  1. Assign tasks to non-members of the Team

    It should be possible to assign a task to a non-member of the team. This shall NOT mean that the person the task is assigned to should be added to the Team, but should simply receive the task assignment and be able to read/modify the task element.
    With the current solution no confidentiality can be implemented within an organization, making the whole solution unusable for big companies, where a manger sees all the assigned activities and the employees only see the ones they are assigned.

  2. Allow 'Tasks assigned to me' to be filtered by colour labels

    when assigning tasks you may use colour labels to show which category/person the tasks includes or is assigned to (if tracking someone else's to do list)
    using the colour labels makes it easier to identify a particular individual included within the task.

    Having the colour labels within 'tasks assigned to me' and being able to filter based on the labels would be more beneficial than going into each separate team channel (especially if there are multiple with tasks)
    When tracking others to do list/tasks you may assign yourself to the task to keep a reminder - so having the colour…

  3. Tasks by Planner: show Channel name in any task-related view

    Because tasks and planners in different channels can have the same name, it can be confusing to look at lists of tasks across multiple channels because the channel name is not included in the task listsing. For example, when I look at tasks assigned to me across all channels. The channel name should be included in all such listings as well as when moving tasks from one plan to another in different channels.

  4. update task in planner list view

    It will be very useful to allow end-user to edit their tasks directly in the the list and not via the pop-up. We will save time !

  5. Allows to change/add column on planner tasks list

    it will be very useful if you allow end user to customise their task list view in planner. For example it will be useful to view the start date. thanks !

  6. Automatically convert ticked off checklist item to comment "logbook"

    I imagine a kind of logbook in the comments. When someone ticks of an item on the chacklist, planner should automatically create a comment like "John Doe ticked off item3 [Date, time]". That would add even more transparency to the progress of a task.

  7. TASK

    For the task planner we should be able to move task up and down by just dragging them and up. It's easier amd faster. I would also suggest whe a task has been commented it should light up or change color to help flag it. Send the comment notification to our emails don't work, most of I would say are trying to move away from emails because they're so inundated with emails

  8. Personal Boards within Planner

    We us the planner board all the time to help visually assign tasks and keep on top of projects.

    What is really missing is the ability to create a personal task board that you can manage your self.

    I'm sick of switching over to trello app to manage my own tasks when it could easily be built into the Tasks/Planner app tab.

    Currently Personal plans only allow you to view your tasks as a list where as shared plans can be viewed as a list OR a board.

    Can we please get the board feature added to personal plans

  10. Automatically (Once or twice per day) export 'Task by Planner' data to a pre-existing excel spreadsheet, not a new spreadsheet.

    I'd like to have the raw data from 'Task by Planner' exported automatically into a pre-existing excel spreadsheet.

  11. Share a Plan with Multiple Teams

    Allow a plan to be shared across Teams. For example, members of three separate Teams need to contribute to one overarching plan (think project steering team vs. project subteam). Instead of creating yet another Team for that one plan, we should be able to provide all three Teams access to that one plan. This would create shared visibility, but keep other aspects of the individual Teams secure.

  12. Task generation from other platforms

    would like the ability to create an action item in an excel sheet...@tag a person in that cell and a title and have it create a task in Teams. May have to mention the team and the title with specific identifiers, but this would be very helpful in project management and task tracking.

  13. Allow option to "tag" people for info on tasks in Planner

    It would be most helpful if we could have a way of tagging people on a task for their info, not necessarily to be "assigned" as lead. For example we'd like to "tag" our boss on certain tasks so she's aware of some of the more high profile activities and deadlines.

    Extra points if the person could be outside of the Team to which the Plan belongs.

    Also would be good if there could be levels of "assigned", to identify who is the lead on the activity.

  14. To Do Tasks for shared group inboxes

    To integrate To Do tasks listed in a shared inbox with Planner. Currently the To Do tasks in the personal inbox appear in the updated Tasks by Planner app but the tasks in the shared group inboxes aren't listed.

  15. Have color or tag feature for tasks

    Hello, I would like to ask for an upgrade for a 'nice to have' feature in tasks. At the moment you can give a title to task(I'm referring to simple tasks, not group one, but upgrade can be for both), add comments, due date and major checklist points, but you can not add tag or color so it would be easier to filter between completed items that refer for the same project(at the moment walkaround is to give some special or extra character in title to separate 2 or more task from the same project, but with time could lead…

  16. Benachrichtigung bei Kommentar in Planner

    Hallo, uns ist folgendes aufgefallen: Wenn ich ein Task im Planner erstelle, einer Person zuweise und kommentiere, erhält die Person keine Benachrichtigung über den Kommentar. Erst wenn die Person B ebenfalls kommentiert hat, bekommt sie zukünftig Benachrichtigungen über Kommentare in dem Task. Es wäre super hilfreich, wenn direkt ab Zuweisung Benachrichtigungen über Kommentare verschickt werden könnten. So bringt es leider sehr wenig. Vielen Dank! Freundliche Grüße

  17. Checklist needs to identify who completed the item.

    Currently the only tracking in Team task is who completes the task. In a large organization a task may be assigned to many people, yet they have individual pieces in the checklist. The checklist needs to be able to be assigned and it needs to know who completed the check listed item.

  19. Add ability to link individual task to a parent task.

    In the Planner App I want to be able to link on task to another task, similar to a parent and child scenario. This will allow me to keep track of the tasks that are link to a parent task and still keep the link between them.
