  1. View All Tasks for a Team

    We started using this at work to track multiple projects, but currently there doesn't seem to view all the plans at once. This would be great for managers who want to have an overview of multiple projects and see how the tasks are distributed among the users.

  2. Need to add Custom Fields and Export to Excel

    My company is looking for a service almost exactly like the Planner App that is embedded within Microsoft Teams.

    The only thing holding my colleagues back from the switch is the lack of customization which is typically associated with MS products.

    Specifically, we need to add a Project Worth ($$$) section to help us convert qualitative data into something quantifiable. Additionally, it would be nice if we could export the fields to Excel.

  3. planner icons

    Currently the icons in Planner tabs do not use the associated Skype for Business pictures and instead show the generic system initials. It would be ideal for this to scrape the same data that Teams is using to pull in the Skype picture as it becomes tedious to hover over each icon with the same initials to figure out who is assigned a specific task. I do not see an existing ask for this when searching here for planner.

  4. There is no draft that is recorded as in emails???

    I was completting a task planner filling the information. However, when i miminise the window all the information was LOST losing 1 hour of word. I don't understand why it was not recorded as a draft or even does not allow the option or provide a warning that you are going to lose the information if you minimise the window..

  5. Sharing files on Teams Planner

    It's impossible to drag and drop a file on Teams planner or at least share a file, only possible on Microsoft 365.

  6. 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. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Reflect the name of the Team when an initial task notification is received from Planner

    When a task is assigned to you, you received a notification that describes the task, but doesn't say which Team the task is associated with. This can be confusing if you are a member of multiple Teams with Planner.

  10. 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.

  13. Assign Task to Not memeber without add them as Member

    Why assign a task to someone add that person to team? why Microsoft do no allow add task to people that are not part of the team, that person should be able to work with the task assigned to him but not add access to all the Team. It is like in Outlook you create a task and assign it to "Genaro" and automatically "Genaro" get access to all your mail to be able to work in that task.

    We need separate permission.

  16. "Filter by" & "Group By" web option in Native Teams App

    Add the super useful web features in the native desktop Team Client (attachment).

    - Filter
    - Group By
    - Then set any of the above, the default view when you go back into Teams.

    Thanks!

  18. It could be great to change the planner background

    The very limited theme are not enough to energize the planner background. Put picture is a minimum, what do you think?

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
