  1. Allow guest users to comment on a task

    If guest user adds task to my plan and I ask additional questions in comments - the guest user will need to reply somehow. I can't understand why guest comments are blocked.

    • Have a chart feature that includes all the channel plans tasks within 1 team

      The chart feature is a great view, but it is for the moment only available at the planner level. If you have multiple plans within a team (I have plans per each channel for example) - you can't see the combined team chart.
      This could be very useful to have resource planning and resource monitoring. Who has to much work and who can help that person

      • Improve Checklist Functionality

        It would be great to see more functionality with the checklist function in MS Planner. For example, being able to assign members to individual checklist items, due dates for each item, hours for each item etc.)

          • Allow multiple checklists/due dates per checklist items on a card.

            The ability to add multiple checklist to a Planner Card significantly increases the flexibility of use cases for Planner Cards. Additionally, adding the ability to add due dates to each item on a checklist enhances the ability to manage the activity documented in the Card.

            • When you comment on a task the email should ONLY go to the member or members who are actually assigned to the task

              When you comment on a task the email should ONLY go to the member or members who are actually assigned to the task. there should be an option to mail to the members of the group separately.

              • Desktop Application

                Planner is a great application, but it definitely needs a desktop option, similar to Teams, for those of us at work. I love having Planner on my phone, but I would like to optimize planner via my desktop on M-F.

                  • Allow attachments to be copied when a task is copied to a different plan.

                    There was previously a request to "allow tasks to be MOVED between plans" that had 4,266 votes. This was recently marked complete when a copy functionality was released. However, copying a task to a different plan is not the same as moving it. The limitation in the implementation of "copy task" is that attachments are not copied when the task is copied. If a task has an attachment, that attachment is likely critical for completion of the task, so not allowing it to be copied is a problem.

                    • permissions

                      It would be great if we could put an entire team into a plan, but some team members can only add something to a single bucket list and the others have read-only permissions. Is this possible? Here I think very strongly of agencies that work with development and concept and designers. One could create a kind of Scrum process where customer advisors can create tasks and afterwards the work can be carried out by the individual departments. Furthermore, there should then be a bucket list such as verification, here the customer advisor can comment again, upload images .... to list…

                      • Overall plan's due date

                        Currently there is no visibility on when a PLAN is due, because the due date assigned to tasks within the plan does not aggregate up.

                        When I look at the plan status pie chart with Green, Red, Grey, Blue status, there is no way for me to know how late is late, whether large amount of grey is a cause for concern, whether red is serious enough to sound off an alarm.

                        Would you consider to add "# of days left" along side with "# of task left"?

                            When entering information within the comments field when the greater/less than brackets surround words or email in this instance, the information is dropped. I created a mini youtube private video so you can see 3 good examples - get in touch if you want to see that.

                                  • Restrict Access to Assigned Plan or Bucket

                                    As of now, if a user is assigned to a task, they are automatically added as members of an entire plan, and all subordinate buckets.

                                    In events where buckets or tasks have some independence of one another, it would be great if members assigned to a given task were not automatically able to access all other tasks in the same bucket or all other buckets in the same plan.

                                    • Default Planner view

                                      Would be good to be able to choose whether to have the Schedule, Charts or Board view as the default view when you first open the Planner.

                                      • Printing Plan

                                        I'd love to be able to print the plan itself, preferably in a timeline manner for reference and reporting.

                                          Being able to copy tasks is great, but PLEASE allow us to 1) duplicate / copy bucket lists and 2) Duplicate / copy entire plans (i.e., create a template. PLEASE!!!!!!!
