      Hello,

      We’ve started development on the first item:
      1. Support viewing Planner Tasks on an Outlook Calendar
      We will add the ability to turn on an iCalendar feed (.ics feed) for the “My Tasks” view and for each Plan. You can subscribe to this feed in Outlook to see Planner tasks in context with your other events.

      We expect to start work on the second item soon:
      2. Create a Calendar/Schedule visualization
      We’ll create a new view that allows you to easily view and edit tasks in the context of a calendar.

      Thanks!

    • Integration with outlook tasks

      New tasks created in Planner should also be seen in outlook

      • Due date notification

        If a task is late (the due date has passed), please make sure to send a notification to both the owner and anyone related to the task (coworkers, team leader,...).

          Thank you for all the feedback. We have started development on a Due Date notifications feature. This feature will send notifications for tasks at various intervals before they are due, and also for tasks that have recently become past due.

          Thanks!

        • Provide the ability to create Plan templates with existing tasks that can then be used to create a new plan

          Rather than having to create every plan from scratch it would be good if the system allowed for the creation of Templates with pre-existing tasks (like in Word/Excel). This would allow a new plan and its tasks to be created from a template saving a lot of time.

            Thank you for your feedback!

            As a first step, we are working on delivering the ability to copy a task within a board. Updates on this feature can be found on this thread: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14914122-copy-a-task

            After this is complete, we will explore this functionality for plans as a whole. Much of the work involved with these features will be able to carry over to templates. We are actively thinking about what the best plan template experience is. We would love to hear more about specific scenarios you would find templates useful for and what information you would want to carry over between templates. Any examples or ideas are appreciated!

          • Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards.

            Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also copy or move them to different Plans/Boards that you are a member of.

              Thank you for the feedback! We have added this feature to our roadmap and are currently figuring out how to create the best experience around this. As we work on this, we’d love to hear more about your specific scenarios for moving tasks between plans, and what information from a task you would like to move over.

              As a first step, we started developing the ability to copy a task within a plan. This thread can provide an update on that feature: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14914122-copy-a-task

              We have also noted that some comments are interested in the same functionality for moving buckets between plans – we will keep this in mind and address this after we complete copying a task between plans.

              Thanks!

            • Gantt chart view

              I want to be able to make tasks dependent on other tasks, and see them in a Gantt chart view, similar to TeamGantt.com.

              • Email Notifications and Alert Options

                OK, so working out loud is good.... to a limit. Please enable settings that reduce the very high spam content currently coming from planner. Not everyone in the group wants to know ever movement on every task. Enable users to subscribe to various types of events on tasks. Hopefully at some time there will be some consistent settings like priority etc, that can be used as user selectable alert filtering.

                      Thank you for the feedback! We love that our customers are interested in utilizing Planner in this way.

                      As a first step, we have added exporting to Excel to our roadmap and have changed the title of this thread to focus the conversation on this feature. Our team would love to hear more about the specific scenarios you would like to use this for so that we can build the best possible experience around this!

                      Thanks!

                    • Easily add Planner Tasks from within Outlook client and Office 365

                      Emails consume too much time and energy. As an email user I want to only view an email once and should be able to reply/forward to a person or Outlook Group/SharePoint Site, schedule a Planner task, and/or archive the email for future reference.

                          Thank you for your feedback!

                          We have started development on a Filter feature that includes the ability to filter tasks within a board using keywords. This would allow users to quickly find tasks they are looking for based on a search term.

                          Beyond finding a task within a board, we have noticed a lot of comments mentioned searching for items across plans in the Planner hub. We have taken note of this and would love to hear more about the specific scenarios you could use this functionality for so that we can create a great experience around this.

                          Thanks!

                                    Thank you for the feedback!

                                    We are still thinking about how we can best build this feature and are considering adding the ability to “Group by due date” within the Board and My Tasks view. What do you all think about this direction? We would love to hear more about specific scenarios you would be able to accomplish with this, or what would be most helpful to you and your team.

                                    Thank you!

                                    Add the ability to schedule tasks every day, every Wednesday, every last Friday of the month etc...

                                    • Link Planner with Office 365 Tasks

                                      It would be great to have the option to make tasks created in Office 365 Tasks available in Planner

                                      • I want a "Convert to Task Planner" button for emails

                                        Most of our tasks come in via email, a simple button to convert it to a planner task would be imperative, otherwise it renders the planner a little bit pointless for us.

                                          Thank you for your feedback! We are still considering our options for this feature.

                                          In the meantime, Flow can be used to automatically create tasks in Planner from your email. Here is the link to the Flow template: https://preview.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/67477f30373611e7870df906aa521b7a/create-planner-tasks-for-flagged-emails-in-office-365/

                                          We are continuing conversations with our friends on the Flow team to explore other Planner integrations, and would love to hear more about how you would like to use emails with Planner!
