  4. Cumulative Flow diagrams

    As a kanban tool, would be amazing that Planner saved datetime of every event of change of bucket. With this, Planner would use Lead Time and Velocity as system KPI's and use that information for dinamicaly build Cumulative Flow diagrams, type of charts mandatory in a kanban tool.

  6. Comment a comment :-)

    The impossibility of modifying any comment added is pretty limiting. It would be nice to have the possibility of modifying any comment, tracking the modification accordingly. Moreover, comment below a specific comment (like in Facebook or Team to make it easy) will enhance its performance terrifically.

  7. To-do tasks reporting to planner to show team capacity

    Have to-do tasks report to planner charts so management can see full workload and capacities of team members. These tasks can be categorized in a bucket of "individual tasks" or something of the sort to represent that they are not planner tasks. A workload impact selection for tasks in planner would help as well. Being able to select the anticipated workload of a task over its duration similar to priority i.e. heavy, medium, light

  8. Would be awesome to get an analytics export from Planner.

    Would be very beneficial to export some analytics from Planner based on timeframes with in-progress, completed, and not started stats.

  9. View completed tasks in Bucket chart

    We want to be able to see Completed tasks in the 'Bucket' chart. It makes no sense to hide them!

    Also, could the completed tasks not be crossed out, so they're easier to read once completed.

    Thanks

  11. Charts Y axis and X axis should be able to change as per requirement or should provide feature to define our own chart

  12. Timeline view in Planner

    I would like to visualize all tasks in Planner in a Timeline view similar to the functionality in the old Task lists. Great if you could get a bar (or call-out) from start to end date by task or assigned person. The graphic could preferably also show progress/status by using for instance colors/patterns. The existing outlook based "schedule" is not providing a good longer term overview for planning purposes.

  13. Please change the colors on in the charts section to be color blind friendly

    Some members of my team are color blind. Your color selection for the automatically generated charts is not good for them. It would be great to be able to click on a color blind friendly pallet option.

  14. Provide a "Charts" view of all plans

    It would be immensely helpful if there were a "Charts" view as there is within 1 plan, across all plans. So that a Manager can view workloads of all staff and re-allocate between staff member where necessary.

  15. diagram

    I would like to include all completed tasks in all of the charts views, or at least have the opportunity to "turn these on or off". Today I can see bars which are color coded as Not Started, In Progress and Late but no bar corresponding to Complete (except for in the circle diagram).

  16. Group by and Sum by numeric custom fields

    I would like to be able to add custom numeric fields to tasks, ex: EstimatedCost, EstimatedBenefits, etc. Later, I would like to see Charts with the Sum of those fields grouped (or split) by the desire criteria, ex: by assignation, bucket, label.

  17. Hide/show completed tasks

    It would be useful to be able to toggle showing and hiding completed tasks in the chart view to allow different use cases (e.g. project sprints vs ongoing task management)

  18. Change layout/size of charts

    Allow an option to change the size/layout of charts. The priority chart could be thinner for example to allow the bucket chart to be wider when needing to view more bucket details.

  19. Clicking on a segment in a chart should show the filtered view of that selection

    Currently, hovering the mouse over a segment in a chart shows the name of the bucket/category and count of items, but clicking on that segment does nothing.

    I feel like clicking on a segment should bring me to the board and apply whatever filters are producing that segment in the chart.

  20. Hide Diagramms or Charts

    Hello everybody,
    I think the Planner app is excellent.
    One little thing would improve it a lot for us.
    It would be great that not everyone is able to see the diagrams.
    It's a problem for legal reasons. So everyone can see the performance of another and measure or compare the performance. It would be great to have the possibility to hide it for some.
