  1. Version Control Integration

    Most other PM, task and issue tracking systems provide integration to version control systems. My specific use-case is Git (GitHub and BitBucket)

    Some systems like Trello work by attaching a PR or commit to a specific card/task, and pulling information onto the card (http://blog.trello.com/github-and-trello-integrate-your-commits). Trello also updates the PR with a comment linking to the card/task.

    Other systems like JIRA work by polling commit messages on the repository. When an issue key or identifier (like MYPROJ-634) is detected in a commit message, an association is created between the card/task and the commit or PR.

    I was surprised this…

  3. Have a database of tasks and subtasks

    Having a set of task predefined (sort of Database of task in a specific status) by the Admin and ready to be assigned to Groups or specific users will help to deliver a project in a fast way.

  6. Need Recurring Tasks in Planner

    This is necessary for the majority of the repeatable tasks my team needs to complete. Will also need flexibility to set when the tasks need to be repeated.

  7. Add comments to a task in Teams

    The integration between Teams and Planner for tasks seems to work well (for me), except with regard to Comments. Once I created a plan using Planner and linked that existing plan to a team in Teams, I observed that I could add new tasks, adjust task assignments, adjust task due dates, change labels for a task, change the value for labels for a task, add/change the description for a task, add checklist items, check off checklist items. All was looking super, until I discovered I couldn't add comments to a task from within Teams. This would be very useful functionality.

  10. Export Button

    It would be useful to have an export button where you could export data (due date, completed on, progress status) to excel.

  14. Display an outlook calendar in planner

    I see a lot about syncing planner events to outlook but I want to go the other way. I manage my calendar in outlook becaue it has the most robust scheduling features, has everyone in the organization, and because meetings constantly get moved around. I just want outlook calendar to display in planner so that i can plan tasks around those meetings, especially if I could filter that view to show only meetings in a certain category. It doesn't make any sense to me to manage calendars all over the place in different plans rather than managing my calendar in…

  15. We need ONE unified Tasks list across all of O365 not 4 or 5. (Integrate Planner, Outlook Tasks, MS Project Tasks & Sharepoint Tasks)

    I don't know why Planner, Outlook tasks and SharePoint tasks are all separate apps. It creates confusion. It seems that Microsoft knows this and released a Flow integration that allows you send your Planner tasks to Outlook tasks, but that is too much work to implement. I got many errors as the integration is not 1 to 1 where fields is concerned. New users would not know about the integration as well. As an Out of box solution Planner is basically useless for our organization now because our tasks are per project. I'd suggest getting rid of Outlook and SharePoint…

  16. Planner notifications

    With the notifications, could you not link it to Teams and have the notifications go to teams rather than emails, we definitely need to know there is a new task.

  17. Integrate Planner with Planner in Office 365 Teams

    How about integrating plans created as tabs in Office 365 Teams environment with Office 365 Planner? Our team created a number of buckets and tasks and assignees in Office 365 teams environment but when one of us selects Planner in Office 365.... THAT TEAM PLAN DOES NOT APPEAR IN PLANNER

  18. On-Prem Exchange means I can't use Planner conversations or calendar

    Better support for hybrid environments please, use SharePoint calendar rather than an Exchange Online mailbox account? SharePoint calendar can then by Synced with Outlook desktop client? support for changing the domain of the plan email address to another domain.

  20. Be able to attach emails to a plan task.

    I want to be able to attach an email to a plan task - often I get emails that need to be turned into tasks, and the content of the email is important to the task. Can I add an email from outlook or 365 as an attachment - that stays with the plan task (so I can file or delete the email separately)
