  1. Add a custom background to a plan

    Upload an image for the plan. Let an admin have simple control over how it's displayed - covering the background, on the left or right and top or bottom, centered, etc (simple CSS). People like to customize things and make them their own, and it would help differentiate different plans.

  2. I am excited about planner, when will I have access in 365?

    I am really eager to begin using it, however, each time I try to access it I get a message that it is not ready for my org yet. Any ideas when we will have access?

  4. Fix bug in Planner during email creation

    When creating a new plan from the web interface, you enter the plan name and it auto generates an email address. You can change the email address after, but it doesn't take in the system. The email address reverts back to the auto generated version.
    It appears to work fine when a new plan is generated from the Adim portal.

  6. Add plan email address as a member of a distribution group

    It would be great if we could add Plans to a distribution group.

  7. It would be great if we could select what type of updates to receive when subscribed, specifically emails sent to the Plan address.

    It would be great if we could select what type of updates to receive when subscribed to a plan and if the Plan email address would function more like a distribution group address.

    Combined with integrating tasks with Outlook, also assign an Outlook category to each task with the name of the Plan

  11. How do I change the logo?

    A week ago there was a settings area where I could change the logo for my new plan and now it's gone. How do I change the logo?

  12. Make it personal

    Planner is a very usefull tool to keep my daily, weekly or monthly tasks visually organized. So using it to keep track of the personal tasks, without creating a group, is a must for me.

  13. Not really an Idea: Send public links from sharepoint list

    We used to have a sharepoint list when we have all commercial proposals and was great sending public links(view not sign in required), but everything went messy when we move everything to planner since the sharepoint list doesn't allow us to send a public link

  14. My Wishes for the planner


    • link the task to get a task sequence with pre- and following tasks

    • if i change the endtime of a task - the linked following task have to change it start and endtime it self

    • mark other office 365 user or external to the tasks (for info or to get a info mail on changes)

    • a ios and android app - we use the app groups - its nice, but were're not able to create or change tasks into a plan

    thanks

  15. Make public plans discoverable

    Currently, there's no way for end-users to obtain an overview of all public plans, as -contrary to what the name implies- the "All Plans" section is in fact the "All MY Plans" section.

    If you know the name, you can find the related Group, but there's no way to go from the Group to the Plan.

  16. Suggestion are on Spot

    This product has some interesting concepts behind it, but is not ready for prime time. Unfortunately, first use experience, like going to a new restaurant, can either win or loose a following of customers. From suggestion I have seen, there is lots of room for improvement. Some suggestions:

    Options to send to all or a few in the group including non group members or other groups.

    Ability to edit a Plan name after initial set up.

    Allow one Notebooks that already exist to be connected to a group.

    Allow Outlook options to delay sending e-mail, notifications and task until a…

  17. PDF mark up

    You can attach files to tasks and for files like excel and word a user can make changes to the file within the task and it saves it. Would be nice to have a way to comment or markup a pdf file during a review process.

  19. Save view Preferences in My Tasks.

    When in My Tasks, change view to group by Plan, but it goes back to grouped by status when you refresh the page or renter the view. It should remember your preferences.
