  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.)

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Copy&Paste of Images from clipboard.

          It would be nice, if we can copy saved images from clipboard directly to a task.

          An example Workaround:

          1. found an bug in a design.
          2. make an image of it with "Snipping Tool"
          3. copy the content to clipboard
          4. copy the content of the clipboard directly to a task with STRG-V

          • Audit trail for date / assignee changes

            At the moment the due date and assingnee can be changed by any member and this is not tracked or notified to anyone. There needs to be an audit trail of date and actionee changes and actionees should be notified if they are either added to or removed from a task.

            • Change task bucket automatically when the status changes

              It shouldn't be necessary to change two values on the task to assign it to a status and a matching status bucket.

              To get round this:
              1. Default the available status values to match the bucket names that have been created.

              2. When the status changes, automatically shift the task to the corresponding bucket, e.g. Status set to "In Progress" shifts the task to the matching "In Progress" bucket, setting to "Completed" moves the task to the "Completed" bucket.

              • allow to designate default listing for my tasks, change from Bucket to Plan as a default

                My tasks should allow for the default view to be changed. I would like to be able to default to Plan instead of bucket, or the ability to sort by start date in ascending order. if in bucket.

                • When dragging tasks across my board, and need to scroll across to another bucket, the screen should move with me.

                  I'm using Chrome and if I want to go over several buckets. I have to drag the task to where I can get to on the screen, scroll over, then drag again.

                    • Assign colors to buckets or tasks.

                      I'd like the ability to make the buckets and/or individual boards different colors. The flags are not enough. Colors or icons would allow us to see relationiships between tasks or priority status.

                      • Group By default initial view configurable

                        "Group By" favorite view per plan

                        We have many Planners and some are better to view by "Due Date" instead of the system default. We should be able to save our personal initial view when in our Planners.

                          • List View of Tasks

                            Tasks should have a table based list view so many tasks can be see at once. Scrolling through cards on a board often makes it hard to visualize the project as a whole.

                            • Printable Task Portions

                              Provide an option to print the description part of a task or provide the ability to print the entire task with select-able sections. This way you can print the task title, description, and due date or remove the due date and add comments whichever is more important at the time of the print.

                                  • add more than 11 members in one task

                                    An easy solution is tu create an icon (same as a member) that say ALL or that have the Initials or the image of the group, and if this icon is added to a task, all the members will know that they have to work in that task.

                                    • Allow to set a maximum number of allowed tasks

                                      When managing tasks with my team I'd like to define a maximum number of allowed tasks per bucket (at least in a visual way, e.g. 7/5 in red) so I can see if my team moved too many tasks in a bucket.

                                      Also: Defining maximum number of tasks for each person so new task assignment isn't allowed when someone already has a lot of tasks.

                                      • 'Group by Assigned to' Default Option

                                        I wish there was the customization option to make the 'Group by Assigned to' the default instead of 'Group by Bucket' for my company

                                        • Must have the Epic <-> User Stories option in such tool

                                          It will be great if there is a task dependencies (such as in agile env.) there is a epic and it has users stories that belong to that epic
