  2. Select tasks and sub tasks from a shared to-do list

    This will be a hot product for Microsoft. it is a good start and looking forward for the new functionalities.

    I have multiple projects with similar tasks. I want to be able to upload tasks and subtasks, create tasks and subtasks, and select from the list for a new plan

  3. Master Plan

    Hub view has all plans with their statistics on one page which is not the best layer of information. It would be nice to have a "Master Plan" where you can have other plans as "objects"/tasks to track their state and move them to different buckets for multi project management.

  4. Allow completed tasks to move to the next bucket

    Not all tasks are closed and done after they were "completed". It would be nice if they would move one bucket to the right after the assigned user has completed them for a more kanban-style processing of tasks from a Planner's point of view.

  5. Provide a view of all my tasks across plans in order of due date

    I'd love to set planner as my home page and see all my tasks that are due today/in order of date across all plans/projects.

  6. Be able to assign a role (name) to users

    Be able to assign a role to each user of the Planning board so that outsiders who view the board can easily see which role is working on the current idee. Like being able to quickly see if it is a tester, a product owner, a developer etc.

  7. add tags (with tag lookup)

    we have a sharepoint issue list for issue tracking that we use references to link to other lists by lookup. would be nice to be able to add a lookup column.. but tags would be great. and then sort or and search by tag.

  11. Different Favorite across 0365

    Right now if I favorite a group in Outlook so I can follow the emails closely it also adds it as a favorite in planner and OneDrive etc. Some of my groups don't use OneDrive or planner and so I get a rather useless list of favorites because they are not separate from each other.

  12. Voting on task importance

    We use planner to track bug fixes and it would be nice if users could up vote a card to show us it is a more important bug fix. Kind of like the voting we use in this forum :)

  15. change Planner descrption in French

    Presently, Planner description in English is about planning tasks. In French the present translation is meaning scheduling, which is inappropriate.

  17. Ability to fill out Task Details before creating a task

    Very simple, we should have the option to fill out description, add attachments, start date everything associated with a task before creating it.

    Currently you must create a task by giving it a name, then go into that new task to fill out the details and then assign it. Use a similar set up to calendar where you can click to create a quick calendar entry or double click to get the full set of options available.

  18. I need to be able to prioritise tasks so that I can focus on the most important and then being able to see those high priority tasks easily

    I may have several tasks across many buckets that are due around the same time. It would be good to be able to highlight high priority tasks and then have a view of those tasks so that I am sure I am working on the most important
