  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.

      • 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

        • 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.

                • import tasks from excel

                  Planner should really look at (or adopt) what the IQTELL app does. I am only a user of the tool - it is not that elegant - somewhat clunky but it offers a glimpse of what PMs are really looking for. Integration of Projects/Tasks/Email (from more than one source) - for example, I can assign an email to a project or down to a project task. You can import/export CSV files for tasks and other areas and allows the setup of business rules (ie. If an email comes in with this keyword - assign it to this project and/or task).…

                  • 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…

                    • An api for Trello

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

                        • Adding custom fields to a Planner task using the API

                          We made an integration from iGlobe CRM Office 365 to the Planner. The app is a SharePoint online app. This means we can create a task from iGlobe CRM in the Planner. This is great. However I want to be able to see the task on the company or contact in iGlobe CRM. For that I need to add the company or contact ID to a custom filed on the task. From iGlobe CRM I will be able to look for the contact ID among the tasks and display then on the contact.

                            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…

                            • 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
