        Every day I see suggestions and ideas coming, feedback Microsoft is almost non existent.
        I'm going to start using Project 2016 Online for my projects.

        This is a basic feature. Trying to sell this as our platform over trello, but feel it might fall short without it

        Need to have recurring tasks or really whats the point..? the alternative is to say that the tasks don't recur which is unrealistic.

        I absolutely love this idea. My employees are constantly updating due dates and this fixes that.

        To make this app truly useful, would be key to allow recurring tasks and tasks sets that repeat across multiple projects.

        Yes is a basic feature that I will need - as there are many tasks are repeatable in my organization. However, please do not stop at this feature alone. there should be a customizable / editable table that you can associate each of the resource names with tasks that roll-up into the buckets, task categories, resource types and resource hours for each task - and an export feature to html page, ms excel, ms project.

        Yes Please, or the ability to copy a plan and or bucket! We have month-end, year-end, quarterly lists of tasks that would be perfect for Planner, but the hassle of recreating the plan makes adoption unlikely!

        wow, can't believe this was not one of the first features to include....won't be able to utilize planner until tasks can be recurring

        I have recurring tasks on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis. This would be a great option to have
