      Hello and thank you for your feedback!

      Here’s out latest update:

      We’ve pivoted our work here to focus on our integration with ToDo, rather than an Outlook Add-in. We believe our partnership here will make the end-to-end task experience more cohesive and accessible for our users across different platforms.

      One of our biggest points of feedback is that task management tools within O365 should work together seamlessly. We’ve already begun building the foundation for this, as this is a top priority for us.

      Thank you again for your support and feedback – we’re working hard on this ask and will have another update soon!

      Cheers,
      The Planner Team

    • Provide the ability to create Plan templates with existing tasks that can then be used to create a new plan

      Rather than having to create every plan from scratch it would be good if the system allowed for the creation of Templates with pre-existing tasks (like in Word/Excel). This would allow a new plan and its tasks to be created from a template saving a lot of time.

        Hello and thanks again for your feedback!

        As an update, we’re in the final phases of providing the option to copy a plan. We’re working on wrapping up the finishing touches, then we’ll be testing this feature thoroughly so it’s ready for everyone. We are very excited to deliver this initial capability and will continue to utilize your feedback to make this even better!

        Cheers,
        The Planner Team

          Good news! We’ve started developing a new feature that will allow users to create a new plan as a copy of an existing plan. We are still in the early phases of development so we don’t have an ETA to share at this time, but are equally eager to bring this to life!

          Thank you for your patience and feedback.

          Cheers,

        • Date format

          The date format is fixed to mm/dd/yyyy, could this please be selectable based on your region - for example we use dd/mm/yyyy

          Thanks
