  1. Access & edit the notebook specific to each plan from a mobile device app

    I cannot find a way to access & edit the Notebook for each plan (effectively, OneNote) on either the Planner or the OneNote app.

    The OneNote app gives me access to the general Office365 OneNote, but not the pages specific to each plan.

    I envisaged being able to add hand-written (stylus, apple pen) notes on the Notebook for each plan through a tablet or iPhone. This would allow me to take a tablet to meetings, instead of a paper notebook.

    • boards hard to read

      I'm a new user of Planner so forgive me if this already exists...but I find it difficult to read boards because "cards" don't have any background.

      Cards are white and the board background is white. Having no visual indication of each individual card makes the interface hard to read.

      Please make each card visible. Other users have asked for different colors for cards...that would be great, but I'd be happy with even just a light grey default for all cards so I know they are separate cards. Now it just looks like text on a white screen, and it's difficult…

      • Allow Multiple Planners to be created in a channel from an existing planner.

        Currently, when creating a new planner using an existing planner only allows you to use once where we build a template we would like to use for multiple planners in 1 channel. It gives an error the URL is open in a different tab. Need a work around.

            • Task from email

              Like in Outlook, it would be great to create a task in Planner starting from an email in Outlook, either by simply flag or actual transformation of email into task. In this way, you don't loose all the details which lead to that task and you should also be able to track easily the email discussions around it.

              • Separate buttons for Add Attachment > File, Link, and SharePoint

                If three separate options are necessary for adding attachments, then perhaps they could each have their own button. That would save a step every time I enter a link in a task. (If so, the buttons should be arranged side by side so they don't take up more vertical real estate.)

                • Address field should be active by default when I add a link

                  When I click Add attachment, and then click Add a link, I need to click again in the Address field before I can paste the url. If the Address field was already active, it would save me a step.

                  In Word and Outlook, I often use the keyboard to quickly insert a link without using the mouse at all: Press Ctrl+K to open the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, press Ctrl+V to past the URL, and hit Enter. The Address field is highlighted by default, so I don't need to move my hands from the keyboard to the mouse. It would…

                  • Now people in a given task are equally important - they shouldn't

                    I think that there should be any hierarchical assignment people to task - Microsoft Planner rearranges the order of people.
                    I would like to put them in some order.

                    • View All Tasks For A Team

                      We started using this at work to track multiple projects, but currently there doesn't seem to view all the plans at once. This would be great for managers who want to have an overview of multiple projects.

                            As the task assignor, I do not get email notifications when an assignee completes the task, uploads a file or changes the status of a task. I have to log in the planner several times throughout the day to see the status.

                            The person assigning the task is the main person who should receive notifications!

                              • Current chart should be replace with Gantt chart. Gantt chart will give more precise view about any task.

                                Planner chart should be like Gantt chart (not bar chart, point to be noted) so anyone can track their task. Secondly there should be percentage labeled so that anyone can get to know that how much work has been completed.

                                    • I would like to be able to add a phone number (even as a link) that I can tap on in the Planner mobile app to instantly make calls.

                                      We are using Planner for scheduling service calls for our carpenters in the field and it works beautifully to centralize any information or problems. We even attach a link for directions on Google maps. Since most of our Carpenters are generally bad with technology, adding a clickable link to call the site contact would be phenomenal.

                                      I tried using "tel:+1-555-555-5555" as a link but from what I read it will not work due to security/encryption reasons.

                                          For all comments, email notifications need to be sent to all assigned to that task. That is the main use of Planner. If team members have completed their task; they can remove themselves from the assigned list, to stop the unwanted emails.
