  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. 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. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Copy Plan does not copy attachments of the type link

    Copy Plan does not copy attachments of the type link.
    We wanted to use planner for onboarding and as project templates and attached relevant links for the various tasks.
    Unfortunately planner does not copy the links nor offers it the option to do so.
    Without the functionality our use cases don't make any sense.

  10. 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.

  11. Deactivate Upload File Cache

    I save a screenshot as screenshot.png in my Downloads-Folder (Win). Then I upload this screenshot to a planner task - works fine so far.
    I save another (different) screenshot as screenshot.png in my Downloads-Folder. In other words I overwrite the file. When I now upload the file in a (different) planner task, planner takes the file from cache => I have the wrong file in the task.

  12. 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.

  14. task owner / task observer

    The possibility to assign a task owner and observers additionally to asignees.

    The assignee is responsible for the task, but the observers also get all notifications and are potentially involved.

    The creator of a task should automatically be asigned as owner.

  16. 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.

  18. Copy Plan just Released but does not offer option to copy attachments

    Really what would be helpful is if you could create a planner template as that is what users are wanting. Copy plan is GREAT but a complete waste if you references to supporting documents attached to a plan (i can see not wanting to copy plan specific documents related to the plan in progress, but the ability to copy attachments in a planner set aside as a template from which to copy is desperately needed...why allow copy of attachments at the copy task level but not at the copy plan level?)

  19. 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
