  1. Improve Checklist Functionality

    It would be great to see more functionality with the checklist function in MS Planner. For example, being able to assign members to individual checklist items, due dates for each item, hours for each item etc.)

    • Duplicate / Copy Bucket Lists

      Being able to copy tasks is great, but PLEASE allow us to 1) duplicate / copy bucket lists and 2) Duplicate / copy entire plans (i.e., create a template. PLEASE!!!!!!!

      • Custom Fields

        Enable the users to add Custom Fields. Please refer to Trello's "Custom Fields" add on.

        Also, the Custom Fields should be exportable in the excel report which is planned to be developed in the feedback list.

        • permissions

          It would be great if we could put an entire team into a plan, but some team members can only add something to a single bucket list and the others have read-only permissions. Is this possible? Here I think very strongly of agencies that work with development and concept and designers. One could create a kind of Scrum process where customer advisors can create tasks and afterwards the work can be carried out by the individual departments. Furthermore, there should then be a bucket list such as verification, here the customer advisor can comment again, upload images .... to list…

          • Restore Deleted Buckets

            We need the ability to restore deleted buckets, in a situation where a team member deletes a bucket by mistake it's impossible to recover it, meaning that all the tasks added to that bucket are gone as well. There's not even a warning when you delete a bucket to deter the user from deleting it

            • Show completed tasks in Schedule (calendar) view

              It would be helpful to have an option to show completed tasks on the calendar view to be able to look back and see all the items in process/scheduled/completed at a certain time. See what resource capacity is/was.

              • Print sorted lists of Tasks.

                Would like to be able to print lists of tasks sorted in different ways: print a list of all Tasks in a Bucket or print a list of a member's Tasks. Sharepoint allows exporting tasks lists to Excel which I used to do to print lists to take to a site visit.

                • Improve the card UI

                  Please accent the task description for better visual distinction to the rest of the text (description, checklist items), or use a separator line. Also - allow to display both description and the checklist items - why is that an exclusive option?

                  • batch

                    It would be nice if you could batch create several cards using a line break to delimit name of each card, then have the option to assign them all to someone or put the same due date, etc.

                    • Pasting into Planner gets truncated at the first %lt; symbol

                      Pasting in the contents of text, typically from an email, that includes an angle bracketed email address will have the content of the paste truncated at the first < (less than symbol).
                      This is a problem when you are trying to copy paste an email thread which includes the from/to fields of the recipients in an email.

                      This happens with Teams desktop app, and planner website.

                        Hide empty buckets in My Tasks when sorted after bucket. Why do you see buckets where you dont have anything to do?

                        • Bug: I cannot see any information in Schedule View under any sort for 'Group by' all sections are blank, but this works fine in Chart view

                          Fix the bug or advise me what I am doing wrong. Repeated from title Bug: I cannot see any information in Schedule View under any sort option for 'Group by' all sections are blank, but this works fine in Chart view.

                          I cannot find anyway of submitting this through Support - which is another issue in itself.

                          • Would like the ability to add a person to just one task without them seeing the entire plan.

                            It would be useful to be able to add a certain person to be able to view a certain task or set of tasks within the plans without being able to access the entire plan.

                                Hi team, I believe if we can have a due time bit added with due date field while assigning a card then it would provide better manageability & if a audit history we enabled for each card created then planner can be used for tracking team's work in a better way

                                  • Persistent filters

                                    Can filters be persistent? If I set filter then later close Planner, I want the filter to be there the next time I launch Planner. For example if I filter a board for cards that are assigned to me, the next time I open Planner I want it to still filter cards assigned to me until I remove this filter.

                                    • When filters are applied - collapse buckets that are not in filter

                                      I have over 50 buckets for my team members - if I filter on 3-4 I would like to see the other buckets disappear and only see what I filtered on.

                                        • filter by progress

                                          Can we add the option to filter by progress? So I can filter out cards not started and focus on what is in progress? I am currently using labels to achieve this but it would be more convenient if we could just filter by progress.
