  5. Add Member - Invitation Process Needs Improvement

    The invitation process needs improvement while adding members. Should include option to send link via custom email, or an automated email invite. Should also be immediate (currently seeing a lag). Lastly there should be increased options to create groups.

  6. Ability to sign up for email updates across all Planners at once

    Create the ability to sign up for email updates across all Planners at once. Having to go into each Planner and subscribe is tedious.
    Thanks!

  8. Deactivated users that have been assigned/completed a task or posted comments cause a "this doesn't look like a valid email address" error.

    We have noticed that Groups/Plans which have tasks that are either assigned/completed or have comments from now deactivated users produce the error "This doesn't look like a valid email address" within any of the tasks within that Group/Plan... The comments are also labelled as Anonymous...

    Just to be clear
    John Smith starts employment and has an Office 365 E3 license.
    John Smith is assigned a task (may complete or comment)
    John Smith leaves the company and account is deactivated/deleted.
    The Groups/Plans that John Smith were assigned tasks now cause the above errors.

    John Smith is no longer a member of…

  9. COLOR CODE THE BUCKETS! please.

    Color coding the buckets in Planner will really help my visual eye keep my various projects organized. If I really had it together, I'd use the same color to track e-mail to-do's and physical analog folders. Let there be color!

  12. Plan owner(s) with ability to set security on plan members

    Allow one or more plan owner(s), the project manager for example, to easily set member user rights / security of group members from the app GUI so they cannot move tasks between buckets, etc only update tasks assigned to them

  17. Do Planner has service level agreement?

    Do Microsoft ensure 99.9% availability of the service, like for SharePoint Online or Exchange Online? As far as I looked into newest agreement dowloaded from the linl below, I couldn't find any description.

  18. Add View preferences (settings )

    For example, Buckets :
    Settings should be there to View Buckets as list or tile (sortable by fields such as date)
    Same may apply for other features as well.

  20. Add Recycle for deleted tasks in Plan

    Currently there is no possibility to restore deleted tasks and no option to restrict deletion. Assigned person can delete task and say after that haven't seen it.
    In other case, deletion can be done by reason. Nevertheless, ability to restore is important.
    Both situations can be handled by old good Recycle for deleted tasks, placed under Plan options. With ability to restore task with all important info: attaches, comments, check list etc. Restore of bucket and labels is nice to have.
    Thanks, Ivan
