Global View + Resource Managment
There should be the ability for Admin to see all tasks asigned to a person across all projects. This could essentially be a really powerful resource managment and forcasting tool.
You could add the ability for PM or admins to allocate resources for a task or project (4h/day on this task for the next week, or 3 hours a day on this project for the next 3 months). Then managment could use this to see who is over booked and who is light and realocate resources.
I am introducing a customer to Teams and Planner to organize tasks around multiple projects. Most of these are simple ToDOs, thus, in principle Planner would suffice. The challenge is that the owner needs a Global View of upcoming deadlines in all projects and of all tasks assigned to specific resources. Is this even in the roadmap?
This would be a huge help... My company is starting to use planner as part of teams and have found that each team may have plans but sometimes resources get shared across different teams and it would be very helpful to see all task assigned to an individual on a given day so we don't over utilize that person.
This is frequently requested by PMO, please consider seriously on the roadmap

As a manager being able to view a simple resource utilization would help me end the use of manual Excel files. MS Project is to much for a simple utilization planner, a simple (how many hours available to work in a time period versus how much work [in hrs or %] assigned).
This is a great idea and what I have been searching for!
