    • Add in "Followers" for tasks/task groups

      I believe that assigning a task should only be included on one person, so that there is always a certain individual that is responsible for a task. But it would be very helpful to have "Followers" of a task (or an entire task group/column) so that these people receive all the updates about a particular task, but don't have the responsibility of completing the task.

      • Filter My Tasks to enable strategic views

        As an individual is part of numerous projects their task list will grow and become unmanageable. If a task is set to be started in the future it should be removed from the My Tasks view or give the ability to create filtered views.

        The goal is to only give an individual the view into those tasks that are being worked on at the current time, Today. All other tasks will be out of site until the start time is reached or a pre-defined field such as 3 weeks before deadline.

          • Simple Reminder: "Remind me tomorrow"

            I'd like a simple button that says "Remind me tomorrow".

            Clicking the button on a card on a board, would simply remind me of it's existence tomorrow.

            Or some other user defined time if i wanted to set that up. Key here is keep it very simple, or i'll just go back to post-it notes.

              • Make it possible to plan tasks per hour

                A taks is not always a complete day (8 hours) but can also be 4 hours our 1 hour. Make it possible to adjust the amount of hours per task. By default 1 day.

                • Add Plans on a user level

                  It would be very nice for Individuals to have their own plans based off their individual tasks assigned to themselves. Instead of tying every plan to a group would it be possible that everyone gets their own Plan, then they can also join group plans? this would allow great integration with Outlook Tasks. Then with the addition of groups within outlook.

                    • Add a List view option?

                      Hello,
                      I am currently an Asana user. Do you have any plans to add a "List" view option in MS Planner? My team and I currently work in the "List" view of Asana. We tried the "Bucket / Board" view and did not like it. We would consider using MS Planner if you offered a "List" view to work from in your application.

                      Do you have any plans to add a "List" view option in MS Planner?

                      Thanks

                      JB

                      • Links in comments need to be clickable

                        When you comment a link, it is clickable in the e-mail you get but not on the card when you open it, so you need to select the text, copy and paste in the address dar so you can go to that link!

                        • Feature to auto assign tasks created by you

                          The ability to configure an auto assignment for tasks you create, maybe your the manager and want all your tasks auto assigned to your number 1 and they are tasked with re assignment. or you want all tasks created by you, assigned to you.

                          Right now I create tasks and have to go into each one and assign to me, so i can get an accurate view of all my open tasks.

                          thank you

                                    • Setting Task Colors

                                      You can set the label colors, but it would also be nice to be able to set just the background color of the task itself irrespective of the label colors. This could be used to quickly look at a set of buckets or the whole plan and see a color. The color could be to denote an assigned-to person, priority, category, etc.

                                      • Colour backgrounds - white on grey...really?

                                        Planner is about as visually exciting as watching paint dry.

                                        Please, as a minimum, provide the option to change the background colour of each board/plan. Could also do with the option of more labels and larger/clearer identification of those tasks with labels on them.

                                        • Make task color tags more noticeable

                                          A task can be assigned one of the six colors. However, the color tag is too small to be noticeable. Also, please show the label (or an option to show/hide labels).
