    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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 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.

            • 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 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.

                • User level Restriction | Task Assignment

                  Hi Team,

                  I am currently using Planner and indeed its a helpful tool.
                  I have a below suggestion:

                  1) Can we restrict a user to see all the content which we have in the plan and limit user to his/her assignments only. Currently if I am assigning any task to a user he can not only see but also make the changes in other tasks as well. As a Project Manager it becomes tricky to identify who has made what changes in the task.

                  Thank you for this product.

                  Regards

                  • Custom Fields

                    Enable the users to add Custom Fields. Please refer to Trello's "Custom Fields" add on.

                    Also, the Custom Fields should be exportable in the excel report which is planned to be developed in the feedback list.

                    • 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.

                      • Email notifications for Guest users

                        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.

                        • 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

                                We need the ability to restore deleted buckets, in a situation where a team member deletes a bucket by mistake it's impossible to recover it, meaning that all the tasks added to that bucket are gone as well. There's not even a warning when you delete a bucket to deter the user from deleting it

                                      Remove the planner limitation to assign a task to more than 11 people. Currently, if you try to assign a 12th person, you get an error message "You can't assign more than 11 people to a single task."

                                        • It would be great if there was a planner desktop app.

                                          I love that Teams has a desktop app, it would be very useful if the Planner had a desktop app as well.
