  4. Request a way to limit access by outside contractors

    We use outside contractors...a lot. Need a way to share tasks with them efficiently without creating duplicates of these tasks. Admins should be able to adjust the security of the contractor users.

  5. Planner domain

    When we open Planner from the top-left menu in Office 365, Planner is opening on the following URL:
    https://tasks.office.com/mydomain.onmicrosoft.com/

    However we would like it to be using our domain instead of microsoft's, like this:
    https://tasks.office.com/mydomain.com/

    How can we change the domain for Planner?

    Office 365 Domain is mydomain.com. Need to have Planner under the same domain.

    Thank you,

  6. Labels and comments get lost

    My labels and comments within tasks get lost as soon as I switch plans or on a day to day basis. This is really annoying.

  7. Admin Console

    Build planner into a configurable tool for variable size team collaboration. Some teams need more or less notifications, emails, statuses, roles, reporting, etc. Enhanced smartly, Planner could rival Atlasssian's Jira workflow management capabilities.

  8. Add icon to plans

    The short-cuts on the left side of the user interface is useful for jumping between different plans. However, it only shows two letters for each group e.g. CB for consumer b2b.
    It would be great if a plan/group could have an icon instead to make it recognizable.

  9. Duplicate a Project including associated ON File

    I intend to use the plan to manage the training needs of a very large organisation.

    Every member of staff will have a training plan which we will treat as a project linked to sways.

    What I like is the very visual way we can monitor and manage training needs.

    A key requirement is to monitor and manage evidence of understanding. The associated ON file provides the ideal platform to associate evidence with the standards. We will also use the ON file to manage appraisal etc.

    Supervisors as members of the training, support and manage completion of the training. They…

    As an update, since we’ve still been seeing issues around date formatting, so we’re pursuing another fix that should help: If you’re using Planner within Teams, we will default to using the same language/local as Teams.

    If you’re seeing this issue persist outside of Teams and your language/locale is set properly for your Office account, please let us know in the comments below!

    Thanks,
    The Planner Team

  13. First and Lastname do not change on planner

    When my account was created the first and lastname where filled in incorrectly. When changing these in O365 admin the names did not resolve into planner. The wrong names still appear.

  14. Add Alert button from documents to the planner

    In the documents section of each group there is an alert button that allows you to set alerts when documents change, are added, etc. If I could have this same feature for the planner that would be great. Right now, we only receive a notification when a task is created. I would like to be able to set reminders (1 week, 3 days, 24 hours, etc.) for when the due date is coming up. That would drastically improve workflow.

  15. Add description field to buckets

    It would be great to be able to add some additional info to the Buckets, for example being able to list the criteria that must be met for a task to move from one bucket to the next (the Definition of Done or Policy). It could also be used to describe the work item limit for the bucket.

  16. Show all plans without entering the Group (for admins)

    Admins should have the opportunity to show all Office plans within the organization without entering the Group.

  17. Set default views

    Can we have the ability to setup default views? Would be nice to have the team to access the plan and go to a predefined view that is easier to consume. I have a project with multiple members and its hard to track each ones actions for them when the access the tools and it goes straight to board view. Can we have the ability to have them go to the charts view with predefined filters? That would help make it visual as chart is a dynamic dashboard that makes it easier to track each peoples tasks.

  18. Support zooming and fullscreen

    Planner Cards take a lot of screen estate. It would be good to introduce a Fullscreen mode, e.g. as realized in PowerBI, and also to provide a zoom slider as seen in the Office programs

  19. Option To Close / Complete Plan

    Perhaps I am missing it but I can't find a way to close a plan when its complete. The hub view always shows all plans and is quite cluttered already.

  20. Include the bucket name in all email the Planner sends

    Specifically, when I add a comment to a task, and email goes out to all group members. The subject of the email is the name of the task. The body is my comment. There is no way in the email to tell what bucket the task is part of. Perhaps include a link in the email to the task and comment in the Planner tool.
