  1. Create milestones in Planner

    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…

  3. Create tasklists with subtasks. Link task together

    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.

  4. Ability to print Planner tabs in Teams

    The ability to print/export the full details of a Planner tab is very needed. it makes it difficult to flow with others when the only access to the tab is live in the app.

  7. Increase number of Planner categories

    Right now there is a very limited number of categories that can be set for tasks. I'd love to have the ability to increase this number, as six is not nuanced enough.

  8. Improve Planner

    Give an option to show or not show on card people assigned to a task
    When all items are not shown on card, reduce size of box giving complete task and options buttons in one line. Also add quick view buttons for certain sections next to these buttons - this should pop out the information but not change the view permanently.
    Allow an option to visually distinguish items that I am assigned to, eg. icon/colour.

  11. Unique ID for each Planner task

    In order to share or search a specific task please make a unique id available for copy from a task. Directing a user to a task Comment such as with saying "that task I sent you just now" isn't exactly optimal. I'll call it out now that folks will be using Planner as a ticketing system. I do.

  13. Planner item description

    It would be nice if the planner item description had some formatting options. I use this to add details with headers/bullet points/strikethrough etc. Thanks!

  15. Individual Planner Report / Extract

    Should be able to either give others access to individual planner or at least the ability to generate an export report of individual planners (that reflects tasks across all teams assigned to that person) so that a manager/team leader can view in order to manage the individuals workload.

  17. scrollbar

    The scrollbar is really hard to see - especially on wide views like Planner. In a way I could see where you were going in making it less obtrusive, but it becomes harder to find.

  18. Planner notify you when a task is done

    I don't get a notification when someone completes a task in planner that I've assigned. Means I have to manually check.

  19. Checklist template or duplicate from one card to the other

    It would be nice to be able to create checklist templates or duplicate check list to one card to the other one in Planner.

    As a common workflow, most task might have the same checklist from one task to the other and it is time consuming to recreate check list for each card on a board
