  2. "Task assigned to you"

    when a task is assigned, it sends an email but nothing makes it clear that a task is assigned.
    Having the subject of the email start with the following "you have been assigned a task" and a link to directly to that task would help to follow up.
    A priority field to complement that information would also make sense all project tasks require priority levels.

    thanks

  8. Organizing plans into folders

    When you have a lot of projects (plans) in progress, it can be difficult to find the one you're looking for... Therefore, being able to create folders would be useful for sorting your plans by topics.

  9. When creating a new plan, there needs to be a way to see the Plan Description without having to edit the plan.

    When creating a new plan, you have the option to include more info in the "Plan description." This could be very useful for our company, because a lot of our projects have similar names, so the Plan Description is important. However, after inputting the Plan Description, I can't see it anywhere when I look at the plans I've created, unless I click the three little dots, and choose to "edit plan." Also, if I don't input any info in the Plan Description, then Planner automatically populates the name of the Plan into the Plan Description. This doesn't make sense. There…

  11. Planner tasks created in a subchannel of teams

    Planner Tasks that are created in a team subchannel are not visible as a subplan on the planner Website. That would be very helpful

  13. Allow facilitators, team leads, or functional managers view status for their teams

    As a means to ensure effective execution and awareness of performance and issues across plans, the hub should offer the option to allow facilitators, team leads, or functional managers to view the status of their respective teams or functions.

  18. There is no way to move completed plans off of your hub.

    I have some plans that are complete.My choices are to delete it forever or leave it there to clutter my hub. Why not at least have a "Completed Plans" tab on the left, and let me drag completed ones there to refer to if needed.

  20. Add a link from the Plan OneNote / files SharePoint site to the Plan itself. (no easy navigation back to the plan at the moment)

    When in the OneNote (or files / Sharepoint site) created when adding a new Plan, there is no simple navigation to get back to the plan itself.

    For instance, the usual navigation back to the homesite from a OneNote is the title at the top...but this only brings you back from the Plan OneNote to the Plan SharePoint site. Which itself has no direct link back to the Plan itself (the board with the cards).

    So browsing back to the plan is impossible - you have to type in the 'Hub' and then click on the plan, and copy the…
