  1. Activity feed / Rights system for Planner

    The ability to limit access to planner tasks e.g. only the creator of a task can delete it. Right now anyone in the team just could (accidently) delete a task without anyone know about it. Also, a "activity feed" in the main Chat would be nice, so users know when someone comments on their tasks or creating a new task with you as the responsible person. Right now you have to look at the planner what your tasks are without any notification.

  3. Existing Plans drop-down should include team and channel name

    When choosing to add an existing plan, I have several with the same name. When I click the drop-down, it would be better to show them hierarchically under their team and respective channel so I know which is which.

  4. Planner Colour Scheme

    Hi,
    I've been using planner within Teams and my team have noticed that the display of tasks is very bland and all tasks look muddled up together. Is there a way to get a box around each one or even a shading that's not as discrete as it currently is. It would make it easier to view on a big screen if there was good separation.

  5. Add List view of Tasks in Planner

    Add a "view" under Teams that is similar to an action registry in excel where task are row by row to be able to quickly scan task, due date, status/Comment, and label. it would is too much scrolling on the chart and board view when you in an update meeting

  8. Prevent Planner from showing in Outlook Global Address List

    Is there any way to prevent Planners from showing up in the Global Address List in Outlook?

    We are creating planners for lots of projects but they all show up automatically in the GAL. The thing is people are emailing those plans accidently or randomly depending on the plan. I know we can manually turn it off, but for each plan we create its going to be a headache. not to mention we will probably forget. we'd just like to prevent the planner from showing up in the GAL (by default).

  9. Putting tasks on pause/on hold/ or a priority

    Would be great to be able to put tasks on pause or hold if another task in the planner becomes a priority and for the priority tasks make them stand out.

  11. Planner Enhancements Required

    I would love to see the following adaptations to the planner tab:

    1) Enable more than 6 labels & allow users to choose their own colors.
    2) Allow search option within the planner wherein we can easily search for text within a task name / task contents / comments within a task. This will really really help.
    3) Allow users to manually enter the progress % for each task.
    4) As the tasks approach their due date some automatic coloring of the tasks will be helpful (such as yellow - when the task is still quiet far from the target…

  12. Allow for saving of Comments prior clicking "Send"

    As a Teams user, I would like to enter comments and have them saved prior to clicking "Send" so that I do not lose what I've typed if I switch windows within Teams.

  14. Default Home Menu for Users (opposed to filtering)

    Have your own custom home page in planner that shows everything on your board without having to filter on your name.

  16. In the planner, in the chart view, make each column filterable seperately. Like you can do with columns in excel.

    the columns in the chart view of the planner would be much easier to use if they could be sorted/filtered by a single column. Currently, only all columns at once can be filtered.

  17. Assigning tasks for the group but seperate check

    Not possible to assign one task to all the people in such a way that everyone has to tick as completed (counting people who completed task 2/6, 3/6…). Even if task is not assigned to me, I am able to close it - risky. Checklist option and manual typing names does not convince me.

  19. Pin Planner tab to left panel in Teams

    Right now, you have to click a drop down to access Planner on the left panel, and there's a lot of space to add icons. Give the option to pin Planner there for easier access.
