  1. conversations pop up in planner

    A pop-up to come up/open on screen for conversations as eg in Facebook chat where one can type in directly rather than opening the the notification javascript to direct to conversation.

  2. An api for Trello

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

  3. 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

  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. Wufoo integration/Form integration

    Would be great to have this be an automated software. What I mean is that a person can fill out a form and it autocreates a Basket.

  10. 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…

  11. 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!

  13. 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
