    • Subtasks

      It would be good if we are able to create a subtask to an existing task.

        Thank you for your interest and feedback!

        Reading the comments on this thread, they seem to follow two different asks. If you’re suggesting dependency between tasks (ie. task A must be completed before task B), please visit this thread: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525/suggestions/13976094

        If you’d like to suggest improvements to our existing checklist functionality, please share more with us in a comment below!

        Thanks,

        The Planner Team

      • Task Templates

        Allow the creation of "Task Templates", which have a default set of properties (due one week from today, checklist items, assignment, etc.)

          Thank you for your feedback!

          In addition to delivering the ability to copy tasks (within and across plans), we’re now working on a feature to copy an entire plan. You can find updates and discussion for that topic here: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525/suggestions/14744172

          Regarding task templates in particular, we’d love to hear more about what you have in mind. If there’s a particular use or scenario in which you would find a task template handy – let us know below!

            Thanks again for all of your feedback!

            We love this idea too, and want to hear more about how you could use a timeline view in Planner. If you have any ideas or scenarios in particular, we’ll continue to read through these comments as we consider this feature.

          • View All Tasks Assigned To a Single Person

            Currently tasks can be viewed by Assigned To only within a particular Project. It would be helpful to search globally in Planner by Assigned To rather than having to review assignments Plan by Plan. This change would make evaluation of workloads much easier.

            • Plans deletion/archive

              As I saw that when you delete a Plan all conversations, Groups etc are deleted could be useful to have another Status for that Plans, maybe an "Archived" status, maybe visible in another dashboard or something similar.

                We’d love to hear more about the following:
                1. When would you delete or archive a plan?
                2. How long would you like it to be accessible?

                Feel free to include any specific scenarios where archiving a plan would be useful.

                We appreciate your feedback and look forward to reading through your comments!

                  Beyond the iCalendar feed, we will continue to explore our options for adding tasks to Outlook Calendar automatically. We would love to hear more of your thoughts on the following:
                  -What information from tasks would you like to carry over to Outlook Calendar?
                  -How many different plans would you like to view on your Outlook Calendar?
                  -Any specific scenarios or examples of how this would fit into your workflow
