1. It would be beneficial if we could create custom view in Planner (Web or Teams app)
2. We need the capability to export to Excel. this would be very useful for grabbing task one-liners to bring to a meeting for example
Basically, many of the site Tasks features are missing.
When someone updates a task, it would be nice to see a badge show up so we know something changed on the task. I just had someone put a comment in a task but I got no notification.23 votes
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.
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.23 votes
I find a need for Teams Settings to have the additional notification settings for the following of Planner:
1. Tasks allocated to me
2. Updates (including comments and attachments) of Tasks Created by me
3. Updates (including comments and attachments) of Tasks allocated to me
The notifications settings should allow existing options:
1. Banner and email
3. Only show in feed
4. Off22 votes
Tasks the re-occur at certain intervals, Weekly, Monthly, Third Wednesday of the month - kind of thing.....22 votes
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.22 votes
If I'm primarily using Teams, and I have many tasks spread across multiple channels, the only way to see all my tasks is to go to Planner. That is the only reason to go to Planner. It would be much more efficient if I could see my Teams-assigned Planner tasks directly in Teams.22 votes
It should be possible to mass-create tasks in planner. When you manage ad-hoc team tasks on a daily basis- it's manageable.
But when you'd like to plan some work over a longer period of time and have a lot of tasks to assign- it's not suitable to do that one by one.
If you take SharePoint- it's possible to create a list of tasks by copying them from excel (task list can be edited in 'excel-like' mode). Something similar should be available in Teams to really take advantage of the planner functionality.21 votes
It would be nice to be able to see my calendar (and other calendars if selected) and drag tasks into my calendar with estimated completion time to plan out my month.
-Integrate Calendar with Planner
-Ability to filter based on task criteria or calendar
-Add estimated completion time to tasks
-Ability to visually plan by dragging task into holes in my calendar.21 votes
I would like to see a standalone desktop app for planner. Or give the same functionality of browser version if planner in teams desktop app as a standard left hand pane tab.20 votes
Allow Planner customization similar to Tasks on an SP site.
For example, we would like to have a Priority field that we can customize with our own priorities choices. another one would be a Person field "Requested By", or a hyperlink field, or customize the Progress field to add "Waiting for Someone Else".
You get my drift...20 votes
Be able to set specific dates to 'to do' items and/or priority levels and have some filtering options to more easily manage more complex plans/tasks20 votes
If I have the same/similar set of deliverables for multiple projects and I want to make a "Template" Planner that can be uploaded to multiple Teams without having to enter all the deliverables into a new Planner for every project. Can we make this happen?19 votes
Deleting a plan from teams with outstanding tasks in planner does not fully delete the tasks. Notifications for late tasks are still emailed. The option for delete plan and tasks was checked. These can be viewed in my tasks view from planner and they show up under former plan. I have since deleted those tasks which were assigned to me in planner, but I can't view other's tasks as the plan has been removed.19 votes
It would be great to be able to create "milestones" in Planner, where we can assign tasks as being part of certain milestones. We can sort of do this with the Checklist, but sometimes each checklist item deserves it's own discussion. We also have the tags, but I'm picturing something a bit more explicit, similar to Github issues/milestones (see image). By assigning tasks to milestones, you can see clearly that the milestone is "met" only when the tasks are done. Currently, we've been setting milestones by creating separate Plans. This might belong in the Planner forum, but my only exposure to it has been through Teams.

Right now it is only possible to make a mirror of an existing plan, meaning that buckets and tasks will appear in all these mirrors.
So, what we would like is to be able to create a template plan, that can copied into a new tab, and be used again and again for similar projects.19 votes

As of today, when several users have the same task, there is no mean to see who has completed the task and who hasn't.
Today, when one assigned user to that task select "completed", Planner considers that all the users have completed it and show the task as completed.
The task should not be shown as completed before ALL users have clicked on "completed". Individual progress should been shown in the task.18 votes
Make planner more as tasks in MS Project. Not as an replacement for Project, but create more details into subtask, scheduling and linking of tasks.18 votes
When I create a second Planner tab in Teams, it does not appear in Planner. But I can open the tab via the link in Teams. The data from the second tab also does not appear in the Planner Dashboard. I think it's a bug.18 votes
