  1. Office 365 Planner Link

    It would be nice to be able to click on a button that takes you to the overall view for an individual for assigned tasks. As it is now designed I have added a Planner Tab to one of my projects, but I can only see tasks related to that project. This is good, but it would be even better if I could easily switch to the multi-team view of all my Planner tasks across all teams. To do this now I need to open a separate office 365 web browser and login to Planner to see all my tasks…

  2. Make Planner available for private channel

    Planner is currently unavailable for private channels in Teams, which is creating a lot of buzz.

  3. Provide ability to create conversation around Planner Task in Teams

    Conversations can be created around documents in Teams but not Planner Tasks. Although the comments section provides some collaboration ability it is not the same as what can be done via conversations (@mentions, etc).

  4. Custom Planner Fields

    Allow Planner customization similar to Tasks on an SP site.
    For example, we would like to have a Priority field that we can customize with our own priorities choices. another one would be a Person field "Requested By", or a hyperlink field, or customize the Progress field to add "Waiting for Someone Else".
    You get my drift...

  5. 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.

  6. Planner Notifications

    I find a need for Teams Settings to have the additional notification settings for the following of Planner:
    1. Tasks allocated to me
    2. Updates (including comments and attachments) of Tasks Created by me
    3. Updates (including comments and attachments) of Tasks allocated to me

    The notifications settings should allow existing options:
    1. Banner and email
    2. Banner
    3. Only show in feed
    4. Off

  7. 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. Integrate Planner with Calendars and Meetings

    It would be nice to be able to see my calendar (and other calendars if selected) and drag tasks into my calendar with estimated completion time to plan out my month.

    -Integrate Calendar with Planner
    -Ability to filter based on task criteria or calendar
    -Add estimated completion time to tasks
    -Ability to visually plan by dragging task into holes in my calendar.

  10. Allow access to browse teams during a call

    While on a call (especially during screen sharing) with a team member, allow us to browse a channel or connection, keeping the call on the side.

    Use case:

    While doing a call with screen sharing, wanted to check the planner tasks on a channel. During this time, i now have to switch between the call and the channel/planner task. Would be great if we can still keep the call/screen sharing on the side as active.

  11. Assign people to specific sub tasks

    At the moment it's only possible to assign users for the overall tasks.

    Can you make it possible to assign people to specific tasks on the checklist?

    Currently, you have to create multiple cards to assign these tasks to individuals (which increases the amount of cards on display); if you could instead assign people to subtasks, then this would greatly simplify the overall planner view. For bonus points, having the ability to specify due dates for subtasks would be great!

  12. 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?

  13. Deleting planner tab, tasks and especially notifications should be deleted

    Deleting a plan from teams with outstanding tasks in planner does not fully delete the tasks. Notifications for late tasks are still emailed. The option for delete plan and tasks was checked. These can be viewed in my tasks view from planner and they show up under former plan. I have since deleted those tasks which were assigned to me in planner, but I can't view other's tasks as the plan has been removed.

  14. Bulk task creation in planner.

    It should be possible to mass-create tasks in planner. When you manage ad-hoc team tasks on a daily basis- it's manageable.
    But when you'd like to plan some work over a longer period of time and have a lot of tasks to assign- it's not suitable to do that one by one.
    If you take SharePoint- it's possible to create a list of tasks by copying them from excel (task list can be edited in 'excel-like' mode). Something similar should be available in Teams to really take advantage of the planner functionality.

  15. Create tasklists with subtasks. Link task together

    Make planner more as tasks in MS Project. Not as an replacement for Project, but create more details into subtask, scheduling and linking of tasks.

  17. Please, make it possible to move a Task from one Chanel to another Chanel, not only from one Bucket to another Bucket.

    For instance, we use a separate Chanel for Leads/Prospects, another Channel for (planning of) External Work, yet another for Internal Work.

  18. Add "My Tasks" function for Planner tabs in Team, similar to how Planner works.

    If I'm primarily using Teams, and I have many tasks spread across multiple channels, the only way to see all my tasks is to go to Planner. That is the only reason to go to Planner. It would be much more efficient if I could see my Teams-assigned Planner tasks directly in Teams.

  19. Second Planner Tab in Teams, does not show up in Planner

    When I create a second Planner tab in Teams, it does not appear in Planner. But I can open the tab via the link in Teams. The data from the second tab also does not appear in the Planner Dashboard. I think it's a bug.

  20. Planner

    Be able to set specific dates to 'to do' items and/or priority levels and have some filtering options to more easily manage more complex plans/tasks
