  1. error message placement

    In a recent update you moved Error Messages to the bottom of the screen. This is frankly insane. How many people do you know who look at the bottom of the screen? Please move them back into an actually visible location again.

  2. Allow email notifications to tell me when a task that is assigned to me is getting close to the due date.

    Overall, need better options around notification of tasks related to due dates (getting close, due tomorrow, overdue, due date changed by username, etc).

  4. New Planner Update

    Let me first say, the planner has worked very well for me, and I have based a lot of my project management and tasks on the planner, and its pipeline based construction.

    But the new update of the planner is making it run very bad. The individual sliding project pipelines was a good idea, but its so slow!

    I use the planner on a daily basis, and these slight changes to the way it moves have only slowed down my process's. The sliding of cards from one pipeline to another, barely works. The updated look was not needed, change of…

  5. Users cannot see their tasks organized into Buckets

    In the My Tasks section of Planner, when a user switches to "view by Plan" they should be able to click the plan to then view the tasks assigned to them in that plan in the Bucket View that is available to admins. Currently, the current My Tasks view is very unorganized even if the admin has carefully setup an organized workflows and/or structure via buckets.

  6. Add 'Site Home' to the drop down menu in Planner

    In Planner, the elipses opens a menu to notebook, Conversations etc. Please add the Home link to the menu so it connects the Planner to the sharepoint site that was created with the Planner

  10. Make a plan truly public

    If I am not mistaken public plans does not mean public in the sense that it is accesible for all web users. We are currently using Trello to publish our organizations tasks/featueres from private boards to a truly public Trello roadmap. This feature would be great to have in Planner.

    Background: We are having a very good experience using Teams and If Planner turned out to be as great as Trello (or better, Trello do have some room for improvement) we would start using Planner in combination with Teams.

  11. Wrong information "Sign in" page

    Just one thing I've noticed...

    "Use your work, school, or personal Microsoft account."

    However, you can't use your personal Microsoft account to access Microsoft Planner (I used a Microsoft account with Office 365 Home and the website goes back to Sign In page) so I think this information shouldn't be there because this can lead to a misunderstanding of which accounts we can use to access Planner.

  12. create unique

    Please could you add Planner as a Filter on the 365 Roadmap so we can see what is in development.

  13. Assingment Notifications

    Like when replying to Outlook meeting invites, person assigning a task can select whether to send notification ("Send Response Now") to assignee or not ("Do Not Send Response Now"). This would help reduce spam. The current subscription model is too much information/notification.

  16. Better Error Messages

    Have more descriptive error messages that actually tell people what's wrong with what they're doing. I was attempting to upload images to a task with a file image that was much too long. I kept getting an error message that I should "try again," but that doesn't direct me to actually fix the issue. I only discovered that the file name was too long based on trial and error.

  17. change the order of the tasks

    When you create new tasks in the blank plan, they are added in the order of creation but we need to be able to change their order on the dashboard so users know which task is first etc.

  18. the ability to have one/same task as part of more than one plan or a Task in a plan. Ability to create a Today list would be useful

    The planner would be much more useful if you could create a 'Today List' without moving or copying task from their current plan or bucket.

    Also, a task that could be a member of more than one plan.

  19. The user should not be able to change the due date until the manager approves

    So we have plans/tasks for the team to work on. But the user can change the due date which shouldnt be the case until his reporting manager accepts it.

  20. Transform verification list as potential sub-task list

    Using them as a check-list is good. An improvement point would be to have templates for actions with predefined check-lists, or templates for check-list
    I also use these lists as sub-task lists, and I'm missing due dates on the elements of the list
