  3. Allow users to assign a 'workload to a task'.

    Allow users to assign a 'workload' to a task. Not just start and enddate, but an amount of hours lets say. The task might span a month, and in that month you have i.e. 16 hours to spend on that specific task.

  4. Sub-task due dates

    While a plan has a final due date there are interim tasks (sub-tasks) that must get completed for the entire plan to achieve its state due date completed.

    For that


    1. Each sub-tasks should get assigned to specific people with their due dates.


    2. Those subtasks must show up in their individual to-dos so that they know what they are working on. (this part is done


    3. If the change their due date then the team could know if the overall task will be completed in time.


    Therefore please add the option to create due dates & assignments on the subtasks. It is…

  6. Gannt view

    This app needs a Gannt view, and more than that you should be able to group tasks by team member. All the tasks assigned to John for example. This App needs work for continual service based organisations

  7. LABELS

    Along with the other's stating more Label colors, it would be nice to have the label color show in the schedule view (more visual).
    Currently you can filter by label, but it doesn't color code by label (shows all items white on schedule view). The only time color shows up when an items is "Late", and then it's highlighted Red.

    Would also be nice to re-order the labels instead of ROYGBIV order.

  9. Display more than one plan in the schedule view

    Currently the schedule view is only available at the plan level. It would be useful to have it also at the hub level and allow the user to select the plans (up to all of them) that they want to display in the schedule view. In many cases, the scheduling of a new task depends on what other tasks are already assigned to that same person.

  11. Master calendar/schedule across all my different teams

    I need to combine all of my different teams into one big calendar. We are an art center, with lots of different things going on in the building and out in the community. I want to have the option of seeing them all at once in a calendar format. In other words, I would like to be able to share a "plan" across teams so that multiple teams can contribute to a single calendar- for example, multiple teams/departments can all contribute to a single social media plan/schedule. right now social media would have to be a plan within each team,…

  12. Need the ability to add hours budget and actual for a given task.

    We work with multiple projects (plans) using multiple tasks and resources on each project, sometimes multiple resources on any given task. While having a start date and end date would be essential to get any sort of timeline view, either on a Calendar/Schedule/Gantt view, we also need to see the budgeted hours and the actual hours charged against that task to know if we are within budget, as well as on time.

  13. Tasks per hour with timeline view.

    Allow functionality of booking tasks in per hour with timeline view. For example, an engineer has a job which will last 1 hour at 9am and another job which will last 2 hours at 10am. The ability to book a task for a certain amount of time and to also display that on a timeline view, preferably with showing multiple persons on the same page.

  14. I would like to be able to see all tasks due during the week in the schedule mode instead of seeing (+4, or +6) more.

    I can see in the schedule portion that I have certain tasks that are due. Example on 10/30, Open a new work order.
    If I want to see all the tasks due that day, I have to click the link for "+6 More." I would prefer if it showed all task that day. Or at least having the option to do so.

  15. Add schedule view to mobile apps

    Please add the schedule view to the mobile app. Add the ability to view the list of tasks and drag and drop to the days as a way of planning order.

  17. Ability to assign time / days to tasks and see what time / days are remaining.

    For each task, you add into Microsoft Planner, you can add a set amount of time or days resource like a timesheet. You can see how many days or time is remaining for each task and not just task deadline.

  18. Better Outlook Integration - 2 way sync, private instead of ICal, etc.

    The current way of syncing between Planner and Outlook is very unintuitive, and not secure (it requires you to publish your planner schedule to the web).

    I would expect more seamless integration with the Planner schedule where it synchronizes to Outlook without requiring an ICal link, and a 2 way sync so details can be updated either in Outlook or in Planner.

  20. Task dependencies! One can't even plan a wedding without this!

    Dear Planner Team,

    I work for a very large company that is in the process of rolling out Trello because Planner lacks this ONE feature.

    We get it.

    Microsoft needs to be careful not to cannibalize it's Project business.

    That said, there are plenty of other vital features in Project that will sustain that product.

    Have you never heard of the Innovator's Dilemma?

    Allowing the low end of the market to be stolen out from beneath you is a very un-Christensen thing to do.
