  1. Keywords to set a due date quickly as Todoist

    One of the greatest productivity feature in Todoist is the ability to type Monday, Tuesday and that will set the due date to this next monday. Or there are shortcut such as "in two weeks" etc. That would help create taks really fast and be really appreciated to use planner.

    Exemple : https://get.todoist.help/hc/en-us/articles/205325931-Due-Dates-Times

    • Planner templates

      We as a business require the ability to have planner templates. Whenever we get a new client there is a set process to follow, so within Microsoft Teams it makes sense to create a Microsoft Planner based on a template for that specific type of client rather than having to manually create the same plan over and over and over.

      TaskWorld has the ability to duplicate planners and tasks which means that you can create templates, Microsoft Planner should have the same ability.

        • Add an option to open a link in Desktop App instead of in Online Version

          Add ability to the user to either open a link in the Online Version or directly in the Desktop App. Ideally, the task creator should be able to define the default way of opening the file to streamline the process.
          Unsupported features and slow access due to file size are an issue to have a satisfying speed of collaboration with the Online Versions.

                  • Assign multiple tasks to a person quickly

                    I want a way to assign a single person to a group of tasks quickly.. for example, I want a 'least clicks' method of adding myself to all the tasks in one column. I find the current method of assigning a task far too many clicks

                      • Enhance Checklist Functionality

                        The ability to add start and end dates and assign members to the checklist items and use them as "sub-tasks" to appear in the schedule view would be extremely helpful in tracking multi-step projects across a large group of employees.

                        • Dollar Values

                          It would be really helpful if tasks had a place to enter a dollar value for each task, and especially helpful if there was a budgeted and actual, which could then be shown in the graph section so that you can see if a project is on track budget-wise.

                          • Do not allow deletion of tasks

                            Allow configuration flag to control if users of a plan are allowed to delete tasks. This would be useful to ensure that the task itself and all the information documented on the task are available for reference vs lost forever.

                            • A separate To-do tab for every channel in the team

                              I have 6 different channels in my team, but the tasks are like an overview of all(general channel).
                              Not very ideal, when I have to filter every single time when I have to check the tasks in the channels.

                              Is it possible to have a separate To-Do list for eery channel?

                                • touch support

                                  When using Planner on a windows tablet it is impossible to scroll the items without getting out a pen, and even then it is not easy. The planner office 365 web application should have full touch support for scrolling, moving items etc. This should also be available through the teams pages.

                                  Not having this in the application is losing usability. Additionally part of the idea behind Kanban is to move the notes physically so it feels like you are achieving something. Currently you cannot achive this with a tablet only with a mouse.

                                      When I'm typing a comment reply on a task, if the page closes or I accidentally click outside of the task, when I go back to the task, my comment that I've typed out (but didn't submit) is gone. It would be nice if it saved as a draft. Our comments at this company can be lengthy. MS Planner is working out great! A few more tweaks and it will be extremely powerful! Keep up the good work!

                                        • Increase the number of tasks a plan can have

                                          Increase the number of tasks a plan can hold to allow for year to date planning. Estimated upper limit should be around 10,000 tasks for a high intensity process team to be able to plan YTD workloads effectively.
