  2. Restrict Access to Assigned Plan or Bucket

    As of now, if a user is assigned to a task, they are automatically added as members of an entire plan, and all subordinate buckets.

    In events where buckets or tasks have some independence of one another, it would be great if members assigned to a given task were not automatically able to access all other tasks in the same bucket or all other buckets in the same plan.

  5. Keyboard shortcuts

    Need keyboard shortcuts to more quickly navigate planner. For example I would like to be able to hover on a card and press 1, 2, 3, 4, etc to quickly apply a label to a card. Would also be nice to have a 2-3 key press to filter cards by label, to search, etc.

  6. 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.

  8. 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)

  9. 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.

  10. Sort tasks by importance AND due date

    It would be great if you could sort tasks by date, but then also sort by importance. We juggle a lot of clients, and some are more demanding than others. It would be great as a manager if I could assign importance to tasks for my team.

  11. Deadlines for checklist items

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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).

  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

  16. Effort Estimations (in MD/Hours/ScrumPoints/etc.) incl. Charts

    Add fields to estimate tasks before working on it.

    E.g.:


    • Effort Estimation

    • Remaining Effort

    • Total Effort

    Would be good to create charts out of this values to compare the original estimated efforts vs. total effort

  17. Duplicate or template tasks, cards or buckets

    being able to duplicate or template tasks, cards or buckets would enable input of a workflow once and then when it reoccurs capturing on the plan would be quicker and easier. Reducing repetitive input.

  18. 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.

  19. Undelete

    It would be wise to add undelete somewhere as we just lost an entire plan somehow.

  20. It would be great if there was a planner desktop app.

    I love that Teams has a desktop app, it would be very useful if the Planner had a desktop app as well.
