  1. Allow direct file attachment to Planner Tasks in TEAMS

    Provide ability to attach a document to a Planner Task from your Desktop (like you can do in a SP task).  Today, you have to upload the document into Teams first, then open your Planner Task and then attach by referencing the previously uploaded document.

    • Need full capabilities of Planner in Teams

      Right now you can add a new tab for Planner in Teams. However, you are not afforded all the capabilities of Planner in this tab. Its really "Planner Lite." Here are some items you cannot do with Planner in Teams:

      1) If you create a Planner in Teams, it will not be shown in Planner itself!
      2) you can go to the group (in web outlook) wich is automatically created for the team and click there on planner and it will take you to the planner for the new group, which then cannot be displayed at teams, but the team…

        partially done  ·  Suphatra responded

        Hi there, just letting you know what we are still working on request #5 which is the ability to get reminders for your Planner tasks in Teams.

        Everything else on this list is done, but if you have other Planner asks that you’d like to see address, please comment below with the URL for that feature requests (then I can merge all these UserVoice requests to this one master request). Then I’ll update the body of this request with all of the new feature requests related to Planner.

        Thanks,

      • Integrate tasks in planner with Outlook Tasks & Calendar

        Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
        It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.

        • Create Planner Task from a Teams conversation

          I would like to easily create a planner Task form a Teams conversation.
          e.g.: @Microsoft task: Enable Planner Task creation from a Teams conversation

          A Suggestion should help to set additional information e.g.: due date
          By default the bucket should match the channel

          • Assigning a non-member to a task in planner adds them to the Team

            If you assign a person a task in planner who isn't a member of the team, they automatically get added to the team. There is a message which says non-member but I don't think this is clear enough.

            There should be another warning/pop up telling the user that if they assign a task to someone not on the team they will get added to the team. This is a security concern!

              • Integrate fully with Planner, Sharepoint, and Outlook Tasks, Calendar

                Please integrate more with Planner (hopefully soon with Kanban and timeline visualisation channels for tasks) and/or with sharepoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place. And Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then in effect Teams is yet just another tool to use that is not completely integrated for communication + coordination.

                • Provide audit trail for Planner task edits

                  Changes can be made to the characteristics of a task, e.g., description or due date, without any audit trail. It would be extremely helpful to know which user made changes and when.

                  • Create task in planner from Outlook mail and calendar

                    We often get mail or have appointments we want to add to Planner, using Flow we can create a Flagged mail -> Planner. But I would like a option in mail and calendar to add specifik mails or appointments direktly in a planner.

                    1. Add a button in Outlook to create a task in any planner
                    2. Get a card up with Description, Content of Mail, Due Date and Assign To, be able to change everything before saving.
                    3. Ability to add attachments directly.

                    • Planner tab should remember my Group by and Filter settings

                      Every time I switch away from and back to the Planner tab (client app, not web), it resets to the default view with Filter (0) and Group by Bucket. I always have to apply Group by Process, and sometimes Filter by 'assigned to me', which is annoying. It would be nice if it remembered my last view settings.

                        • Planner view at Team level - not just a Planner per Channel

                          Finding it frustrating to have individual planners for each channel. I want to see all planner items for the complete team.
                          Please consider having a Team level planner and having a per channel filter on this; or a means of automatically aggregating channel level planners at the Team level.

                          • Task - several users progress

                            As of today, when several users have the same task, there is no mean to see who has completed the task and who hasn't.
                            Today, when one assigned user to that task select "completed", Planner considers that all the users have completed it and show the task as completed.
                            The task should not be shown as completed before ALL users have clicked on "completed". Individual progress should been shown in the task.

                              It is great to now be able to create multiple plans within a single Team, but now it is hard to manage all the tasks within that team.

                              Currently, one would have to go to each individual Channel's Planner tab to review each team member's workload. It would be nice to be able to view a team member's workload across all the different Channels/Plans, along with other aggregate data across the Team's different Plans.

                              Some examples of useful information when viewing aggregate data across all of a Team's Plans:
                              1. Workload of a Team Member across all of a Team's…

                              • 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!

                                  On the tech community I have seen requests from admins for users outside of a Team to View and Add Planner Tasks to a Planner inside of that Team as opposed to setting up a new team for users. This would be great functionality for team leaders, managers, and where several departments work together but don't need access to each others content.

                                    There should be an ability to make anything in Teams a follow up task (possibly link it to planner). If someone posts something, I want to be take that post and create a task with it for follow up. With this, similar to Outlook's summary page - I want a summary page in Teams, such as ALL current open tasks, new unread messages, etc.
