  1. To be able to create sub-tasks and assign them to different team members.

    At present, there are checklists in a task. Please provide the ability to assign due dates to these checklist items (subtasks) and they can be allocated to different team members. It should also be able to display as a Gantt chart by setting precedents.

  2. Develop a desktop app for Planner

    It would be awesome to have a desktop app for Planner. I found that my team does not like to go in through their web browsers to access Planner. It would make it a lot more accessible.

  4. Can you time how long a task takes?

    From starting a task as in progress to the task being complete. Once in complete you can then see a time for the task to complete.

  5. Great if only the creator (admin) of a plan could have authority to modify plan main data, like starting and ending dates and others.

    Great if only the creator (admin) of a plan could have authority to modify plan main data, like starting and ending dates and others. Participants in a plan should only be able to interact with the plan.

  8. board descriptions

    Include a Planner board Description field above buckets. This will allow creators to add a description to describe the purpose of the board, along with instruction or guides on its use/purpose or any other details relevant to it.

  9. @Tag People or use #Tags in Tasks (then search or filter by both)

    It would be great if we could @Tag people and use #tags within tasks and search or filter by either.

  12. Allow more checklist items

    Currently each task is limited to 20 checklist items. I'd love to be able to include more than that.
    I realize that for many use cases, 20 is plenty. In our case, we're using one task to represent the writing process and we need 30 checklist items to represent the chapters.

  13. Option to have "Show on Card" checked by default

    There should be on option in Plan Settings to have "Show on Card" checked by default for Notes/Checklists/Attachments for making a new task. Wanting these things shown on the card is dependent more on workflow than on the individual task, so it should be a universal option within a plan. (Alternatively, having "Show Notes (Etc.) on Cards" as a board-level view option, rather than an individual card setting, might be even better.)

  14. Enable View Only Access to Planner

    It would be relly useful if you could give someone in your organisation View or Read only access to Planner, so they're able to see work, but not amend items.

  17. Planner Desktop App

    It would be very helpful to have a Planner Desktop app. My team uses Microsoft Teams and uses Planner for our different channel projects. In the browser a person can see all tasks assigned to them across the different Planners that they are tagged in but I am unable to see that in Teams. Our team members would be much more likely to fully integrate with using Planner if they could see this Personal dashboard view in a Planner desktop app.

  18. Highlight when a task is new with a 'new' icon/badge

    This request comes from working with a customer who would want to see when a new task is added (without getting an email notification) where it could show on the task (maybe a bubble per say) showing the word NEW.

  19. Planner functionality

    I want to have a personal planner, but also a place that combines all the planner cards that have been assigned to me in all the Teams I'm in. Currently, if I move a card to "In Progress" in my personal team, it won't update it in the combined planner.

  20. 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
