  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. 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!!!

  7. 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'?

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  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. Add member and date in the verification List

    As Trello, it would be very useful if in the verification list, the card owner, could tag a member to do specific tasks.

    Also it would be good if the owner could add a due date for that specific task.

    Exemple:

    You have your task (card) and inside your task you have your verification list that have other sub tasks on it that will have different people to realize it. So if you have a list with 10 sub-tasks you can mark each line to a different person.

    Also you can add a due date for each one of this…

  15. 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

  17. 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…

  20. 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.
