  1. Provide ability to create swimlanes, or exception workflows

    Custom kanban board design functionality such as what LeanKit provides allow board designers to create horizontal and vertical splits within columns to allow for more complex workflows. An example would be a horizontal swimlane for work that needs to be expedited.

  3. Owner & Member Roles and permissions

    Both owner and members can change all the actions. If requires validation before closing the action by the team. And Action was closed. Only way to see the action closed is to go closed actions and check. Can we add a permisson group ?

  4. I want to be able to decide for myself what grouping is the startpage within planner

    It always starts with 'buckets'. But I want my basic look to be 'voortang' (progress).

  5. Individual Planner to combine all tasks from all teams into one calendar view

    Currently you can view calendar at team level but not at individual level.

    Would be great if you had calendar view of all your tasks assigned to you from every team (or selected teams) at individual level so that one can plan week / month properly.

  6. Create milestones in Planner

    It would be great to be able to create "milestones" in Planner, where we can assign tasks as being part of certain milestones. We can sort of do this with the Checklist, but sometimes each checklist item deserves it's own discussion. We also have the tags, but I'm picturing something a bit more explicit, similar to Github issues/milestones (see image). By assigning tasks to milestones, you can see clearly that the milestone is "met" only when the tasks are done. Currently, we've been setting milestones by creating separate Plans. This might belong in the Planner forum, but my only exposure…

  8. scrollbar

    The scrollbar is really hard to see - especially on wide views like Planner. In a way I could see where you were going in making it less obtrusive, but it becomes harder to find.

  11. Make Planner App more visible

    We have a lot of none IT-people in the back-office.
    I must show them frequently where the planer app is (an their tasks) because its so hidden in teams.
    (Click the three tiny dots, click on teams).


    • I wish i could modify teams so that Planner is a main button the the side menu

    • I wish i could set the app any as default start page, company wide, so they see every-morning their tasks.

    • i wish teams would cache things. I can`t stand this endless loading indicators while switching between pages

  12. new planner action pop-up

    Add the possibility to create a action in planner without leaving the current page. For exemple, you are discussing a power BI report, and you decide to take an action, it would be great to be able to click "new action" that opens a pop-up to just create the action without leaving the report/tab you're currently looking at.

  13. start a conversation about planner task

    Start a conversation about a Planner Task

    When you have a Planner Board setup within your team you can have a conversation about the whole board. But since this board is likely to contain dozens, if not hundreds, of Planner Tasks having a generic conversation on all of them is quite cumbersome. Within a Planner Task you can comment, but these are sent as emails to the group and are not showing up in he Channel Chat.

    What would make Planner really work for us is when you can start a conversation in Teams about a Planner Task. just as…

  16. Remind employee of existing task from Planner in Teams

    It would be great if an Admin of a Team can remind users of a task. For example, if I am a manager, I might want to remind an employee of a task, so I should be able to select a button that will let me remind the user, and/or update them if I make any changes to the task.

    This would be truly effective in order to ensure you can remind/update employees if necessary.

  19. Improved functionality for Planner comments

    Please add all the functionality of conversations to comments in Planner. I'd like to be able to @ someone to make sure they see a comment, edit or delete a comment, and I'd like to be able to change notifications (other than email) for Planner.
