Ability to filter cards by people, labels and tags
Ability to filter the cards on a board by people, labels and tags to be able to view e.g. only the cards with a specific label or with a specific hashtag in the title
We’ve just released a Filter menu in Planner where you can filter tasks by due date, label, or assignee. You can also enter a keyword to search for a task by it’s title!
We value your suggestions and comments highly – thank you for contributing to this feature.
Let us know what you think!
To send us a message, open the Office Help menu (question mark icon in right corner of Planner or Office 365 menu) and select “Feedback”. Include the word “Planner” and it’ll make it’s way to us.
To share your thoughts with the Planner community, include #MicrosoftPlanner in a Tweet.

This is great, but please also add Bucket as one of the filter types.
Lorraine Stevens commented
Great addition but agree with the comments below - need the ability to filter across plans.
Jason Reed commented
I agree with being able to filter assignee across all plans. That is very much a required feature for me.
I agree, when will this be available within the Teams view?
Great - when will this be added to teams?
JF DEMEYRE commented
Great update. Could you add a filter on bucket ?
Great update - Add filter across all plans.....
Jay Sperl commented
Well done! We are really pleased to have this functionality added. It will help us manage our tasks better and more easily.
That said, is there a way to filter by 2 keywords (an Or, or an And function)?

Thanks for this awesome feature, can you extend it to be able to filter across all plans, not just within one plan?

I have setup planner and added numerous to-dos but find it unmanageable without the ability to search or filter. I'm now re-evaluating using it. Glad the development is done ... how soon is "soon"?
Also, it would be nice to have a couple free fields on the cards for cross reference purposes. In my case I've got a list with assigned task numbers and would like to have a separate searchable field for that. Like the other suggestions about sorting.
Saif Boras commented
it would be nice to sort all the tasks under each bucket by
who assigned the task.
whom assigned to.
Please add filter by tags please! Otherwise function is very limited in use.
I agree. This is a must have. Without the ability to sort or filter labels it makes having the field redundant
This is a must have feature. Currently you can only "group" by category. If there was a "filter" by category and a "filter" by user we would switch from using Trello. Without filtering large Planner boards become unmanageable.
couldn't agree more - the Labels serve no purpose unless you can filter by them.
How has this not been done?

The filtering should work across boards to better manage team members that belong to multiple groups!

Like Trello..Planner needs to have a powerful filter to allow filter by person, keyword, or label. Also allow for unlimited labels.
