  1. Make the dates in planner show up on the Calendar.

    When you set a task's date in Planner, it should also show up on your calendar. I can't see using Planner if it doesn't integrate into your calendar.

  2. Integrate / link Planner tasks to Project Online tasks and Planner plans to Project Online Summary Task

    Project Online does not have Agile views of its tasks (such as vertical lists in common agile task tools like Trello, Pivotal, Jira, and now Office Planner). The lack of agile-like boards for Project Online is a huge barrier to development teams, but exec mgmt. wants the rich reporting and resource mgmt. of Project Online. The lack of synchronizing Project Online to external boards makes managing very difficult.

  4. Planner conversation integration with Teams

    Please allow conversations happening at the Task-level in Planner to occur in Teams conversation (threaded) instead of the shared group mailbox.

  6. Microsoft Teams Integration Problems

    Microsoft Teams Integration Problems.

    When we add tasks to a Teams Project, we cannot add new ones from planner, but we can view them. Also the tasks added from Teams have reduced functionality. All very annoying.

  7. Use Plan as PowerBI data source

    Integrate plans directly into PowerBI for use as data source. Create charts, graphs, dashboards from plan due dates, completion dates, buckets, assignees etc. PowerBI always presents latest plan status.

  8. Create Permissions in Individual Project Buckets

    When using Planner to manage large scale projects, features that allow the assignment of individual or group permissions to each bucket within a project plan are very critical. Project tasks will often contain sensitive attachments but current permission levels only provide the highest level of permissions, allowing all group members to view all project tasks.

  9. Sync the outlook/o365 tasks with the planner taks so they're both the same thing

    I use the outlook tasks heavily because they're in my face all day long in outlook. It would be great to have the planner tasks there too

  10. Do NOT create a new mobile app. Integrate with Groups App instead.

    Do not fragment the mobile app space. Do NOT create a new app of Planner. Use Groups App to integrate instead.

    There already is a mobile app for Office 365 Groups. And Planner plans have a direct relationship with Groups. It would be great if Planner is integrated into that existing app. Groups app will have conversations, Files, Notebook, Calendar, and Plans.

  12. Planner and Teams

    Planner is a great platform to track the tasks. With the introduction of teams, its life easy for many of us.
    It should be great if the existing planner can be integrated in the teams. Also the Planner in the teams, there is no mention of who assigned the tasks and no way for to have a discussion on a specific task. To get an update or to have a conversation, we have to create a new conversation on the team.
    Hope to see the integration of these two faster

  14. Sort by due date within buckets

    When you assign a due date to a bucket have it set the due date of the tasks under the bucket.

    Leave the buckets alone, but have a way to sort by due date within the bucket, rather than put different buckets together

  16. Add WebHook feature, so I can integrate with other web services

    I wan to integrate Planner with Slack channel, to notify the channel that the task has been added or changed.
    In the scope of this, I do not need complexed APIs.
    Simply, I need WebHook feature.

  17. Implement a recycle bin for tasks and buckets

    Deleting tasks accidently can happen fast. I deleted some important ones and cant bring them back... Thats really a gamebreaker for Microsoft Planner.
