  1. When working in Planner, allow another window option so you can converse and see planner at the same time

    We use planner for deployment of projects. Tasks are listed. Only problem is if you are in planner and then want to send a message in conversations tab, you literally have to exit planner, go to your conversations tab and then go back to planner. There should be a way that you can keep planner up and converse at the same time. Give option for planner to be in another 'window'

    Notifications and updates should only go to the assigned persons and the task creator/owner

  4. Users outside Team to View and Add Planner Tasks

    On the tech community I have seen requests from admins for users outside of a Team to View and Add Planner Tasks to a Planner inside of that Team as opposed to setting up a new team for users. This would be great functionality for team leaders, managers, and where several departments work together but don't need access to each others content.

  6. Increase the no of Check List items of a task in planner

    My suggestion is to have more check list items in a task of Planner. Currently it is limited to 20 items max.

    It would be great if multiple persons a task is assigned to could independently indicate progress.

  8. Template or Copying ability with Planner

    I would like to create a template of tasks that can be used for multiple projects or have the ability to copy multiple tasks at once.

  9. Planner "Schedule" view weekends

    Please style the weekends with a different color or allow a "work week" view. I am forever scheduling tasks to end on Saturday or start on Sunday and then having to go back and fix my work

  10. Better visual contrast in MS Planner

    The visibility in MS Planner is bad. The individual items are indistinguishable from the background. Text is thin and difficult to read.
    Other applications are perfectly fine, so it's not my settings.

  12. 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.…

  13. Personalizing planner

    Both ideas are for planner, and seems fairly easy to add:
    Adding a way to fully edit tags available, like only having two tags on a planner, with red and blue color.
    Adding ability to set a percent on the advancement of a task, like "35%".

  15. conversation within task

    as soon as we push a message within a task, it informs all the member of the team, even if the task is allocated to only 2 members "only" => it would be better to inform only the allocated people of the concerned task instead of the total members list of the team

  16. Include a Task Manager Section

    It would amazing to have a task manager where you can create a task list and assign them to team members and mark the status of them. This would allow for easy allocation and management of tasks, streamlining communication for all, and a historical record of when task were opened and completed.

  18. To Do Lists (Tasks) - Board View

    Please could you develop board view available in planner for personal to do lists.

    This will support different users interaction with personal to do lists and provides a bespoke view dependent on the users wishes and how they wish to organise their own tasks

    Supports accessibility

  19. shift activities and Planner task integration

    Shifts are created for teams. And so is planner.

    Currently, supervisors are able to assign activities to team members in shifts. But there is no way to track the status of those activities.

    The best way to achieve this is to integrate shifts activities with planner tasks or better replace activities with tasks. So inside the shift, when you create an activity, you are in fact creating a planner task that is automatically assigned to the person(s) who the shift is assigned to. People who work on this activity can mark is as complete when the activity is completed. So…

  20. Use Planner App to Assign Tasks without a Specific Team

    It is very restrictive that Planner can only be used to create tasks within specific Teams.
    It would be great to be able to create a plan from your own planner app and assign tasks to individuals, not having to have a specific team or channel associated to it.
    Planner should be able to be used both within Specific Teams, but also as a Standalone to assign tasks to anyone in the business.
