  2. Recovery for Group Data - too risky to use without this feature

    I really like Groups and Planner. Having Planner use Groups makes sense. But since Groups does not have disaster recovery for the data (calendars, doc libraries, etc. - it is too risky to use this Groups (and therefor too risky to use Planner) - until this key requirement gap is closed. Thank you

  3. Allow users to set their home page.

    I love the planner. How about allowing users the option to set a view as the "home" page? I'd love to set the charts page as my home page.

  6. Ability to tell who is subscribing to the plan

  8. Include link to board in introductory email sent to members

    The email message generated by Microsoft Planner includes links to the shared Notebook and OneDrive folder but not to the actual board itself. It really needs to include the link to the core part of the project.

  11. Allow documents to link from any OneDrive/Sharepoint account

    At the moment, we are limited with the Group files only. It's a pity because you can't always copy (or upload) every doc from another OneDrive/SharePoint location.

    We must be able to link a doc from personal OneDrive (with all his sharing settings) to a Planner's task.

  12. Top Level Overview of Plans

    It would be good for my Boss to be able to see things on a top level of all plans that are public in his team while team members would only see plans that they are assigned. Team members need to create the plans where the Boss would be an a member of all plans by default without having to be added each time a public plan from a Boss's team member creates a new plan.

  13. Public Plan Description

    If you receive a task from a plan by email you get no information about the plan itself. To understand in which context your task is, you have to read the plan description in the plan properties.

    So it might be a good idea to include the plan description in the members
    invitation or include a shortlink to the plan description in the task dialog or in the board.

  14. Publish plan at a given time

    It would be very helpful if you could define a plan first with all tasks and responsibilities to publish this plan at a given time to the members.

  15. Add a resource calendar to help show staff availability when allocating tasks

    It would be very useful to be able to see a Calendar view of resource availability when assigning tasks. This would prevent allocating a resource to someone who is on Planner but on Annual Leave. A great example of this in action is Resource Guru. www.resourceguruapp.com

  17. Ability to easily get a link for a specific task

    We collaborate in one-note, slack and other places. Its important to easily be able to link to specific tasks so there isn't ambiguity. its hard to get this link (need to look down in history).

  18. Wish that I didn't have to send emails everytime I assign a task to someone

    Just frustrating. As a PM across multiple teams, I wish that I could just create an item and assign someone for just me to see. I wish that I didn't have to send an email to people each time I assign them--honestly it's just super noisy and makes me not want to assign people! But I do want the ability to see what I've assigned to which people. I just don't expect my team members to also have to use this or care when I've created a new work item--they have their own work flows!
