  1. Acknowledge Assigned Tasks

    Once a task is assined to someone, it would be useful to have an acknowledge process where he accepts the tasks.

    Tasks not accepted should be shown somewhere so that a manager can oversee if projects are moving or not and if team members are actually checking what was assigned to them.

  2. Bulk task creation in planner.

    It should be possible to mass-create tasks in planner. When you manage ad-hoc team tasks on a daily basis- it's manageable.
    But when you'd like to plan some work over a longer period of time and have a lot of tasks to assign- it's not suitable to do that one by one.
    If you take SharePoint- it's possible to create a list of tasks by copying them from excel (task list can be edited in 'excel-like' mode). Something similar should be available in Teams to really take advantage of the planner functionality.

  3. Scroll bars are very difficult to see in Planner window

    I need to scroll horizontally in a Planner window. It took several days for me to finally see there is a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. Contrast needs to be better

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. Sorting in Planner

    I would like to be able to sort planner items outside of their buckets in Teams by various criteria (tab color, etc.). Different sort/view options should be available

  7. Checklist items in Planner need due dates

    Checklist items in Planner need due dates. Currently, we can only assign due dates to the whole task but there are many tasks within that need due dates or else it gets lost.

  8. Planner notify you when a task is done

    I don't get a notification when someone completes a task in planner that I've assigned. Means I have to manually check.

  11. Planner in Private Channel Security - Planner members match the Members of the Private Channel

    I use Private Channels to restrict each private channel to the project Team. So I need the ability to create Planners in for a Private channel but only for the members of the Private Channel, a subset of the member in the General Channel.

  12. 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…

  13. Task Dependencies, Predecessors and Successors

    We are in the process of implementing TEAMS and PLANNER in my department, an exciting endeavor. Several people have made comments on the inability to link task dependencies in Planner, which I agree would make it better for Project and Operations planning. The ability to link tasks would be great, even if it doesn't feed into schedule tracking / analytics. That being said, I still wish to thank you and every member of your team for developing this WONDERFUL product!!

  14. Custom Planner Fields

    Allow Planner customization similar to Tasks on an SP site.
    For example, we would like to have a Priority field that we can customize with our own priorities choices. another one would be a Person field "Requested By", or a hyperlink field, or customize the Progress field to add "Waiting for Someone Else".
    You get my drift...

  15. Create tasklists with subtasks. Link task together

    Make planner more as tasks in MS Project. Not as an replacement for Project, but create more details into subtask, scheduling and linking of tasks.

  16. creating tasks in planner for teams by drag and drop from outlook

    It would be great to create a Task out of an E-Mail from Outlook.
    Drag a mail and drop it into the planner tab should create a new task.

  17. Allow Planner tasks to be assigned & flagged "private"

    so that only assigner and assignee can see the task, even though the task "lives" in a Team Planner. One of my VPs would like to use Teams but has a need to assign Directors with tasks that his other Directors should not see. He's using Outlook tasks for now but he'd like to have it all in one place.

  18. Pin Planner tab to left panel in Teams

    Right now, you have to click a drop down to access Planner on the left panel, and there's a lot of space to add icons. Give the option to pin Planner there for easier access.

  19. Individual Planner to combine all tasks from all teams into one calendar view

    Currently you can view calendar at team level but not at individual level.

    Would be great if you had calendar view of all your tasks assigned to you from every team (or selected teams) at individual level so that one can plan week / month properly.

  20. Planner Task Comments need notification updates

    When someone updates a task, it would be nice to see a badge show up so we know something changed on the task. I just had someone put a comment in a task but I got no notification.
