  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. creating tasks in planner for teams by drag and drop from outlook

    It would be great to create a Task out of an E-Mail from Outlook.
    Drag a mail and drop it into the planner tab should create a new task.

  6. 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. Return Board view to converged Planner Tasks in New Teams Task App

    In old version of Planner app in Teams, the default view was all my tasks were in a board view that converged all the cards from all the Plans into verticals that were based on progress. In the New Planner/Tasks app being rolled out this view is replaced with a list view with no option to change it to a board view. Please restore this option and allow users to choose their default view in the new Tasks app.

  9. Pin Planner tab to left panel in Teams

    Right now, you have to click a drop down to access Planner on the left panel, and there's a lot of space to add icons. Give the option to pin Planner there for easier access.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Slider to adjust the size of the overview - view more tasks on one page (unleash the potential)

    Summary:
    The maximum is reached with 10 tasks per bucket at a zoom-level of 100%. Not enough to manage business projects...

    Why:
    Complex projects of today cannot be managed with this small amount of tasks. However, there is a huge need for clever project management tools such as Planner.

    How:
    The easy handling of Planner should be continued. Therefore the solution should be a simple slider or a few view settings (e.g. standard, max x tasks, all tasks on one page).

    What:
    With this solution it is easy to see which project member has too many tasks.
    The challenge is…

  16. Unique ID for each Planner task

    In order to share or search a specific task please make a unique id available for copy from a task. Directing a user to a task Comment such as with saying "that task I sent you just now" isn't exactly optimal. I'll call it out now that folks will be using Planner as a ticketing system. I do.

  17. Improve Planner activities assigning by multiple members

    It will be amazing if you guys include multiple assignees in activities on Planner.
    It will also be a good improvement if you add the option of including external members for colaboration.

  18. 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.

  19. 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
