  1. Automatically update SP links in Planner cards

    We use links to SharePoint files on our planner cards, however, we are finding if we updated the file (and a new SharePoint version number is created), the link breaks. Can this be fixed so that the link doesn't break when someone edits I file that has been linked to a planner card?

  3. Multiple due dates on Planner cards

    I use Planner as a resourcing tool for a design/production studio. My projects have multiple start and due dates (draft, revisions, final) so it'd be great to attach multiple start and due dates to a single card. That way when I'm in Schedule view I can see the full timeline for that card.

  4. Customization for Priority Buckets

    We would like to customize priority buckets. Right now, you have to go with the default settings. Being able to adjust these would be awesome and would allow us to cross-reference with our other systems.

  5. Edit multiple tasks in Planner

    With multiple tasks in the planner it would be helpful to be able to select multiple tasks and edit fields (e.g. due date) on them simultaneously.

  7. Sub Catagory in Teams

    We are using Team to manage our client and internal interface for projects. Our need is for a sub channel with all of the features of the channel to achieve the proper high achy for access management and site continuity. The Team/Channel is preventing us from successfully deploying an organized solution.

  8. PDCA in Progress Status

    Following the PDCA structure when performing a task, my suggestion is to classify the progress status as:
    - To be Planned
    - Plan
    - Do
    - Check
    - Act

  12. Bucket views colours

    Change colours and backgrounds to customise views | We need to be able to colour code the whole bucket, not just labels. The bucket is great for quick reference but not being able to customise colours really limits its usefulness. Please allow each bucket to individually be colour coded for easy reference.

  13. Change back the label color

    After the recent update, the colors of labels don't match the colors at the top when you sort the tasks by labels. These colors are by no means as easily distinguishable as the previous ones.

  15. Ability to Create Templates in Planner

    Ability to create and copy independent plan templates in additional channels / teams without it being tied back to the original plan. Right now we have to copy the tasks to make this function work, would be much easier and faster to be able to copy a plan. Due to this issue, we have had to make our plans just a few tasks and build out the checklists within the task, but in doing that, we lose some of the plan visibility and reporting.

  17. Please allow buckets window to show all buckets, and change colours of background and tasks.

    The task,, background and buckets colors cannot be altered by the user, Ideally using themes, digital fabrics, colors, contrasts and brightness : particular for dyslexic users who have to view this all day every day.

  19. Greater chart functionality

  20. Tasks in schedule should be visually recognizable for belonging to specific labels/buckets.

    Tasks in the schedule look all the same. At least they should be somewhat colored depending on their labels.
    In my opinion it would be great to easily tell which bucket every task belongs.
    The right column seems pointless, I expect to filter tasks selecting buckets/labels/progress, but it doesn't work this way, I think I'm missing the point of using it.
