  1. Allow access to browse teams during a call

    While on a call (especially during screen sharing) with a team member, allow us to browse a channel or connection, keeping the call on the side.

    Use case:

    While doing a call with screen sharing, wanted to check the planner tasks on a channel. During this time, i now have to switch between the call and the channel/planner task. Would be great if we can still keep the call/screen sharing on the side as active.

      • Please, make it possible to move a Task from one Chanel to another Chanel, not only from one Bucket to another Bucket.

        For instance, we use a separate Chanel for Leads/Prospects, another Channel for (planning of) External Work, yet another for Internal Work.

        • 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.

          • 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).

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        Allow ability to copy the full "Bucket" of tasks in MS Planner. Currently we can copy a task, but would love to be able to copy or duplicate a full bucket!

                        • To Do

                          Microsoft Teams should be integrated with Microsoft's To-Do (todo.microsoft.com) which should then in turn be brought into the calendar functionality.

                          • 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

                            • 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.

                                  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

                                  • Make it possible to copy an existing plan for a completely new project.

                                    Right now it is only possible to make a mirror of an existing plan, meaning that buckets and tasks will appear in all these mirrors.

                                    So, what we would like is to be able to create a template plan, that can copied into a new tab, and be used again and again for similar projects.

                                      • Show label colors on planner calendar

                                        The current planner calendar in teams does not show the task highlighted with the color of the label that it is assigned to. This only gives an all white calendar that is difficult to see items by type, priority, or if they are at risk. Example is attached.

                                        • 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.
