  1. Include options to move labels and tags based in priority

    Currently the position of labels and tags is fixed in planner. There is no option in planner to say, display the last 2 labels first. Say I want to use red for critical and yellow for important and these 2 labels are in different places. Need one option to display them together and also maybe to just display the labels/tags that I want and not others.

  2. Activity connection to Planner

    If someone assign me a new task in the planner, I don't see any update in the Activity section. Also if someone comments on my task, it doesn't show in the activity section.

  3. Move a chat message to Planner easily and view its status

    Teams has a nice ability to retrieve an email address of a particular channel. It can be used to make a channel for support or feedback, but with the functionality we already have, the message can be easily lost. My idea is to add the following function:
    -in a new message, there appears a button "Add to Planner" (for example, under three dots button or right next to it), after you do it, a task in Planner appears instantly or after filling a short form;
    -after a user adds a new task into a Planner this way, in this message…

  5. Inside a task, when manipulating the checklist the "Up Arrow" is misleading. It should say

    Inside a task, when manipulating the checklist the "Up Arrow" is misleading. It frequently confuses people who think it simply pushes that checklist entry up. the notion of promote is confusing. Perhaps it should say more. Create new task from item, might be more intuitive or maybe the Up Arrow is a less than optimal choice.

  6. unable to assign a former member

    When someone is removed from Teams Planner, they become a "Former Member". If a Former Member is already assigned a task you can't remove them from a task. As you remove them they automatically reappear onscreen.

  8. Bulk task creation in planner.

    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.

  10. Planner Filter search cross all fields, e.g. check list elements

    Planner Filter search cross all fields, e.g. check list elements

    The Filter/Search should search in all fields like for checklist elements.

  11. Tasks grouped in Planner tab need a more intuitive layout

    Viewing tasks in the Planner channel in Teams is not user friendly. New buckets are added horizontally, requiring awkward horizontal scrolling, which is not intuitive!

    Buckets should be arrayed and scaled (within reason) on the "Tasks" tab by default, with all buckets easily visible.

    Click "Add a tab" in Teams to see how tightly the available tabs are grouped together. Buckets need a display option similar to this, with a single-click action to open the bucket and display tasks inside.

  12. Sharing files on Teams Planner

    It's impossible to drag and drop a file on Teams planner or at least share a file, only possible on Microsoft 365.

  16. Planner tab should remember my Group by and Filter settings

    Every time I switch away from and back to the Planner tab (client app, not web), it resets to the default view with Filter (0) and Group by Bucket. I always have to apply Group by Process, and sometimes Filter by 'assigned to me', which is annoying. It would be nice if it remembered my last view settings.

  17. Transfer task between planner

    In some project I use different planner for channels so that each channel uses its own workflow.

    At some point I need to move a task to another plan.
    It would be great to be able to do that

  18. Default chennel filter for shared Teams planner

    Planner integration with teh ability to discuss it in Teams is a great idea.

    But it's frustrating that one needs to create as much planner as Channel if one don't want to mix task up.

    It would make sens to have one master planner for a Team, so we can follow the overall work, and being able to set default filter in channel so as to foxus on task linked to the channel.
    > it could easilty be a default filtering set in each channel
    > or the ability to link a task to specific channelS.

    up to you!

  20. In Planner, ensure different people with the same initials aren't recorded as the same colour code

    When two people working in Planner with the same first and surname initials are assigned a coloured profile circle (if a profile picture isn't uploaded), this circle appears the same colour.

    e.g. my leader and I both have the same initials (KL) and our profile circles are both the same colour (blue). This is confusing at high-level glance, as it makes us look like we're assigned to each other's work, and/or makes it look like we've been assigned a mass amount of tasks that we haven't.

    It would be easier if the colour of people's profile circles was allocated based…
