  1. Recover the deleted plans

    There is no way to recover the deleted plans.
    Althought there is a warring information "You are about to permanently delete this plan and all of its task" to inform but it still a bad experience to user.

    It should have a workaround or a recycling bins to improve this issue.

  3. 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

  5. Deadlines for checklist items

    Would be good to have separate (optional) deadlines for each checklist item in the card.

  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.

  7. 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.

  8. Tag tasks as Private on a team planner

    It would be great if individual tasks could be tagged as private (or sharing could be managed specifically rather than just sharing all tasks in a planner with all members of that planner).

    I would like to manage all of my tasks on 1 plan, so it would be useful if I could add my Private tasks to a team planner then mark them as private so they can only be seen by me (or only me + my manager).

  9. Background color for tasks

    Please make color coding tasks available. There are not a lot of ways to make boards visually appealing and making different types of tasks more easily noticeable. In the end Kanban boards should be visual. Post-it note like task colors makes it easier to use boards.

  10. Desktop Notifications

    -Allow users to have the option to set desktop notifications when there are comments to a task rather than an email that is sent.
    -Allow users to have the option to set desktop notifications when due dates approach or item is due.

  11. Bulk edit tasks

    Provide a grid where I can edit multiple tasks in a bulk mode. This also enables copy & paste to tmport tasks (like a SharePoint grid view).

  12. 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 :(

  13. Drag and drop feature for attachments within a task

    It would be nice to have a drop and drag feature for attachments within a task instead of the upload option only.

  15. Need Richer Commenting UX


    1. Please add a keyboard shortcut to submit a comment after I've finished typing

    2. Let us edit my own comments (with audit history)

    3. Thread comment responses (like in teams)

    4. @mention users in comments

  17. add tags (with tag lookup)

    we have a sharepoint issue list for issue tracking that we use references to link to other lists by lookup. would be nice to be able to add a lookup column.. but tags would be great. and then sort or and search by tag.

  18. Keep record in Task history of when tasks are completed

    It would be helpful to be able to do the following:
    -automatically record when tasks are marked as "complete" and include date and person who marked task as complete
    - be able to organize completed tasks according to actual completion dates
    - integrate task dates onto calendar to show the task lifespan - start and end (projected/ actual)

  19. Hierarchy/Link between tasks (also from different Plans)

    The ability to link between tasks is important.
    For example, Management created a task. This will be converted to sub tasks on a sub team Plan.
