  2. Microsoft Teams integration with iOS App

    We really need to see our Planner boards from Microsoft Teams in the Microsoft Planner App! Planner is becoming one of the most used tabs in Teams, and extending that out to mobile is very important!

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    In the latest update of our iOS app, we’ve added the ability to access all your plans from Teams within the Planner app. On the Planner hub, you’ll see plans from Teams included within the Recent plans and All plans sections, as well as their associated team and channel information. You can favorite a plan for easy access and then work on it in Planner.

  3. Enable Grouping by label

    Enabling the Group by lable would be a good thing - so that the differing workstreams can be easily seen

  10. Increase task description character limit

    The current 1,000 character limit for tasks description is far too small. This should be increased massively or be unlimited.

  13. Chart View GROUP by DUE DATE

    Prior to the O365:Planner update 07/25/17
    In the CHART view, the option to GROUP by (DUE DATE). This was very helpful as it displayed all tasks in descending order based on date the task is due. Please bring this function back.

  15. Add "all Plans" with search to the iOS App

    In the current version of the only plans with assigned tasks are listed. I need to visit also plans where i have not been assigned to a task.

    And in a List "all plans", a search menu would be help to find a plan out of 180 quickly

    Hello, 
     
    The iOS app now supports Intune MAM and Certificate-based authentication. This does not include conditional access, but this something we are working to support in the near future. 
     
    Thanks!

  16. Even though we have multiple plans per Channel in Teams. Currently can only see a single plan per Team in Planner.

    I can create multiple boards per channel and multiple channels per team in Teams but when I go to Planner all I see is one plan/board per Team. I would like to see all plans established in Teams in Planner. OR, at the very least add the Charts functionality to plans in Teams.

    We have fixed this issue – you should now be able to find all of your Plans (whether created in Teams or not) in Planner.

    Thanks for reaching out and supporting this thread!

  17. View Buckets progress as charts

    This seems to have been mentioned in many different ways as suggestions, this really is essential to use as a project management tool, any PM needs to be able to report & track stages of a project, not just tasks.

  18. Checklist Improvement

    The checklists need to be more edit friendly. Also sometimes my checklists that I fill out with 10-12 pieces of information either completely disappear or half way disappear. Sometimes my descriptions also disappear.

  19. Show task progress by Bucket, not just by Member

    On the Charts screen, there is a large graphic showing task progress by Member. Add the ability to pivot this on Bucket as well.
