    • Move bucket hotkey

      Currently a bucket is moved to the right or left when holding control button with an arrow key. This happens accidently when I move the focus position of the cursor. I suggest removing this hotkey feature since why would you move the whole bucket using a hotkey instead of dragging it?

      • Not showing not selected buckets - not even the headliner

        When you use the same Plan for more than one channel you can select the buckets. But the other buckets are still seeable.
        I want to make one Plan and different buckets but select or deselect them in different channels (and don't want to see buckets in channels where I don't want so see them)

            • Backlog bucket, change status automaticly

              We have one bucket to use as a backlog. When I remove a card from the backlog to another bucket, change the status automaticly to "in progress"

              • Ability to link Task Card to another Plan Bucket

                Ability to link progress of task card to another plan's bucket completeness. This is useful when using buckets as sprints, when a plan depends upon another projects particular sprint to be complete (all cards within that bucket set to complete).

                Similar to https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/12870720-link-a-task-card-to-another-plan, however I believe this requests a link to the overall plan and not individual buckets.

                    • Ability to assign a Task to more than on Board.

                      We have multiple teams each with their own board, but sometimes a task relates to more than one team. The ability to have that task show on all boards its related too would be awesome!

                      • Team Assigned Tasks view - Individuaks

                        if I am a member of a team within an organisation, I would like to be able to see the tasks on all projects assigned to each team member. This could be a view similar to the group by "assigned to" function but across all projects so that I can see on one board everyone's assigned tasks.

                        • Comments field of a task visible in Plan View

                          When you see the open plan in bucketview, each task is shown as a card. On that cardwe are able to show the open items of the checklist of that task. It would be nice if the latest comment of that task could also be made visible on that card. It would be able to see why the next item on the checklist can not be completed, or why somethings are taking so long.

                          • Provide view to see all tasks assigned to another "Member" from multiple "Plans"

                            I essentially want to create "My Tasks" made viewable to me for other "Members". This would help me for managing those "Members" who are my direct reports. It would allow me to see all tasks assigned to my reports across multiple Plans.

                                • Please make bucket and horizontal scroll bars more visible

                                  Please make the bucket and horizontal scroll bars more visible. The grey-on-grey contrast with the background is hard to see on some monitors and the narrowness of the bars makes the scroll bars difficult to find and hover over.

                                  It would be really useful if there was some persistent indication of where the bucket scrollbars can be found to make finding them with the hover easier.

                                    Fix the bug or advise me what I am doing wrong. Repeated from title Bug: I cannot see any information in Schedule View under any sort option for 'Group by' all sections are blank, but this works fine in Chart view.

                                    I cannot find anyway of submitting this through Support - which is another issue in itself.

                                    • Customize the layout in the schedule view

                                      It would be great if you could hide Sat and Sun on the week view since most work teams wouldn't have tasks on these days and it takes up valuable space - would also be great if you could have label colours show up.

                                      • Customize the layout in the schedule view

                                        It would be great if you could hide Sat and Sun on the week view since most work teams wouldn't have tasks on these days and it takes up valuable space - would also be great if you could have label colours show up.

                                        • Add an option to cards that have not recently been updated

                                          Add an option to highlight old cards (cards that haven't been updated in the last 2 weeks, for example) as a reminder to check on their status or follow up.
