  3. Schedule View - Scale to Show All Tasks

    Would like to see the Schedule View show all tasks. This saves time going back and forth between the schedule view and the tasks that are not displayed, especially for those out in the field working with the mobile app. Basecamp has this and scales the calendar so all tasks can be shown in the view.

  4. Visual Indicator to Show Tasks continues next week

    When viewing Weekly Schedule, there is no visual difference between a task that goes to the end of the week, vs. one that continues into next week. It would be good to know at a glance that this tasks continues beyond this week.

  5. Have an option to automatically change end date, when dates are being updated

    Similar to MS Project plan, if the remaining dates can update automatically it will great.

  7. estimated start and end

    start end end times can often be a bit fuzzy when a project first begins. it'd be helpful to have the option to note start and end times as estimated and for the graphic to change on the Schedule view to indicate that detail (a bar end points change to an arrow or dashed look maybe?)

  8. Better Outlook Integration - 2 way sync, private instead of ICal, etc.

    The current way of syncing between Planner and Outlook is very unintuitive, and not secure (it requires you to publish your planner schedule to the web).

    I would expect more seamless integration with the Planner schedule where it synchronizes to Outlook without requiring an ICal link, and a 2 way sync so details can be updated either in Outlook or in Planner.

  10. Lock MS Planner template so that users can copy the plan but are not able to modify the "template"

    Hello everybody,

    what I would like to have is one plan with a certain set of tasks. To this plan, I want to invite a certain group of people who could use this set of tasks for their projects. Therefore, they could duplicate this "template" by copying the plan and name it according to the individual project having the same To-Dos as the template and then start working in their project-specific plan and change tasks, complete tasks, invite project team members etc.

    In case there are various persons invited to the initial template and it is not somehow locked, I…

  11. Once the creation of Templates is made and allowed to be assigned to existing Teams, add a Timeline ability to the Plan Tasks

    In the creation of a template, you build a timeline for your tasks by assigning all tasks in your Plan a date. Then when you make a copy of the Template Plan and assign it to a Team, you are asked for a Plan "Start Date" or "End Date". Once either date is supplied and the Plan is copied, all tasks will adjust their dates to reflect the timeline. Having the ability to ignore weekends would be great too.

  13. Single day view in schedule

    Allow the Schedule view to show a single day. Board view shows today/tomorrow and then bundles the rest of the week in a single bucket. Sometimes we want to look at details for a specific date to see what is planned.

    The week view is nice but a lot of the important details are not see until you select the task itself.

  14. Track when to do items for a task are completed.

    It would be beneficial to automatically track when a to do item was assigned to a user and completed. This would allow companies to review completed tasks and assess how the assignment distribution through the team could improve. This would be a helpful quality control feature for managers for all size groups.

  15. View assignment icon in schedule

    I'd like to see assignment of each task in week view so that I can quickly see who is over-scheduled on a given day/week.

  16. Split the Schedule timeline vertically using the Group by data

    Ability to use the Group By facility to seperate tasks on the timeline into vertical sections, eg group by "Assigned to", would split the timeline into seperate vertical sections, one for each assignee to give visibility of the workload of each individual team member. group by "Labels" splits the timeline into sections per label etc..,

  17. tijden/ klokken op project

    Nu kan er gepland worden per dag, maar het zou fijn zijn als je de taak ook een tijd kon geven. als je er bijvoorbeeld maar 1 uur over mag doen om het af te maken. Dat dit ook geklokt kan worden in het systeem en dat je aan het einde van het project ziet of je positief of negatief bent uitgekomen in je planning. Kunnen er ook sub users worden toegevoegd door namen te noemen. Als mensen geen persoonlijk e-mail adres hebben maar gezamenlijk werken, de taken moeten echter wel verdeeld worden over meerdere personen. dit zou ook een…

  19. Show tasks in bar form when viewing Schedule in Month

    It is nice to be able to see all tasks in bar chart format when viewing Schedule in Week, but when viewing in Month this direct visual effect disappears when you have multiple tasks. Our team normally have more than 15 ongoing tasks per day, each lasts more than few weeks, it would be very helpful if we have a choice to view these tasks in bar chart. Or provide a option so that we can show the top 5 or X most important tasks in bar chat form for each Month.

  20. Rollup Channel Plans to Group/Team Level

    Being able to create multiple plans as a part of a channel that then rolls up into a Group/Team Level comprehensive view - even if summarized without same labels, or buckets would be great.
