  1. 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.

  4. 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…

  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.

  6. 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.

  9. Assign "checklist items" from a task to specific users

    It would be great that you would be able to assign checklist items from a task to a specific user.
    The task might have 1 individual who is responsible (like a project manager), who creates a task.
    The task may have multiple checklist items, which then would have individual users who are responsible for those.

  10. Asana replacement with Planner is never possible due to limitations on color coding and Gantt View

    Asana replacement with Planner is never possible due to limitations on color coding and Gantt View. Please can you share an update when these would be added to Planner? Its a huge cost to have two separate solutions...!

  11. Make a "linear" calendar view days across the bottom with a "stack of tasks" on each day. This would show busy days or bottle necks

    Make a "linear" calendar view, days across the bottom with a "stack of tasks" on each day. This would show busy days or bottle necks for teams with finite resource.

  13. More visible task information in scedule view

    In the scedule view there's only a title shown each task. I would love to be able to see more information in this view. For example: the assigned user, label or note.

    This gives a better overview for who each task is planned for in a team plan.

  15. input for the number of day for end date from start date I have team members on 28 Day rotations

    I have team members on a 28 day rotation. instead or selecting the start and end date ( Manually calculating or counting the calendar days) it would be nice to have a cell to put the number of days (28 or random) from a start date and have Planner calculate the End Date.

  16. Colours

    Need the ability to colour code tasks within the schedule view. Having all tasks and buckets show up as the same colour makes the schedule view very ineffective. You should be able to do the following:

    1.) Have each bucket be it's own colour in Schedule view

    2.) Have priority items either be their own colour or have some kind of colour indication in Schedule view (maybe with a coloured dot that is red, yellow, green etc.)

  18. Drag and drop tasks to time slots you'd like to do them

    Choose time slots (recurring, or just blocks of time every day/week manually) when you want to work. Then, you can drag and drop tasks (or steps in tasks) to those blocks of time (with estimated length of time specified for each task), so you see if you need to add working time, if you were trying to do too many tasks on one day, etc. rather than just seeing them by deadline.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
