How can we make Planner better?

Hide (Archive) completed Buckets

When completing Buckets it would be nice to be able to hide them so they don't take up space, but you still keep them in the statistics.

    The ability to archive completed buckets would make everything so much cleaner. Why track and organize tasks if you cant keep it clean?

    This is a feature that would be very beneficial for our organization. Please consider adding it.

    We use Planner as an organizational tool for our team and this would be a great feature to improve the organization of the multitude of tasks that we have going at any given time.

    Thank you,
    Brant L.

    Hello, I work with Brandon Haley. Due to the ever increasing projects, the amount of buckets begins to increase. It's been a great tool and hopefully we can see this feature implemented!

    Thank you,

    As we have introduced Planner it has become clear we will continue to use it heavily and this would be a greatly beneficial feature and would be one more reason for us to suggest it to our network of clients and colleagues.

    I work alongside Brandon Haley below and it would definitely be beneficial if we had the ability to archive completed buckets. We've adopted Planner into our team's daily activities and it's a greta tool!

    Dear Microsoft - Please introduce a way to archive buckets.
    My process is to have a bucket per initiative. Once an initiative is complete, I would like to Archive it so it is hidden but still can be referenced for metrics.

    Please please please introduce this before my Planner turns into it's own living and breathing entity.

    Sincerely,
    Brandon Haley

    I want to archive a bucket so that I can drag completed tasks to a “June 19 Release” bucket then archive the bucket and have the tasks disappear from the stats. Otherwise the number of completed tasks grows and grows. I would have to create a new plan for every release now or delete tasks once the change is released

    We use buckets to track individual projects. When a project is completed we want to archive the bucket so we can troubleshoot the process, learn how to improve it, etc. What we don't want is to have to scroll through dozens of inactive buckets, which apparently is the only alternative to deleting them. PLEASE add this functionality. Otherwise in 2 years we will have to scroll past literally hundreds of buckets to find the active ones, a tremendous waste of time. Thank you!

    We need this to effectively use Planner for assigning tasks and grouping them to the project site (changes weekly)
