  2. Manager View / View All Team Tasks

    Currently, when I open Planner within the Teams desktop app, I only have the option to see my tasks. I have direct reports whose tasks I need to monitor. So I need to open the Planner web app separately, just so I can see unassigned tasks within plans that aren't mine or to see tasks assigned to other people. That's kind of a silly oversight.

  3. Can't paste characters into Planner Comment

    Can't paste some characters into Planner Comments. For example pasting this doesn't work: blah blah blah <blah> blah blah

  4. improve charts within Planner.

    it would be nice to have charts and analytics to display which task assignee has performed better and worse, and for them to be interactive similarly to the Power BI ones. would be a good starting point e.g clicking on the status chart, on the "completed" segment, and having the Members chart changing accordingly. show how many tasks someone has completed.

  5. Independently task progress.

    It would be great if multiple persons a task is assigned to could independently indicate progress.

  7. Handle not Team Related tasks

    The Planner should also handle own Tasks which not related to a team.

  8. Assign or categorise multiple tasks in one action

    Make it easy to mass assign (or label) tasks in a single action. If I have 100 tasks and all need to be assigned to one person who will then re-distribute them, and 50 should be under a single label such as 'Red' or 'Sprint 1' and the other 50 as another e.g. 'Amber' or 'Sprint 2', currently all of them need to be indivually updated manually.

  9. charts - Member Bar Chart

    The Member Bar Chart is filled with 'Members' who are not assigned tasks. This extends axis so much the Bar Chart is useless.

  10. Planner - Allow percentages of each task to be given to different people which they sign off on when complete.

    Assign percentage of task to different members

    I know that you can assign one task to different members, but it would be great if, each member could be given a percentage of that task and then allowed to hit complete once they have completed their portion of the task.

  11. Planner

    There should be a way to add Planner to your main Hub on the left hand side instead of just having it as a Tab under a specific Team.

  13. Can MS Planner be used track project hours…

    So I’m a 365 user now, deep in Teams and have questions, one specifically in mind to ask.

    Can MS Planner be used track project hours. I’m looking for a way to get information on assigned + completed tasks to help me compare a projects estimated cost against actual time spent.

  15. Option to set priority

    Having recently added all my tasks to planner I realised there were some tasks that despite having a due date, I wanted to obviously mark as high priority.

    Can we make this an option

  16. View all Tasks for the Team

    It is great to now be able to create multiple plans within a single Team, but now it is hard to manage all the tasks within that team.

    Currently, one would have to go to each individual Channel's Planner tab to review each team member's workload. It would be nice to be able to view a team member's workload across all the different Channels/Plans, along with other aggregate data across the Team's different Plans.

    Some examples of useful information when viewing aggregate data across all of a Team's Plans:
    1. Workload of a Team Member across all of a Team's…

  17. Template or Copying ability with Planner

    I would like to create a template of tasks that can be used for multiple projects or have the ability to copy multiple tasks at once.

  18. Adding stakeholders outside of a team JUST to specific projects/tasks

    I want to add people within the company (but not within my team) to specific tasks/projects for transparency, but when I add them, they also get added to the entire team, thus seeing all the projects I have. Is there a way to do what I've described? If not, it would a great addition.

  19. Flexibility re layout and info displayed on card and size of card

    I have a lot of projects I have to keep track of. It would be helpful to me to view more cards on my screen and for me to control the level of detail that is displayed.
    For example: colour entire card; zoom out to view more cards together on screen or change the size of the cards and fonts

  20. Allow copying cards between Planners

    It would be helpful to allow copying of cards between Planners. This way I can have a Template Planner which is a library of cards I frequently use with predefined settings and lists. And when I need to add a new card that exists in the Template, I can just copy from and adjust.
