Set default views
Can we have the ability to setup default views? Would be nice to have the team to access the plan and go to a predefined view that is easier to consume. I have a project with multiple members and its hard to track each ones actions for them when the access the tools and it goes straight to board view. Can we have the ability to have them go to the charts view with predefined filters? That would help make it visual as chart is a dynamic dashboard that makes it easier to track each peoples tasks.

This is one of about a hundred (Ok, only 26) requests for the same feature. Could we group them all together to give a better idea of how many votes this feature really has? I count a total of 390 votes for this. Some of the topics are asking to switch the default to what they use most, but they'd probably agree that the ability to set the default, or for Planner to remember their view from last time would work just as well.
Here are all the links with their current vote totals:

2,5 years later and nothing have happened? Just discovered this issue and hoped to find the solution here. Please add this feature.
Agree, this is a major need, especially when pulling Planner into Teams!
+1 for this. Started using planner today with my team, first ting I bumped in to was this issue... :(
This is a must neeeeeded feature! Planner has the ability replace Jira, but without this customization with views, it will never stand a chance.
Jani Anderson commented
Must have. I want. I need.
John R commented
dear lord please make this happen!
Lewis C commented
Number one bugbear with planner!
When I load my board I want it to load directly to "Group by Due Date" but I have to select this each time I load it.
Agreed, just started using and nothing more annoying than opening to a view that is not effective and it is inefficient to always reset it
Ana Howes commented
Agree with this comment!
John Parker commented
I agree. The lack of this option is makes it hard to get resistant teams to adopt this.
Tom Castiglia commented
The ability to set the default view must include the Planner web part as well. For example, instead of Group By Bucket, we'd like to Group by Progress or Due Date.
I agree. We need this functionality!
Totally Agree to previous comments - being able to adjust the default view would be a big improvement!
Allowing to set a default view would ensure each planner can be used in the most suitable way for a team. E.g. on Teams, one of our channel is deadline oriented, would would work better in schedule view, and another is task oriented so would work better in bucket view.
Eric Eaton commented
Here, here. I love Planner, but this is an irritation every single time i go into the tool. I have to go pick my preferred layout. The tool really needs a way to set the default.
Peter Geier commented
I would like to always default to group by due date instead of progress in My Tasks. But I also would like to sort e.g. by priority (e.g. colors). Otherwise, having 100 tasks is not really usable.
i would like to see default view by Progress or any other option rather than always being presented with the group by Buckets
Yes please add set default view feature!!
