  1. Planner task permissions, read only, notifications

    Hi,

    we found. When a manager adds a task to a employee in Planner. Employee can edit and delete the task without informing the manager.
    For managers, the planner becomes unusable for watching task.

    It would be good if Planner supported assignment of a task with a read-only privilege or possibly show a history of changes and also notices of change to manager.

    Do you know better solution then planner?

  2. 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.

  4. Add percentage options to progress (IE: 25%, 50%, 75%)

    I would like to see a task status in more than not started / in progress / completed. Can we add percentage to the drop down?

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  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.

    Text (hyperlink support)

    Other Tasks (Link to other task for parent/children relationship)

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  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!

  14. Planner - Task - Comments

    Planner - Task - Comments

    Please dis-able below ability to delete Task Comments in Planner:

    When a Comment is added to any Task in Planner, notification is sent in Outlook under "Groups" to each member in the Group/Team.

    If any individual deletes one or all of these notifications in their Outlook, it ALSO DELETES THE COMMENT(S) ON THE APPLICABLE TASK(S) in the Team Planner.

    This causes many issues as you may imagine (though it is also a way to remove a comment...which some people have been asking for...but this removes comments unintentionally more often than not).

    If there is going…

  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.

  20. task within a task

    It would be great to be able to assign individual tasks within a task. For example, if you have a group of people who must perform tasks in order for another task to be completed, you should be able to assign different elements of the task checklist to different people. This would also be useful if multiple people need to execute on the same task list activities for a commonly assigned task. Having task list specific start dates, due dates and end dates would also be great. Come to think of it, a completion (end) date isn't shown at the…
