      • 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

        • 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.)

          • 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.

            • Add more label colors

              I can only see 6 label colors and I need 10. Is there a way to create more label colors or some other way to color code categories?

              • 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

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                        • CREATE PARENT TASK, CHILDREN(SUB TASKS), GRANDCHILDREN (SUB TASKS OF SUB TASKS)

                          Like in MS Project, we need to create the Parent Task and Sub-Tasks and Sub-Tasks of Sub Tasks and so on. If I am creating a webpage I need to create the Parent Task HOME and all sub-tasks (elements) that are included in HOME PAGE. Sub-Tasks of Sub Tasks would be the Sub Pages from the Parent HOME Page and so on. PARENT Task would have option to add Sub-Tasks. When we see the Parent Task we will also able to see all the sub-tasks list. If there are Sub-Tasks of Sub-Tasks we would also see in Parent task. This…

                          • 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.

                              • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                        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…
