    • Please add a @mention functionality to checklist and comments section in Planner

      When I am adding checklist or comments on Planner Tasks then I want to be able to mention a specific employee who the task, or item in checklist is assigned. This way I want the person to be notified.

      • "Your session has expired. Can you please sign in again? Sorry for any inconvenience" Box pops up every few minutes.

        It is very annoying to have the session expired box continually pop up - even when actively using planner and creating/updaing tasks etc.

        If this is to do with the auto refresh, can we at least have an option to turn the auto refresh off and manually sync.

        • Possiblity to group by both Bucket and Assigned To

          Typically analogue planning boards have a time or process step dimension horizontally and a role dimension vertically (person, function, team etc), ie Swimlanes. In Planner I am forced to view either or, by Bucket or assigned to.

          A vertical dimension to the board would really help and it could be used for Assigned to or, even better, custom fields that I could use to categorise into teams or other aspects..

          • Search tab for tasks

            I’m going crazy when I try to look for a completed task in order to reopen it. Wouldn’t it make sense to have a search tool for the tasks?

                  Hello,

                  Thanks for taking the time to try out the Planner iOS App and to provide feedback. We are planning to add notification in a forthcoming update. Some of the types of notifications we’re considering include:
                  1. Tasks are assigned to you
                  2. Changes on Tasks Assigned to you
                  3. Comments on Tasks Assigned to you

                  Let us know in the comments what sort of notifications you’d like to see in the Planner iOS App.

                  Thanks!

                  • Support email notification in a hybrid mail environment.

                    At the moment there is no support for email notification of tasks in planner if you are hosting a hybrid solution with the mailbox to which it should be send is on premises.
                    Right now it is only possible in a environment which is hosted fully online.

                    • Security breach - A regular group member should not be able to add group members just by adding someone to a Task

                      Lets say you have a group containing sensitive material like the Executive Management Group. Then if someone by (mistake) assigns a task to someone outside the group, suddenly all the group content is available to that person since Planner will automatically add that person as a group member. This is totally not acceptable and is major security concern for organizations.

                              As for now, there is no way that we can copy, edit and delete comments. It is very important to be able to do so. Please add this option.

                                I'd like to scroll right or left without using a scroll bar. At Trello, I can drag the board to scroll horizontally.

                                    By the way, easy delete of a plan is also required

                                    • Separate plans from groups

                                      Currently an office 365 tenant needs to allow end users create groups in order to be able to create new plans. This needs to be separated otherwise group control becomes impossible for large organisations.

                                        Everyone should check Calendar & Planner everyday to check on the incoming due dates; however it could be useful -as we have recurrent tasks- to have recurrent reminder for tasks; i.e. everyday reminder for (1) very important task that is due in 1 week.

                                        This could be waved by setting the Task to a daily recurrency; if this is your intended solution for this please advise.

                                          I'd like to be able to change the background color - easier to identify what board I'm in + cards would stand out more. Depending on display we use, there is not enough contrast between cards and background, making it hard to see.
