  1. Oppurtunaty to write down the scheduled time independent of the calender

    Hi everyone,

    it would be great if the tool allowed us to write down the planned time in hours per task and in the end the system handed out the totalled scheduled time in hours for the whole Project Independent to the calender overview. Because sometimes it would be great to just write down the Hours of a task without planning it to a specific date.

  2. Copy a task with link i.e. the same task could be seen in two different Teams

    It would be great if it was possible to copy a task with link i.e. the same task could be seen in two different Teams. When modifying one of them the other would update automatically

  3. Need the ability to add hours budget and actual for a given task.

    We work with multiple projects (plans) using multiple tasks and resources on each project, sometimes multiple resources on any given task. While having a start date and end date would be essential to get any sort of timeline view, either on a Calendar/Schedule/Gantt view, we also need to see the budgeted hours and the actual hours charged against that task to know if we are within budget, as well as on time.

  6. 완료된 작업들이 일정표에 보이지 않습니다. 지난 업무들의 이력을 확인하기 위하여 완료된 업무들을 일정표에서 확인할 수 있었으면 합니다. 완료된 업무 표시를 토글해서 표시 여부를 전환할 수 있으면 더욱 편리할 것 같습니다.

  7. Display more than one plan in the schedule view

    Currently the schedule view is only available at the plan level. It would be useful to have it also at the hub level and allow the user to select the plans (up to all of them) that they want to display in the schedule view. In many cases, the scheduling of a new task depends on what other tasks are already assigned to that same person.

  8. Make completed Tasks be crossed out instead of disappear from the schedule calendar.

    When a task is completed it disappears from the calendar. It would be nice to still see it on the calendar but crossed out because when it disappears I don't remember the exact dates it was completed.
    Thanks

  9. Auto-expand tasks in monthly schedule view

    When you are looking at the Monthly Schedule view, multiple tasks falling on the same day will have to be manually expanded by clicking on the "+n more" hyperlink.

    It would be better if the monthly schedule view could by default show all, and just make that particular week taller to accommodate this.

  10. Ability to assign time / days to tasks and see what time / days are remaining.

    For each task, you add into Microsoft Planner, you can add a set amount of time or days resource like a timesheet. You can see how many days or time is remaining for each task and not just task deadline.

  12. Schedule View integrated with buckets

    In the Schedule view, could be nice to see buckets or labels in the vertical axis and show the task as post its with description and resources allocated.

  15. Can you change the tasks to have date and time and recurrence? This way you can use the panner to have the task also be a meeting.

  16. Re-occurring tasks are needed

    I'm posting this as new because obviously no-one ever reads the existing suggestions. Without the ability to schedule re-occurring tasks, what is even the point of this planner?

  17. Work hours on schedule

    Now you can plan per day, but it would be nice if you could also give the task a time. for example, if you only have 1 hour to finish it. If this can also be clocked in the system then you know at the end of the project if you are positive or negative in your planning. is it possibible to add sub-users by mentioning names. If people don't have a personal e-mail address but work together with one e-mail adress. For example: the workshop includes: klaas / piet/ jan. task 1 is for klaas, but another part is…

  19. Show overdue tasks in schedule viewer

    When in Schedule view, either week or month, there should be an area to show past week/months' overdue tasks, in addition to the tasks due in the time frame showing.
