  1. Primary vs Secondary Assignees

    There should be a way to mark someone on the planner card as the primary assignee and others as secondary assignees or contributors.

  2. As a manager/owner I wish I could see the overall tasks a member has for all plans and teams.

    I wish there was an overall view of how many tasks each member has throughout all the different teams and plans. This way I can see if an employee needs more to do. It is difficult to get a sense on workload with how broken up our plans are.

  3. Planner delegated access

    In the same way as I have access to the senior manager's calendar to help coordinate - it would be very useful to have delegate access to their tasks (planner) too.

    They are extremely busy and it helps for their team to nudge or manage the tasks on their behalf.

  4. allow an entire bucket to be assigned to a person in the planner, instead of having to assign each task.

    we use buckets for individuals in the planner, we would like to be able to assign a entire bucket worth of task to 1 or more people , instead of having to assign each task , to minimize the number of emails and notifications 1 person would get, instead of 54 emails he could recieve 1 email notifying him that he has tasks to complete.

  5. When two or more channels in Teams share a plan, add the name of the channel to each task in board view.

    In the "Board" view in Tasks by Planner and To Do, users can use the buckets to create custom Kanban boards. However, if more than one channel share the plan, the only way to distinguish which tasks belong to each channel is to manually enter the channel name in the title of the task. If the name of the channel could be programmed to appear with the task in "Board" view, it will increase the utility of using Planner in Teams because teams that have multiple channels could work from a single custom Kanban board.

    My proposal is similar to…

  6. Share Planner/Tasks across multiple Teams

    When using MS Teams, there are times you have a team using planner/tasks and the completion of said items as well as progress would be helpful to share to other teams -- Example: Regional Team, State Level Team and a Core Task Team have separate teams and channels... the Task Team creates a plan that impacts the State and Regional level teams, to share the plan and progress across all teams would be beneficial

  7. Notification for comments

    When somebody comments on a task, the task should have an indicator that shows new content. Same for any changes that are made. The general "pop-up" that indicates changes have been made on 3 tasks does not help anything when you have more than 3 tasks in your planner.

  12. Ability to have planner list editable in spreadsheet format

    Include ability to show other columns of the task (Configurable)
    - For example adding the notes field to the list and edit the notes field from the list view
    - Ability to update all fields from the list view without having to open the task.

  13. Break the 'Planned' list into sections

    I use the Microsoft ToDo app rather than the list in Teams because the 'Planned' section - which shows all upcoming tasks - is broken into sections, like Today, Tomorrow, The next few days, and Later: thereby allowing a quick focus on those tasks that need to be completed soon.

  14. Tasks - Sort by start date

    We are wanting to be able to sort tasks that come in from our Outlook to be able to sort by other means than just priority or due date. Some tasks do not have a due date and just become a To-do and would like to see them in order from oldest to newest (or vice-versa).

  15. Make a Gantt view available in Planner

    I think MS Teams is missing a trick by not allowing Gantt view in Planner. If this functionality was added, it would certainly make Monday.com, Asana and the like, a run for its money! A simple Gantt view is available in the paid services for most project management software and as Teams is a paid-for app, it should be included. I realise that MS Project has Gantt view, but this is great for large complex projects, but simple projects don't warrant all the features of MS Project and would be a great addition to the Planner app. Please consider adding…

  17. Private Channel Tasks App

    My department has a single large team broken down by each individual working unit having their own private channel which they work in on a day to day basis.

    We are unable to have tasks added to each individual private channel which is stopping each team from being able to work on their own tasks in their own channels.

    Can you please add the ability to have tasks functionality added to private channels.

  20. (Planner or Tasks) Add Bucket Column in the "My Tasks / Assigned To Me" List View

    In Tasks and To-Do (aka Planner), the ability to add Bucket column so as to provide better context. For example, right now you can only see "Source" as a column, but not the "Bucket" within each of those plans.

    This makes it very difficult for a user to figure out exactly what work is being done against which bucket - especially if you are a member of a large number of plans.
