  1. Longer descriptions

    The length of the description is unnecessarily short. Longer descriptions need to be put as attachments, which is very cumbersome.

    • Add a priority field that can also be grouped by

      I see lots of suggestions with only 1 or 2 votes for a priority field, so it looks like these are being ignored - The one with the most votes (20) is over a year old and so looks like its being ignored, so creating this new. My team have been using MS Teams and planner for a few months, but already this is becoming a vital requirements. I am a member of over 30 MS Teams, and have 35 tasks on the "My Tasks" view across multiple teams. I need to be able to see what are the high…

            • I suggest to integrate a reporting tool in the planner.

              In order to have a weekly update/report about the created plan, I suggest to add a reporting feature where I can export or view all information regarding the process of the plan. In the planner app.

              • Management Reporting for MS Planner

                We are thinking of having an adoption campaign for Planner but I need to be able to measure 'before' and 'after' to get an indication of how well the adoption campaign has gone.

                I would like to be able to report on things like:

                • the number of plan’s that we’ve got created
                • who created them
                • the members of individual plans
                • the number of plans that any given user is a member of
                • the number of tasks in the individual plans

                Thanks,
                Paul

                • Provide a search facility to find tasks quickly based on name, company name, and (in fact) and data stored in tasks, comments, checklists..

                  Allow search on planner items,
                  1. across plans
                  2. within a plan

                  categorise results by plan, task, and indicate type (comment, name, checklist, ...)

                  • Allow grouping of tasks based on themes and/or owners for better organization of tasks

                    If there are many tasks on the board, the view becomes very cluttered. This is similar to files and folders view - can you imagine there is no folder in explorer?

                      • Time picker

                        Sometimes a Tasks need to start or end before a certain time. Currently planner does not offer the possibility to add a Time. When this time or date is reached, the assignee should be notified upon start or finish.

                        • No notification to assignee

                          Hi,
                          I assigned myself to tasks in Planner and never received notifications. If a person can be assigned what is the point of a task if that person does not get notified?

                          • Remember where I left off

                            Remember the setting change I make to the view. I prefer to have the app open in the My tasks view and be sure by Plan

                              Changes made in a checklist are not saved until exciting the list. Loss of data occurs if a user does not navigate back to the task and just leave the app open

                              • within the integration with teams, allow @mentions

                                I like having Planner inside Microsoft Teams. However, it would be nice if we could @mention a team member within the comments on a Planner task and they would get a notification just like the @mention in a Teams channel. We are moving away from the clutter of email, so any additional integration into Teams is a huge plus. I don't want a notification about something I'm working on in Teams to go to my email. It just doesn't make sense anymore.

                                    We would love to set up predefined groups that can be assigned instead of each individual for each plan or task.

                                    • Add the ability to Reply to a Comment

                                      There should be a "Reply" button that goes with each Comment. As it is used, it will add a new Comment as a subcomment to the one the user replies to. This is a fairly common feature in most forums, and would work well here.
                                      The Reply would work like any other comment, but would appear beneath the original, slightly indented.

                                      • Create a Plan without creating an Office Group

                                        I like using the Planner as a personal tool to simply manage my day-to-day tasks - I like the kanban Trello-esque visual way of doing this. I don't, however, need the sharing capabilities and therefore all the associated 365 group stuff created in the background is superflous. It would be good to simply have an "individual" Plan and not have it create a 365 group. It just feels like there will be whole lot of chaos will ensue with people creating all sorts of groups like "My Plan", "Test Plan" etc.

                                        • Assingment Notifications

                                          Like when replying to Outlook meeting invites, person assigning a task can select whether to send notification ("Send Response Now") to assignee or not ("Do Not Send Response Now"). This would help reduce spam. The current subscription model is too much information/notification.
