  1. 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…

  3. Allow on-premise Exchange & Guest users to comment on tasks

    We recently purchased a premium O365 account so we could use Teams with Planner. We've discovered that the comment section for tasks only works for online exchange users. Our entire organization uses on-premise exchange. Likely very few of our vendors and clients have an online exchange. This makes Planner 100% useless. As of right now we are looking into an alternative to Planner.

    Please allow guests and non-online exchange users to comment on tasks.

  4. planner hub compact view

    I like the graphs, but now that I have many dozens of "Plans" I need a hub view that is more compact to see more on one page more easily. The graphs are less important for me.

  5. chart view in planner hub

    Add the chart view from individual planners to the hub. This would allow someone managing multiple projects to see if there are too many tasks assigned to one staff member

  9. It would be great if the task option from outlook (flag) would sincronice with the planner

    When marking an email with the flag it gets transfer to the task apps, however it would be great to also integrate to the planner, so you can reflect offenly task there.

  10. Add notes to bucket

    I just had an idea. I don't know if it's already possible, but looking at the way we want to use MS Planner in our company it would be more efficient if it was possible to add notes to a bucket.

    We want to use MS Planner for our weekly management team meeting and we've already started managing the group tasks that are assigned and discussed during the meeting. For each meeting we create a bucket so that we know which tasks are created during that meeting.

    We also use the Notebook feature to create the minutes of the management…

  12. Display the status of "My tasks" in charts

    When using the "my tasks" function, it isn't possible to display the tasks in charts, unlike the tasks in a plan.
    It would be good to be able to see how many of my tasks are late, in progress, not started, similar to the plan charts.

  15. notification of changes since last at the Hub

    At the Planner hub, have a small red number in the corner notifying you of the number of changes made since you last looked at the plan. When you click on the plan, then have the red notification numbers on the buckets that were updated.

  16. Matrix organization of Dashboards

    I would like have a visualization pattern which has the "typical kanban status" on columns and other type of categorizations in rows, let me say projects. It would be useful to have a complete view of the status of my job in one

  17. add attached links to the exported excel

    We all need to have a firm backup plan for our online applications that we use. Having this feature helps us to build a planner easier with less hassles.

  18. Filter view for Team plans

    Currently in planner hub I can only view my favourite plans, recent plans and all plans.
    In addition to this, it would be great to be able to filter on all plans associated with a Microsoft Teams team.
    For example, if I was part of a Team called Marketing, which had various channels and Planners for different projects, it would be great to see all the Marketing Team Plans as a filtered view.

  19. Summary of comments report

    Summary of comments report

    Be able to run a report for all comments made on each task in the last X number of days. This would be very helpful when trying to use planner as an agenda for weekly meeting so we could review the progress made on each task without having to go into all tasks, or some tasks that had no comments made that week per say.

    Thank!

  20. My Tasks view could show the bucket name in the task card

    Currently the My Tasks view shows cards for the users assigned tasks. These cards show the Task name and the Board name, but not the Bucket name. This would be helpful information to show.
