  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  12. Planner widget allows >20 items to be created

    My team uses the planner widgets for agenda items and actions, but we cannot enter > 20 items. We oftentimes list > 20 items, can the limitation be removed?

  13. Allow Plan creation without requiring Group creation permission

    Currently, in order to create a new Plan, you need to have permission to create a new Group.

    Why not allow people who don't have Group creation permission to at least create Plans within existing Groups!

  14. Limit the ability to delete tasks

    Allow admin control for deleting tasks.
    If not that - somehow track the history of deleting tasks by user.

  15. Comment Notifications

    If someone adds a comment to a task, the person who created the task and anyone assigned to the task should receive an email notification in their inbox in the same way a person who is assigned a task receives an email notification.

  16. Due Dates

    I'd appreciate to have the possibility to see when a due date has been changed by a team member. Currently everyone can change due dates and you won't be able to realize in case you don't know all the dates by heart.

  17. Develop a desktop app for Planner

    It would be awesome to have a desktop app for Planner. I found that my team does not like to go in through their web browsers to access Planner. It would make it a lot more accessible.

  18. Add ability to move Task from one Plan to Another (within the same group)

    Currently the process of moving task to another plan is very time consuming:
    1. Open "more options" for task
    2. Select "Copy task" option
    3. Select target "Plan name"
    4. Click "Copy" button
    5. Again open "more options" for the task
    6. Click "Delete" option

    What I suggest is to add "Move to" in the "more options" popup where I can select Target Plan (exactly as I can currently assign Label to the task).

    The Task can be moved to automatically generated "Moved from other plans" bucket. If the Labels in Target Plans are not compatible they can be simply…

  19. Task box has the same background colour as the calendar view

    It happens recently that the background of the task box is exaclty the same as the background colour of the calendar without any margin around making it really difficult to identify if a task goes over more than one day. Please, change it back to how it was with a drop shadow or a different background so it can stand out.

  20. When copying plans provide an option that allows the user to keep assignment dates and attachments.

    I was excited to see the option to copy plans. However, I quickly became disappointed when I found out that assignments, dates and attachments did not transfer over in the copying process. VERY frustrating. This made the Planner tool much less useful to us.
    This issue could be fixed if in the copying process there was a toggle to select which items the user does or does not want to be copied within the tasks.
    I hope that these type of enhancement is something that you'll consider to make MA Planner the most user friendly possible. thanks.
