  1. Option To Close / Complete Plan

    Perhaps I am missing it but I can't find a way to close a plan when its complete. The hub view always shows all plans and is quite cluttered already.

  2. View completed tasks in Bucket chart

    We want to be able to see Completed tasks in the 'Bucket' chart. It makes no sense to hide them!

    Also, could the completed tasks not be crossed out, so they're easier to read once completed.

    Thanks

  3. Add people to plan as View Only

    We would like to have people be able to view a plan and subscribe to email updates, but be unable to edit the plan. This way we can restrict access to a plan's visibility while still allowing interested parties to view progress, etc.

  4. Sort Plans in Planner hub

    Groups are automatically sorted when browsing Groups. Add drag/drop or alphabetical sort to Planner Hub, or at least default sort them alphabetically.

  5. Provide the ability to use rich text on the card description and comments fields.

    It'd be useful to be able to use rich text in a cards - formatting, bullet points, etc.

  6. Putting tasks on HOLD

    Add the ability to be able to put the status of a task on hold, and be able to show this is the status charts - that is a much needed feature. Great work by the way, Planner is awesome!

  7. A view to see all tasks from planners in all channels in a Team

    You can see all tasks from a Planner in a channel

    But you can't see all tasks from multiple Planners in a channel

    And you can't see all tasks from all the Planners that are created in Team

    Basically you can't get a view from multiple Planners...yes, the My Tasks feature allows you to see your tasks across multiple Planners

    ...but a project lead would be interested in seeing all tasks from the multiple planners that exist in a Team

    The only hack is for the project lead to assign themselves every task, then the problem is you can't filter…

  8. within the integration with teams, allow @mentions

    I like having Planner inside Microsoft Teams. However, it would be nice if we could @mention a team member within the comments on a Planner task and they would get a notification just like the @mention in a Teams channel. We are moving away from the clutter of email, so any additional integration into Teams is a huge plus. I don't want a notification about something I'm working on in Teams to go to my email. It just doesn't make sense anymore.

  10. read only

    It would be useful, eg for Management Reporting to be able to provide someone with Read Only access across all Plan's you are in/own

  13. Integration with Sharepoint Sites

    Integrate Planner with Sharepoint sites so multiple Plans can belong to a Team site.

  14. Add more options to Planner Flow Connectors

    Make the Planner Flow connector more robust, such as the ability to attaching a file or updating the details and comments when creating a task. For instance, if you choose to have an incoming email create a task, you should be able to have any attachments added to the task, and the message body entered in details or comments.

  17. I really loved it. But I am wondering if there can be multiple task owners for one task.

    I created a task, which has two owners in actual. For example, there is a presentation being conducted by two members, I should be able to make two owners instead of one.

  19. Add a List view option?

    Hello,
    I am currently an Asana user. Do you have any plans to add a "List" view option in MS Planner? My team and I currently work in the "List" view of Asana. We tried the "Bucket / Board" view and did not like it. We would consider using MS Planner if you offered a "List" view to work from in your application.

    Do you have any plans to add a "List" view option in MS Planner?

    Thanks

    JB

  20. Set due time for a task in Microsoft Planner

    It would be nice if it’s able to set Tasks’ due, not only due date but also due time when creating a Planner task. For instance, set due time on the day selected from a calendar (May 17, 2018 12:00 AM).
