Slider to adjust the size of the overview - view more tasks on one page (unleash the potential)
The maximum is reached with 10 tasks per bucket at a zoom-level of 100%. Not enough to manage business projects...
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.
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).
With this solution it is easy to see which project member has too many tasks.
The challenge is to make the writing recognizable at the same time.
For that some details could be hidden (e.g. calender symbol). Alternatively you can move the date, the assigned person as well as the edit button to the left so that there is more space for the task description.
An even simpler option is that only the font and the boxes shrink. But not the "teams" setting. This becomes more and more relevant when users switch between mobile work with a laptop and stationary work with large screens.
I have already tried Planner several times in projects. So far it has always failed because not all tasks were visible and the users could not see the whole picture.
I am convinced that Planner will become one of the most powerful planning tools because it has Outlook integration and the tasks can be assigned very easily.
Unless there is no possibility to adjust the level of details, planner will remain only a tool for small teams or tests.
Please unleash the potential of Planner to provide a valuable tool for all project managers worldwide.
Many thanks in advance.
