  2. Have schedule view to show not only week and month, but also for 3 month to 6 month views, similar to Microsoft Project.

    Basically when viewing tasks in the schedule view, it would be useful if i can view not only in weekly or monthly, but also across the entire task duration of say 3 to 6 months. This kid of view is already available in Microsoft Project, and gives an easy and quick view of various tasks across the project timeline.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow more flexibility

    Enable a way to copy a task but have the ability to paste it on another day. Ex - when using the tool to track time off for a team, you have to create a task on the calendar for each day of the month. I want to copy a task and paste it to the remainder of the month/year so all that has to be done is a team member goes into the calendar and enter their scheduled time off.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Rollup Channel Plans to Group/Team Level

    Being able to create multiple plans as a part of a channel that then rolls up into a Group/Team Level comprehensive view - even if summarized without same labels, or buckets would be great.

  12. 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…

  13. Easy steps to resolve Microsoft Office Error code 0-1018

    MS office Error code 0-018 tries to install or update MS office 365 or 2016 is due to network connection errors, internal registry conflicts, insufficient space provisions and firewall rules or pre-set proxy. The basic windows installer files in the PC may not work properly in case of the damage or corruption in the registry. Especially MS office is now an unavoidable component of our day to day life such as universities, schools, researches, and business organisations. So solving MS Office program error has a crucial role in our hassle-free computing.

  16. Change the date fields to say 'Projected Completion' and 'Actual Completion' so we can see how far ahead of schedule we are.

  17. Single day view in schedule

    Allow the Schedule view to show a single day. Board view shows today/tomorrow and then bundles the rest of the week in a single bucket. Sometimes we want to look at details for a specific date to see what is planned.

    The week view is nice but a lot of the important details are not see until you select the task itself.

  18. calendar glitch-starting plan marks the calendar until the due date

    In the Calendar app, if you start a plan a week or two before the due date, it marks the rest of your calendar to show that you have that much time left. It's kind of annoying seeing that line stretched across several days, especially if you're just waiting for the culminating meeting but have done all other aspects of the plan.

  19. Add calendar settings options (first day of a week and date format)

    There should be an option to choose which data format to display in tasks and in Schedule. Month number followed by a day number is not a standard for Europe. The same for first day of a week (for me it is definitely Monday not Sunday). I would like to be able to change these settings.
