    For now when i have over 50 plans it is really hard to find correct one.
    In android app plan searching is possible but on web don't.

  5. 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.

  6. schedule view in planner hub

    Please add a schedule view in the planner hub similar to that in each planner. This would allow manager of multiple teams to see all the tasks in one schedule view

  7. Add Bucket due dates to task

    It would be nice if you could add a due date for every bucket available in the plan to a task. That way the task would turn red if the bucket due date is not met.

  9. Planner Hub: exclude completed tasks from circle

    I think the following could be improved:
    - when looking a "Planner hub", I see my favourites as circles
    - the circles are supposed to be an indication on the state of the project
    but:
    - when I have a project with very many completed tasks, nearly the whole circle is green.

    For example, I might have a long ongoing project in which I have completed hundreds of tasks. I have three "not started" and 1 late.

    The circle is all green with a small yellow and red wedge.

    It is my opinion that it would be more helpful if…

  12. Group By Stucked

    Evertytime you browse the Plans, the hub shows de "Group By" option set in "Bucket" instead of the option you set before, So you have to click on group by every single time you acces a Plan.

  14. 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.

  15. More hub views

    Offer different hub views: perhaps a gantt view? (i.e. one project per row so user views all tasks over time at a glance)

  16. 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

  17. Change Plan Colors

    I'd like to be able to choose the color for each of my plans. If you could provide a small chart or variety of options. (In a similar way google calendar allows you to choose colors for individual calendars). OR the ability to upload a photo instead of a color. I currently have 6 plans and all of them are either red or gray.

  18. Gantt Charts out of the Planner to show dates & the people assigned as responsible

    Need a function to allow certain projects to be placed against the timeline on Gantt chart as a download or view, I see the comment below and I have voted but it doesn't have the timeline when the idea was posted along with all the other ideas and how fast is this in the process of being looked at .... Many thanks (28.3.18)

  19. Show completed tasks in scheduler with Green color instead of crossed off line.

    If task is marked completed, it disappears from the schedule which hinders the future planning process based on previous task and estimated timeline. It also takes away the ability to quickly move between dates on which specific task was completed. If planner can provide with the ability to retain the completed tasks on schedule with green color, it would be a great functionality. Thanks!

  20. Turn Progress to PDCA

    Progress currently allows for only 3 phases "Not Started, In Progress and Completed", this is not sufficient for most business practices as any task should have 5 phases:
    -Not Started
    -Plan
    -Do
    -Check
    -Act
