  1. Hierarchy/Link between tasks (also from different Plans)

    The ability to link between tasks is important.
    For example, Management created a task. This will be converted to sub tasks on a sub team Plan.

  2. No horizontal scrolling / no moving tasks

    Unfortunately Planner does not work properly on OS X neither with Safari nor Chrome.

  4. Consolidated view with all open tasks assigned to anyone

    As a project manager for many projects at any given time, it would be extremely helpful if there was a way to see all open tasks for all open projects ASSIGNED TO ANYONE in one view. Currently, it appears that the only way I can see all tasks across all projects is the "My tasks" view, which obviously only shows tasks assigned to ME.

  5. Proper support

    OK so I started using the task list and it crashes so I am no longer able to edit the card. Not much help that. Needs quite a lot more work before its usable.

  6. Allow linking of multiple documents at once

    When linking documents to a task, you can only do it one at a time. Would be great to be able to select multiple documents and link at the same time (whether linking via OneDrive or uploading new)

  7. Bug - subtask entries don't always work after adding text, hitting enter.

    More of a bug, but sometimes when entering subtasks, hitting enter to add the subtask does not work. Closing main task, re-entering text and hitting enter works. Sarai 9.0.3

  9. Be able to provide different permission levels within "Files" (doc lib), some users should not delete

    I want to use a "Plan" as a collaborative site but the manager does not want a few people to have delete permissions within "Files"

  10. Templates based on Scrum

    It would be really nice if Planner consisted templates based on project management frameworks like Scrum

  11. Task problems: deleting errors, editing errors, tag errors

    On the board view sometimes task just don't show up until I change the page and change back. On the board page when attempting to edit a task, the task pane will not stay open long enough to do anything. On the charts page I can open the tasks, but trying to delete gives me an error that I must be a member to delete, but I am a member and the admin already.
    Tags I created a few minutes ago have disappeared.

  12. UI issue - user name/initials

    The "My Tasks" menu on the left navigation pane has an icon next to it with user initials. The initial are backwards. My account correctly shows First Name and Last Name in the appropriate fields, but our display convention for the AD Sync'ed uses is to show full name as Last, First. I assume you are creating the icon based on the "full name" rather than taking the first characters from the First and Last name fields. If you use the first and Last name fields you will not have this issue.

    Hello! Since this is one of our top asks from users (and has been for quite a while), we wanted to provide a quick update here. As mentioned in our last update, our team has been heads down shipping some recent integrations, such as the Tasks app in teams and Tasks in Docs (both of which have initial versions rolling out now!).

    Recurring tasks (and the other top UserVoice asks) are still high on our backlog. I’ll provide updates here as this feature gets closer to being shipped! We also may use this forum to reach out to you, our engaged users, with design questions we have—so stay tuned if you’d like to help us bring you the best version of recurring tasks!

    In the meantime, it’s great to see so much active engagement here. We continue to iterate on our initial designs as we get more feedback from users,…

  14. Use Yammer-like features in this uservoice.com feedback site.

    I'd find it valuable to be able to like specific comments not just report inappropriate comments

  15. Hidden Plans

    I like the idea of creating a "hidden" plan; however, it doesn't hide the plan in "Groups" view. I don't want to broadcast my hidden plans throughout the organization.

  16. Images don't show up properly in the conversation

    When you email a reply to a conversation and your email contains images / pictures / graphics, it will sometimes show up in Planner as a big blank space with a little X at the top. Also if there are numerous short comments each with a tall image, they will overlap each other.

  18. User may just want to follow one bucket, not the entire plan

    Certain users will only care about hardware 'cards' not software 'cards' so they will only want emails broadcast to them whenever cards in a certain bucket have been edited. They don't want to receive all the emails for whenever anything in the grand plan has been edited.

  20. Keep it Simple

    This is a great addition to Office 365.
    The appeal of this tool lies in its SIMPLICITY, which must remain the focus for the developers.
