  1. Mini-sub boards

    Let's say you have a big program that takes on multiple different projects. You would like to track each project as a sub-board that rolls up to the bigger board

      • Increase the number of participants for one task.

        Please increase the number of participants for one task. Make sure you can give them much more.
        I work at school, my team of teachers is more than 50. Restriction of the participants prevents the whole team from engaging.
        And if you use the whole school then it's about 400 students.
        Будьласка збільшіть кількість учасників для одного завдання. Зробіть щоб їх можна будо дадавати значно більше.
        Я працюю у школі, в моєму колективі вчителів більше 50. Обмеження учасників заважає задіяти весь колектив.
        А якщо задіяти всю школу то це близько 400 учнів.

        • Ability to set/show Task Image

          Yes, like Trello. This would allow for Plans/boards to become more visual for Team collaboration.

            • better way to suggest feature requests. Duplicate suggestions/feedback on the same issue.

              I'm not sure how to get this resolved, but scanning this forum, I see dozens of the SAME feature requests BUT on duplicated posts, which will NOT get the VOTES necessary for the FEATURE request.

              Example, there's a MAJOR flaw in Planner where a user who is assigned a task can DELETE the task! If you search for the feature request to prevent this, you'll see dozens. Each of them have votes. When you add them all up, you'll get hundreds of votes, but because it's scattered, you'll not implement this feature because you think it does NOT have enough…

                • Enable grouping asks in the "planner hub" window

                  I wish I could choose multiple "plans" (choose a few or just choose all) and then show all their tasks grouped by the way I choose.

                  For example: Sometimes I just want an overall view of all tasks grouped by who it was assigned to (and not to go into each plan)

                  If two plans have a similar bucket (like "To Do") you could have the name of the plan as a headline to diffrintiate.

                    • Bring back the link to Notebook in Planner

                      This seems to have been removed with the latest update. Some of our users do not have Exchange Online, which means they cannot directly access the O365 Group associated with the plan. As going via the group is now the only way to reach the Notebook this means that some users can no longer access the Notebook.

                      • Create "Add New Bucket" tab at the start of page

                        shouldn't have to scroll all the way to the last bucket on my board to see "add new bucket" tab

                          It doesn't make sense, if I'm trying to reduce my email load, to have to subscribe to an improvement idea to be able to support its development. I should be able to vote for an idea without subscribing.

                                Currently when you drag a task to another column it often freezes the app, doesn't move columns, or ends up in the completed tasks section of the new column. Please fix this behavior! (Win10, Chrome)

                                      • End user chooses default boards view

                                        I am a salesperson for an IT Managed Service Provider and I enjoy using Planner for my personal TO-DO list. The one suggestion I have is:
                                        1. End user should be able to set a default view or "group by." i prefer to see all my tasks grouped by status, for example.
