      Hello!

      We’ve started work on developing a Planner UWP app and will update this thread as soon as we have any news to share!

      In the meantime, our team would love to hear more about how you would use a UWP app. Is there anything in particular that you’re looking for?

      Cheers,

      The Planner Team

    • 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.

        • 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 multiple checklists/due dates per checklist items on a card.

            The ability to add multiple checklist to a Planner Card significantly increases the flexibility of use cases for Planner Cards. Additionally, adding the ability to add due dates to each item on a checklist enhances the ability to manage the activity documented in the Card.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Add an option to open a link in Desktop App instead of in Online Version

                  Add ability to the user to either open a link in the Online Version or directly in the Desktop App. Ideally, the task creator should be able to define the default way of opening the file to streamline the process.
                  Unsupported features and slow access due to file size are an issue to have a satisfying speed of collaboration with the Online Versions.

                  • Print Tasks from Planner

                    It should be possible to print the "tickets" or tasks from planner or at least export to pdf.

                    • 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

                        I'd love to be able to print the plan itself, preferably in a timeline manner for reference and reporting.

                          • TASK Delete - It should not be possible for anyone to delete a task. Task deletion should be restricted to the creator of the task or admin

                            TASK Delete - It should not be possible for anyone to delete a task. Task deletion should be restricted to the creator of the task or administrator of the plan. This has cost us a lot of time and effort and effectively renders what is an excellent system useless for managing task orientated projects with big groups of users because we have no clue who deleted a task or why or when.

                              I want an option to disable notifications for comments.

                              I do not want to email the entire Office365 Group every time I add a comment. You can't disable this.

                              Furthermore, if I did want an email to go out, it should be identified as coming from Planner rather than an email from me.

                              • Planner templates

                                The planner template is so basic for me (as business processes are normally repeatable), that makes the whole app completely useless at its current state. Any time I might save planning with this Canvan apporach, I will lose it as I have to create the same tasks over and over.

                                  It would be nice if it’s able to set Tasks’ due, not only due date but also due time when creating a Planner task. For instance, set due time on the day selected from a calendar (May 17, 2018 12:00 AM).

                                  • Sync Planner schedule with Outlook calendar

                                    Sync Planner schedule with Outlook - at least one-way sync from Planner to Outlook; though two-way sync would be better. What we really need is sync to Outlook *calendar* (rather than to Outlook tasks).

                                    • Sync Planner schedule with Outlook calendar

                                      Sync Planner schedule with Outlook - at least one-way sync from Planner to Outlook; though two-way sync would be better. What we really need is sync to Outlook *calendar* (rather than to Outlook tasks).

                                      • Assign a task to more than 11 people

                                        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."

                                        • Please add a @mention functionality to checklist and comments section in Planner

                                          When I am adding checklist or comments on Planner Tasks then I want to be able to mention a specific employee who the task, or item in checklist is assigned. This way I want the person to be notified.
