  1. Notifications when comments are made on a task

    Currently, Planner only sends a notification to the assignees when there is a second comment posted to a task. No notification is sent when the first comment is made.

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Planner Assignment filter should only show people with assigned tasks in the plan

    If you're working in a team with a lot of people, but a specific plan has tasks only assigned to a few people, the Filter functionality should only show people who have tasks assigned in that planner.

    Right now filtering by person on a planner attached to a large team is more cumbersome than it needs to be.

  10. Planner notification on due tasks

    It would be great if there was a functionality which sends notifications to assigend colleagues when a a task in planner is close to its duedate or overdue, so team members don't have to monitor planner all the time.

  11. Filter out Certain Buckets

    Please enable the possibility to filter out certain buckets in the Buckets view. Not all buckets are relevant to me, and thus I don't want them occupying a lot of my screen space.

  12. View All Tasks for a Team

    We started using this at work to track multiple projects, but currently there doesn't seem to view all the plans at once. This would be great for managers who want to have an overview of multiple projects and see how the tasks are distributed among the users.

  13. Need to add Custom Fields and Export to Excel

    My company is looking for a service almost exactly like the Planner App that is embedded within Microsoft Teams.

    The only thing holding my colleagues back from the switch is the lack of customization which is typically associated with MS products.

    Specifically, we need to add a Project Worth ($$$) section to help us convert qualitative data into something quantifiable. Additionally, it would be nice if we could export the fields to Excel.

  15. Include options to move labels and tags based in priority

    Currently the position of labels and tags is fixed in planner. There is no option in planner to say, display the last 2 labels first. Say I want to use red for critical and yellow for important and these 2 labels are in different places. Need one option to display them together and also maybe to just display the labels/tags that I want and not others.

  16. Planner

    There should be a way to add Planner to your main Hub on the left hand side instead of just having it as a Tab under a specific Team.

  17. Provide ability to create swimlanes, or exception workflows

    Custom kanban board design functionality such as what LeanKit provides allow board designers to create horizontal and vertical splits within columns to allow for more complex workflows. An example would be a horizontal swimlane for work that needs to be expedited.

  18. Make Planner App more visible

    We have a lot of none IT-people in the back-office.
    I must show them frequently where the planer app is (an their tasks) because its so hidden in teams.
    (Click the three tiny dots, click on teams).


    • I wish i could modify teams so that Planner is a main button the the side menu

    • I wish i could set the app any as default start page, company wide, so they see every-morning their tasks.

    • i wish teams would cache things. I can`t stand this endless loading indicators while switching between pages

  19. Assign Task to Not memeber without add them as Member

    Why assign a task to someone add that person to team? why Microsoft do no allow add task to people that are not part of the team, that person should be able to work with the task assigned to him but not add access to all the Team. It is like in Outlook you create a task and assign it to "Genaro" and automatically "Genaro" get access to all your mail to be able to work in that task.

    We need separate permission.

  20. Show Tasks Assigned to Direct Reports

    Need to be able to see direct report work load and what they are working on and what is assigned to them. Otherwise planner is not that useful. Please add this feature.
