  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Enter a start time and a deadline

    The same area where you add the deadline pr day - it would be nice if you could make it, from a hour aswell.

    Like: 12:00 01-01-2020 - deadline: 15:00 02-01-2020

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Task dependencies! One can't even plan a wedding without this!

    Dear Planner Team,

    I work for a very large company that is in the process of rolling out Trello because Planner lacks this ONE feature.

    We get it.

    Microsoft needs to be careful not to cannibalize it's Project business.

    That said, there are plenty of other vital features in Project that will sustain that product.

    Have you never heard of the Innovator's Dilemma?

    Allowing the low end of the market to be stolen out from beneath you is a very un-Christensen thing to do.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
