  1. Planner Improvements needed

    My company is in the process of moving to Teams and having previously spearheaded a trial of Trello within a number of our stores i'm looking to the potential to switch all European stores (200+ stores 10'000's+ users) onto Teams as well as our global back of house team.

    There are a few issues standing in our way that I would like to discuss further with Microsoft before we commit that would be deal breakers to us moving and growing our platform. We are already avid Office users across our business and dealing with the roadbumps now would be the…

      I'm challenged with trying to utilize what O365 offers vs the third party our organization currently has.

      Our construction company(we run/build restaurants (110 and counting we operate)) is trying to replace Procore which is a more specialized version of Planner I'd suggest. So, maybe for the zero cost we could use Planner.

      My first impression is that it feels like Microsoft (clunky and incomplete). My hope is that they progress it as it's Soooo close, but yet so far from anybody getting excitment from it with all the standard clunky 1/2 baked Microsoft-ism's.

      So, my contribution as I don't know…

      • Add labels to Schedule view

        It would be great if you actually were able to see the labels on the tasks in Schedule view. The schedule view is the only view you can get a good overview of your planning. However, today it's not possible to see the labels on the tasks which makes it hard to get a grip(overview of your planning.

        • Filter out Certain Buckets

          Please enable the possibility to filter out certain buckets in the Buckets view. Not all buckets are relevant to me, and thus I don't want them occupying a lot of my screen space.

            • Existing Plans drop-down should include team and channel name

              When choosing to add an existing plan, I have several with the same name. When I click the drop-down, it would be better to show them hierarchically under their team and respective channel so I know which is which.

              • Planner Colour Scheme

                Hi,
                I've been using planner within Teams and my team have noticed that the display of tasks is very bland and all tasks look muddled up together. Is there a way to get a box around each one or even a shading that's not as discrete as it currently is. It would make it easier to view on a big screen if there was good separation.

                  • Planner Enhancements Required

                    I would love to see the following adaptations to the planner tab:

                    1) Enable more than 6 labels & allow users to choose their own colors.
                    2) Allow search option within the planner wherein we can easily search for text within a task name / task contents / comments within a task. This will really really help.
                    3) Allow users to manually enter the progress % for each task.
                    4) As the tasks approach their due date some automatic coloring of the tasks will be helpful (such as yellow - when the task is still quiet far from the target…

                      As a Teams user, I would like to enter comments and have them saved prior to clicking "Send" so that I do not lose what I've typed if I switch windows within Teams.

                        • Default Home Menu for Users (opposed to filtering)

                          Have your own custom home page in planner that shows everything on your board without having to filter on your name.

                              When you Add a task, you can't write description. Later you can write description, but you can't save the changes unless you update comments field. This is annoying. Enable save without having to add comments. Or else give an option to add description when adding a task.

                                      • Planner Tasks Disappeared

                                        All of a sudden I cannot view my planner tactics within Microsoft teams. The tab is still there but when I click to view, the thinking icon appears and then nothing. Any ideas?

                                          When you have a list of buckets and a list of tasks in each bucket, if you have some tasks assigned to someone mixed with some tasks that are unassigned, it is pretty hard to visually see which tasks are assigned or not, and seperate visually the tasks.
                                          It is hard to see if the title of the task belongs to the above or below line.
                                          A visual seperator would make life so much easier. Or add some kind of themes for the user to select.
