      Hello,

      We’ve started development on the first item:
      1. Support viewing Planner Tasks on an Outlook Calendar
      We will add the ability to turn on an iCalendar feed (.ics feed) for the “My Tasks” view and for each Plan. You can subscribe to this feed in Outlook to see Planner tasks in context with your other events.

      We expect to start work on the second item soon:
      2. Create a Calendar/Schedule visualization
      We’ll create a new view that allows you to easily view and edit tasks in the context of a calendar.

      Thanks!

    • Integration with outlook tasks

      New tasks created in Planner should also be seen in outlook

      • 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,...).

          Thank you for all the feedback. We have started development on a Due Date notifications feature. This feature will send notifications for tasks at various intervals before they are due, and also for tasks that have recently become past due.

          Thanks!

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Gantt chart view

              I want to be able to make tasks dependent on other tasks, and see them in a Gantt chart view, similar to TeamGantt.com.

              • Subtasks

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

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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

                      • 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.

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

                                  • Copy a task

                                    Need the ability to copy a task, including the checklists and other items within the task. This would allow one to set up a template task, then create many tasks using that template task. This is a different request than the many copy suggestions that have been made already.

                                      • 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

                                        • I want a "Convert to Task Planner" button for emails

                                          Most of our tasks come in via email, a simple button to convert it to a planner task would be imperative, otherwise it renders the planner a little bit pointless for us.
