    • Sort Plans in Planner hub

      Groups are automatically sorted when browsing Groups. Add drag/drop or alphabetical sort to Planner Hub, or at least default sort them alphabetically.

      • Add Planner Hub icon to the Outlook Group menu

        Most of the Office Planner features are available via the Group tab in Outlook with one major exception - an option to access the Planner Hub. To view this you have to use the O365 Planner app or go to tasks.office.com. Having it available directly from within Outlook would be a great enhancement!

        • Grouping Plans

          As the Manager of a department I would like to group plans e.g. by department

          This would allow the MD or Exec Team to then see what the business is working on by group/department.

          Groups would then have admin members, working members e.g. Marketing Team and view only members e.g. Directors

          • Add ability to group Plans on the Panner Hub

            Need to add the ability to group Plans on the Planner Hub. Currently there is an All Plans and Favorite Plans group but it would be nice to be able to create other user-defined groups for Plans as well to better organize the Plans.

              • Track across projects at a portfolio level

                Utilize the tool so that all work groups in an organization can have their projects tracked so that there is no need for a separate PPM tool.

                              • Create folders for plans

                                It'd be nice to be able to sort plans into bigger "buckets" -similar to the way we sort and keep track of files in windows. Finished plans could go in the "Finished" bucket, plans that get cancelled or postponed could be put in their own buckets as well. I guess it'd be nice to sort plans by status: New, In Progress, finished, etc.

                                • Rearrange Tiles - Resize Tiles in the Planner Hub

                                  Currently, the Plan Tiles in the Planning Hub are static; the only option available is to remove from favorites.

                                  It would be nice to be able to rearrange - or drag and drop tiles, similar to dragging and rearranging tiles in the Windows 10 Start menu, or Office 365 App Launcher.

                                  Also, it would be nice to have the ability to resize tiles; small, medium, wide, etc.

                                  • Buckets in Hub to group plans to visualise roadmap for team and see real time progress in hub

                                    It will be good if we can have bucket for plans as well so we can group plans in buckets for e.g. Q1-2016, Q2-2016 buckets can have plans as planned in team road map and also see real time progress in hub based on tasks completion in plan

                                    • Give projects a color/category

                                      Please provide the ability to color the project as wished, so people can organize them. If possibile even make an option to provide a category to tasks. Maybe combine the two: assign a category, and give the category a color.
