  1. Add a setting to Planner buckets that automatically organises tasks in order of due date

    I have a bucket in a Planner tab that is populated with many tasks, and I have to keep manually dragging these into order of due date. This is because Teams places the task entries at the top of the bucket by default.

    So a setting to automatically order all tasks within a particular bucket relating to a certain property would remove the need to manually reposition tasks as they are added. You could have them ordered in due date for example, which is what I am after, or alternatively in order of start date, label colour or progress.

    • Map Teams to Plans 1:1 and Channels to Buckets 1:1

      The mapping of Teams to Groups to Plans in a 1:1 connection would make the most sense. However, having Buckets mapped to Channels could work as a nice filter for the Planner UI in Microsoft Teams.

      Hope you are thinking about it!

      • Increase Teams Planner Checklist character limit

        Character limit is 100 for Teams Planner Checklist items. I propose that be increased to at least 255, if not more.

        • Planner: Filter by color

          As the colors in Planner are referred to different labs, it could be nice to have the possibility of filter by colors.

          • Office 365 Planner Link

            It would be nice to be able to click on a button that takes you to the overall view for an individual for assigned tasks. As it is now designed I have added a Planner Tab to one of my projects, but I can only see tasks related to that project. This is good, but it would be even better if I could easily switch to the multi-team view of all my Planner tasks across all teams. To do this now I need to open a separate office 365 web browser and login to Planner to see all my tasks…

            • Please integrated MS Tasks (Planner) in Office 365 fully in Teams

              Please integrated MS Tasks (Planner) in Office 365 fully in Teams so I can reuse Plans in Teams and pin them to different teams.

              Currently I am only able to create new plans which is ok but not great

              • creating tasks in planner for teams by drag and drop from outlook

                It would be great to create a Task out of an E-Mail from Outlook.
                Drag a mail and drop it into the planner tab should create a new task.

                • Using an existing planner in Teams, comments are invisible

                  When adding a planner to a tab on a team channel in the Teams desktop app, any given planner task will not display the bottom section allowing you to make comments to a task. Neither will the task window show any existing comment history from tasks made from the web platform.

                  This is a huge problem to planning - that action history on a given task, is invisible.

                  • start a conversation about planner task

                    Start a conversation about a Planner Task

                    When you have a Planner Board setup within your team you can have a conversation about the whole board. But since this board is likely to contain dozens, if not hundreds, of Planner Tasks having a generic conversation on all of them is quite cumbersome. Within a Planner Task you can comment, but these are sent as emails to the group and are not showing up in he Channel Chat.

                    What would make Planner really work for us is when you can start a conversation in Teams about a Planner Task. just as…

                    • Scroll bars are very difficult to see in Planner window

                      I need to scroll horizontally in a Planner window. It took several days for me to finally see there is a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. Contrast needs to be better

                      • Planner: Daily tasks

                        A setting in Planner to assign a task or bucket to "daily" (weekly) that has to be checked off each day, but automatically "resets" each day. With a report or comment for tasks not checked off; would be useful.

                          With personal tabs I can customize my experience with Teams and add functionalities.

                          • Add existing Planner in different Teams and any channels

                            I already create Planner before using Teams.
                            So, now i have 2 share points and 2 planner and 1 team.
                            I want to add 1st planner in Teams (2nd planner).
                            Moreover, there is more than 1 channel in Team.

                            I want to add same planner in multiple channel too.

                            • Allow access to browse teams during a call

                              While on a call (especially during screen sharing) with a team member, allow us to browse a channel or connection, keeping the call on the side.

                              Use case:

                              While doing a call with screen sharing, wanted to check the planner tasks on a channel. During this time, i now have to switch between the call and the channel/planner task. Would be great if we can still keep the call/screen sharing on the side as active.

                                • Acknowledge Assigned Tasks

                                  Once a task is assined to someone, it would be useful to have an acknowledge process where he accepts the tasks.

                                  Tasks not accepted should be shown somewhere so that a manager can oversee if projects are moving or not and if team members are actually checking what was assigned to them.

                                    • Allow Planner tasks to be assigned & flagged "private"

                                      so that only assigner and assignee can see the task, even though the task "lives" in a Team Planner. One of my VPs would like to use Teams but has a need to assign Directors with tasks that his other Directors should not see. He's using Outlook tasks for now but he'd like to have it all in one place.

                                      • Individual Planner to combine all tasks from all teams into one calendar view

                                        Currently you can view calendar at team level but not at individual level.

                                        Would be great if you had calendar view of all your tasks assigned to you from every team (or selected teams) at individual level so that one can plan week / month properly.

                                        • Please, make it possible to move a Task from one Chanel to another Chanel, not only from one Bucket to another Bucket.

                                          For instance, we use a separate Chanel for Leads/Prospects, another Channel for (planning of) External Work, yet another for Internal Work.
