  3. Assign or change assignment for multiple tasks at once

    Assigning more than one task to the same person is cumbersome as you must open each task individually. As a task creator or editor, I'd like to be able to select more than one task and assign or change assignment.

  4. 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

  6. 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.

  9. Make public plans discoverable

    Currently, there's no way for end-users to obtain an overview of all public plans, as -contrary to what the name implies- the "All Plans" section is in fact the "All MY Plans" section.

    If you know the name, you can find the related Group, but there's no way to go from the Group to the Plan.

  11. Dashboard, template plan with template tasks and completed checklists.

    I wish to save a plan as a template with template tasks that can be individually attributed and assigned to individuals. The template tasks should contain a completed checklist.
    These plans are under a main page with summaries and dashboards for all the plans below.

  12. Comment Notifications

    If someone adds a comment to a task, the person who created the task and anyone assigned to the task should receive an email notification in their inbox in the same way a person who is assigned a task receives an email notification.

  13. 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.

  14. User Defined Progress Descriptions

    Allow more control over the Progress setting on a task.

    For each plan / board the user should be able to manage the Progress stages allowing more control when tracking the state of a task.

  17. Delete Plans Completely

    Supposedly there is a way to delete a plan entirely, however I have not yet been able to find that. Hoping that it becomes a possibility as my dashboard is filled with projects that ended over a year ago :(

  19. Email notification sent to assignee on the planner tasks when comments are added

    When you have create a Task in Planner within teams or group and you assign those tasks out to other team members, there should be an option to send email notification to the assignee when comments are added.
