  1. recall last view

    How is it possible that board view always defaults to bucket? Please allow us to recall the last view. I prefer to view by label and it is sooo tiresome to have to always re-set the view. My current workaround is using in chrome browser with a simple extension that allows me to select preferred filter view. This also color-codes the cards by label color which is also very handy.

  2. Enable Copy & Paste to Create a List | This is available in TRELLO.

    In Trello, you are able to copy a single column list from Excel or Word and paste it into a Check List. Hit enter and Trello will drill down and create a single column list based upon what you copied and pasted. Helpful when entering multiple check list items at once!

  3. More Labels

    We need to be able to have at least a dozen labels, not six. And with that, more color options.
    Thanks

  4. Associate time with each task

    Each task within a project takes a different duration to complete. Once we have an option to add the necessary time needed to complete a task, things will get much, much clearer.

    Example :

    (3) tasks are assigned to John
    (10) tasks are assigned to Paul

    While the chart shows that Paul has much more tasks than John, (making it look like Paul is working the most) it doesn't actually reflect the reality of the case since John's tasks take about 10 hours each (3x10=30 hours total) while Paul's tasks take around 1 hour each (1x10=10 hours total)

    If we…

  6. The Planner could be better if we could copy plans AND copy the assignments too.

    Be do events, 5/month in 4 different cities and our Plan is the same for each event. To my knowledge Planner will not copy a plan AND the person it is assigned too. Asana allows you to copy the complete plan and just change the name.

  8. I need a way to assign individual task to multiple people to complete individually.

    Currently I'm trying to use planner to help manage my onboarding process for new employees. I would like to have one plan that every new employee goes through and when they complete the task it doesnt go away for other users, just them.

    This is critical for measuring progress and being able to see where each individual is under one dashboard.

  9. Bucket wise, "list view" of tasks required.

    I have noticed that there is only board view of tasks. For ease in scrolling thought the task, I require bucket wise list view option.

    This will help us better navigate through the tasks.

  10. Link other Tickets to existing tickets as it relates to similar issues

    Currently I use a work around method where I link the issue from its URL as a related issue as a reference.

    Anyway we can have a feature that looks for existing tickets to link other tickets to?

  12. Option to edit Bucket Width or Buckets View

    There should be an option to edit bucket width or the amount of buckets you can see in a single window or the ability to choose how you want to view your buckets, i.e. side to side or one on top of another. Also for example, if I have 7 buckets, I can't view them all in a single view and have to scroll which leads to missing a few things sometimes.

  13. Allow people to define the notification messages that are sent out.

    USE CASE - team members, due to their overly well-developed sense of importance, special-snowflake-osity, and emotional sensitivity, take undue umbrage at receiving a message that implies that they have been "tasked" with work. This could be addressed by allowing a task owner (or perhaps better, a site owner) to define the notification message text, e.g. "You have been asked to review and contribute...".

    The snowflakes among us would be less, though certainly not totally, likely to melt down when a task card is created for them.

  14. Refresh filter

    It would be nice to have an easily accessible 'Refresh Filter' button within the Filter option. If I have my board filtered on multiple items and update cards, I don't want to have to clear and refilter how I had it before. I would like the current filter attributes to be applied to my active filter.

  15. Add the option to hide/show the field "Assign To"

    I use Planner to organize my own activities, that way, as all activities are assigned to myself, I would like to hide the Assign to field to increase the useful space on the screen.

  17. Ability to save filter settings as a custom page. It would be a link on the side, same idea as "My Tasks" page.

    Just like the "My Tasks" link on the side takes you to only your tasks - I'd like to filter tasks based on certain criteria, and save that as a custom page/link.
    ie. filter everything in a certain bucket, such as a preparation bucket, and that is unassigned - save this setting as the "Preparation Queue". Do the same thing for the review bucket, and save it as "Review Queue". Then any team member who is available to work on Preparation or Review, can easily find what needs to be worked on next by a click of a button.

  20. When will you provide an import excel feature into planner?

    Currently, a plan board can be exported to excel from Planner. If an import feature existed, the export could be imported into a plan in a different Office 365 group or tenant. This would add great value to cross-company (tenant) support for Planner, allowing import of Planner templates for all types of task tracking.
