  1. Move than 20 items in a checklist

    Allow for more than 20 bullet points in a planner task, sometimes you just need more.

    • Using the @ command in comments of a task like other apps

      The issue here is that virtually all O365 apps/services have the feature of using @ and a name to specifically alert somebody there's something directly for them. In Word online, for example, the comments section functions this way as does the other office apps where comments are allowed. This functionality should be in Planner's comments so @ functionality is consistent across the apps

      • Allow me to see ALL tasks grouped by date across all plans I own or am a part of

        I like that I can see "My Tasks" and grouped by date which is great for just me but I want to see all tasks across all plans that I own or am a part of so that I can get an organizational view. I order to do this, I need to go into each plan individually.

        • Filter with AND capability (not just OR).

          Currently, applying multiple filters functions as an OR: adding additional filters increases the number of results. Would like capability to further narrow results by applying additional filters, aka apply multiple filters as AND.

          • See tasks assigned to specific person

            If you assign tasks to others you cannot easily follow those tasks and their completion. There should be a filter "Assigned by N.N." in addition to "My Tasks".

            • Use integrated MacOS Notifications

              Native Teams app on MacOs and iOS uses the Teams notifications instead of Apple integrated Notification system.
              These are not obeying the DND etc options with the Mac environment.
              As a result, I get the in-app notification on MacOS for Teams.. but might not be at that machine, and thus never get the notification on my iOS device.

              Please Get Teams app to use the native notifications system instead.

              • Comments disappear if a previous employee leaves the company.

                1. The Global Admin use logic to make the previous employees' email go to his email.

                2. Since then, all the previous employees' icons turned into his icon, and our comments disappeared in the comment session.

                3. Comments will show up for about 30 seconds and we will receive an email from the group conversation, but we will not see a comment in the comment session.

                As a small size company, this issue already caused us a lot of problems, I can't imagine what will happen to a medium or a large size company. We cannot use some plans and…

                • Planner can be much improved by removing a limit on number of assignees per task.e.g. a meeting can have infinite number of assignees

                  Planner can be much improved by removing a limit on number of assignee per task. For example, a meeting can have infinite number of assignee. Microsoft seems to have developed Planner with limited scope not considering the needs of broader usage by businesses, communities and not-for-profits. The Planner development team and Microsoft Leaders/managers and decision makers need to make provision to include the needs of all these communities where bulk of investment goes into Microsoft benefiting from the consumers.

                  • Tag or @ people in comments section

                    It would be nice to be able to tag or @ people in the comments section so they get a notification.

                    • For Microsoft Planner, e-mail notifications to be sent when completion of a task or release of task assignment

                      I would request that an e-mail notification to be sent to members whether they make a comment   on the task or not.
                      By default, Microsoft Planner notification mails such as other users’ task completion or release from other members’ task assignment are not sent to members if they do not make a comment on the task.

                      • Ability to give View-only access to plans under Microsoft Planner.

                        While we currently have a way to give users Guest access to edit plans, we should also have an option to give users view-only access.

                        We have multiple customers who would like to be updated on the process of their plans but should not be able to edit the plan at all.

                        • The monthly view of the schedule calendar in Planner

                          On the web page, if there are multiple tasks it shows at "+3 more" or however many takes and it's right algined so it's confusing becuse it's closer to the date of the next day. Either there needs to be little lines to devide the days on the calendar or the "+3 more" tasks button needs to be aligned under the number of the date it's on.

                          • Add Reaction to a comment (likes, smiley faces)

                            It would be great to add reactions (likes, smiley) to any comment so that anyone can express visually.
                            We can see that comments can be liked from outlook via group email of the very comment. So, same to be reflected in the planner as well.

                              • 365 Planner - Notebook rename

                                to my dismay, you cannot change the name of the notebook associated to a planner group.This is the last of many obvious-things-to-be-implemented that is missing from the Office 365 infrastructure.

                                Honestly, I don't understand how Microsoft could have placed this thing on the market in a such immature state of development.

                                I am really disappointed by my own ICT department, that was not able to detect such a (brown) bomb incoming and by Microsoft itself, which clearly has no respect for its customers.

                                Sincerely,

                                  Also, allow people who can't see the whole plan to still be assigned specific tasks within it.
                                  These ideas would be ideal for Plans primarily hosted by one department but involving a few key personnel from other departments.
                                  As of now, we have to have a broad, publicly viewable plan which we can assign people from other departments to, and the actual plan which only my…

                                    • Track how long a task has been "in progress"

                                      Currently you can only see if a task is in progress or complete by bucket. I would like to be able to track how long a task has been in progress to highlight tasks which have been sitting idle for too long and follow up appropriately with the responsible parties.

                                      • A plan schedule should be a sub schedule( or calendar) of the group schedule

                                        Groups appear by default on outlook. On the calendar view, plan calendar should be a sub calendar under its corresponding group by default. It should not be in the other calendar category. Also, by default when an user chooses to view the group calendar, the planner calendars should be visible as well. The user should have the option to turn off the planner calendars by expanding the group and unchecking them. The current step of having to manually add the planner calendar to outlook from the planner web app will create confusion.

                                        • Appoint one owner and multiple followers

                                          Make it possible to appoint one task owner and multiple followers. The owner is responsible and the followers get updates made to the task.
