As there is not control of the creation of Plans/Groups/Teams
sometimes a dupicate group or team or plan gets created and the ability to move these plans to a different group (the correct one) is essential.
Our situation is this:
One team member has created a Team, another created a Group.
staff has used the planner from the group but some how used everything else from the team, (channels, site, files, notebook).
We want to move the planner that is attached to the Group and move it to the one with the Team. Then remove the duplicate group.400 votes
A workaround for this is that we’re currently rolling out improvements to the Copy Plan experience.
This improvement will include the ability to choose an existing group or team to copy the plan into. You’ll also be able to customize what gets copied over.
I will share another update when this is available to everyone through Planner’s web experience. Please let me know if this unblocks your scenario.
We need the ability to restore deleted buckets, in a situation where a team member deletes a bucket by mistake it's impossible to recover it, meaning that all the tasks added to that bucket are gone as well. There's not even a warning when you delete a bucket to deter the user from deleting it390 votes
It would be great to see more functionality with the checklist function in MS Planner. For example, being able to assign members to individual checklist items, due dates for each item, hours for each item etc.)325 votes
Being able to copy tasks is great, but PLEASE allow us to 1) duplicate / copy bucket lists and 2) Duplicate / copy entire plans (i.e., create a template. PLEASE!!!!!!!314 votes
Users have the ability to delete tasks without notification to the group. When a user deletes a task, it should be included in the notification (where the plan is enabled to send notifications).303 votes
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.293 votes

Enable the users to add Custom Fields. Please refer to Trello's "Custom Fields" add on.
Also, the Custom Fields should be exportable in the excel report which is planned to be developed in the feedback list.267 votes
I have come from Trello which uses images extensively as a visual reference. The is facilitated through a simple ability to paste images into boards. This is possible in Planner via Files/Attach but is very convoluted.267 votes
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.249 votes
Need multiple people assigned to a card to show there is collaboration on a project.247 votes
Would like to be able to print lists of tasks sorted in different ways: print a list of all Tasks in a Bucket or print a list of a member's Tasks. Sharepoint allows exporting tasks lists to Excel which I used to do to print lists to take to a site visit.221 votes
The ability to create a task in several planners and have it sync across them would be very useful. This way the users can have individual planners with all their tasks, created only for that planner or linked from project planners or department planners.
Cross team tasks, recurring tasks, tasks with multiple asignees etc can then easily be added to "views" specialized for specific things.220 votes
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.219 votes
To map out tasks with start stop
Option to view by swim lane (bucket / assigned)205 votes
We use buckets to denote priority (highest, high low) of tasks. When tasks are grouped by "Progress", I have to drag and drop to get tasks of the highest priority first. Would love to have default sort options like "sort by bucket" with this view. The sort order could either be set by the left-to-right order of buckets within the view "group by buckets", or could be set in a new dialog.204 votes
Would be great if buckets could be linked to a particular status and would automatically update tasks statuses as they are moved from bucket to bucket.
Bucket : Status
ToDo : Not Started
WIP : In Progress
Blocked : In Progress
Done : Complete
So as a task moves from ToDo -> WIP -> Blocked -> WIP -> Done the status will automatically update from Not Started -> In Progress -> Complete.202 votes
Enabling the Group by lable would be a good thing - so that the differing workstreams can be easily seen196 votes
Thank you for your feedback!
We’ve just delivered the ability to group Planner tasks by their label.
The Planner Team
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.188 votes
When inside of a Plan the default "group by" view is bucket. I'd like to be able to change the default view to "Progress" or have the ability to set a default to any of the view options.176 votes
