When is the app for launch or RC test
iOS app and also to improve the following:
- functionality to assign task to multiple users
- allocate subtasks to different users
- integration with outlook tasks and calendar
- integration with one drive and sharepoint
Gabriel Jaquish commented
As others have said, assigning tasks to multiple users and/or company distribution lists would be great.
Android, iOS and Windows Phone and tablet apps are a must.
Lastly I would love to be able to make tasks dependant, Pivotal Tracker, although aimed specifically at agiledoes, this really well.
2 features that will strengthen Planner for us:
- Ability to assign a task to multiple users
- Integration with Outlook - assigned tasks populating to calendars.
Definitely need iOS apps (phone and tablet) with at least some edit capability - progress update, comments, notes, etc. - if not full editing potential.
Started using planner just recently, have previously used trello. My only recommendation would be the ability to assign a task to multiple people. Or alternatively allocating a secondary assignee for sub tasks

definitely needed for rollout in our 10000+ Company. we work with a lot of contractors - no use, if they all Need office365 + license. we'll then use other Tools. JIRA, Trello, Wrike... - I would LOVE to use Office Planner instead of not integrated Tools, as we also have TFS and alike. Cannot make Business to use TFS though, too technical.
Hi please roll out Planner for IOS app ASAP, its becoming very hard to carry my laptop to all the places i travel and at work sites.
I Need a mobile app
Alex Henry commented
Please make this happen. Planner stands the best chance of getting adopted if it's available outside of Office 365.

I'm a general contractor and pulling out my laptop for tasks is cumbersome on job sites
Yes! I can see this replacing my Todoist app if the iOS app is nice.

Groups is a very bad app.

Mark, for Windowns Phone (windowns 10) with Edge, it's working well too. But I would like a interface and layout more "friendly, which enables connection easier without having to make the way: Edge(Chrome) > Log in Office 365 > Planner.
Would be much simpler and operative have an app.

For what it's worth, running tasks.office.com from a mobile browser appears to work pretty well - at least on my Android phone with Chrome.
Finn Hyttel commented
Agree this is a very desirable App

Is there any update on this matter? :) Tks!
From Safari on iOS, you can get at plans, but Planner doesn't present very well in iOS. It's very slow with drawing the page, and when I switch to Charts view for a plan, it gives me bogus information: 100 tasks remaining, with 0 of them Not Started, 0 of them in Progress and 0 of them Late. Some funny math going on here.... :)
