  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.

  3. 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.

  5. Filter the Dashboard for the creator of a task

    On the dashboard it is currently not possible to filter by whom the task was originally created. We would like to have this feature as well.

  6. 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'?

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Copy Plan to Existing Group

    The ability to copy a Plan was recently released (see link below) but this only provides the ability to copy a plan to a new O365 Group. It does not provide the ability to copy a plan to an existing O365 Group. Most people do not want to create a new O365 Group for every Plan they have (Group sprawl). Please offer an option when copying a Plan to either target an existing Group or a new Group based on your preference.

    Hi everyone,

    We have updated our Copy Plan experience – please try it out today!

    This improvement includes the ability to choose an existing group or team to copy the plan into (or choose to create a new group). You’ll also be able to customize what gets copied over. Attachments can only be copied over into existing groups/teams.

    You can get more details here – https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/planner-blog/expanding-the-copy-plan-and-filtering-features-based-on-your/ba-p/1483491

  12. Task logs - trace every modification

    I need to trace all the activity performed to a task like:
    - someone changed the title
    - someone changed the due date
    - someone changed the status
    - someone changed the priority
    e v e r y t h i n g.

    And I need to apply notification to this, if needed.

  13. Permissions

    Hi,

    We are looking for setting permission for


    1. Planner( Owner)

    2. Editor
      3.Author
      4.Reviewer

    3. Custom

    This is very critical that the permission should be there, otherwise we cannot control the Planner very well manner as there is chance of purposefully or accidentally users may delete the tasks.

  14. Reoccurring Tasks with planner!!!

    This is an idea that was voted by almost 10k people. Yet the planner team has neglected to update the people. As someone who sells Microsoft products as an indirect partner, I can say sales are being lost because of this feature. Most calendars have such a basic feature and the planner team said they would have it last November, where is it?? Let's be better Microsoft, release the feature.

  15. 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.…

  19. Scrum style board

    If possible, please may you create a dashboard which places the assigned action owners along the y-axis on the left hand side of the screen, and then along the x-axis, at the top of the board, week 1, week 2 and week 3 tasks. In this way, planner can be used as a "daily stand up meeting tool", allowing participants to drag their actions (using a Microsoft surface hub) from one week to the next, or indeed to close their actions. This would be a HUGE improvement, and would be rolled across a large portion of the Stryker organisation.

  20. A view to see all tasks from planners in all channels in a Team

    You can see all tasks from a Planner in a channel

    But you can't see all tasks from multiple Planners in a channel

    And you can't see all tasks from all the Planners that are created in Team

    Basically you can't get a view from multiple Planners...yes, the My Tasks feature allows you to see your tasks across multiple Planners

    ...but a project lead would be interested in seeing all tasks from the multiple planners that exist in a Team

    The only hack is for the project lead to assign themselves every task, then the problem is you can't filter…
