot if Blocked in error?

    Cannot get the planner bot back to sending notifications in Activity Stream.

    It appears to be disable for the user completely.

  3. Email notification sent to everyone assigned to a Planner task when someone comments on that task

    If someone comments on a Planner task everyone assigned to that same task should receive an email notification advising of the comment.

    People are commenting on tasks I am assigned to and I am not aware of such comments until I go into each task and see them.

  4. Give substasks same options as task; and ability to see progress of task based on status of subtasks.

    Allow sub-tasks to be managed in the same way as task. I've created a Kanban board using Planner. However, 1 task can have many sub-tasks that needs to be done by different people each with its own due dates. It would be so helpful to be able to see what subtasks are completed and the overall progress of the task. E.G. TASK A due in Dec can have 15 subtasks due at various times in the year. I'd like to assign each subtask to different persons, and see the s% completion of TASK A

  5. Integration with RMM Platforms.

    using the Planner integration of teams to connect with somthing like NinjaRMM?
    Where you say define a Planner object in NinjaRMM then it is created in PLanner with details about the Device, and Organization it was created for.
    When creating the planner object you can choose what "Team/Organization" it should be filed under.

    Basically this would create a "Poor-man's Ticketing System"

  6. Delegate Tasks in Planner like in Outlook Tasks

    I like the ability in Outlook tasks to delegate a task to someone and get notified when there are comments, progress, or it gets completed. Can we do this for Planner tasks? Our workaround is assigning ourselves to the task we are delegating, but then it can become unclear who actually needs to do the work.

  8. HEATMAP view in planner, see movements with an ID stamp

    If an action is moved between buckets or in anyway altered by team members, admin should be able to see a timeline / heatmap of activities by choice.

  9. Select and copy multiple tasks to a bucket

    Allow option to select multiple tasks that you want to copy into a new bucket. Currently, you have to do this one task at a time.

    Or just add an option to copy the entire bucket and be able to select what task you want to copy in the new bucket.

  12. Restrict Team members to create or delete tasks in Planner

    We would like to use Planner in the Management Team and allocate tasks to our workforce. Currently every team member can create and delete tasks. That should be restricted.

  14. Planner needs better work flow - copy buckets - Templates

    We have started using Teams, and naturally Planner.
    But the whole planner / teams intergration seems a bit off. Like their not made for each other.
    The work delegating and tracking tasks for employees is time comsuming, so when i found planner i was i awe, untill i realized ALL Buckets had to be constructed for scratch for each team!
    As we have over 100 project a year, and around 6000 tasks, this process has to be more stream lined, and intergrated.!

    The use of templates, that function independent of what TEAM it belongs to, would be great! And the…

  15. Allow attachments and rtf to be captured when replying to comments in outlook

    When a user replies to a planner comment sent to outlook, they will respond with images, attachments, numbered and bulleted lists. None of these are transferred over to the comment thread in planner. Basically transfer the email thread to planner as if it's in outlook.

  17. add Planner as a default tab (instead of Wiki)

  18. Create Planner Tasks from Email Notifications

    If you could click and drag an email notification from the notifications bar across into a bucket it would be great if the email could be automatically attached to a planner task that opens?
    I'm by no means an expert on how software works so not sure how easy or hard this is.

  19. From the Planner App into Teams, mention into task tiles to which "team/channel/bucket" they belong so that you can prioritize them easily

    From the Planner App into Teams, one can group their tasks per due date but it would be great if they could also sort those by projects afterwards! To do so, seeing to which "Group/channel/bucket" each tile belong would be helpful (pending combined grouping are possible).

  20. More Progress Graphs

    When looking at the board. Can we break down a progress chart for each " ToDo" Item? If you have multiple ongoing clients it's hard to track each client's projects.

    looking for this format.
    COMPANY TEAM/CLIENT/PROJECTS

                            -//CLIENT (project's completion graph, etc) / Project completion graph, etc. 
    

    Right now it's just.
    COMPANY TEAM/CLIENT/PROJECTS
