  2. Container visibility / editability for each user or group

    It could be userful, for each container inside the plan, enstablish if the container is visible / editable by which users.

    If you will add the possibility to creare group of users inside Planner, we could also decide if the container is visible / editable by which Groups

  3. Add link as attachment disappears upon save

    Link attachments in tasks often disappear upon pressing save. This is across different plans and occurs roughly 1/3 of the time I attempt to add one. No error message is displayed. The link attachment simply disappears after save is pressed.

  4. Make planner seem more integrated with Teams.

    Why do they feel like Planner and Teams are so separate. I am confused at how you have set up these various apps and it just doesn't seem to flow from a user perspective to me. I have used Basecamp in the past and I am trying to figure out how we can use this instead but I am lost!

  5. Sign up for alerts per release not team

    We have multiple releases going on for a team (i.e. our Sales IT team handles releases for CRM, our contract app, etc.) because the team works on multiple apps. I want to receive email alerts (as tasks are added, etc.) for the releases I'll be part of and not get them at the Group level. So I'd like to sign up for them at the release level. Would also be nice for alerts to automatically go to those with at least 1 task in the release so you don't even have to sign up for it. Then allow anyone that…

  6. "Your session has expired. Please sign in again" at bottom of screen, even though sign is is active

    The message, "Your session has expired. Please sign in again", is persistent at bottom of Planner screen, even though sign is is active and I can access Plans and items therein without any problem.

  7. Planner is not allowing me to attach Files?

    Planner is not allowing me to upload Excel Files? It will show the file in the Upload area (Shaded), and the Status bar never indicates Uploading/change in status. If I leave the page, and re-enter the Planner...the file is not there. Any ideas?

  10. Provide a Public URL for public projects

    Currently, when you create a new planner project as public, if you provide the URL to another team member, they are brought to the planner hub. If there are a lot of projects, it can be hard to find the one you clicked the link for.

    It would be nice to have a clean URL like https://tasks.office.com/wwu2.onmicrosoft.com/Home/Planner/UserID/plan-name

  12. Basic Feature: email support

    Any task management application that respects itself should give the user SOME WAY to convert an email message to a task.

    Most task requests arrive by email. It would be nice if the whole world was using Planner and everything arrived directly inside the app but until that happens, developers must give us users an easy entrance point for the emailed tasks.

    Practical example: My boss sends me an email containing a task for a specific project with important information, and a couple of attached documents. In order to add this to my project now, I have to go to…

  15. My feedback after a brainstorming with the team, to use or not Planner

    good idea but no usefull for the moment, because of:


    • no global vision accross different Plan

    • no vision about: "I arrive the morning at my desk, open Planner and look what I have to do and in which order"

    • no possibility to link a task to another with priority order

    • no possibility to build a Gantt graph

    • no private functionality on a specific task (own privacy or restriction to some members) ==> rights management

    when this will be implemented, than I will probably use it and stop my excel file following.

  17. Notify all members of a plan

    I would like the possibility for the member of a plan to be notify wherever I create a task, update it and even complete it or write a comment in it even thought it's not assigned to them.
