  1. Copy Planner Items

    I may have multiple buckets with similar items in them, and it would be easier to copy the items to another bucket, instead of copying text between them. Thanks.

  2. Planner: Filter by color

    As the colors in Planner are referred to different labs, it could be nice to have the possibility of filter by colors.

  3. Allow Planner tasks to be assigned & flagged "private"

    so that only assigner and assignee can see the task, even though the task "lives" in a Team Planner. One of my VPs would like to use Teams but has a need to assign Directors with tasks that his other Directors should not see. He's using Outlook tasks for now but he'd like to have it all in one place.

  4. Planner Custom Views & Reporting in Excel (Export)


    1. It would be beneficial if we could create custom view in Planner (Web or Teams app)

    2. We need the capability to export to Excel. this would be very useful for grabbing task one-liners to bring to a meeting for example

    Basically, many of the site Tasks features are missing.
    Thanks

  6. Planner: Daily tasks

    A setting in Planner to assign a task or bucket to "daily" (weekly) that has to be checked off each day, but automatically "resets" each day. With a report or comment for tasks not checked off; would be useful.

  7. Using an existing planner in Teams, comments are invisible

    When adding a planner to a tab on a team channel in the Teams desktop app, any given planner task will not display the bottom section allowing you to make comments to a task. Neither will the task window show any existing comment history from tasks made from the web platform.

    This is a huge problem to planning - that action history on a given task, is invisible.

  8. Planner in Private Channel Security - Planner members match the Members of the Private Channel

    I use Private Channels to restrict each private channel to the project Team. So I need the ability to create Planners in for a Private channel but only for the members of the Private Channel, a subset of the member in the General Channel.

  9. Planner Task Comments need notification updates

    When someone updates a task, it would be nice to see a badge show up so we know something changed on the task. I just had someone put a comment in a task but I got no notification.

  12. create planner task from email

    Ability to create planner task and/or Task comment from an email.
    have an email link on the planner or bucket.
    Also have an email link in a planner task.

    This will allow disconnected updates.

  14. Add personal tabs

    Allow us to have our tabs like my personal Site tab or Planner.
    With personal tabs I can customize my experience with Teams and add functionalities.

  15. Task Dependencies, Predecessors and Successors

    We are in the process of implementing TEAMS and PLANNER in my department, an exciting endeavor. Several people have made comments on the inability to link task dependencies in Planner, which I agree would make it better for Project and Operations planning. The ability to link tasks would be great, even if it doesn't feed into schedule tracking / analytics. That being said, I still wish to thank you and every member of your team for developing this WONDERFUL product!!

  17. Copy Planners as Templates into other Teams

    If I have the same/similar set of deliverables for multiple projects and I want to make a "Template" Planner that can be uploaded to multiple Teams without having to enter all the deliverables into a new Planner for every project. Can we make this happen?

  19. Assigning channels to a Team member

    It would be helpful to be able to assign channels to specific members of a team. We are unable to set up multiple teams and assign things that way, therefore we are using channels, but not every member of the team needs to be assigned to the channel.

  20. Teams planner/tasks

    When i click my initials, i'd like to see all of my planner tasks in one place - instead of having to go into each 'team' and 'channel' to review what tasks i have that are due/may be due at the same time as something else.
