  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. toggle on/off suggested attachments feature

    "suggested attachments" update is not relevant to the main board I use, and clutters up the screen when flipping through cards. I can see how this might be useful for other boards, so is there a way to simply toggle this on or off? Maybe in the board settings?

  6. Integrating Project for the Web with MS Planner

    Integrate Project for the Web with MS Planner so that team members can see tasks assigned to them in Project in their Planner Task List.

    We currently use Project for the Web embedded into MS Teams which is very handy. Being able to integrate with Planner will greatly help.

  7. 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.

  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. 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!!!

  12. 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'?

  14. 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…

  15. The Lord of the Rings Museum

    Hello everyone
    I do not know if I will be able to finish my theme because of the correct copying, but some frames only have photos of the actors, so maybe everything will be fine.
    I want to create a space where everyone can go wherever they want. Hobbits, Elves or Dwarves, choose your room ! And import the iconic weapons to play with your friends and take great pictures.
    You will find an item/weapon under each character portrait representing them. I hope you will have fun!

  19. Add Priority to Graph API

    This idea was mentioned before in the comments on one of the completed tasks.

    It would be great if the Graph API could return the priority of tasks ( Low, Medium, Important etc) so that the Power Automate connector can pick this up.

  20. 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.…
