  2. Ctrl+Enter to post comment

    In general would like to see more keyboard shortcuts so I can live inside of planner and really make use of all its features quickly.

    A starting point would be Ctrl + Enter to go ahead and post a comment instead of having to move off keyboard, grab mouse, move over to blue Post button, and click.

  3. Edge Bug - mouse-click does not update cursor location within subtasks title

    When adding/editing sub-tasks in MS Edge, the cursor location is not being updated with the mouse-click. I had to revert to using the arrow keys to move there cursor and edit text.

  5. Use OneNote Template for Each New Planner Instance

    We would like to create a master OneNote template to be available for each new Planner instance that we create - this template will sit behind the OneNote link at the top of the Planner page and would spawn a new instance of itself upon first opening.

  6. Keyboard shortcuts

    Need keyboard shortcuts to more quickly navigate planner. For example I would like to be able to hover on a card and press 1, 2, 3, 4, etc to quickly apply a label to a card. Would also be nice to have a 2-3 key press to filter cards by label, to search, etc.

  8. Increase speed of updating Group Calendar in desktop Outlook

    When a new event is added to Group Calendar using Office 365 Planner Web App, the calendar view in Outlook desktop does not reflect the change for several hours; appears to sometimes take until the next day. The updates in desktop Outlook should preferably be immediate or within minutes; or at minimum should occur when Sync is performed in desktop Outlook.

  9. Email notifications appear to be inconsistent at best.

    Some people get an email when a task is assigned to them, others do not. When someone comments on a task, the assigned person sometimes gets an email and sometimes does not. It seems the only way to fix is to subscribe to the plan, but then you see all of the conversations which is overkill. Please fix so people get notified when they are assigned a task or someone comments on a task they own. Thanks!

  10. Create 'dummy' users to show when tasks are allocated to third parties (even if the ability to include external parties is provided)

    It would be useful to show where tasks have been assigned to third parties, either where those parties cannot join your group or where you do not want to share the group with them.

  11. offer option of adding an email address to a Plan

    Our GAL is now becoming 'clogged up' with random email DLs for each of the plans created.

    There should be an option to NOT create a DL when you create the plan.

  12. The name of the planner, and corresponding email address,need to follow the same naming rules as Office365/Outlook groups to prevent clashes

    The name of the planner, and corresponding email address,need to follow the same naming rules as Office365/Outlook groups - i.e. prefix and suffix strings etc to prevent clashes. We simply could not allow users to create their own planners for fear of the email address clashing with a user address later down the line.

  13. read only

    It would be useful, eg for Management Reporting to be able to provide someone with Read Only access across all Plan's you are in/own

  14. Frequently asked to sign in

    When using office 365 planner I'm asked to sign in again. The life of the authentication token seems to be quite short. If you've left the planner screen idle for a little while you have to enter your email address again.
    Please make the sign in life time similar to the other office 365 apps.

  15. Delete Plans Completely

    Supposedly there is a way to delete a plan entirely, however I have not yet been able to find that. Hoping that it becomes a possibility as my dashboard is filled with projects that ended over a year ago :(

  16. Need to see some counters (Status) of each Plan in the Planner hub screen

    At this moment, we see All plans in the Planner hub screen, but don't know which the plan has something updated until click on each Plan to see details.

    If there are some counters i.e. Status, %Completed, In Progress,... it is easier to monitor the projects or plans.

  17. Allow Group Admin to lock-down who can add, delete and assign tasks

    Allow Group Admin to set permissions for members of the plan -
    E.g. Who can add/delete/assign tasks.

  18. Don't automatically create a Group with a Plan

    I want to be able to create Plans that correspond to existing SharePoint Team sites.

    Therefore I do not want to create another similar named Group at the same time, this is just confusing for users, (and also I don't want them saving documents in this new Group instead of the Team Site.)

  19. Task Creation by Drag & Drop

    Ability to create new planner task by dragging an email or conversation message onto a "Task" icon. Doing this would open the task form. And the message should be an attachment to the task as context. This is how it works in outlook.
