  2. Add Member - Invitation Process Needs Improvement

    The invitation process needs improvement while adding members. Should include option to send link via custom email, or an automated email invite. Should also be immediate (currently seeing a lag). Lastly there should be increased options to create groups.

  3. Calculated sequence of tasks over all plans.

    Make a (user adaptable) formule to calculate a overall sequence of tasks.
    Out of urgency, (duration), importance, hard deadlines, soft start or end dates, next step in a sequential plan, ... that still can be corrected a little manual.
    That's what we want to know: what to handle next!

  6. Please complete the rollout!

    Please complete the rollout!

    We would really like to begin using the product, yet here it is November and we don't have it on menu, yet.

    What's taking so long...?

    Thanks for listening.

  8. Deactivated users that have been assigned/completed a task or posted comments cause a "this doesn't look like a valid email address" error.

    We have noticed that Groups/Plans which have tasks that are either assigned/completed or have comments from now deactivated users produce the error "This doesn't look like a valid email address" within any of the tasks within that Group/Plan... The comments are also labelled as Anonymous...

    Just to be clear
    John Smith starts employment and has an Office 365 E3 license.
    John Smith is assigned a task (may complete or comment)
    John Smith leaves the company and account is deactivated/deleted.
    The Groups/Plans that John Smith were assigned tasks now cause the above errors.

    John Smith is no longer a member of…

  10. More than one Projet template, embedded Planner template

    Not a just project management, but planning and implementation can be managed integratedly by mounting this function.

    Many users expect service of an one-stop.

  11. Task Finished lable in Outlook Group

    I delegate many tasks per day.
    So I have many emails in my Planner group mailbox. It would be great if finished task could have a color mark in my inbox.

    Even better if there would be a color mark of the categories in the Group mailbox.

  12. Automatic comments posted to the task when a task is reassigned by the person who reassigned it.

    Currently there is no trail that shows who reassigned a task. It only shows who the original task was assigned to. It would be much easier to follow-up if when a task is reassigned by someone that a note is made and posted within the task comment section.

  13. Status of saving or save button

    I would like to see a message somewhere, like in Office Online, which says "Saving" as you make changes and "Saved" once the changes are committed, or to have a save button that ensures all changes are committed before closing the task and opening a new one.

    I've been using Planner daily for several weeks, and I've noticed sometimes the updates to my tasks just don't save. Sometimes I'll get the error message indicating communication is unavailable and to try again, but not always. I've learned to wait a few seconds while updating checklists, descriptions, and names of tasks and…

  14. Disappearing task details

    Hi, We've been working with the planner for a while now, and every now and again we run into issues where the details captured on a task disappears on re-opening or the details captured on one task would appear randomly on other tasks. This happens randomly, or at least we have not been able to figure out what the sequence of events are that causes this.

    I have posted this questions in a couple of other forums but have not yet found a conclusive answer/solution.

    Has anyone else experienced this, and if so do you perhaps know of a work-around,…

  18. Add View preferences (settings )

    For example, Buckets :
    Settings should be there to View Buckets as list or tile (sortable by fields such as date)
    Same may apply for other features as well.

  19. Send Notifications about task assignment and task completion to the Plan's conversation feed.

    There is an option to either send notifications to an entire group or limit notification to only those assigned a task. I have "unselected" the option to notify all group members. However, if I leave Planner and log back in the option to send to all group member is selected. My previous action was over written.
