  1. Import teams, projects and tasks from asana

    We are currently on asana, but feel that particularly the missing support for Onedrive at asana is a key feature that's missing. So we would like to move over to Microsoft Planner - but there seems to be no import functionality?

    I'd love to see import functionality from asana. From a full-featured integration to simple JSON import - everything would be a step forward.

  2. Uploaded files to Task should be places in corresponding folder in Files

    When uploading a file to a Task (to the Groups Library in SharePoint) they are placed in the root-folder.

    Would it not be better if they would to be placed in a Folder named after the Bucket to keep them more organized.

    Also, if you later move the file to another folder or rename it the "link" from the Tasks should be updated to reflect the change instead of break is it does currently.

  3. Integrate with SharePoint...give me something

    We manage 100 projects in SharePoint online and expected that this would be something we could add to those projects. Basically I want to go into a project site and "create a plan" or "create a bucket". The documents should link to a library on that sub site...

    Something...anything...

  4. API so I can sync with TFS

    I was looking to sync the board with TFS but need a API to do it. Is there a BE API for this or should I reverse engineer the AJAX calls.

  6. Stop confusing people between office 365 group and Plan

    Office 365 Group is a group, not a plan. And a Plan is a plan, not a group. User can create as many plan as they want, personally. When they want to share with a group, then the plan can be accessed from the group. It's simple.

    Currently, the way that you are connecting Plan and Office 365, you are destroying user experience and make the whole system unsuable.

    Please distinguish them clearly as there are many confusing scatter around the uservoice:

  8. Integrate Planner charts with power BI dashboards

    As Power BI is an excellent tool for businesses to understand their data it would be amazing if the dashboards could feature Planner Charts to report on the progress of the plans without having to create separate tracking and reporting tools. By simply having the ability to add the linked chart would provide a huge value to the business and office 365 integration.

  11. Improvements for MS Teams integration

    Timestamped Comments you can add comments to regular plans, but the ones in Microsoft Teams doesn't suport for adding comments.

    Search: It would be nice to be able to search tasks within Microsoft Teams

    Templating tasks: Trello allows you to template things like checklists so that common tasks can be created quickly.

    Mentions: It would be nice to be able to @Mention other employees within a Task.

  15. Integrate Planner Tasks and Sharepoint Lists

    We use a lot of SharePoint Lists for getting work from across the business. Currently, I can get a new SharePoint List Item to Create a new task in Planner however it would be great if it was more integrated so that the Task gets all the info from SharePoint and changes to the Task also update the SharePoint item

  17. Integrate with Outlook - Assign tasks through Outlook.

    Planner needs to be integrated with Outlook. I'd like to be able to drag Outlook items into Planner and have Planner items show up in Outlook. Be nice to coordinate alerts and To-Do items.

  19. Make planner tasks crawlable by sharepoint search

    We should be able to search for all Office 365 tasks from the sharepoint search engine. Right now we can't crawl planner tasks. It should be defined as a task content class to be able to have specific queries on tasks at least in plannner/SharePoint (normally should include Outlook tasks, ms project, wunderlist)
