  1. Add "My Tasks" function for Planner tabs in Team, similar to how Planner works.

    If I'm primarily using Teams, and I have many tasks spread across multiple channels, the only way to see all my tasks is to go to Planner. That is the only reason to go to Planner. It would be much more efficient if I could see my Teams-assigned Planner tasks directly in Teams.

    • View all Tasks for the Team

      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…

      • archive planner buckets

        I don't know if this exists, but I have tried to find and cannot. It will be great if we can archive the buckets that we finished all the projects in those buckets. I do not want to delete it when it is done, I hope we can archive them and go back to see whenever we want.

        • onenote mention

          Implement the @mention feature inside OneNote

          Currently it's not possible to @mention people inside OneNote. Even though you've implemented templates for meeting minutes and action items for example. It would be much more easier to introduce the attendees with @mention or even better, to assign action items directly to people by @mention them.

          • Provide ability to create conversation around Planner Task in Teams

            Conversations can be created around documents in Teams but not Planner Tasks. Although the comments section provides some collaboration ability it is not the same as what can be done via conversations (@mentions, etc).

            • Ability to set personal default in Planner for 'group by' to view tasks

              I'd like to be able to have myself and my team set their personal viewing preference of tasks in Planner to "Group by" (e.g. Due Date) and have it default to this view every time you go in.

              • Teams planner/tasks

                When i click my initials, i'd like to see all of my planner tasks in one place - instead of having to go into each 'team' and 'channel' to review what tasks i have that are due/may be due at the same time as something else.

                  • Can we please have notifications for things like adding planner tasks that are assigned to a specific person?

                    Add a desktop alert or email or both for Tasks added in Planner or other apps that would require letting someone know they have something to do.

                    • Planner Notifications

                      I find a need for Teams Settings to have the additional notification settings for the following of Planner:
                      1. Tasks allocated to me
                      2. Updates (including comments and attachments) of Tasks Created by me
                      3. Updates (including comments and attachments) of Tasks allocated to me

                      The notifications settings should allow existing options:
                      1. Banner and email
                      2. Banner
                      3. Only show in feed
                      4. Off

                      • Improved functionality for Planner comments

                        Please add all the functionality of conversations to comments in Planner. I'd like to be able to @ someone to make sure they see a comment, edit or delete a comment, and I'd like to be able to change notifications (other than email) for Planner.

                        • 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.

                          • Second Planner Tab in Teams, does not show up in Planner

                            When I create a second Planner tab in Teams, it does not appear in Planner. But I can open the tab via the link in Teams. The data from the second tab also does not appear in the Planner Dashboard. I think it's a bug.

                            • Improve Planner

                              Give an option to show or not show on card people assigned to a task
                              When all items are not shown on card, reduce size of box giving complete task and options buttons in one line. Also add quick view buttons for certain sections next to these buttons - this should pop out the information but not change the view permanently.
                              Allow an option to visually distinguish items that I am assigned to, eg. icon/colour.

                                  • 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

                                    • Planner's management of buckets

                                      Need easier and quicker ways to manage the buckets by providing sort the list, manage the buckets via a list (move up/down), move more than one bucket at a time.

                                      in a team with more buckets than the width provides, it is hard to move a group of buckets from the end of the list to the beginning.

                                      • Planner checklist, description, Attachment

                                        It would be nice if we could see checklist, description and attachment details at the same time on the task card.
