  1. We should be able to @message team members in the comments of a Planner task.

    It's important that we be able to mention someone in the comments of a Planner task. How else to have dialogue in the context of the task?

  3. Remove archived teams from planner view

    When using the Planner app within Teams, archived Teams are visible.

    It should either be a filter or a setting to "get rid" of archived Teams and their Planner activities.

  6. Follow up date!

    There is "start date" and "finish date" but no "follow up" date. This would be EXTREMELY helpful when creating your activity to see to indicate when this needs following up. There are many cases where i create a task then do something on it, like send a mail or do some work on a document and wait for someone to review or add something on it. This is where the follow up button would be really helpful as it reminds me that i need feedback or a responds from that person. it would go without saying that a new feture…

  7. Added search option

    Multiple search strings. For example i mark my activities with #1909 for the week they finish. We use the "Finish date" as a follow up date. (Have also added feed back regarding a "follow up" date button.).

    So i mark all my headings with a date #CW1909 or #1911 etc. I want to be able to but in multiple search strings in the filter so i can get all for example all #CW1919 and #CW1920 activities. At present this is not possible

  8. planner notification

    When updating comments on a Task in planner an e-mail notification is sent to all members of the Team. It should be possible configure the behaviour based on each Planner, to allow some of the following options:
    1. Disable all notifications;
    2. Notify Task owner ONLY;
    3. Notify all Team members (currently what happens).
    It would also be beneficial to be able to set these options based on activities, for example, creating new Task, modifying Task, assigning user, updating comments, changing priority, etc.

  10. Unable to recover a deleted item on a Task added in Planner and No security control

    Unable to recover a deleted item on a Task added in Planner and No security control I hope this an basic functionality would be given ... How Microsoft didn't have that features, at-least to be in a Trash folder and when this feature would be in corporate. Please add it as quick as possible

  11. Enable touch input for Planner tabs to simulate post-its on whiteboard

    When working within a Planner tab in MS Teams, it would be nice to enable touch input to be able to drag/drop tasks between buckets/columns, drag/drop names to tasks to assign, etc.

  12. Linked Documents to tasks

    I've noticed whenever I link a document to a task, clicking on the link only allows you to open the document on Word online. For documents that have images or text boxes, word online distorts these images unlike in the desktop app.

    There should be an option, like in the files tab in teams, to open the document in the desktop app or on the online platform.

  13. Allow longer checklists with Planner (current maximum is 20 items)

    Current Planner checklists allow up to 20 items per checklist. I often need to list more than 20 items and then track their completion, but it's not possible with this tool. I am trying to migrate from Trello to this tool, but this is a downside when comparing the two.

  14. Planner Assignment filter should only show people with assigned tasks in the plan

    If you're working in a team with a lot of people, but a specific plan has tasks only assigned to a few people, the Filter functionality should only show people who have tasks assigned in that planner.

    Right now filtering by person on a planner attached to a large team is more cumbersome than it needs to be.

  15. Fill bars in Planner timeline with colours

    We started to use Mircrosoft Teams Planner as a PMO tool for diffrent projects and people included in one channel. Therefore, the timeline view for this channel, showing all tasks and deadlines in a calender is very crowded.

    The possibility of filling the single bars in the timeline view with colours would be terrific. This ensures that the single projects can be identified at a glance more easily without filtering first.

    Simple function but very effective in case you work in big teams.

    THANKS!

  17. copy a planner & printing it

    Hi, my name is Monica, I work at Ltapparel/ we have a 3 season calendar spring/fall and school. I would like to know how can I copy a planner that I set up for Spring 2020 onto Fall 2020 and School 2020? All task/events are the same - the only changes would be the start and end dates, there are over 100 lines & I would appreciate having a copy function rather then retyping it all again twice. I've attach a screenshot of how my planner looks - which by the way I would also like to know how to…

  18. bug


    1. Add a To-do connector(Planner) in a channel with a default plan(A)


    2. Create another plan(B) in planner


    3. Change To-do list to the other plan(B)


    4. Remove to-do connector


    5. Add a To-do connector(Planner) in a channel and set the plan to an existing one(A)-> The issue at this point it's not possible to choose the existing plan, only to create a new plan


    Notes: It's somehow possible to use an existing plan(A) in a new channel.

  20. Allow filter by label type in the 'My Tasks' view

    Hi,

    Is it possible to duplicate the filter options that are available in a planner tab for use in the "My Tasks" tab. Currently I can only filter by date on the "My Tasks" tab. I'm using Planner via teams, but have also tested this with the same result in the Planner browser version.

    Thanks very much
