  3. 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.

  4. Ability to assign time / days to tasks and see what time / days are remaining.

    For each task, you add into Microsoft Planner, you can add a set amount of time or days resource like a timesheet. You can see how many days or time is remaining for each task and not just task deadline.

  5. 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).

  7. 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.

  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.

  9. I would like to be able to see all tasks due during the week in the schedule mode instead of seeing (+4, or +6) more.

    I can see in the schedule portion that I have certain tasks that are due. Example on 10/30, Open a new work order.
    If I want to see all the tasks due that day, I have to click the link for "+6 More." I would prefer if it showed all task that day. Or at least having the option to do so.

  10. Gannt view

    This app needs a Gannt view, and more than that you should be able to group tasks by team member. All the tasks assigned to John for example. This App needs work for continual service based organisations

  13. Add schedule view to mobile apps

    Please add the schedule view to the mobile app. Add the ability to view the list of tasks and drag and drop to the days as a way of planning order.

  15. 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.

  16. Make completed Tasks be crossed out instead of disappear from the schedule calendar.

    When a task is completed it disappears from the calendar. It would be nice to still see it on the calendar but crossed out because when it disappears I don't remember the exact dates it was completed.
    Thanks

  17. 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…

  18. Tasks per hour with timeline view.

    Allow functionality of booking tasks in per hour with timeline view. For example, an engineer has a job which will last 1 hour at 9am and another job which will last 2 hours at 10am. The ability to book a task for a certain amount of time and to also display that on a timeline view, preferably with showing multiple persons on the same page.

  19. McAfee Activate Is Easy via Retail Card mcafee.com/activate card?

    Before we begin with the establishment procedure, we thusly trust that you as of now have a McAfee.com/activate antivirus CD. In the event that you don't have establishment CD, you can ********* the web or from neighborhood McAfee Retailer. Keep the McAfee antivirus programming box or documentation inside it adjacent as it would have the item ID composed on it someplace. @http://www.activate--mcafee.com/
