  1. Create custom options for 'progress' status at task level and checklist line level (i.e. ability to add 'On Hold' or 'Not Applicable')

    Currently, there are three options for the 'Progress' field status. You can either keep the status as 'Not Started' (default), or update to 'In Progress' or 'Completed'. However, there are many instances during a project that the task becomes null or on hold, for which you would want the ability to create custom progress status labels such as 'On Hold' or 'Not Applicable'. You may not want to delete the item in order to track tasks that were created through the term of the project, in which case 'Not Applicable' will be useful.

    Another suggestion would be to also add…

  2. Create custom board and list views from filter

    Ability to create board and list views from custom filters.

    We need to be able to pull data from multiple projects and show them in a custom view based on a predefined filter.

  3. Google Messages to Finally Add End-to-End Encryption for RCS

    An internal analysis says that the latest update in the process.
    Google Messages are about to introduce the encryption feature for RCS, which will be end to end. 9to5 Google confirmed the news regarding the introduction of RCS through APKMirror. RCS or Rich Communication Services is set to offer everything that most of the text messaging services do will succeed in SMS messaging. But, there is a big difference between Rich Communication Services provided by Google Messages and other messaging services like iMessage and Signal. Most of the messaging services, including Signal or iMessage, grant end to end encryption, but…

  6. Allow a NOT option for filters

    I would like to have the option to select a filter and mark a NOT to do the item. For example to select a label and then find all the cards that do NOT have that label.

  7. It would be nice to see Planner have a dark mode that can be enabled or set automatically based on the Windows color theme.

    Add dark mode functionality and or set color theme to match Windows color theme. This is already available in To Do and it's a great feature.

  8. 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.

  10. More logical options to add files to Planner (specifically from within Teams)

    When adding or editing a task in a Planner from Teams tab, the options to add a file are not logical.

    The likelihood is that the task refers to either a file that is already in Teams or one that is in OneDrive.

    The "SharePoint" option needs to say "Teams" when working within Teams.

    And there needs to be a OneDrive option, as there is throughout Teams.

    This would make the experience consistent and avoid the duplication of files by users who are unsure of how to proceed. Many new Teams users don't necessarily recognize that calling to "SharePoint" enables…

  12. overview video

    It would be great to get a short video on what Planner is, why people should use it. It would be really helpful for our communications and to add to the Learning Pathways site.

  14. Global Tasks

    Global tasks would allow an organization to set goals or tasks that should be completed within EVERY Plan. So things like training goals / tasks, or HR related milestones, or other could be set up for an organization. It would also be great it they can be split up by ROLE or by GROUP related Tasks.

    Furthermore, as a way of handling metrics for those RECURRING tasks, it would be nice to be able to determine how long it usually takes an individual to complete those tasks so you can gauge your personal effectiveness with the tasks as you continue…

  15. The planner user's as the first option in the assignment filter list

    When I go to apply the assignment filter, to know the tasks assigned to me, I have to search for my name. The first name of the filter list can be as the user's own name.

  16. View ONLY action of Planner Tasks

    Right now, anyone can add/change/modify the tasks in planner, if you have access to the Planner. Recommend providing a VIEW ONLY feature. I am a member of many teams more on an advisory level. When accessing Planner to review status and/or prepare for meetings with the team, it is very easy to accidentally "complete" tasks when opening the cards. I can correct this right away, but would prefer that I only had "read-only" access. It would seem this would be a normal use case for the tool.

  17. Ability to set up a default to-do list within a task when I create a new task

    I use Planner for assigning incoming work items to those on my team. Each time I create a new task to assign the job, I have to write out the same list of sub-tasks (checkbox items) but would love to just have this pre-populated when I hit 'Add task'

  18. Define who can approve a task

    In the plan, it would be ideal for the person creating the task to define whether the task needs approval or who can approve it.

    My collaborators have completed tasks without having been satisfactorily completed.

    It is necessary to send a notification of the modified tasks.

  19. Allow global admins view number of tasks using the UI or Powershell

    We are trying to clean up some of our 365 groups and we have no clue which ones have active planner tasks associated with them to get them migrated to other groups. I would love it if there is a feature to let us know which ones have tasks without needing to add admins to groups.

  20. Export Planner to Excel - Date and Time

    Dear admin, is it possible to tweak a Planner excel export and have time stamp in addition to the date. Basically, can you change the date to the date and time format. This is very useful when using to create audit evidence and allows to track the completion and creation time. There is no option to have versioning in the Planner yet, as far as I know.
