  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 the feedback! We have added this feature to our roadmap and are currently figuring out how to create the best experience around this. As we work on this, we’d love to hear more about your specific scenarios for moving tasks between plans, and what information from a task you would like to move over.

      As a first step, we started developing the ability to copy a task within a plan. This thread can provide an update on that feature: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14914122-copy-a-task

      We have also noted that some comments are interested in the same functionality for moving buckets between plans – we will keep this in mind and address this after we complete copying a task between plans.

      Thanks!

        Thank you for your feedback! We’ve delivered our first step, which is the ability to copy a task within a board.

        We are now exploring options for different template experiences. Here’s the thread to follow along with our conversation on Plan templates: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/11332998-provide-the-ability-to-create-plan-templates-with

        Regarding templates for individual tasks, we would love to hear more about specific scenarios you would use this. Any examples or ideas are appreciated!

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  • Enable Grouping by label

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

                        • 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.

                            There should be a Search tool so you can easily find a "Card"

                              • add dates to checklists

                                Ascribe a date to the items in a checklist, as at the moment there is only the task timeline that is available. It would help to breakdown the expectations associated with a task especially if it would be pointless to spread it across multiple cards.

                                • Support individual card colors in Board view to allow visual organization of different types of work.

                                  I recognize that the current label system has the advantage of assigning multiple colored labels to a card, but the visual indicator is too small to be useful in a busy board view. If I use color to indicate types of work flowing through the "Plan", it would be useful to scan colored cards and get a sense for what types of work were in process. It seems most online Kanban boards support this.

                                  • Enable drag & drop in Safari (Mac)

                                    Despite the fact that Safari is listed as the default Mac OS X browser for Office 365, drag and drop functions in O365 are generally not supported. In Planner, Safari (Mac) - at least for me - does not allow reordering of items in a checklist, tasks on the Board, or dragging a task from one bucket to another. All of these work fine in Chrome (Mac) and Firefox (Mac).

                                    • Assign checklist item to specific individuals

                                      This would be great to have when it's a bigger task that has several folks working on specific elements of it.

                                      • Allow re-ordering of tasks and items in checklists

                                        Drag and drop or some other method of changing order of tasks and items in checklists

                                        I like to think tasks higher in a list need to be done first, Planner doesn't have any method for prioritizing so at least let us manually move things around so they make sense, more generally allow tasks to be linked so we can optionally make some tasks dependent on other tasks, that order can be displayed either as an ordered list or better if the dependencies were visually apparent using some other means.

                                        • Add additional Agile statuses of 'Backlog' and 'On hold' to the Progress view to make it a KanBan

                                          Need to add additional statuses to create a KanBan view. The names don't have to be the same as this, but there needs to be something like Backlog, for unprioritised items that have not been reviewed, and On Hold or similar for those tasks that cannot be completed at the moment.
