  1. Fix session expirations in Microsoft Teams

    When I leave Planner tab open in Teams, I VERY regularly am given a message that "your session has expired. Can you please sign in again? Sorry for the inconvenience" This prompt provides nothing but a "login now" button and never requests password or username. Why can this not automatically retry on its own? Why must I babysit a client that is supposed to be dedicated to this cause? Just why?

  2. Planner Tasks - Start/End Date Picker

    When date and time format is set to "English (New Zealand)", the Start and End date picker sets the date incorrectly.

  3. Planner task 'Due date' should default to 'Start date'

    It would help if the 'Due date' could default to the 'Start date' upon capture.

    Not only does it make logical sense, but also when both start and due are in the next month, one wouldn't have to scroll to it twice in the calendar dropdown.

  4. Planner, visibility of To Do's assigned to others in Team

    I cannot see the items I have assigned to others within planner. Therefore wouldn't be able to follow up if an action is forgotten about. can this be changed?

  5. View by assignee in Teams Planner

    The view of Planner, in Teams, can't be changed to be "By Assignee". I'd like that fixed.

  6. Create a plan without a group

    Creating a new plan in planner should NOT automatically create an entire new group with a sharepoint space, calendar, etc etc. Not every plan needs all these bells and whistles. There should be options to create a new group, add to existing group, or add to existing channel that is the child of a group.

    Additionally, there should be a way to see an aggregated view of all planner tasks in subchannels of a parent group. We are using a Team to manage a program of projects with channels for the individual projects. Lack of this capability prevents having a…

  7. Group my personal tasks in buckets

    We work with Scrum (ToDo - Doing - Done). Currently, you can only group your personal tasks by status. We want to group the tasks according to the buckets of the different planners.

  8. Planner - Set default to "Due Date", not "Progress"

    I would love it if you could set Planner's sorting to default to "Due Date" and not "Progress".

    I never use the progress feature because it's pretty much useless for what we're doing, so I'm constantly having to change the sort to be relevant to me.

    I feel like this could be an account setting with very little effort.

  9. 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.

  10. watch lists for planner tasks

    In Teams (and Planner) add the capability to have a watch/notification list so that when comments are posted to the task, everyone on the watch/notification list receives an email with that update.

    secondly, give an option for people to receive notifications immediately, as a weekly digest, or daily... just as you can do in Sharepoint.

    In Teams, I have teams of people assigned to a task with a checklist so they are all aware of what has to be done and can check off progress. However, if there is an update, they AND ME (the manager) need to know the…

  11. 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.

  12. Planner in Teams - Display options - Collapse, Tiles, etc.

    I have seen multiple different posts but I couldn't find this suggestion: Planner within Teams is .. clunky. The buckets are too wide and too big and there is no way to shrink or resize the columns or display settings or change the display to a different view or simply collapse all buckets into 'tiles' which you can then open/close.
    This feels like a very basic integration that hasn't been completed yet.

  13. Planner

    On planner-
    Link tasks together in a cascade/waterfall style so when one is completed the next becomes active and the allocated team members are notified.

    Alternatively, allocate individual checklist items in a task to team members and have notifications when each is completed and can move on to the rest.
    If this is the way you go, ensure checklist functionality includes order tasks need completing and if some tasks can be done at same time (by different team members) and due dates for completion.

  16. 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. Copy an existing Planner to another tab

    As for nom in Planner online users can copy an existing planner, but this functionnality is not available in Teams, I can "only" copy a task from one planner to another but can copy an entire planner to a new tab.

  19. Planner member permission

    I need to controll the members permission to delete, or edit tasks, because when the manager assign a task to someone, this employee can delete the task or change the due date without any permission check.

  20. Provide full functionality in Teams for Planner, not just My tasks.

    There is nothing showing up in activity. The only tasks I can see in the teams program is My Tasks and only items directly assigned to me. I want to be able to see everything and create and edit all tasks like on the web interface.
