  1. Allow Planner plans to be created in a Private Teams Channel

    When we create a Private Channel in Teams, creating a Planner is not an option in the channel tab. This would be helpful: to allow this subgroup of people to work together on a confidential activity within a team.

  4. Prevent Data leaks via comment emails

    We have discovered a security issue with Planner emails. If you receive an email from Planner about new comments, reply to the email and add another address (external address in this case) then the added address gets updates on ALL new comments for that task.

    Steps to reproduce:
    -Assign a task in Planner
    -Add a comment to the task
    -When the email is received from Planner, reply to the email and add an external address
    -Make another comment in Planner
    -External email address gets the comment update.

    There is nowhere in Planner showing this external address subscribed to updates, there…

  5. More Attachments

    Planner only allows us to attach 9 attachments to a single bucket and we are finding that we hit that maximum on a regular basis. It boggles me that there is a limit on this as they are all linked to SharePoint and planner is only holding the link not the actual document.

  6. Built-in Recurrence in Planner

    We are currently using planner application to manage client tasks and organize team work. Indeed, the tasks are often recurring; daily, weekly, bi-weekly etc. While we are currently using Microsoft Flow to schedule recurring tasks as a workaround but it would be great if planner has in-built recurrence feature which would allow the end users to have the liberty and decide the recurrence for each task themselves similar to Outlook. Hope this gets rolled out soon to make life easier!!!

  8. order labels

    It's great that we now have more colors for labels, however, as a result, we need to have the ability to order labels. For example, with the new vibrant colors, I'd like to use some of the more eye-catching colors rather than the original pale pastel labels. However, once you do that, the user has to scroll through the entire list to find a label. Instead, once a label has been given a name, those labels should appear at the top of the scroll down menu with the unnamed colors below them. This will make it easier fo the user…

  9. To be able to add a person as a watch list rather than assigning them to the task

    We have tasks that leadership is working on, but want to add the team that it will affect so they have the most recent information. Is there a way to have certain folks added as 'assigned' and then a different group of folks to be a 'watcher/watch list'?

  10. Bulk delete completed tasks

    Currently there is no easy way to delete completed tasks other than having to delete each completed task manually one at a time. There is no Power Automate connector as well that enables deletion of completed tasks. Due this, for high volume Planner boards, keeping tasks per user within the limits is very tedious, time consuming. The inability to bulk delete completed tasks is posing a big constraint/challenge for Planner to be used when the number of tasks being created in high. A feature either in Planner and/or in Power Automate to be able to handle this more efficiently would…

  12. Planner Comments should be sent to people assigned to the Card

    I certainly appreciate that sending comments to everyone in the group is a bad idea. Why not send the comment only to whoever is Assigned to that card.

    This current solution where only people that have made comments get notices makes the comments completely unusable for communicating to people that are responsible for the card. For example, I’d like the ask the person assigned to the card, what their progress is? They don’t get the message any longer. The only people that get the message are people that have made comments.

    Here is another example of a problem with this.…

  13. Dark Mode for Planner web view

    Dark Mode for Planner web view. Currently other Office365 apps support it (OWA Outlook, Teams etc). But Planner is only available as plain white. I would like to see either different themes that also change the background to darker colors or just full Dark Mode like other Office365 web apps have.

  14. Planner integration with Azure DevOps

    The Planner's interface it's great, very useful and intuitive. If is possible to create a some integration with Azure DevOps to use Planner like a input tool I really sure that Planner usage get focus of development teams very fast. The Azure DevOps is a great tool for life-cycle development but his interface is so complex and the Planner can be the bridge between the Azure ecosystem and teams with different kind of skills for a simple use to planning projects and tasks.

  16. Mirror a card/task on more than one planner board

    It would be so great to be able to mirror a card from a head board and follow its progress from multiple sub boards. We are many teams with the same client for example, and we share our resources cross many of the teams.

    So we need a main board with all of the tasks in our bucketlist and that a team can follow/mirror cards that are of interest to them on to their board. (Instead of all of us updating on 15 different boards each time we make progress in a projekt/task/card).

  18. Alfred Hitchcock closed the dental service

    After waiting through the entire lockdown until I had my tooth removed, it finally happened yesterday. So, I arrived at the newly opened dental clinic at 11:55 am, ready for my 12 o'clock appointment. I had to wait outside for 25 minutes. At 12:20 I was invited, and my temperature was measured with a "gun". It was 35.6, so you could go to the dentist. They told me to lie down, X-rayed me, and gave me injections. Before my tooth went completely numb. It was painful, but I came out of the operating room at 12:35, having just experienced Alfred…

  19. groundwater flowing through the road surface

    I quote to replace the patio. Because of all the winter dampness, a "spring" appeared at the foot of some steps, the terrain is cut into a rather long slope. Is the answer to lay some kind of permeable pipe along the foot of the retaining wall, either under the sidewalk or in a narrow gravel ditch? if so, which pipe is the right one to use, and is it better to lay it and specify the solution or to lay it on the sand? All tips are gratefully accepted!

  20. Accessing custom pages through a socks proxy

    Hi,
    Hope someone out there can help :-)

    I have flashed a Sonoff S20 socket with the latest build of ESP Easy.

    At home, connected to my wifi, I can connect and access the unit including the built-in dashboard.esp and my own custom.esp pages no problem. Desktop and Android browsers work OK.

    Away from home I am using a secure SSH connection (password protected key)and port forwarding to tunnel into my home network (via my Ubuntu server).
    I am using the same Android phone to connect.

    I can access the dashboard.esp and all the other built in ESP Easy pages…
