  1. Notify assignee of new tasks in Planner in Teams for GCC

    I am astounded that Planner in Teams does not send any notification to the person assigned that they have a new task. Confoundingly, if anyone comments on any task, EVERYONE in the Team gets an email. Please fix this fundamental flaw that prevents Planner from functioning correctly in Teams for GCC.

  3. Team planner expansion

    You need to expand upon the planner and it’s capabilities as a self planner as well as tasking groups of people or individuals to a task and tracking their progress both as an individual as well as a group

  4. Disable email notifications for comments on Planner Tasks

    I want an option to disable whole group email/notifications for new comments. You can't disable this and it is causing inbox spam.

    Comments are not needed to be shared to the entire group, I don't see a reason why anyone would ever want this, especially when there can be multiple plans per group. If I want a single group for my department, we will want multiple plans to track all of our projects. Users want to be able to add comments to track changes and issues along the way, without email blasting everyone in the whole group.

    It would be…

  5. Overall dashboard for planner in teams

    In teams it would be nice to have a consolidated roll up of planner events. If it showed just a percentage and the name of the planner group would be helpful.

  7. Bookings access

    Bookings would be incredibly useful for Gov clients that need to schedule time with customers. Consultations, animal shots, and others would be wonderful.

  8. Integrate fully with Planner, SharePoint, and Outlook Tasks, Calendar (GCC)

    Please integrate more with Planner (timeline visualization channels for tasks) and/or with SharePoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place and with Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then, Planner is just a to-do tool that does not notify members of the team of new or changes in tasks and is not fully integrated for communication and coordination (copied from another board but Government needs this functionality also).

  11. Allow Printing of Planner Individual Tasks

    We would like to use the .pdf of the Task and associated comments with the names and dates of those involved as virtual route slips for completed tasks. We need to have the ability to open the task and print to .pdf to accomplish this. Thank you!

    PS. I realize there is an overall Excel file that can be downloaded of all tasks. We really like the view and structure of the actual task with completed items and comments and would prefer to have that individual task as a .pdf.

  12. Release Tasks app in Teams for GCCH (Microsoft To-do)

    Please release the Teams Task that is available in commercial tenants. This replaces the current "Planner" tab that is visible in GCC High

    Ideally this will sync with the release of Microsoft To Do for GCC High as well

  13. Publish and View Your Microsoft Planner Tasks in Outlook Government Tenants

    I'd like the ability to sync our tasks and to do lists from Microsoft Planner to the Microsoft Outlook Calendar. I just got off the phone with tech support and was told this is not an available function for Government Tenants. This is something that has been available at least for the past 3 years on enterprise licenses, why can't we do this on a government license?

    The permission is there under the admin center. Why doesn't it actually work?

  14. Increase number of checklist items within tasks (state gov't)

    Planner has been great for project management however many tasks I have far exceed the current 20 checklist item/task cap (one has 450 items that need checked off as they're completed by multiple people) - even if they could be bumped up to a 100 item/task cap that'd be great - thanks!

  15. Allow Notifications when using Planner GCC

    Planner would be an excellent solution for many group efforts within my branch, if notifications were allowed. It's frustrating to know that a great tool is available, but it's not fully functional, so we are stuck using calendar invites and email to share files. Please address this issue. Thank you.

  18. Color coding of boxes on planning app.

    Allow color coding of boxes on planning app. Either allow shading of the whole box or allow a band of color near the top of the box; the tiny flags do not stand out.
    Allow more color choices.
    And allow more people to be notified for a task.

    In the GCC. Thank you.

  20. DOD

    1. Add more labels in the planner, five labels is not enough. 2. Provide an export function for the calendar view to a pdf, excel or word document. I take a screen shot and save it to powerpoint to share with members who are not on teams.
