  1. Assigning channels to a Team member

    It would be helpful to be able to assign channels to specific members of a team. We are unable to set up multiple teams and assign things that way, therefore we are using channels, but not every member of the team needs to be assigned to the channel.

  3. 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.

  5. Provide ability to create conversation around Planner Task in Teams

    Conversations can be created around documents in Teams but not Planner Tasks. Although the comments section provides some collaboration ability it is not the same as what can be done via conversations (@mentions, etc).

  7. Add a repeating task option for planner in teams.

    It is easy to add a task and assign to members of a team with the planner plugin but I don't see any way to make that task a recurring task such as a recurring meeting in outlook.

  9. Task - several users progress

    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.

  10. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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!

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Right click a message in Chat and select a context menu to create a task in planner

    In chat, I wish you could right click a message and see more options in the context menu. One of those options should be, create task in planner. This would effectively take that chat post and copy it into a planner task.

  19. Make it possible to copy an existing plan for a completely new project.

    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.

  20. Planner's management of buckets

    Need easier and quicker ways to manage the buckets by providing sort the list, manage the buckets via a list (move up/down), move more than one bucket at a time.

    in a team with more buckets than the width provides, it is hard to move a group of buckets from the end of the list to the beginning.
