Microsoft Planner - Feedback Forum

Welcome to Planner’s Feedback Forum!

We love your feedback and look forward to hearing from you. Our feedback forum is a great place to post your ideas and vote on your favorites. We can’t promise we’ll build everything, but the product group will review all requests.

How it works

  • Create a user account if you want to add a new idea or vote on existing ideas
  • Check out the ideas others have suggested and vote on your favorites (as you start entering an idea, a list of similar ideas may show up)
  • If you have a idea that’s not listed yet, you can submit your own. Please keep your suggestion to 25 words or less and one idea per post.

Thank you for joining our community and helping improve Office 365 Planner!

  1. 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.

      Thank you for your feedback!

      We’d like to hear more about how you and your team would utilize a Gantt chart – please share the scenarios you have in mind. This will help us structure our conversations about pursuing this feature.

      Cheers,

      The Planner Team

    • 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

      • Schedule reoccurring tasks.

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

          Thank you for your feedback!

          We’d love to hear more about how you and your team would use recurring tasks.

          When do you need to set reoccurring tasks?
          What options would you expect?

          Any specific scenarios or examples are extremely helpful!

          Cheers,

        • 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!
