  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Planner Desktop App

    It would be very helpful to have a Planner Desktop app. My team uses Microsoft Teams and uses Planner for our different channel projects. In the browser a person can see all tasks assigned to them across the different Planners that they are tagged in but I am unable to see that in Teams. Our team members would be much more likely to fully integrate with using Planner if they could see this Personal dashboard view in a Planner desktop app.

  6. Planner guest user notifications

  7. Include "Group by Bucket" in My Task view

    Include "Group by Bucket" in My Task view where boards have the same bucket headings. So users can see their tasks by the buckets and in not just their progress state.

  9. Permissions on Planner

    It would be very effective and useful if there will be permission by groups. Now everyone who are in a plan can delete tasks, can change task name description and so on.

  10. Task Notifications and @mention in Planner


    1. Notifications to the task creator on any changes to a task's status in planner

    2. Email notifications should include the plan/board that that the task is associated to or a part of

    3. User should be able to @mention other users within a task

    4. User should be able to create private channels within a team

  11. Extend the description/notes section of tasks: images in the text and text formatting

    The for me most important point is that I can copy requests I got (normally by mail) into a new task. WITH included pictures !!!

    In the most cases I got screensots or pictures wich describe the case more than 1000 words.

    It is not handy to add them all manually as an attachment. Which I can't even link in the text.

    I think the state of the art is a rich text editor (formatting like bold and underline etc.) and the direct integration of images.

  12. Need Richer Commenting UX


    1. Please add a keyboard shortcut to submit a comment after I've finished typing

    2. Let us edit my own comments (with audit history)

    3. Thread comment responses (like in teams)

    4. @mention users in comments

  13. In Comments Section Text erases if you don't hit send or click off the page. Make it auto save and make it editable.

    In the comments section Text erases if you don't hit "send" or click off the page. This can waste tons of man hours by one mistaken click. Make it auto save and make the text editable.

  14. Add Planner to Microsoft 365 Family. Personal and Business Premium.

    Please add Planner to Microsoft 365 Family / Office 365 Home, Personal and Business Premium subscriptions. It already has To Do integration, so this would be very useful.

  15. Planner needs a search function

    Planner needs a search function so I can find a task quicker. Filer doesn't help if you're not sure which bucket it's in.

  16. formatting text in notes section of cards

    In each card's notes section, it would be great to have more journal like formatting for the text. For example, the ability to underline or bold like I do in one note. Any comments all mesh together without visual formatting

  17. 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.

  18. University planner for students

    I want to make a planner for University life, always can't do my essays or another paper in time. It has already gone out of the borders, so I really need a planner to check the deadlines.

  19. Add a free tier for consumers

    To compete with Trello, Planner needs a free tier with limited capabilities, and full capabilities for all Microsoft 365 (personal, education and work) accounts.
