  1. Add search to Planner (incl Teams)

    It will be very beneficial to be able to search in Planner, and to extend team search to include tasks in Planner as well.
    I'm sure many other users need to work back into past tasks to handle queries.

  2. task owner / task observer

    The possibility to assign a task owner and observers additionally to asignees.

    The assignee is responsible for the task, but the observers also get all notifications and are potentially involved.

    The creator of a task should automatically be asigned as owner.

  4. Make an option to add members of the Planner based on members of Private Channels

    Microsoft has done a very good job in creating Private Channels which wasn't available in the early days of MS Teams. Can we have the same functionality to add members of a Planner based on members of Private Channel. This is because some members of the General channel is not necessarily part of the Private channel which we want to assign tasks in a Planner. Looking forward for this functionality.

  5. Due Dates

    I'd appreciate to have the possibility to see when a due date has been changed by a team member. Currently everyone can change due dates and you won't be able to realize in case you don't know all the dates by heart.

  6. Copy Plan does not copy attachments of the type link

    Copy Plan does not copy attachments of the type link.
    We wanted to use planner for onboarding and as project templates and attached relevant links for the various tasks.
    Unfortunately planner does not copy the links nor offers it the option to do so.
    Without the functionality our use cases don't make any sense.

  7. Assign task to entire team (or channel) in Teams

    I sometimes have the need to assign a task to the entire team (or channel) in Teams when using the Planner. An example would be if everyone in the team are to update the vacation-plan. Instead of adding each single team-member to the task, it would be nice to use the same kind of feature as @mention you can use in a chat, and it automatically assigns the task to everyone in that team.

    Additionally - no limit as to how many that can be assigned the task or how many items in the checklist.
    Then I would use this…

  9. Ability to switch off keyboard shortcuts

    I very often use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right to select whole words of text when typing. When I am using Planner, this also moves the boards left and right which I don't want. How can I switch off this keyboard shortcut in Planner?

  11. Selective access to plan

    Please, allow Selective access, to restrict access of user inside a plan:
    For example user A is admin and can see everything
    user B has restrict acces and he can see only task assign to him or task he assigned to other user.
    But he cant see tasks not related to him.

    this is very important in some cases and if this feature wil be available I think Planner will be much more effective tool.

    Thanks
    Yakir

  13. Add Ability to 'lock' planner tasks to prevent accidental deletion

    Can there be a way to 'lock' tasks to prevent accidental deletion? Alternatively, the ability to see what has been deleted by other users and undo deletions

  14. Sort Buckets and Tasks

    The ability to sort Buckets alphabetically, creation date, due date, smallest to largest, largest to smallest, labels, criticality, etc. The same ability to sort within the tasks in the bucket would be great!

  18. Restrict Members from Task Deletion

    Hello Team Microsoft Planner,

    Please add an option to prevent or restrict members from deleting tasks created by Team Owners.
    I think it would not be great if you don't have this option on Planner. By the way, we've been waiting for a long time now.
    Thank you.

  19. Allow Plan creation without requiring Group creation permission

    Currently, in order to create a new Plan, you need to have permission to create a new Group.

    Why not allow people who don't have Group creation permission to at least create Plans within existing Groups!

  20. Task permissions

    Currently, everyone could delete a task. In addition to this, there is neither a tracking of deleted task, nor archived.

    It is a must the owner to be able to set task permissions - read; read/write access, delete, etc.
