  1. Allow external users to view/edit tasks.

    We have sub consultants that we collaborate with on a daily basis. It would be nice to have different levels of permissions to view tasks, edit tasks, and / or create tasks.

  2. Instead of 1 to 1, allow Groups to have many Plans

    Right now, groups have a 1 to 1 relationship (1 Group = 1 Plan), would be nice for a single group to have multiple plans

    In the latest version of our Android app, we’ve added the ability the group tasks by due date in both the plan board and My Tasks views. Please try it out and continue providing feedback, we’re always listening!

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

  4. Allow multiple plans per group

    Allow a group to have multiple plans. For example, I'm working with a committee that has a set of tasks to be completed and we also want to track ideas.

  5. I really loved it. But I am wondering if there can be multiple task owners for one task.

    I created a task, which has two owners in actual. For example, there is a presentation being conducted by two members, I should be able to make two owners instead of one.

    The latest update of our Android app has now added Charts! Try it out by opening a plan and using the charts button next to the plan’s name at the top of the screen. We look forward to your continued feedback!

  8. Add "all Plans" with search to the iOS App

    In the current version of the only plans with assigned tasks are listed. I need to visit also plans where i have not been assigned to a task.

    And in a List "all plans", a search menu would be help to find a plan out of 180 quickly

    Hello, 
     
    The iOS app now supports Intune MAM and Certificate-based authentication. This does not include conditional access, but this something we are working to support in the near future. 
     
    Thanks!

  9. Mobile app for iOS and Android

    Hello,

    Thanks for all your feedback and for using Planner. We’re happy to announce that new Planner mobile apps are now available for Android phones and iPhone. This is just the start and we look forward to adding many additional features to these apps in the coming months. Please let us know what you’d like us to add by continuing to suggest and vote for features.

    Here’s a blog post with some more information:
    https://blogs.office.com/2017/05/31/announcing-the-microsoft-planner-mobile-app-for-iphone-and-android/

    Android App:

    iPhone App:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-planner/id1219301037?mt=8

    We’re still have a Windows Universal App in the plans and you can vote for it here: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/19461631-windows-universal-app

  10. Even though we have multiple plans per Channel in Teams. Currently can only see a single plan per Team in Planner.

    I can create multiple boards per channel and multiple channels per team in Teams but when I go to Planner all I see is one plan/board per Team. I would like to see all plans established in Teams in Planner. OR, at the very least add the Charts functionality to plans in Teams.

    We have fixed this issue – you should now be able to find all of your Plans (whether created in Teams or not) in Planner.

    Thanks for reaching out and supporting this thread!

    Thanks for everyone’s patience on this item. We’ve completed our first item in this space. We now set Task Activity Email Notifications (Assign and Complete) to Off By Default. Plan/Group owners can turn this setting on/off in the “Edit Plan” dialog.

    We still have additional work planned in this area such as providing more granular controls to which activities will trigger notifications and more control over cases where you’ve been assigned tasks.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

  12. Very important: Make "Delete" a 2-phase operation. Now too easy to accidentally delete a bucket!

    Hi, 
     
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention! In the latest version of the iOS app, when you try to delete a bucket, you should now receive a pop up to confirm the delete before it occurs.  
     
    Thanks!

  13. Missing email notification for Task assignments

    Planner is not sending my team members email notifications when they are assigned a task. What can I do to make it happen?

    Chart view should display bucket wise. So that, we can easily know each bucket status/progress.

  20. View Buckets progress as charts

    This seems to have been mentioned in many different ways as suggestions, this really is essential to use as a project management tool, any PM needs to be able to report & track stages of a project, not just tasks.
