  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    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:

    iPhone App:

    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

  4. 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.

    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!

  6. 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?

  8. 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!

  9. Bucket wise Chart view

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

  14. Increase task description character limit

    The current 1,000 character limit for tasks description is far too small. This should be increased massively or be unlimited.

  16. Offer option to stop posting Planner activities in Group conversations

    Group conversations get quite cluttered with activities in Planner eg. Task xyz assigned to John Smith. Would like the option to turn this off

    Thanks for your feedback. We now set posting Task Activity (Task Assign and Complete) to the Group Conversation to Off By Default. Plan/Group owners can turn this setting on/off in the “Edit Plan” dialog.

  17. Add a bucket-level chart

    Add a chart that shows the distribution of tasks across buckets (and their completion status color coded like in others).

  18. Checklist Improvement

    The checklists need to be more edit friendly. Also sometimes my checklists that I fill out with 10-12 pieces of information either completely disappear or half way disappear. Sometimes my descriptions also disappear.

  19. Show task progress by Bucket, not just by Member

    On the Charts screen, there is a large graphic showing task progress by Member. Add the ability to pivot this on Bucket as well.
