  1. Plan description or mission statement or banner message

    Currently the plan description refers to the Office 365 group. My idea would be to have a way to have a banner / description visible at the top of plan pages (specific to the plan) to encourage or guide the creation of tasks in the plan.

  2. Ability to add email as Planner Task

    Many time - new action items come in from clients and consultants as emails. It would be great if from the web app I could convert an email to a planner task - carry the body of the email as a note - and automatiacally add any attachments as documents attached to the task.

    Look at Todoist for inspiration.

  4. Error 500 on a XMLHttpRequest to the URLs related to GetGroupsForUserFallback.

    Error 500 on a XMLHttpRequest to the URLs related to GetGroupsForUserFallback. Results in "An error occurred while trying to load your plans." Making it impossible to view plans or us the product.

  6. Completed Tasks Font Type Should not be Strikeout

    Title of Completed tasks are currently stricken out. That makes it hard to read during status meetings. It would be useful to have the option to change the font format to regular font.

  7. Show / hide for the left side menu & allow to arrange buckets vertically also

    Using the iPad or other tablets it would be useful, if we could show / hide the menu on the left to gain some room on the screen.
    Also allowing to group buckets or arrange them vertically also could be useful

  8. Simple template structures for plans and predefined checklists

    Allow to create simple template structures like PDCA, DMAIC or 8D and predefined, retrievable check lists like SMART, SIPOC, 5Why, 5W2H, ...

  10. Printing Capability

    Printing Capability - company and individual. Ideally would have the ability to print out the entire planner board so that everyone at the company can see the entire project list and have a transparent way for everyone to track performance. Similarly would be ideal to allow individual users print out their tasks.

  12. Add Size Value to a Task

    On the Task form, allow for a "Size" field, that could be numeric or other definable values, to help provide a measure of the complexity or effort needed for a task.

    I would like to be able to carry over the concept of User Story pointing into Planner.

  14. Only the Administrator of a plan should have right to delete or reassign tasks

    Only the Administrator of a plan should have right to delete or reassign tasks. Now, if the plan Administrator assign a task to an user, he/she can delete the tasks, and this action of deleting tasks should be only allowed to plan Adminsitrators

  15. One global Calendar for all "Tasks" from all "Plans"

    Getting all scheduled tasks/dates to show up on one global calendar feed is essential. Right now Planner creates a separate "Calendar" (which does not display any of the created tasks - its just an empty calendar - must be a glitch) there is a limitation to overlay 10 calendars total to your main calendar. Ideal approach would be to have a "Tasks" calendar that would feed all "Plans" from all "tasks" to one calendar with active link to that task in planner abbreviation or listing of "Plan" name. This would allow team leader to print a weekly calendar showing all…

  16. Undelete

    It would be wise to add undelete somewhere as we just lost an entire plan somehow.

  18. There is no easy way to link to a file when in a task

    It would be nice if there was a way to navigate to the file when you click "Link" within a task.
