    • 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.

      • The ability to assign individual checklist items and designate a due date within a task leading up to the overall task due date.

        A task has a due date, but within the task the checklist items can also have their own due date and assigned group member to complete all needs before the actual task due date.

        • View completed tasks in Bucket chart

          We want to be able to see Completed tasks in the 'Bucket' chart. It makes no sense to hide them!

          Also, could the completed tasks not be crossed out, so they're easier to read once completed.

          Thanks

          • Overview of all Tasks created by me

            It would be nice if there was a view where i can see all Tasks which i have created. In the actual Version i have to assign myself to every Task i create to get an overview of all my created tasks.

            • 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.

              • For all comments, email notifications need to be sent to all assigned to that task.

                For all comments, email notifications need to be sent to all assigned to that task. That is the main use of Planner. If team members have completed their task; they can remove themselves from the assigned list, to stop the unwanted emails.

                      • Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards - Reopen

                        This task was CLOSED since the description said "copy or move" but the response is clearly we want to do what the subject line said.

                        Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also move them to different Plans/Boards and retain history when reorganizing or re-assigning tasks.

                        See discussion at https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14890458-allow-tasks-to-be-moved-between-plans-boards

                        • 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.

                              Guest users should be notified by e-mail for any new assignments, due dates and late tasks. At the moment, only Members and Owners receive reminders for assigned tasks.

                              1. When a task is assigned to a guest, they should receive an e-mail with the information sent to their e-mail address outside of the Office 365 tenant.

                              2. Reminders sent to the guest's e-mail address

                              3. Updates to the task sent to the guest's e-mail address.

                              • Allow us to have Custom Progress Status’s

                                It would be nice to be able to create custom status’s for your board.

                                We use additional status’s for when we are working on a task. For example something may be in progress but we would set the status to Waiting on Customer or Pending Testing.

                                It would be great to create our own status’s that can be applied to the Plan for better tracking.

                                    • Fixing the function of switch tasks (up or down) on the checklist board

                                      Hi there! The function of switch the task (up or down) on the Checklist board is not working properly. I cannot move the tasks up or down. In the past, a few weeks ago, that option was possible. Could you fix it? It would help us to follow a queue of tasks.

                                        • Show completed tasks in Schedule (calendar) view

                                          It would be helpful to have an option to show completed tasks on the calendar view to be able to look back and see all the items in process/scheduled/completed at a certain time. See what resource capacity is/was.
