  1. Please allow for different view options beyond the clustered "boards"

    In Planner, currently you can group the tasks by Plan, Progress, Due date and Priority. In addition to having different grouping options, will you please add different view types? Please allow for different view options beyond "boards", including a listing of all tasks in a format similar to how Outlook displays emails or tasks? I find the "Board" display to be very difficult to easily find information within the different plans, and would like to be able to easily see the Tasks in a listing format.

  3. Planner board name always visible

    In Teams when I open the Planner app and click on the sandwich icon to get a list of all available planner boards I have access to, the name of the currently selected board is not shown anymore. It is visible as a path "[team]/[channel]/Planner" when the side menu is minimized.
    Please keep the path visible even when the side menu is not minimized as it helps orienting yourself when opening the Planner app.

  5. A general overview of assignments in Planner

    A project and team managers should be able to get an overview of assignments across plans, channels and buckets to individual persons and tags . Now they are, like anyone else within an organization, only able to view their own assignments, and filter by due dates, high priority and plans.
    Is it possible to add this function in Planner?

  6. I want to be able to have buckets appear at the far left of the main screen, rather than the far right.

    Have the add bucket option on the far left, instead of the right. As we have ended up with 25+ buckets, it makes it very difficult to move them and very inconvenient. Instead of scrolling, there should be an option to have the most recent buckets shown at the beginning, rather than having to scroll.

  7. My Plans from External Companies with My Own Company Plans

    I have created my own Plan, but I am also part of a Plan from another agency. I would like to see not only the Plans that I have created, but every Plan that I am part of outside of my own company (external Plans). This way I can see on a calendar, not only my companies assignments, but other assignments created by my clients.

  8. Search Feature

    PLEASE add a keyword search feature across all plans so I can search from the Planner Hub if I can't remember which plan a task is in

  10. Ability to store plans in folders, so they're not all in one giant view.

    For example, on SharePoint you can create folders and house documents within folders. Why can't you do this on Planner?

  11. Sort by Members view in Planner Hub

    Allow to sort plans in the Hub by Members in a Plan. It is impossible to run a team meeting with group members by looking at the Hub. Sort By: Members should be offered in the Hub for easy review of plans only relevant to certain members who are meeting

    Hello everyone, friends. I know how many gamblers there are now.

  13. IT Planning - Planner

    Provide an UX similar to Excel based planning, where we can customize our own fields. And integration of Timesheet booking etc, which will definitely add a value added to Planner and simpler UX in integrating it with Flows. Thanks

  15. Common Team Hub

    Combine multiple planners (from different teams channels) into one "General team hub" with the combined analytical views, currently only shown in the individual planners or individually.

    Would like to keep project specific tasks in separate planners for organization, but would like to have a common chart view to understand the full body of work.

    specific task -> bucket (project phases) -> planner (project specific) -> common chart & analytics (team based hub)

    Would like to see common analytics such as, while being able to also see the analytics on a project-to-project basis
    - how many tasks does everyone have throughout…

  16. Lost reference to buckets when grouping my own tasks from a team plan in my plan

    We use teams in our company and in this we use the Planner. All tasks, with assignment to buckets, are structured in the plan "Kanbanboard". If I switch to the plan "My tasks" in the Planner and group them by "Due date", "Status" or "Priority", my tasks lose the reference to the Buckets created in the plan "Kanbanboard". An adjustment would be great, so the reference to the buckets is not lost. At the moment, we include the bucket name in the task name. But this is very tediously.

  17. Show "items due in X" days as part of the Planner Hub ring visual

    Since there are already settings and notifications tied to 7 days out, it would be great to have the option to show "Due soon" or "Due within 7 days" as one of the categories in the ring chart alongside "late", "in progress", and "not started." So maybe "In Progress (due soon)"; "Not started (due soon)" as the new categories?

  19. How to wear?

    How you choose clothes? You use some lifehacks?
    Maybe you can recommend to me some interesting shoping instruments?
