  2. Add the possiblity to link a new Plan to an existing group

    It would be interesting to have to possibility to link a new Planner to an existing O365 Group instead of everytime, creating a new Group.

  6. Integrate with Teams

    It would be great if you could integrate this with team. its better from internal projects than Yammer. this would be a team members on a plan would have a corresponding teams channel and both would share the same sharepoint group/folder

    Is there a way to integrate Hyperlinks to OneNote Notebooks?

    Thinking about organising different Projects in Planner and copy a Hyperlink into the Project-Details which referes to a OneNote Notebook where further Details are listed.

  9. Sync a plan to a SharePoint 365 task list.

    I would love to be able to sync a plan to a task list in SharePoint 365. When a task is created on the SharePoint task list, it should be synchronized with the Planner plan.

  10. Attach file from Forms to Planner via Microsoft Flow

    In my team, one creates a task using Microsoft Forms.

    This integration is done via Microsoft Flow.

    I would like to be able to ask requestor to upload file via Microsoft Forms (this is now possible in Forms) and this to be transferred as an attachment to the task that has just been created in Planner.

  11. Read only rights to users

    Don't allow users to edit the task and date of task until the admin can allow the user to edit. User can only have rights to view their tasks and due date and comment over their status but not to edit their task by their self , only admin have to rights to change the due date and re edit the task.

  12. Planner needs to become a Sharepoint App

    It's confusing to have a Planner team and a Sharepoint team. Planner should become a Sharepoint app within the Sharepoint team's page.

  13. Integration Planner-Hub with new MS-Teams

    There is currently no Integration between plans created in SharePoint Planner Hub and Plans created in "Teams" (desktop-App). Plans created in Teams are not shown in Planner Hub - and vice versa.

  15. Please provide a way to hide Office 365 Groups when creating a plan

    Please provide a way to hide Office 365 Groups when creating a plan! Every time anyone creates a Plan, it creates an "Office 365 Group" which then appears in the all Address books. We need a GUI-based way to quickly, simply hide these. You could make a check box called Secret Groups that is essentially a private group that aren’t visible in the directory by non-members.

    For an Example (random at that); We don’t need a group called “Company Downsizing” in our Address books and having IT remove it which could take +30 minutes to hide this group. Right now,…

  16. Bi-Directional Integration with Visual Studio Team Foundation Server tasks.

    Specify in any of the plans the link to Team Foundation Server for tracking.

    The item in TFS can show the link to the Planner and anyone can click that link to see the Planner.

  17. Provide the ability to report on Planner in Power BI

    It would be great to provide an overview of different projects within different Planner groups by using Power BI. Reporting in Planner is currently very limited.

  18. Simple integration to other O365 objects

    There are a number of suggestions here that talk about particular elements of O365. I would make it both simpler and more general - I would expect to be able to link directly to an object anywhere else in O365. That may be an email, a calendar event, a document in SharePoint or OneDrive, a note or notebook from OneNote, etc.

    The Planner tool is powerful, but at the moment it is essentially stand alone. Even typing links in doesn't really work - they render as plain text and are not active as links. The power of it will come…

  20. Overlay schedules from diffrent plans

    In schedule view you should be able to open different plans and have the same functionality as outlook overlay calendars i.e. enabling overlay of schedules, from different plans. Colours of the tasks should match the plan’s icon colour and you should still retain filter controls at the same level as when you open current schedules.
