  1. Voting on task importance

    We use planner to track bug fixes and it would be nice if users could up vote a card to show us it is a more important bug fix. Kind of like the voting we use in this forum :)

  2. Assign a task to more than 11 people

    Remove the planner limitation to assign a task to more than 11 people. Currently, if you try to assign a 12th person, you get an error message "You can't assign more than 11 people to a single task."

  4. Remove 1500 Tasks Created Per User Limit

    Remove the limit of a single user only being able to create 1500 tasks. When using an API to create tasks this will quickly be exceeded. There should be no limit.

  7. Make the Label Colors Changeable. Also allow for more or less labels

    As stated before me. The labels are too small when applied. The user should be able to add or reduce the amount of labels and the user should have the ability to change the colors of the labels.

  8. Effort estimate for each task

    It would be very useful if you enable a feature to update efforts for each task in hours. Normally in Agile WoW, effort for each task is calculated in hours

  10. The ability to assign individual checklist items and designate a due date within a task leading up to the overall task due date.

    A task has a due date, but within the task the checklist items can also have their own due date and assigned group member to complete all needs before the actual task due date.

  12. CRITICAL: Cannot recover deleted Tasks and files attached to tasks are also lost permanently.

    I accidentally deleted a task in Planner. The Task had screenshots and an agreement attached. Once the task has been deleted it does not go to the SharePoint recycle bin and the task, conversation, attachments are permanently deleted.

    Easiest fix is to place the task into recycle bin. Work around is to place all attachments in the file repository then attach to task. You still lose the entire task list and conversations thus making this a critical flaw.

  13. Pls add a 'mention' functionality when adding comments in Planner

    When I am adding comments on Planner Tasks then I want to be able to mention a specific employee who the task is assigned. This way I want the person to be notified.

  14. Ability to @ Tag a member of the Planner in the Comments of a Task.

    It'd be awesome if you could tag another member of the planner the way you can on Facebook/Twitter/etc in comments of tasks so that they can see it.

  15. Assign Task Lead

    The ability to assign a task to multiple people is a big improvement. BUT, we'd like to be able to designate a primary responsible (ie. a task lead.)

  17. Tasks for multiple users: Tracking of individual completion AND overall Task completion for tasks assigned to multiple users.

    When I assign a task to multiple users with the current functionality the task shows as completed as soon as the first person completes the task (in case I assign an identical task to more than one person) or completes their part of the task. This then moves the task to completed for all assignees and they neither see it in their "To dos" not do they get reminders that they have an open task to complete. In simple terms the current functionality is more or less useless.

  18. Print Tasks from Planner

    It should be possible to print the "tickets" or tasks from planner or at least export to pdf.

  19. Stop Planner creating a new email address for a private plan

    Planner is a great collaborative tool but also very useful to use just on an individual basis for own tasks and responsibilities. However, if you create any new plan, it automatically creates a new email address for that plan that is immediately visible in the organisations address book/contact list in Outlook. It would be useful if you had the option just to use planner without it doing this.

  20. "Your session has expired. Can you please sign in again? Sorry for any inconvenience" Box pops up every few minutes.

    It is very annoying to have the session expired box continually pop up - even when actively using planner and creating/updaing tasks etc.

    If this is to do with the auto refresh, can we at least have an option to turn the auto refresh off and manually sync.
