  1. 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.

  2. Extracting Tasks Associated To Users In Planner

    I am working on data integration for planner making API calls for reporting purposes.

    I am surprised why this feature (Tasks Associated To User) has not been enabled, as rest are enabled in planner.

    Everything below works when I am a Member of plan.
     Plans In Group
     Plan Buckets
     Plan Details
     Plan Tasks
     Task Details
     List Of Users
     Group Conversations…Etc

    Then why not Tasks Associated To Users for the Plans which are shared can be extracted? It’s only working when I am the owner of that particular plan, and I don’t think one…

  4. 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

  5. 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

  10. like to track the activity deadline.

    At present we are able to track the deadline of task, But I like to track the activity deadline. This calls for provision of due dates for each activity and task due date will be due date of activity which will take longest time.

  12. 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…

  13. deadline/due date should be possible to calculate

    All Tasks Deadlines are based on one Milestone. I calculate all due dates in excel based on a single date. if this date is changing during the project phase, would be nice to change just the single Milestonedate. All due dates should be calculated in realtime

  14. Renaming of Task and Deleting of Task to be reflected to the user interface immediately.

    I've observed that when you rename a task, it will at first reflect immediately on the sidebar. However, when you try to sign-out and sign-in again or refresh the page, the previous name of the task is still there on the sidebar.

    Once you deleted a task, it will not be deleted immediately at the sidebar, causing confusion on the part of the user.

  19. Send a notification when using the API to close a task

    When we close a task using the API no notifications are sent. This is normal when you close the task using the online Planner. Our users don't understand why we can't do that from our Add-in and Apps. t would be nice if the API will support that

  20. Planner Pro Outlook Addd-in - Adding an Attachment to a task using the API

    We have had many request from customers to the Planner Pro Outlook Add-in to adding attachments to the planner task. When we create a task from the Planner Pro add-in we can copy the mail subject to the task subject and the mail body to the task description (as text). In addition we want to be able to "upload" attachments using the API from the add-in to the planner task attachments field
