  1. 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.

  2. Windows Insider-like Teams bug reporting

    We're having a number of issues with Teams (Connectors apparently not connecting, slow notifications in general, etc etc) which do not seem to fit into this UserVoice forum for future suggestions. I'm hesitant to use the help forum, as Suphatra has noted that it's not actively monitored by the Teams team (!), but I also don't want to actively fill this forum with bug reports.

    Is there a best practices for filling out bug reports? The Windows Insider team is doing a good job with this, might there be something similar in here?

    For the record, I don't seem to…

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hey Kip, it’s Suphatra.

    So, right now I’m not outfitted to triage bugs from the general public. Then I’d never see my family, and I’m pretty sure they aren’t down with that. Right now we’re validating and bug triaging only from beta customers and internally, but that will change over time as the product matures.

    I have added a category in UserVoice called “Bugs” (I just added it today!). So that people can view and vote on bugs that have happened to them. I’d like to see if we find patterns of bugs.

    For now, I hope that helps. You can always email me or ping me on Twitter at @skprufo if a bug has really ruined your day.

    Cheers,
    Suphatra

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Task Dependancies with Auto Calculate Task Start and End Dates

    Link tasks to precendents with notifications when task completes, so next person can comence work on following tasks. It would also be great to be able to define how many days between start and end of each task, and due date of final task, (or any other task in the chain) so the start and end dates of all the tasks in the chain can be automatically calculated.

  7. Comments on Planner to have same functionality as Teams chats

    I would like to be able to to have all my comms on a project happen via Planner instead of email, so that others can view the project and see all the decisions made / history on a project.

    In order for this to be effective the "comments"" section on planner should have the same functionality as Teams chat, e.g. ability to add screenshots, proper formatting, link display etc.

  9. 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.

  11. Planner supervisor and better calendar integration

    First, there is a bug but it's only possible add planner calendar to outlook if you are owner of the plan itself, being member isn't enough.

    Also, it would be awesome to create a supervisor role to see all the tasks in outlook calendar, because once you sync it with iCalendar thing you only see your assigned tasks, this way if you are team manager, you have to be assigned in every task.

    But to polish it even more, planner tasks should go directly into calendar, it is obvious that you need it.

    Thanks for this forum.

  12. Paste checklist as multiple items

    When I paste multiple lines into the checklist entry line from Notepad or Excel, they all get put as one item. It would be nice if pasting 3 lines of text would make 3 separate checklist items.

  13. Scrolling down in Planner should scroll the view horizontally

    Scrolling down does nothing in Planner, unless I hover a bucket with a lot of items (then it scrolls vertically in the bucket).
    It would be better if scrolling would scroll the view horizontally, or atleast to have this option.

  14. Tag people on comments in Microsoft Planner

    It would be so practical if we could to tag people (@) in comments to call their attention into updates on tasks.
    So those people would receive an special attention email.

  15. Enrich the Schedule view of Microsoft Planner

    There is so much wasted white space in the Schedule view of Planner. The functionality could really be enriched by adding Bucket name, Labels, owner icons, and other 'small' details to the bar of each task in the Schedule view. And please, please show all the tasks visible with scrolling in the Schedule view -- don't hide them with a "+X more" hyperlink.

  18. Microsoft Planner Bucket Task List

    Allow us to enter tasks lists in the order in which we type. The first task we type is the first task in the bucket list. New tasks go below tasks already added.

    Completing a bucket only to realize your very first task is at the bottom and all subsequent tasks are above it is dumb. It's an incredibly frustrating task to drag/drop your tasks in the inverted order.

    Almost as frustrating as not being able to copy/paste buckets or plans. Or not having templates.

    Come on, trello has you beat hands down in this. But i WANT to use…

  19. Ability to Rename Plans from within Teams

    We have found that some of our more enthusiastic adopters have used the same names for plans, although they belong to different teams. This makes it confusing when adding a new task if a user belongs to multiple teams who have created plans independently but with the same name

  20. Ability to see all tasks assigned to a teammember across channels and teams

    It would be great to see all tasks assigned to someone other than myself across all teams and channels.

    As a manager, I need the ability to see all tasks assigned to members of my department across all MS Teams and Channels so that I can ensure there is no duplication of effort and to manage workload and expectations.
