  1. Planner color-coding for Schedule View and Board

    Add color-coding feature for Schedule View (not only red for overdue tasks)
    Enable color-coding for Buckets, changing whole card on Board for better visualization (not tiny square with color code as in current labels feature)

  3. Please allow buckets window to show all buckets, and change colours of background and tasks.

    The task,, background and buckets colors cannot be altered by the user, Ideally using themes, digital fabrics, colors, contrasts and brightness : particular for dyslexic users who have to view this all day every day.

  4. Create a Checklist from a Template

    It would be very helpful if we could utilize the Planner's checklist options to recreate a recurring checklist from a template. I would like to be able to quickly add a checklist to a channel. We have a channel for each project, and it would be useful to recreate the same checklist of subtasks for each project and then fill them out as we go. We can copy tasks within the same Plan, but I want a way to have a template move from one channel's plan to another.

  9. Please Provide Export/Import Features for Microsoft Planner

    Please Provide Export/Import Features for Microsoft Planner.

    This is crucial for cases such as having to do reporting on data on the planner over periods of time, bulk ingestion of new data, etc.

  10. Supervisor view in Planner

    Please add a supervisor view for Planner so that they can view all the tasks currently assigned for their team members.
    It would be beneficial to have some type of chart view so when leadership team meets, they can review how in-demand their team's services are.

    Our work around is 1:1 meetings and having the employee pull up teams and click on 'planner' to review everything that has been assigned to them.

  11. Restrict Team members to create or delete tasks in Planner

    We would like to use Planner in the Management Team and allocate tasks to our workforce. Currently every team member can create and delete tasks. That should be restricted.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. Planner

    When someone leaves a comment on a task within Planner, other's assigned to the task get a teams message and/or email to advise them a comment has been left. At present the only way to identify a comment is to fully open the task within the planner screen.

  18. 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.

  20. Microsoft Planner Needs Templates

    If you don't provide templates, then at least let us copy/paste plans and rename them. If we can't copy/paste plans, let us copy/paste buckets.

    Copy/pasting tasks is a ridiculous amount of effort.
