  1. 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.

    • 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 item description

        It would be nice if the planner item description had some formatting options. I use this to add details with headers/bullet points/strikethrough etc. Thanks!

        • Copy Planners as Templates into other Teams

          If I have the same/similar set of deliverables for multiple projects and I want to make a "Template" Planner that can be uploaded to multiple Teams without having to enter all the deliverables into a new Planner for every project. Can we make this happen?

          • Integrate Planner with Calendars and Meetings

            It would be nice to be able to see my calendar (and other calendars if selected) and drag tasks into my calendar with estimated completion time to plan out my month.

            -Integrate Calendar with Planner
            -Ability to filter based on task criteria or calendar
            -Add estimated completion time to tasks
            -Ability to visually plan by dragging task into holes in my calendar.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Ability to print Planner tabs in Teams

                  The ability to print/export the full details of a Planner tab is very needed. it makes it difficult to flow with others when the only access to the tab is live in the app.

                    Planner within Team Desktop Client: Add Group By View
                    The web version has ability to switch between views(bucket, progress etc). Also make the default view between the desktop and web version the same to avoid confusion.

                    • Just Makes Teams The Default for Groups

                      I may be misunderstanding Teams, but I am wondering why this just isn't the Groups platform? It's the perfect setup for what Groups seemed to be when they first came out. A quick, easy, convenient place for collaboration with files, events/meetings, planner, and conversation. Just seems to "choppy" as "another place". Sharepoint/Team sites can be left separate in the case there is a need for that type of functionality. But, again,

                      I may be misunderstanding. Really like the interface and definitely see this replacing internal email all together. With the potential for email to become external communications mainly.

                      • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • Task Dependencies

                              It would be nice to be able to setup up dependencies. For example within a board be able to set a task that has to be completed before another task can be started. This would be even more helpful if when the frist task was completed the assigned personal on the next task where alerted so they could start their task. This isn't meant to compete with Shartpoint or Project Manager. I'm not trying to setup a Project as much as allow my Network team alert my ground team that the network is ready for the change over that they…

                                  • Planner tab - Enable 'Chart' and group by 'Progress' and 'Assigned'

                                    Planner tab - Pls enable 'Chart' and 'Progress' view

                                    When we open a new tab for a Planner plan, it can only show tasks by bucket.

                                    It was so usefull have the same experience as we do when using the Planner app on mobile or website with these views.

                                      We don't monitor teams (especially planner) 24/7. It'll be very helpful if assigned members got an email notification to any updates in the card. Members can choose to subscribe to any cards or even the boards (all cards by default).
