  1. Add and option to create custom progress label for tasks

    Now there's only three labels, 'Not Started', 'In Progress' and 'Completed'. Sometimes we need to label a task as 'waiting Client' or 'Pending'. So it's important to add a custom label option

  3. Planner should not email comments to whole team

    Comments made on a task should not got to everyone on the team site. Should only go to those following the channel where the planner resides.

  5. Show low priority on the card

    Show an icon for low priority (e.g. a down arrow) on the card itself, in the same way that Urgent is shown by a bell and Important is shown by an exclamation mark.

    This would help avoid low priority tasks being done before medium priority tasks... at the moment you have to open the card to see the difference.

  6. Include comments in the exported data to excel

    I am actually looking for task status which a user can add statement of the current status of the task. For now, I am using the comments section for the task update. However, the comments are not included in the data that can be exported to excel. Please include them for easier access of data.

  7. formatting text in notes section of cards

    In each card's notes section, it would be great to have more journal like formatting for the text. For example, the ability to underline or bold like I do in one note. Any comments all mesh together without visual formatting

  8. Desktop Application

    Planner is a great application, but it definitely needs a desktop option, similar to Teams, for those of us at work. I love having Planner on my phone, but I would like to optimize planner via my desktop on M-F.

  10. 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.

  12. Add recycle bin/recover deleted data

    Since Planner sits on top of SharePoint, same principle for delete and recovery should be used. We accidentally deleted our plan thinking they could be easily recovered if needed because SharePoint is supporting this tool, but plans were gone! After raising this with MS support they told us this is by design and our data is purged.

    Please add this functionality ASAP and fire your designers who "forgot" to implement standard workflow used across every MS app.

  13. Add due dates for inidividual checklist items within a task

    We use the planner boards quite a bit and at times one task can have multiple items on a checklist. Some may need to be done days or weeks ahead of others. We alter the due date to help with reminders but having the ability to add individual dates to a checklist item would be very useful and save duplication of tasks.

  14. Persistent settings

    I want to see board view grouped by Progress and filtered by assigned to me.

    I hate having to redo those settings every time I open planner.

  15. Add Latest Comment and Comment Date as Columns in List View

    As a project and team leader I want to quickly view the 'list' view the tasks in progress, but I wish to see the last comment and date when updated so I can filter and check the last input instead of having to go in and click on every task in the board to view. This would make it much quicker and easier to review them all.

  16. 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.

  17. Tags from Teams in Planner to assign tasks to a group of users

  19. Assign task to entire team (or channel) in Teams

    I sometimes have the need to assign a task to the entire team (or channel) in Teams when using the Planner. An example would be if everyone in the team are to update the vacation-plan. Instead of adding each single team-member to the task, it would be nice to use the same kind of feature as @mention you can use in a chat, and it automatically assigns the task to everyone in that team.

    Additionally - no limit as to how many that can be assigned the task or how many items in the checklist.
    Then I would use this…

  20. Carry Attachments from e-mails and moving tasks from to-dos to other sources

    Hello
    According to the functionality in the tasklist of outook it should be possibel to creat tasks in planner from an eMail with attachments.
    Currently the tasks can be seen in planner the section of to-dos -> planned. Even the existens of the attachment can be reconiced in the list.
    Unfortunately is the structure of the planner task not the same as in the planner application, creating a task directly there. As well can't the task in planner from to-dos not be moved to an other source of a teams. This would be esstintial to alocate task to rihgt planner…
