Voting on task importance
We use planner to track bug fixes and it would be nice if users could up vote a card to show us it is a more important bug fix. Kind of like the voting we use in this forum :)

This would just be amazing to get this to facilitate task prioritization
voting functionality please !!
Having the same will benefit our team's workflow enormously. There are multiple processes in our team that use voting and consolidating these on our group tasks would make a big difference for us
Would like it to be a dot voting feature where I can give everyone a certain number of votes and they can distribute however they like.

Planner is meant for team tasks. Teams don't always agree on what needs to be priority so voting would help tremendously. I usually create an "Incoming" bucket and new ideas get put in there to incubate. Figuring out which one should be cooked faster would be a lot easier by letting people vote.
As a temporary workaround, I guess you could allow people to assign themselves to the task, therefore looking at the number of people assigned to a task as their vote, and once it gets "accepted", move it over into the right bucket to work on and remove the people that don't necessarily need to work on it. I haven't tried this but may in the future.

This functionality also keeps us from adopting Planner.
Other requests for the same functionality:
This is a reason why we often use other boards instead of Planner. Voting and other functions to score different activities is an important feature for us.

We really need this capability to keep users within the Teams EcoSphere . Unfortunately, some groups have begun using IdeaBoardz or Trello, as voting is our main workflow tool to kick off a sprint
Felix Tsai commented
Yup. Using trello as well because of this. The board is a great way to put ideas and then vote. Also then allowing the ability to sort a field by votes.
Josiah Wood commented
We are currently using Trello because it has this feature. I would like to be able to migrate to Planner.
This would be great to have. My team keeps pushing Trello and the major reason is that Trello supports voting and planner doesn't. I would rather have everything in Office 365, but without voting trello is just a better solution unfortunately.
Want to vote this requirement.
Hi - any updates on this idea? It would be very useful for our team to be able to vote on a card. We use it as a backlog for retros and need a way to vote which one is most important for the team...
A good point to use Ms Planner to reproduce the "Power BI Ideas" and "Planner Ideas" feedback forums
Completely agree - huge - would allow us to use this as our organisations 'ideas' box
yeah, we use this for the same thing.
