  1. I want a "Convert to Task Planner" button for emails

    Most of our tasks come in via email, a simple button to convert it to a planner task would be imperative, otherwise it renders the planner a little bit pointless for us.

    As an update, our colleagues in To-Do have delivered the ability to create tasks directly from Outlook.com!

    To-Do has rolled out the Tasks Pane for Outlook.com’s Mail & Calendar, and is also the new Tasks for Outlook.com! With Planner’s & To-Do’s integration, we hope that To-Do will become a central hub for all of your personal tasks, and that switching to Planner to collaborate with others is seamless!

    Here’s more information on the To-Do’s task experience within Outlook: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-outlook-com-416865a1-0c4d-4e69-af6f-f98ffce3747c

  3. Office Planner PowerShell module

    Can the Office Groups PowerShell cmdlet set be extended to include additional commands for Get, Set, New actions relating to Plans, Tasks, Buckets, everything? This should include the ability to save a Plan as an empty template as in SharePoint

  4. Full Plan and Task Management RESTful (or like) API.

    Some calls might do the following:

    Get Plans
    Get Buckets From Plan
    Get Tasks From Bucket
    Add Plan
    Add User to Plan
    Add Bucket to Plan
    Add Task to Bucket
    Assign Task to User

    This could open up so many possibilities. I would use it to create tasks for users (like tickets) and all the notification and time tracking would be handled by the Planner Application.

  5. Microsoft Flow: Update a Task or Update Task Details Changes

    At the moment, you can make a lot of changes to Planner tasks, but there are a few items missing that I would like to see added for completeness.
    - Update Task Bucket: You can assign a task to a bucket when the task is created, but you can't change this via Flow at the moment for an existing task.
    - Update Task Label: Unfortunately, Flow can't do anything with labels at the moment. It would be nice to be able to interact with these similar to buckets.
    - Update Check List: Unfortunately, Flow can't do anything with checklists on…

  7. Different Levels of Notifications/Members/Assigned Tasks

    I am looking to be able to send Notifications/updates on Tasks to only the Task owner(s), not all members of the group, OR the ability to assign Tasks to non-members of the Plan.
    For example. Supervisor has created a Plan of misc. tasks and created different Buckets for each admin in department. When I update Tasks in my Bucket, each admin Member of the Plan recieves Notifications that are not pertinant to them. Additionally, when I try to add individuals that I am working with to one of my Tasks, I am unable to do so if the Task is…

  9. Microsoft Flow: Task Update Trigger

    We have three triggers at the moment that work on New, Assigned To, and Complete. It would be nice to be able to leverage Microsoft Flow to take action when a change occurs on a Planner task.

  12. Promote a Group conversation to a Task

    Emails posted to the Group should be promotable to Plan/Bucket along with their attachments with appropriate metadata mapping, i.e Subject -> Task title etc. We can also establish conventions like @<user> on the subject would be mapped to Assignee etc

    A similar facility is used quite extensively in Trello to accommodate integration scenarios with external apps but this Use Case is covered well in O365 with Connectors. The unique selling point of Groups is that are email-enabled therefore can act as a Queue/Routing Point for other actions, either manually (explicit UI actions) or automatic.
    This would require the addition of…

  13. An api for Trello

    An API for Trello would be great. Or at least an export/import option to migrate data.

  14. Get Task History

    It would be nice to have an API that gives us all of a task's history including entry and exit dates per bucket ID using this kind of Graph API endpoint: GET /planner/tasks/<id>/history

  16. Planner Task Attachment API

    Within Planner Tasks, The only way a Link can be added is through attachment. However in current Graph API, there is no way to read task's link attachment, or to add a link attachment to a task. So here is a list of APIs that I would request:
    - read list of task link attachment and its description
    - update a link attachment/description
    - add a link attachment/description to the task

  17. Create Plans from Microsoft Flow

    In Microsoft Flow, you can create tasks and buckets, but you cant create plans. It would be very helpful to create plans in automated flow.

  18. Create Planner Tasks with VBA

    Would like to be able to automate the creation of tasks for projects with a template concept using VBA.
    We create similar tasks for projects consistently. I'd love to be able to hit a button from Access, Excel or even PowerApps to create the ~15 tasks each time we create a project - rather than creating an Excel file and copy and pasting each one.

  19. Planner MyTasks webpart in Sharepoint

    Update the webpart into sharepoint to have the "My Tasks" view available. Now we can only integrate one or many plans linked to the same group and cannot embed a full tasks review.

  20. Language Interface in English

    Hi, this morning I found my planner hub in Bahasa Indonesia. I tried to reset the configuration but it still in English (UK). In other apps they are in English but NOT my planner! Please make it sync with other apps in English. So frustating!
