  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…

  4. 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. 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'?

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. Please respond to your users\uservoice posts.

    A good idea would be to respond to your user's voices.

    Good news or Bad news, say it straight.

    Gantt charts/recurring to erosive or Project sales - deny it or respond with timeframe (And stick with it).

  11. 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. 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…

  14. Assign tasks to internal people who are not in the Group/Team

    Planners are based on M365 Groups (and Teams) - right now if I try to assign a task to someone who is not currently a member of that Group, Planner will let me - and will quietly add that person to the Group. There are PLENTY of cases where we have stray task assignments we need to track, but we do NOT want to add those people to the overall Group for just one task. Please let us reach outside the Team for task assignments within the organization - and let the assignees still see those tasks in MyTasks, but…

  15. Copy the field assigned to when copying a task

    It is desirable to be able to copy the field assigned to when copying a plan. You can do this with other fields but not assigned to.

  16. Tasks by Planner and To Do: Plans in a team under “Shared plans Planner” can’t be deleted!


    1. Add a channel in a team, and create plans by adding Tasks by Planner and To Do tan in the channel.

    2. Uninstall the Tasks by Planner and To Do app from the channel.

    After you do the above, plans shown under the team in “Shared plans Planner” disappears. But if you open the channel in Teams, you see plans still exist in the channel, and those plans can’t be ever deleted.

  17. Tasks need a field to document the date for next update.

    I'm on a team with ~70 tasks on our Planner. We'd like to pare this list down to a subset of items. For the time being, we repurposed a label to indicate that a task should come up at the next meeting. However, we'd also benefit from tasks having a next update date also. It would help us know when tasks are off-track and set goals for ourselves.

  18. OST to PST Converter Software

    To convert the overall data into new healthy PST file just download the InQuit OST to PST Converter software which greatly converts the entire data into PST and provides 100% accurate result. While the MS Outlook does not install in your system you can export OST data such as emails, inbox, sent the item, draft, delete-items, attachment, calendar, notes, task (To, Cc, Bcc, Date, From, Object and Time) into Outlook PST.
    This is the best function of this tool. It is the best replica for the conversion and the IT experts are making it’s for mainly this purpose. After the…

  19. Planner needs to have a two levels of assignment. A task assignee and people watching the task.

    Currently you have assignees and there can be multiple. The must only be one assignee on a task to ensure clarity of ownership of getting the task completed. In addition a planner task needs a watch list of people interested in the task and wanting to be notified when something in the task changes.

  20. Allow move task from a planner in one Team to a planner in a different Team

    It would really help us execute on a tiered kanban if tasks could be moved to another team altogether, and then moved back when comeplete. Right now there is a limitation because Planner tasks can only be moved with a single O365 group. Please enable the moving of tasks between planners in different teams.
