  2. Sub-task due dates

    While a plan has a final due date there are interim tasks (sub-tasks) that must get completed for the entire plan to achieve its state due date completed.

    For that


    1. Each sub-tasks should get assigned to specific people with their due dates.


    2. Those subtasks must show up in their individual to-dos so that they know what they are working on. (this part is done


    3. If the change their due date then the team could know if the overall task will be completed in time.


    Therefore please add the option to create due dates & assignments on the subtasks. It is…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  7. Master calendar/schedule across all my different teams

    I need to combine all of my different teams into one big calendar. We are an art center, with lots of different things going on in the building and out in the community. I want to have the option of seeing them all at once in a calendar format. In other words, I would like to be able to share a "plan" across teams so that multiple teams can contribute to a single calendar- for example, multiple teams/departments can all contribute to a single social media plan/schedule. right now social media would have to be a plan within each team,…

  8. 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.

  12. 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.

  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. 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. Add colour options to Buckets and People to be able to distinguish tasks in Schedule view.

    Schedule view currently offers little value to my shared team board as we can't distinguish at a glance what needs to be done by whom, or in what buckets they fall.

    The ability to colour code Buckets, Tasks and People so that you can then easily distinguish between these in Schedule view would be amazing. These could change depending on what you've selected in the "Group by" option.

    So "Group by assigned to" would show each task with a different colour on the Schedule depending on who it was assigned to. "Group by Bucket" would show a different colour (selected…

  18. 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.

  19. 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?)

  20. 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…
