  1. 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.

    • Copy a task

      Need the ability to copy a task, including the checklists and other items within the task. This would allow one to set up a template task, then create many tasks using that template task. This is a different request than the many copy suggestions that have been made already.

      • Allow external users to view/edit tasks.

        We have sub consultants that we collaborate with on a daily basis. It would be nice to have different levels of permissions to view tasks, edit tasks, and / or create tasks.

          • API so I can sync with TFS

            I was looking to sync the board with TFS but need a API to do it. Is there a BE API for this or should I reverse engineer the AJAX calls.

            • People with long names cannot be removed from the plan

              If a person has a really long name, the ellipses to remove them are blocked from being selected and the person cannot be removed from the plan.

              • Swedish translation are very bad

                Please let a Swede take a closer look at the translation of Planner UI. Especially the windows when you create a new Plan. You cant translate "Create a new plan" to "Skapa ett nytt abonnemang" if you translate it back to English it is like ordering a new phone plan.
