How can we improve Planner?

Allow external users to view/edit tasks.

We have sub consultants that we collaborate with on a daily basis. It would be nice to have different levels of permissions to view tasks, edit tasks, and / or create tasks.

        We need the same. This is a principal blocker in adoption in my company to migrate from Trello to Microsoft Planner

        Adding my support to this request. It would represent a significant improvement.

        This will be a key feature in collaborating with teams across multiple companies. I'm looking forward to seeing when this feature is implemented.

        And RIGHTS assigments is a big part of this - externals should be either RO RW or editor, and once this works for externals, it is JUST as important for internal members :)

        Should allow for users to be assigned to unique/single tasks without automatically giving them full access to the whole plan/group unintentionally...

        Please make this planner available in normal Office Online as well, otherwise Microsoft will lose customers or they did already, like in many other topics (mailing - gmail, planner - trello, phone - android, etc.)
        Please prioritize this and add this to public MS sites not only o365 only.

        Thanks,

        Yes, I agree with the comments so far. I too need to be able to share with external consultants. Therefore, I have now chosen to go down a different route and use Trello instead.
