  2. Add "fake" members without any access

    I have 20 consultants who are in different places in the world but I do not want to give all access to Planner so I want to be able to create fake members (with no access to Planner) for my own purpose witch will give me a better control/overview of each project and in what phase we are in. Thy work on independent projects for my company. I would like to create fake users that I can update during the work process. I handle all communications with my consultants through Skype and they are only responsible for one project at…

  4. Name update

    If the account holder name in Office 365 is updated, the name is not updated in Planner. This issue should be addressed and the name should be editable or should update to match

  7. Here are several ways:


    • time line

    • sort by due date

    • filter by who its assigned to

    • filter by category

    • stop buckets from going left - vertical list is better

    • list view not just board view

    • easier to edit than to click in, not easy to see the board history.

    • Let the board itself have its own page

    • cannot add notes to tasks

    its far to basic at the moment to be able to use in a business setting where you have complex buckets which require many tasks. Most importantly you want to be able to schedule tasks but you can only do that on…

  8. Better design for the screen with shows the circle with status, the bars with names en numbers of task and the tasks

    By using the graph screen (for example: fullscreen) the columnwidth of the circle with status and the columnwidth names and numbers of tasks is too wide. The tasks itself has a too small columnwidth. In my opinion the last column must be wider.

  12. Links to OneDrive .url documents should open url in browser not download

    If you create a OneDrive link document (.url) and link from a Planner Task, when you click on the task link, browser try to download .url file instead of open it in a new window or tab.

  15. As a teacher I need to assign the same set of tasks to several different teams.

    I have several teams that are working on the same set of tasks (groups of students working on a long term project). I need to be able to copy plans, or at least individual tasks, otherwise I would have to re-write each plan and all of its tasks several times, every year which is a real time waster.

  16. Custom Planner

    Include mandatory ancestor property (YES or NO) in the checklist
    Allow the creator of the plan to add progress
    Do not allow or signal that there is already a demand with the same name
    The user can only see the tasks that have been assigned to it.
    Filter tasks by user
    Display on-screen quantity and demand graph per user
    On graph when clicking the user refresh the screen with all the demands assigned to the user or the selected users or all
    When you change the Group Refresh Page options

  18. error message placement

    In a recent update you moved Error Messages to the bottom of the screen. This is frankly insane. How many people do you know who look at the bottom of the screen? Please move them back into an actually visible location again.

  20. New Planner Update

    Let me first say, the planner has worked very well for me, and I have based a lot of my project management and tasks on the planner, and its pipeline based construction.

    But the new update of the planner is making it run very bad. The individual sliding project pipelines was a good idea, but its so slow!

    I use the planner on a daily basis, and these slight changes to the way it moves have only slowed down my process's. The sliding of cards from one pipeline to another, barely works. The updated look was not needed, change of…
