  2. Improve Task Attachment & Link workflow

    Action:
    Open a Task
    Click on Attach
    Click on Browse OneDrive
    The window that appears has no options for browsing my own OneDrive for Business folders or for browsing SharePoint Sites.

    Click on Link
    The window that appears has no option for browsing OneDrive or SharePoint Sites.

    Improvement: similarly, allow for browsing SharePoint Sites or OneDrive folders in order to link to an existing file. The link should be about creating a shortcut to an existing file, so that updates made to that file are…

  3. Provide an option to block buckets from external users

    The idea here is that once you enable access to boards by external users, not all buckets on a board may necessarily need to be shared with those external users, in fact, we certainly have information that only needs to be shared with our internal Team. This is a feature currently offered by Basecamp, for example

  6. milestones

    You should be able to set a general start and end target date for the project. Then it set some high level KPIs with due dates.
    Then the graph view can show a timeline with that information as well as the specific "tasks".

  11. Make optional planner name in Global Address List

    Our IT admin is concerned that each Plan created in the Hub creates a listing in the global address directory. These global group addresses are often not meaningful. Is there a way to have a tickbox that optionally hides the Planner name from the GAL?

  12. Should have an option to add members who are not part of active directory

    Currently members who are part of the active directly can alone be selected. Need an option to add external members too. Or an option to create a member list.

  13. Ability to add tasks to the task owners calendar

  14. Increase task description character limit

    The current 1,000 character limit for tasks description is far too small. This should be increased massively or be unlimited.

  17. Ability to sort plans under "Favorites" in left navigation bar

    I would like to move the plans under the Favorites navigation bar to the left. When you click on Planner Hub to see the charts, the plans display in the order of the navigation (I think). I want the different plans to display their Hub chart but see them in a certain order.
