  3. Set default view (week vs. month) in Schedule view in planner

    I would like to either be able to set a default view (week vs. month) in Schedule view in planner; or remember and use my last view.

  4. Language versions to Planner and Calender view.

    Language versions to Planner and Calender view. Calender has Sunday as first day of the week. Monday would be better (or at least in our organisation).

  6. I need relative dates, # of hours a task will take, and relative start and due.

    My work requires relative dates until the plan has a firm schedule. Also, each task needs an estimated # of hours it will take. With relative dates I may need someone to start on a task the first day of a project knowing it may 3 weeks for a client to get material to the person to do complete their work. So I want the person to start 1 week after contract signing and finish within 4 weeks on a task that I think will take 4 total hours. BONUS idea - it sure would be nice if a user…

  7. Create ability to add card to schedule view without changing the due date

    It'd be great if you could create a preference that allows users to choose whether we want adding a task to the scheduler to a) change the due date, OR b) change the start date. I'd like to use schedule view to plan out what days I'd like to work on different items -- yet keep the originally scheduled due date.

  8. Add pre-requisites to tasks and timeline adjustments

    Many times, I have tasks scheduled that require another task assigned to someone else be finished, in order to be completed. If that pre-requisite is completed late, it should push my scheduled task due-date back automatically. This gives me the opportunity to complete my task early and get the project back on the original schedule.

  10. Have the test show up on all days it's scheduled for

    Have the test show up for everyday it's scheduled. Also, if the label colors would show up on the Calendar, I could see if some one was already assigned to that day. At least allow options to say if you want the task only to show up on the schedule for the day it starts, due date or entire planned duration.

  11. Assign tasks by business day which can recurr monthly

    Assign tasks by business day which can recurr monthly so on the first business day of every month, task x is to be completed. This would be valuable to folks that work in financial reporting that work on certain tasks every month based on business days not calendar days.

  12. Prioritize tasks in schedule view

    If there are multiple tasks on a given day in the "schedule" view, I would like to prioritize those tasks. I am not able to drag and drop to prioritize the tasks in the "schedule" view, but I can do the same in the "board" view. As a workaround, I go between schedule view and Board view, but that is not very efficient.

  14. Non-working days in Planner

    When a task is assigned start and end dates, it is usually taken into account if weekends have working days or not but this cannot be shown in the Schedule view as it currently shows tasks running across weekends.

    There should be a way to enable either Saturday/Sunday or both as non-working days for the task so that the actual days the task is worked on is shown in the schedule view of a plan.

  15. Anzeigen von erledigten Aufgaben im Zeitplan

    Es wäre gut wenn man eine Anzeige erstellen könnte um erledigte Aufgaben dauerhaft anzuzeigen. Dies wäre sowohl im Board als auch im Zeitplan nützlich.

  18. Allow for Outlook Calendar Items to be exported INTO planner Schedule View.

    Exporting Planner Schedule to an Outlook Calendar is great, but Planner still lacks some common functionalities that exist in Outlook (repeat tasks being an extremely important one.

  19. Team Tasks View by Colleague into the calendar View

    At the schedule View we cannot see the calendar by Colleague, only tasks. It does not reflect the colleague allocation and like in other App (https://www.float.com/) we would like to have it here.

  20. Create key dates in schedule view (which are not cards)

    It would be great to be able to mark key dates in the schedule view for upcoming events/milestones/gateways that are not tasks in themselves, but need displaying in the plan.

    This is a little like the '0' days option for tasks in MS Project.

    For example, we often need to show key meetings for approvals, board meetings etc. and organise other tasks around these. Without this feature we have to refer back and forth between Outlook and Planner to see where key dates are, or create a card as a placeholder for the date (but it remains incomplete and unassigned…
