  3. Not user friendly

    Take notes from Monday.com. Their system is so customizable and user friendly, while also having an actual list graphic for an action item list. I am shocked that I can't export an actual list to excel, one a Microsoft program, while on Monday.com I am able to do so. Upgrade user interaction interface please!

  4. 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. …

  5. Assignments due

    There should be a complete list of all your assignments in chronological order of due dates instead of all your assignments in each subject. It takes 5-10 seconds (depending on how slow your wifi/data is) to switch between subjects which can be a bit annoying at times. I would like to see all of my assignments for all of my subjects together.

  9. Add colour to Planner!

    Planner is great for integration with other Microsoft office tools but it falls far behind competitors with it's utter bland-ness! Having the ability to change the dull grey background as well as colour-code and add images to tasks would lift Planner's game no-end & encourage 1000's more to migrate from other platforms.

  11. Assigning a task in Planner to multiple team members

    When assigning a task in Planner to multiple team members add a feature that requires everyone to click "complete" so it stays "Open". It often happens that one person on the assigned task completes their portion of the work and clicks their item - and - the entire task complete. If it were the case that all items in the list within a task must be checked "complete" before the main task can be checked "complete" that would be very useful.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Integrate Tom's Planner or similar Planner Fuctionality

    Really would love to see the Planner App work across multiple channels. It would be nice to pick and choose, which channels, & which tasks/schedules appear in a gantt chart. We use Tom's Planner and love it's simplicity. Maybe integration with Tom's Planner would be great.

  18. Keyboard shortcut for quick-assign self to Planner task

    Trello has a keyboard shortcut (space) that, when pressed while hovering over a task, assigns or unassigns you to that task.

    Now with Planner integration with Microsoft To-Do, I've found it annoying that to simply assign a task to myself I have to go through several steps, when it's incredibly easy in Trello in comparison.

    Most tasks I add are for myself, so it would be much better for a simple keyboard shortcut (space while hovering) to assign me to that task.

  19. Creating to do items for multiple team members

    When creating to do items (e.g. task) they can be assigned to multiple team members but not every team member can confirm their task is done without closing the entire to do item. It should be possible that individual team members confirm the task is completed and once all have confirmed the to do item can (automatically) be closed.
