  2. One task in the same projects

    Allow two tasks at the same time to be in two different projects, so comments and updates could be received in both projects.

  3. Matrix User/Activities/Calendar to have a better view of resources/availabilities

    Should be great to have a view of assignements/unassigments based on a calendar (vertical) and one column on the right side for each resource. possibly with detailed (Single Plan) and full (all or a selection of them) view.
    Actually we are managing this kind of view with excell, but should be great to have it integrated in this great tool to have all integrated with O365 capabilities

  4. Need to add one more stage after task is completed like "Verified" or "Approved".

    Need to add one more stage after task is completed like "Verified" or "Approved". So manager can follow just finished tasks and approve them.

  6. Use SharePoint (or Nintex) workflows to create Planner tasks

    We'd love to create Planner tasks generated by form-based workflows originating from documents stored within SharePoint document libraries. For example, users can start a workflow from a SharePoint file which displays a custom form (think checkboxes and drop-down menus) to create a Planner task for a specific user(s).

  7. Get your Technical Support staff trained up before releasing.

    I'm an Office 365 ProPlus user, it was explained to me from the first technical support staff that I talked to that you are having issues with the roll-out but there is a work around.
    I was transferred 4 times because NO ONE knew what planner was, I even had one technical support staff member tell me she didn't know what Office 365 ProPlus was.
    Needless to say I gave up trying to install your product because I'm not in the mood to be passed around from support staff to support staff because they haven't been trained properly.

  9. Hyperlinks in Comments

    Typing a URL in a comment does not render the URL as a hyperlink when the comment is saved. It would be much more user-friendly to render these as hyperlinks.

  12. User experience for delete the plan should be improved!

    Instead of giving the option to delete the plan in Edit menu for plan, it should be given directly accessible like where the 'Add to Favourites' is located. It will improve the User Experience of the service.

  13. Apply Group name Strategy to Planner

    We have a group name strategy for Office 365 groups. This strategy should restrict planner creation too.

  14. If a plan is deleted, all assigned tasks should be deleted, too

    At present they stay with the assignees, and the assignees can't delete them, which sucks.

  15. Support markdown notation for description fields

    It would be great if .md (Markdown) notation, like in https://msdn.microsoft.com/Library/vs/alm/overview/reference/markdown-guidance, would be supported for text description fields for tasks, plans, buckets and other objects

  16. Option to disable features of the Planner Groups

    Option to disable features of the Planner Groups as Notepad, files, calendar etc. It can simplify the use in case of simple projects and eliminate redundancies as Planner Notepad vs. Sharepoint Sites Notepad, Planner Files vs. Sharepoint Sites Files

    In which one we should put the information? Please, eliminate redundancies...

  17. Option to create custom fields for tasks

    How it works: In the planner settings, you can create and customize the field and then select which projects it will be available, including the "all projects" option. Each task created now will have the new custom fields avaliable inside the card.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    We’d like to add custom columns to Planner, but don’t have anything planned at this time. We’re working on three big initiatives that are landing later this year (stay tuned!) and will likely start work on recurring tasks soon after.

    Please continue to vote as we utilize UserVoice heavily to order our product backlog and will adjust regularly if things change!

    Thanks again for your patience and feedback,
    The Planner Team

  18. SEPARATE ACTIVITIES LOGS FROM COMMENTS

    Keep log information hidden. It should appears only if we select a button to display the log and even then, it appears organized and separated from the task comments.
