  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  4. Provide ability to create swimlanes, or exception workflows

    Custom kanban board design functionality such as what LeanKit provides allow board designers to create horizontal and vertical splits within columns to allow for more complex workflows. An example would be a horizontal swimlane for work that needs to be expedited.

  5. Tags on tasks (to identify team, project, type of tasks, priority ...)

    It could be really useful to add tags on tasks in order to search, sort, filter in a list of tasks.
    For project management, it will be easier to go from a general view to a detailed per ressource, project, customer ...
    And for everyone to list urgent tasks, from a specific project, or subject, or solution ...

  6. Please add a text editor to Planner description, comments and checklist items

    I'd like to be able to make my description and comments more useful, and having a text editor would help that. In particular, being able to add links INLINE instead of only as attachments is key. As attachments, they lose context that can be provided in a description, comment or checklist item. And sometimes, the checklist item is simply that a specific link needs to be reviewed.

  7. Planning across tools (GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket, Custom Issues)

    Coming from a GitHub + Slack user space, I had a look at Microsoft Teams. My first impression was a kind of chaotic user interface, which was not clear to use for me. However, I searched for the reason, why to use it and had a great idea, which obviously is not implemented.

    We have different sources for Issues like GitHub, GitLab, or even other tools. There are some capabilities of GitHub for example to implement a kanban board, but what I expected from Microsoft Teams was the integration of all this sources to any other tool like the Planner. …

  8. Add "include in a conversation" feature for Planner tasks using @ symbol

    The latest update to Teams allows users to include information from an app in a conversation, such as Places data and WIkipedia info.
    However, we are not able to include information about a Planner task directly this way. It appears we still have to use the workaround of opening the task, using "Copy link to task" from the Planner board, then pasting in the conversation to have a direct link to the task from a conversation.

    It would be great if we could type @Planner and gather task information this way. Oddly enough, this feature does seem to be available…

  9. planner assign group

    We use the Planner as a group. We would like to add tasks to the whole group instead of one person.

    I see this working the same way as in the chat options
    "@Team name" thye whole group is assigned this task and will get a notification about it.

  10. Planner Integration- group by don’t exist un Teams

    With Planner in Team’s environment, you don’t have the group by option, who exists in Planner Online or movil app.
    It’s a very interesting option

  14. Progress and Status Option

    I would like the progress/status option in Planner to be customizable to where we can update and add in the type of progress/status we would like to see. Similar to how the labels you can type in the name, but would like to see this applied to the progress/status feature and this to be updated as well in the charts view.

  16. 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.

  17. Kanban Tree for sub tasks

    Dear MS Teams,

    Our team is using MS Teams Planner and we really like it! It really is working well so far.
    One thing that would be really great to have is the establishment of connection with Main Task and sub Tasks. We create main tasks based on our milestones, and we create sub tasks based on the main tasks. Sometimes on main task has several sub tasks that could be handled by many team members. So it would be really nice if we can see the tree of main task-sub tasks.

  18. Several MS Planner plans join together into a master MS plan

    It would be helpful if several MS Planner plans (one per channel) could be automatically aggregated into some kind of master MS Planner plan in the General channel.
