  1. Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards.

    Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also copy or move them to different Plans/Boards that you are a member of.

      Thank you for your feedback! We’ve improved the ‘Copy task’ dialogue so you can chose a different plan to send a copy of a task to! We’ll be exploring and expanding the ways in which you and your team can organize work in Planner, and hope this will be a helpful step forward.

      Here’s an article to learn more about this feature: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=872349

      Let us know what you think below! Thanks again for taking the time to vote for this idea.

      Cheers,

    • Task Templates

      Allow the creation of "Task Templates", which have a default set of properties (due one week from today, checklist items, assignment, etc.)

        Thank you for your feedback!

        In addition to delivering the ability to copy tasks (within and across plans), we’re now working on a feature to copy an entire plan. You can find updates and discussion for that topic here: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525/suggestions/14744172

        Regarding task templates in particular, we’d love to hear more about what you have in mind. If there’s a particular use or scenario in which you would find a task template handy – let us know below!

        Cheers,
        The Planner Team

      • View All Tasks Assigned To a Single Person

        Currently tasks can be viewed by Assigned To only within a particular Project. It would be helpful to search globally in Planner by Assigned To rather than having to review assignments Plan by Plan. This change would make evaluation of workloads much easier.

        • Function to add more Labels

          Sometimes the Labels are not enough, for example if you use it to tag different departments or functions

          • Copy a task

            Need the ability to copy a task, including the checklists and other items within the task. This would allow one to set up a template task, then create many tasks using that template task. This is a different request than the many copy suggestions that have been made already.

            • Time tracking for cards

              Track the time spent on each card by each member that worked on it would be very useful, further with reports to easily consume this information.

              Besides, if tasks were imported from Project (where work hours should be set by task)... time input could help to calculate the completion status.

              • Mark a task as a prereq or dependency on another task i.e. relationship

                Would be useful to set a task as requiring another task to complete before it can change state.

                • Hide (Archive) completed Buckets

                  When completing Buckets it would be nice to be able to hide them so they don't take up space, but you still keep them in the statistics.

                          Thanks for everyone’s patience on this item. We’ve completed our first item in this space. We now set Task Activity Email Notifications (Assign and Complete) to Off By Default. Plan/Group owners can turn this setting on/off in the “Edit Plan” dialog.

                          We still have additional work planned in this area such as providing more granular controls to which activities will trigger notifications and more control over cases where you’ve been assigned tasks.

                          Thanks again for the feedback!

                        • Add new progress descriptions

                          The progress descriptions are too simple. You should be able to create new ones, like planning, design, testing etc.

                            • I really loved it. But I am wondering if there can be multiple task owners for one task.

                              I created a task, which has two owners in actual. For example, there is a presentation being conducted by two members, I should be able to make two owners instead of one.

                                  Provision to user's to create more status-tags will help track the status.

                                    • More labels

                                      Please can we create more labels we have large teams now using Planner and they need more labels to distinguish projects

                                      • Multiple Boards Per Plan

                                        It'd be really nice to be able to add and manage multiple boards for a given plan. I'm thinking different boards for different work streams, backlog boards, building out boards for different sprints, etc.

                                        I think this fits better into the 1-to-1 Group-to-Plan setup that you've already built than the multiple plans per group request, though that would be a work around for this kind of thing if you can move tasks between plans.

                                        • Enable Grouping by label

                                          Enabling the Group by lable would be a good thing - so that the differing workstreams can be easily seen
