  1. Task notification email should contain group name

    When I receive a notification in my inbox telling me I've been assigned a task I would like to know which group it is for without having to open the task every time

  2. have an "assign to me" button

    Have an "Assign to me" button - Like in Jira, many stories that I interact with, especially on my daily personal plan, i want to assign to myself so i can track them along with other project items. It would be nice to be able to assign a task to myself with a single click, rather than having to sort through the team members

  7. Improve the concept

    This is too clunky to use. It lacks key functionality for: 1) notifying users of upcoming or past due tasks, 2) notifying users of tasks assigned to them, 3) sorting tasks by what is due next, 4) adding branching that would push a panel from user to user as subtasks were complete, 5) sub task dead lines. In order to effectively use this in Teams (as was the intent) it would require a half time employee to maintain it.

    I can't utilize it until there are some improvements.

  9. The 'create new plan' interface does not show the 'usage guidelines' link that the 'create new Office365 group' interfaces do.

    The 'create new plan' interface does not show the 'usage guidelines' link that the 'create new Office365 group' interfaces do. Given that creating a plan creates a group, its important that the same guidelines are shown

  11. Hide the "+ Planner" button when groups creation is disabled, or edit the error message

    When creation of O365 Groups is disabled for all users, the button on the planner to create a planner is still available. This is also on other services. We are working on a provisioning engine and we would like to see the button of creating a planner removed. Or the option to edit the message received that creating groups is disabled.

  12. Container visibility / editability for each user or group

    It could be userful, for each container inside the plan, enstablish if the container is visible / editable by which users.

    If you will add the possibility to creare group of users inside Planner, we could also decide if the container is visible / editable by which Groups

  13. Sign up for alerts per release not team

    We have multiple releases going on for a team (i.e. our Sales IT team handles releases for CRM, our contract app, etc.) because the team works on multiple apps. I want to receive email alerts (as tasks are added, etc.) for the releases I'll be part of and not get them at the Group level. So I'd like to sign up for them at the release level. Would also be nice for alerts to automatically go to those with at least 1 task in the release so you don't even have to sign up for it. Then allow anyone that…

  14. Uploading files and attaching to cards is broken

    Adding an attachment to a card/task using the file upload no longer works. I have tested this on Chrome and Edge from my desktop PC and on my mobile (which was not connected to the same network/behind same firewall to rule out security issues) using Chrome.

    Adding an attachment using an existing file within Sharepoint works fine.

    The "navigate to OneDrive" fix found in some articles doe **** appear to apply to this issue.

    No errors are displayed in a timely manner. If you wait long enough, an error is displayed at the bottom of the page which does not…

  15. Planner is not allowing me to attach Files?

    Planner is not allowing me to upload Excel Files? It will show the file in the Upload area (Shaded), and the Status bar never indicates Uploading/change in status. If I leave the page, and re-enter the Planner...the file is not there. Any ideas?
