  1. User Interface

    it would be nice if there were a way to customize the navigation bar on the left - to maybe have shortcuts to other apps such as personal outlook to see personal tasks etc. and then something to get into other commonly used

  3. This is really about Planner, but we want to use Planner in Teams exclusively so...can you provide a summary view for Planner Items s

    We'd like to have Planner items be compact like maybe 2 lines max and be able to float over them for more detail or to open them up. That way we just see the summary item in the various bucket/lists sections and they are easier to skim and scroll through. Make sense?

  5. monthly

    It would be better if you could view the schedule in 'Month', not only daily, or weekly.
    Also, it would be better if Outlook scheduler be integrated to Teams.

  7. Ability categorize buckets (group by plan) function.

    Using planner App (left side panel) in Teams be able to categorize buckets (group by plan) function. I want to sort the order of most frequently used Planner buckets to the left and not have to scroll.

  8. 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?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. Be able to remove or edit plans from the Existing Plans dropdown

    You cannot edit (e.g. rename) or delete an existing plan when adding a Planner tab in Teams. This means that junks ones accumulate.

  14. 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…

  15. Add colour to Planner!

    Planner is great for integration with other Microsoft office tools but it falls far behind competitors with it's utter bland-ness! Having the ability to change the dull grey background as well as colour-code and add images to tasks would lift Planner's game no-end & encourage 1000's more to migrate from other platforms.

  16. Add @mentions in planner tabs

    @ mentions do not seem to work outside of the chat and channels. It would be useful to be able to tag someone directly in the Notes, Checklist and Comments of a planner card.

  17. planner

    Our company uses planner a lot in teams via the integrate plan in tab feature. We love that. We miss two things:


    • If I add a comment in a planner card, I cannnot adress somebody (of my team where planner board is integrated) by the @symbol. This would be helpful and this person should get a teams notification.

  18. Checklist items should work like tasks

    Under a task the checklist should work like a normal task, to be more efficient. A subtask might be delegated to other workers and might need their own info and attached files etc.

  19. 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.

  20. when you remove people from a MS Team their planner audit trail disappears!

    when you remove people from a MS Team their planner audit trail disappears!

    Their actions and any tasks they create now say 'former member'. This is a serious problem for archiving and record keeping. Current work around is to remember to export the plan to excel before removing a member
