  2. More visible task information in scedule view

    In the scedule view there's only a title shown each task. I would love to be able to see more information in this view. For example: the assigned user, label or note.

    This gives a better overview for who each task is planned for in a team plan.

  4. When Planner has access to Outlook please include what Bucket the task comes from.

    I am a SPED teacher that has to call parents often to gather information. I created one Plan with all my caseload students and they each have their own Bucket. So, when I get a reminder in Outlook to call a parent, I have to access Planner and scan through all the buckets to see what parent I have to call. Please include the Bucket name with the Outlook name

  5. 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. Allow calendar view to be expanded / collapsed further. Would like to see week, month, quarter, year.

    Allow calendar view to be expanded / collapsed further. Would like to see week, month, quarter, year. This would be much more user for projects spanning >1 month.

  7. Only Team members can edit the planner in Sharepoint and/or MS Teams.

    Everyone else can view the planer but not edit it. This is important for the people accesing the board, can see the tasks and the status of new ideas, but they themselves can't do any changes, because they have "read/view only" authorization.

  8. Assign "checklist items" from a task to specific users

    It would be great that you would be able to assign checklist items from a task to a specific user.
    The task might have 1 individual who is responsible (like a project manager), who creates a task.
    The task may have multiple checklist items, which then would have individual users who are responsible for those.

  11. Show overdue/late tasks in Schedule View

    In Schedule View, please make an option to have late/overdue tasks carry over onto the next day, and continue doing this until they are completed.

    I don't want to change the due date, because I want to remember it's overdue. But once the week changes over, late tasks are easy to miss.

  14. Be able to nominate hours for a task not just days

    instead of saying the task will start and finish just in days you can also choose how many hours.

  15. Sincronizacion

    Me encantaría que se lograra una sincronización del calendario de planner al calendario outlook. Que pasa? Resulta que copias el link para pasarlo al calendario outlook, si realizas un movimiento en planner no hace ninguna actualización en el calendario outlook.

  16. Archiving

    Hello, we use Planner in our organization and miss the possibility to archive plans. It would also be good if you could add more than 9 attachments to the plan, because otherwise the group work is very limited.
    Thanks

  17. Add scheduled tasks based on days before or after a start date, not a specific date, so that once the start date is added the other due date

    Then, when a plan is copied, all dependent dates follow and adding the one date off of which all other tasks are dependent, saves a lot of time. Also, please allow attachments to be copied when a Plan is copied.

  20. 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.
