  1. pasting a screenshot in a reply to a task in planner

    in the demo the example was to snip a screen where the user was having problems and replying to a task. there was no mention of being able to paste the screen shot. saving the screenshot as a file and then attaching is time consuming. can you just paste the screenshot in to the reply?

  3. copy the structure (buckets and lables) of a plan into a new plan

    Add the option of copying an existing plan when creating a new plan tab. Now you have the option of creating a new plan or using an existing one.

    It was not clear to me that when using the existing plan that it was simply creating another view on to that plan. I found out after i had deleted 15 important tasks (from what I thought was the copy) and now everyone is P.o'ed at me. (especially because of not being able to restore tasks)

    It would be useful to be able to copy a plan structure without necessarily copying…

  6. Planner board condensed list view

    When looking at the Planner Board, it would also be nice to see a condense list view to make for easy scanning of tasks

  7. For Planner/Task allow a task to be trigger to start by the completion of another task

    Similar to a Project task where you have successors and predecessors it would be good to be able to link tasks with dependencies.

  8. As a PLANNER in TEAMS user, I want to click & drop emails from OUTLOOK into my PLANNER cards without saving them inbetween

    If I want to add an email from Outlook as additional information to a task in PLANNER in TEAMS, I first need to save this email as file to my local drive and then I can attach it with the existing attachment function. For me it would be much more convenient if I could just click and drop the email from Outlook directly on the PLANNER task card and attach it this way automaticaly. This would help me document the inputs for the tasks which I receive by email.

  9. Allow checklist items to be assigned to different people as well as assign them different due dates.

    Our marketing team is beginning to use planner and it's difficult to keep projects moving forward because you cannot currently assign checklist items to specific people or give those checklist items a due date, one that differs from the due date of the task itself. Buckets are great but you cannot effectively work if you have dozens of tasks under one bucket, you need to keep it all in one place, under the same task.

  11. Option to change the lay-out (from moving the page across to top to bottom view) of the planner po

    If we add new buckets and it doesn't fit the screen, we have to scroll to the right. I'd be nice to have an option to scroll up or down to view them.

  12. Planner - bulk export, increase tab allowance, search filter by person

    Planner does about 95 percent of what I need to run my group and is pretty good but it's still missing crucial items. The final 5% exists but needs tweaking of already available tools.

    1 - I need to be able to sort planner tasks by person. Right now I can do by topic, label, due dates etc. But I cannot filter it by Joe Schmo to see how he is tracking on his tasks and what his outstanding items are.

    2 - Bulk export all planner tabs (or selected planner tabs). We can export a single tab into excel,…

  13. Increase max planner notes capacity

    Increase the amount of space allowed for entries in the Notes section of Planner. Currently the section wants to auto scroll back to the center after a certain number of entries, making it very difficult to add further notes.

  15. RBAC for Planner Tasks.

    Is this possible to have an RBAC based on the bucket, or assign a team at bucket level, or allow to modify the task only by the person who has been assigned for in this bucket? In case multiple people are assigned, only those including the creator should get access.

  16. Allow you to group by more than 1 field

    We have started to use planner and its pretty good except it would be great if you could group by more than 1 field. For example I would like to group by Label (which I use for more granular status) and then bucket (which I use for the project/epic). That way the kanban board view would show me columns for status but then group the tasks by bucket and you could expand or collapse with a twistie.

  17. Please reintroduce the edit/delete on posts or comments. Very bad idea to remove that

    Editing or deleting comments is a very essential feature or else the redundant posts or comments will increase till they are auto deleted.

  18. Personal view of planner - be able to add your own tasks, buckets and edit it

    Like you can with a planner within a channel, I love the fact it puts all of your channel tasks into place to view, but would be great to also be able to add personal tasks to this that are not in a channel planner and to change the buckets etc.

    Also to have a 'Team planner' that roles up everything from all of the channel planners within that Team.

  19. Can I request that there is a tab where all of your uncompleted assignments show in order of due date?

    I am a school student and for me, one of the most painful things to do is have to go through every subject to find every assignment and see when it is due. It would be very convenient if there was a tab that had all of your assignments in order from closest to the due date to furthest so prioritizing can be made easier.

  20. Give the option to send a notification when you assign a task/card to someone within Planner

    See post. I would really like the option to enable the sending of a notification when I assign a Planner card/task to someone, so they know it's in there.
