  1. Not user friendly

    Take notes from Monday.com. Their system is so customizable and user friendly, while also having an actual list graphic for an action item list. I am shocked that I can't export an actual list to excel, one a Microsoft program, while on Monday.com I am able to do so. Upgrade user interaction interface please!

  2. Add "waiting for" in planner when you are waiting for someone you can't assign the item to (eg - external)

    At present the progress is either not started, in progress or completed. Can we have one that says waiting on someone and/or deferred

  3. Copy the link to a conversation thread into Planner

    As a user of Ms-Teams and Planner, I want to refer in a planner task a Ms-eam conversation so that team members can follow the relevant conversation to the task in Ms-Teams.

    However, I'm facing an annoying limitation when using the copy link functionality.
    The link is not only included in the copy, but there is also a comment added after with the below format
    "Name-of-the-link posted in name-of-team / name of channel at date time"
    The problem is that if you want for instance to paste the link in a Planner task, it comes with an error message.

  4. I'd like to be able to assign subtasks to individual people. Right now I can label tasks, but not subtasks.

    I'd like to be able to assign subtasks to individual people. Right now I can label tasks, but not subtasks. It's super granular, I know.

  5. For Planner app in Teams app, add the "Bucket" of the task to the Task tiles in My Task view.

    For Planner app, add the "Bucket" of the task to the Task tiles in My Task view. You can currently see the "Bucket" name on the task tiles in the TEAMS Planner app, but cannot see that in the Planner app when looking at My Tasks.

  6. For Planner's iCalendar integration with Outlook, add the "Bucket" name to the calendar appointment details.

    For Planner's iCalendar integration with Outlook, it would be great if you could add the "Bucket" name to the calendar appointment details. It currently has "Progress" and "Checklist", but it would be great if it could also have the "Bucket" the task is in in the calendar appointment details.

  8. Better visual contrast in MS Planner

    The visibility in MS Planner is bad. The individual items are indistinguishable from the background. Text is thin and difficult to read.
    Other applications are perfectly fine, so it's not my settings.

  10. Assign Task to Not memeber without add them as Member

    Why assign a task to someone add that person to team? why Microsoft do no allow add task to people that are not part of the team, that person should be able to work with the task assigned to him but not add access to all the Team. It is like in Outlook you create a task and assign it to "Genaro" and automatically "Genaro" get access to all your mail to be able to work in that task.

    We need separate permission.

  12. User Interface

    it would be nice if there were a way to customize the navigation bar on the left - to maybe have shortcuts to other apps such as personal outlook to see personal tasks etc. and then something to get into other commonly used

  13. Individual Checklists in MS Planner

    I want several check lists (as much as I want) in MS Planner.
    And I want to name them as I want.

    At the moment there is only one fixed check list called "Checklist". That´s not enough.

  14. Multiple complete options should be available for a task

    When you assign a task to multiple people there are two cases:
    1. The task should be completed by someone(s) from the assigned poeple. ( The assigned people may share the task, then eventually someone conduct the final step to complete the task)


    1. The task should be done by all the peolple that are assigned to the task ( The task owner needs to make sure everyone should do the same task . for example.. Read team circular )

    But the planner seems to support the first case. I think many people will find it interesting if the case 2…

    In order to help us migrate from Trello to Planner/Teams, please could you add the option to vote for tasks in Planner.

  18. Task Dependencies

    It would be nice to be able to setup up dependencies. For example within a board be able to set a task that has to be completed before another task can be started. This would be even more helpful if when the frist task was completed the assigned personal on the next task where alerted so they could start their task. This isn't meant to compete with Shartpoint or Project Manager. I'm not trying to setup a Project as much as allow my Network team alert my ground team that the network is ready for the change over that they…

  19. This is really about Planner, but we want to use Planner in Teams exclusively so...can you provide a summary view for Planner Items s

    We'd like to have Planner items be compact like maybe 2 lines max and be able to float over them for more detail or to open them up. That way we just see the summary item in the various bucket/lists sections and they are easier to skim and scroll through. Make sense?
