  1. planner hub

    Hide a bucket, once the tasks in a bucket are complete then It would be good to have the ability to hide the bucket leaving only the current buckets available.

  2. This may be a glitch, but I've noticed that once a task is initially assigned, the person is removed if you open the tast to add description

    This may be a glitch, but I've noticed that once a task is initially assigned, the person is removed if you open the task to add description/notes, etc. You then have to re-assign that person

  5. Reporting for task in work

    As usual users interesting not only in task tracking, but in work tracking.
    Input plan and actual total work would be useful

  6. "Add to favorites" Bug

    In a previously favorited plan, the option to "Remove from favorites" does not appear, only "Add to favorites" again. You must first "add again" before the remove option appears to take a plan off your favorites list.

  8. Get rid of Groups

    Please get rid of groups. This seems to be an attempt to hold on to Sharepoint and in my opinion, is crippling Teams, Yammer, Wunderlist and Planner.

    Groups is confusing as heck and is quite annoying. You really need to look at FOCUSING on what makes Yammer and Wunderlist awesome; they are not built on Sharepoint and the frameworks just works. I love some of the direction of Microsoft, but you need to stop confusing your customers. HP is a good reason why you should not just "shotgun" everything out there. Their product line confuses, thus people are leaving them.…

    an option to "tick" that emails coming from people who are not assigned to the group can get through to the inbox, as can be found in the outlook.

  11. When I "Unsubscribe from email updates" for a plan, do not send me email.

    I don't know if it's because I'm also a plan owner, or because I'm the one posting the comment to a task, but I'm unsubscribed and still getting the email.

  13. Make Planner its own stand alone product.

    It is frustrating that it always creates a Group.

  14. Higher uptime.

    Create some kind of downloadable option, that way my project won't come to a halt whenever Microsoft has an issue.

  15. Make it based on Steven Covey's 7 habits of effectiveness

    Have a look at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.andtek.sevenhabits&hl=de . Amazing app, but limited due to not for teams and not cross plattforms. This is the potential for Microsoft.

  16. Send email to responsible people when you create plan, or add new responsible people to it.

    Why there in no such a function. It is the main problem, It cant be using becouse of that problem. You cant find that one people are waiting to you 1 all the month, and it will be to late to do anything.

  17. Thank you for auto-save

    It saves time that I don't have to click any save button, and I can click anywhere outside the edit dialog to return to the board. I don't have to click on a small X somewhere!

  18. Provide a link to delete the plan when trying to quit it

    People trying to quit a plan they are the only member of most likely are just trying to find how to delete it. Provide a link for plan deletion in the error message.

  20. Annoying pop-up, no way to cancel

    Every time I open a plan I get this annoying pop-up "Did you know? You can use your (organisation) account to download the latest versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote."

    There's no way to mark it as "read" and get rid of it.
