  1. Be able to nominate hours for a task not just days

    instead of saying the task will start and finish just in days you can also choose how many hours.

  2. Sincronizacion

    Me encantaría que se lograra una sincronización del calendario de planner al calendario outlook. Que pasa? Resulta que copias el link para pasarlo al calendario outlook, si realizas un movimiento en planner no hace ninguna actualización en el calendario outlook.

  3. Allow users to assign a 'workload to a task'.

    Allow users to assign a 'workload' to a task. Not just start and enddate, but an amount of hours lets say. The task might span a month, and in that month you have i.e. 16 hours to spend on that specific task.

  4. Archiving

    Hello, we use Planner in our organization and miss the possibility to archive plans. It would also be good if you could add more than 9 attachments to the plan, because otherwise the group work is very limited.
    Thanks

  5. Add scheduled tasks based on days before or after a start date, not a specific date, so that once the start date is added the other due date

    Then, when a plan is copied, all dependent dates follow and adding the one date off of which all other tasks are dependent, saves a lot of time. Also, please allow attachments to be copied when a Plan is copied.

  8. Select number of weeks to view - 1, 2, or 3 weeks.

    Would like to have the option to see 1 to 3 weeks out vs just 1-week or 1-month.

  9. Add a Gantt option to the schedule view.

    Can we please get a Gantt view option in the schedule view. Or even just a year option so we can better see tasks that are more than a month or two long. Something in Planner not in MS Project please.

    Can we get confirmation/update that this is being developed in Planner?

  10. Upprepade uppgifter

    Önskar möjlighet att "upprepa" schemauppgifter. Tex varje vecka, månad etc.

  11. Add planner schedule view to share point

    It would be helpful if I could add the schedule calendar view to my share point site. Currently only the task list or dashboard is available.

  12. Label colors, categorization, Schedule colors & mouseover information, add GANTT chart view

    There are a lot of good features within Planner; however, there are a lot of things missing from it as well. Please add additional Label colors. Currently there are only like 6. When you use this for many projects across many individuals, having the ability to use more color codes would be a significant help. Additionally, have the color codes flow over to the Schedule view. Presently, everything is just gray. This makes it difficult to distinguish one project task from another. When you look at the Schedule view, you see the task title but not the Bucket or project/person…

  13. Schedule view visually representing who tasks are assigned to without filtering

    I want to be able to look at the schedule view and without having to "filter" be able to see which assignment is put to which person. As a manager this would be huge.

  14. Gannt view

    This app needs a Gannt view, and more than that you should be able to group tasks by team member. All the tasks assigned to John for example. This App needs work for continual service based organisations

  15. Microsoft Planners Buckets back up

    Some times due to user error a bucket of tasks can be deleted and it would be good to have a backup for that.

  17. Make due date field smarter

    Today the due date field in Planner understands that if I today (24.10.2020) write 30 and hit enter, I mean 30.10.2020. That is such details that make a tool so much better to work with.
    But if I today write 15, it thinks I mean 15.10.2020. No one set a due date in the past. It is smoother if it then understands that I mean 15.11.2010. I would also like to be able to write "fri" and the field now that I mean first coming Friday. Then I do not have to look up the date, and the work flows…

  18. Select weeks to display in calendar

    Allow users to choose which days or weeks they'd like to display on the calendar, similar to how you can highlight days in Outlook.

  20. Master calendar/schedule across all my different teams

    I need to combine all of my different teams into one big calendar. We are an art center, with lots of different things going on in the building and out in the community. I want to have the option of seeing them all at once in a calendar format. In other words, I would like to be able to share a "plan" across teams so that multiple teams can contribute to a single calendar- for example, multiple teams/departments can all contribute to a single social media plan/schedule. right now social media would have to be a plan within each team,…
