  1. Visual Indicator to Show Tasks continues next week

    When viewing Weekly Schedule, there is no visual difference between a task that goes to the end of the week, vs. one that continues into next week. It would be good to know at a glance that this tasks continues beyond this week.

  2. Auto-expand tasks in monthly schedule view

    When you are looking at the Monthly Schedule view, multiple tasks falling on the same day will have to be manually expanded by clicking on the "+n more" hyperlink.

    It would be better if the monthly schedule view could by default show all, and just make that particular week taller to accommodate this.

  4. Task dependencies! One can't even plan a wedding without this!

    Dear Planner Team,

    I work for a very large company that is in the process of rolling out Trello because Planner lacks this ONE feature.

    We get it.

    Microsoft needs to be careful not to cannibalize it's Project business.

    That said, there are plenty of other vital features in Project that will sustain that product.

    Have you never heard of the Innovator's Dilemma?

    Allowing the low end of the market to be stolen out from beneath you is a very un-Christensen thing to do.

  5. Copy a task with link i.e. the same task could be seen in two different Teams

    It would be great if it was possible to copy a task with link i.e. the same task could be seen in two different Teams. When modifying one of them the other would update automatically

  6. Schedule View integrated with buckets

    In the Schedule view, could be nice to see buckets or labels in the vertical axis and show the task as post its with description and resources allocated.

  7. Once the creation of Templates is made and allowed to be assigned to existing Teams, add a Timeline ability to the Plan Tasks

    In the creation of a template, you build a timeline for your tasks by assigning all tasks in your Plan a date. Then when you make a copy of the Template Plan and assign it to a Team, you are asked for a Plan "Start Date" or "End Date". Once either date is supplied and the Plan is copied, all tasks will adjust their dates to reflect the timeline. Having the ability to ignore weekends would be great too.

  8. Re-occurring tasks are needed

    I'm posting this as new because obviously no-one ever reads the existing suggestions. Without the ability to schedule re-occurring tasks, what is even the point of this planner?

  9. Track when to do items for a task are completed.

    It would be beneficial to automatically track when a to do item was assigned to a user and completed. This would allow companies to review completed tasks and assess how the assignment distribution through the team could improve. This would be a helpful quality control feature for managers for all size groups.

  10. Allow users to assign a 'workload to a task'.

    Allow users to assign a 'workload' to a task. Not just start and enddate, but an amount of hours lets say. The task might span a month, and in that month you have i.e. 16 hours to spend on that specific task.

  12. Sub-task due dates

    While a plan has a final due date there are interim tasks (sub-tasks) that must get completed for the entire plan to achieve its state due date completed.

    For that


    1. Each sub-tasks should get assigned to specific people with their due dates.


    2. Those subtasks must show up in their individual to-dos so that they know what they are working on. (this part is done


    3. If the change their due date then the team could know if the overall task will be completed in time.


    Therefore please add the option to create due dates & assignments on the subtasks. It is…

  14. Work hours on schedule

    Now you can plan per day, but it would be nice if you could also give the task a time. for example, if you only have 1 hour to finish it. If this can also be clocked in the system then you know at the end of the project if you are positive or negative in your planning. is it possibible to add sub-users by mentioning names. If people don't have a personal e-mail address but work together with one e-mail adress. For example: the workshop includes: klaas / piet/ jan. task 1 is for klaas, but another part is…

  15. tijden/ klokken op project

    Nu kan er gepland worden per dag, maar het zou fijn zijn als je de taak ook een tijd kon geven. als je er bijvoorbeeld maar 1 uur over mag doen om het af te maken. Dat dit ook geklokt kan worden in het systeem en dat je aan het einde van het project ziet of je positief of negatief bent uitgekomen in je planning. Kunnen er ook sub users worden toegevoegd door namen te noemen. Als mensen geen persoonlijk e-mail adres hebben maar gezamenlijk werken, de taken moeten echter wel verdeeld worden over meerdere personen. dit zou ook een…

  17. Master calendar/schedule across all my different teams

    I need to combine all of my different teams into one big calendar. We are an art center, with lots of different things going on in the building and out in the community. I want to have the option of seeing them all at once in a calendar format. In other words, I would like to be able to share a "plan" across teams so that multiple teams can contribute to a single calendar- for example, multiple teams/departments can all contribute to a single social media plan/schedule. right now social media would have to be a plan within each team,…

  18. Need the ability to add hours budget and actual for a given task.

    We work with multiple projects (plans) using multiple tasks and resources on each project, sometimes multiple resources on any given task. While having a start date and end date would be essential to get any sort of timeline view, either on a Calendar/Schedule/Gantt view, we also need to see the budgeted hours and the actual hours charged against that task to know if we are within budget, as well as on time.
