    • 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!!!!!!!

      • Ability to paste (Ctrl-v) a clipboard image directly into a task

        An essential feature used extensively in Trello - paste a screenshot into a card. Want to move the whole company to Planner, but can't without this feature. The current method of image upload: screenshot, paint, save to desktop, click, click, open, browse, find image, select, open. Yawn. Not useable.

        • Add Story Points / Planning Poker Capability

          Add the ability to add story points to the "task" if people are using the "task" as a Agile board.

          • Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards - Reopen

            This task was CLOSED since the description said "copy or move" but the response is clearly we want to do what the subject line said.

            Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also move them to different Plans/Boards and retain history when reorganizing or re-assigning tasks.

            See discussion at https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14890458-allow-tasks-to-be-moved-between-plans-boards

            • Parent and Children Task Relationships

              Similar to the Hello Epics powerup for Trello. Allow the creation of Parent and Children tasks (children are sub-tasks of the parent). This will essentially allow you to make checklists of checklists.

              • 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.)

                • Shame we can't add emails as attachements in a task.

                  It would be very useful to be able to add emails as an attachement in a task; Easy to manage if it's about following up with an email or that an email si about somehting you need to finish a task.

                  • 30+ posts on here with almost 1000+ votes all contributing to a simple feature of a locked due date or permissions to restrict due date

                    There are over 30+ posts on here with almost 1000+ votes all contributing to a simple feature of a locked due date or permissions to restrict the change of due dates or at least a log that shows original due date for reporting. A simple solution would be a locked field called original due date below is a list of some of the other posts. Let’s rally some votes and make it so planner can work for a business.

                    • Schedule Shifting

                      Allow for selection of multiple tasks on Schedule, and for then drag and drop (or copy/paste) of these tasks to a different starting date, effectively shifting multiple tasks in cases where the schedule needs to be delayed / pushed out.

                      • 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

                        • Have section for completed plans

                          Plans which are completed need not be removed or just be hanging around, provide an option where they can be moved to another section which contains all completed plans. this way group can access them anytime, as well the main planner real estate is not wasted by already completed plans.

                          • Search completed tasks

                            Please allow for the search/filter to search completed tasks. Sometimes need to look up a completed task and there's no good method to do so. I'd want to search completed tasks by the 6 "ribbons", date added, date completed, and who it was assigned to, in addition to the task name.

                                • 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.

                                  • Wasted space - Smaller cards when assigned to people

                                    There is too much wasted space on the page (compared to Trello). If I assign a task to a person, I get almost half the amount of cards onto the screen. This makes me use planner less efficiently as I don't assign the cards...

                                    Other's have already mentioned that the buckets are too wide and too much space between them.

                                      • boards hard to read

                                        I'm a new user of Planner so forgive me if this already exists...but I find it difficult to read boards because "cards" don't have any background.

                                        Cards are white and the board background is white. Having no visual indication of each individual card makes the interface hard to read.

                                        Please make each card visible. Other users have asked for different colors for cards...that would be great, but I'd be happy with even just a light grey default for all cards so I know they are separate cards. Now it just looks like text on a white screen, and it's difficult…

                                        • Vertical scrolling layout option in Board view for all buckets.

                                          Under Charts>Tasks> this vertical layout view of all buckets/tasks with collapsible options is perfect.
                                          Please consider adding this Vertical layout view under boards to allow users to quickly scroll entire projects/buckets. Horizontal scrolling is cumbersome with big projects and not intuitive to new Planner users. Cough Cough...Basec@mp & Trell0 ;)
