  1. Folder for attachments

    Currently attached files just drop into the overall SharePoint drive on the team folder. We would like for them to be more organized within an Attachment Folder, or the ability to control where they go within the team SharePoint.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. "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.

  7. Ability to paste a screenshot directly from clipboard

    By pasting Cnrl + V should automatically upload the screenshot as a file to a dedicated folder whithin the Office group and link it to the task within Planner

  9. 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.)

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. Only the Administrator of a plan should have right to delete or reassign tasks

    Only the Administrator of a plan should have right to delete or reassign tasks. Now, if the plan Administrator assign a task to an user, he/she can delete the tasks, and this action of deleting tasks should be only allowed to plan Adminsitrators

  15. Configure Timeout settings

    I frequently get logged out when working with Planner after some time of inactivity - this is different from the rest of the Office365 suite. While having to login again is not only annoying, I have also lost content because of this. On more than one instance I was still able to create tasks, only to find them gone after having to login again.

  17. Printing Plan

    I'd love to be able to print the plan itself, preferably in a timeline manner for reference and reporting.

  18. Link tasks between different plans

    It would be extremely helpful if you could create a task in one plan and have it duplicated in a separate plan(s), and only needing to update the task in one place.

    Example. I create a task in Plan A. I duplicate the task in Plan B. When I make any changes or updates to the task, it updates in Plan A and Plan B.

  19. Provide feature to add Hours/Days as part of Task

    Provide feature to add Hours/Days as part of Task. And allow to use the information in Charts, Exporting to Excel. I am hold up with full fledged implementation due to the shortcomings of Task Duration in a Task.
