            Thanks for the feedback. We’ve started work on our mobile apps and will working with the folks working on the Groups App to figure out all the right integration points.

          • Due date notification

            If a task is late (the due date has passed), please make sure to send a notification to both the owner and anyone related to the task (coworkers, team leader,...).

            • Provide the ability to create Plan templates with existing tasks that can then be used to create a new plan

              Rather than having to create every plan from scratch it would be good if the system allowed for the creation of Templates with pre-existing tasks (like in Word/Excel). This would allow a new plan and its tasks to be created from a template saving a lot of time.

              • Subtasks

                It would be good if we are able to create a subtask to an existing task.

                • Easily add Planner Tasks from within Outlook client and Office 365

                  Emails consume too much time and energy. As an email user I want to only view an email once and should be able to reply/forward to a person or Outlook Group/SharePoint Site, schedule a Planner task, and/or archive the email for future reference.

                  • Email Notifications and Alert Options

                    OK, so working out loud is good.... to a limit. Please enable settings that reduce the very high spam content currently coming from planner. Not everyone in the group wants to know ever movement on every task. Enable users to subscribe to various types of events on tasks. Hopefully at some time there will be some consistent settings like priority etc, that can be used as user selectable alert filtering.

                    • Gantt chart view

                      • Allow external users to view/edit tasks.

                        We have sub consultants that we collaborate with on a daily basis. It would be nice to have different levels of permissions to view tasks, edit tasks, and / or create tasks.

                        • Instead of 1 to 1, allow Groups to have many Plans

                          Right now, groups have a 1 to 1 relationship (1 Group = 1 Plan), would be nice for a single group to have multiple plans

                          • Need due dates to go onto calendar.

                            A project has a calendar, but that calendar doesn't automatically get due dates placed on it. That's pretty crucial.

                                • Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards.

                                  Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also copy or move them to different Plans/Boards that you are a member of.

                                      • Link Planner with Office 365 Tasks

                                        It would be great to have the option to make tasks created in Office 365 Tasks available in Planner

                                        • Please link Tasks to Outlook (desktop) and also allow users of MS Project to open them in that.

                                          When a Task is assigned, have Planner sent the email alert in the form of an Outlook Task Request (when the request is Accepted, Deferred, etc.) and it sits in the User's Outlook Task list -- have the ability for them to update progress within MS Outlook (desktop) itself -- and let that update Planner.

                                          (Similar features were available as far back as Outlook 2000 without a centralised server system. Now we have cloud, please bring back these features without worrying about MS Project Server / Online sales -- instead, make those "enterprise level" services...)
