      Thank you for your feedback and patience!

      As an update, we haven’t reached this feature on our roadmap yet, but are wrapping up some larger items this month that will get us closer. We’ve been discussing how to best implement this feature, and love reading the comments on this thread. Please continue sharing how you would use an export to Excel feature and what you’d like the spreadsheets to look like!

      Cheers,

      The Planner Team

        Hello!

        Thank you for your feedback. We’ve added an export to Excel feature to our backlog and hope to begin working on it soon. We will update this thread with any news!

        In the meantime, we’d love to hear more about how you would use this. What information from your tasks would you like to export? How would you like them to be formatted in Excel?

        Cheers,

        The Planner Team

      • Reporting with Planner

        Planner should provide a quick and easy way to report regularly. For example, a view of what was accomplished during a specific week would be helpful, so a date filter and a status filter may be needed. Additionally, a static snapshot would be helpful, for reporting to executives that require information push, so a way to group projects in addition to 'favorites' is needed, as well as a way to email a snapshot of the group dashboard.

          Thank you for your feedback!

          As a first step, we are planning on developing the ability to export to Excel. For updates and discussion on this suggestion, follow this thread: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/11116770-import-export-from-to-excel-project-etc

          Moving forward we would like to have an API that is geared towards reporting scenarios. In order to build the best experience around this, we would love to hear about the specific scenarios and uses your team would have for reporting with Planner!

            Thank you for your feedback! We agree that this would be very helpful when repeating processes tracked with Planner.

              Thanks for your feedback! We are planning to add the ability to “tag” fellow Plan members and trigger a notification to the tagged member in a future Planner update.

                Hello!

                Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve just launched push notifications in our latest app update. Users should now see a push notification when a task is assigned to them. You can learn more about this feature here: https://support.office.com/article/get-notifications-about-your-tasks-and-plans-cce223d6-b0ae-43cf-a080-266e2414a859

                We’re looking to add more notification types in future updates, so let us know in the comments if there are specific types of notifications you’d like to see!

                Cheers,

              • Android Push Notifications

                There should be a notification for the app itself instead of a email I'm sure I'm not alone on this idea.
