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.
Please add function!!

Until I can set the default view to group by progress, I can't confidently introduce this otherwise useful tool to ca. 500 colleagues for fear of it being rejected outright.

Would be very helpful. Please add this!!!
Please add function !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This would be extremely helpful. If you could define default filters and views on the planner in certain channels this would make it more accessible. By viewing your "master" planner through the relevant channel with the relevant filter default, you could immediately see the view you are looking for.

I just want to be able to set the default view to group by progress.
Elaine Larsh commented
Who wouldn't want the default view to be by progress??!?!? Who designed this? Please add this feature...

This is the one blocker for one pf our user groups to adopting planner. Too many clicks to get to the views they need.
The bucket view is bulky and can rarely be displayed without the need to scroll.
For smth like the teams-tab it would be very nice to switch default view to diagramms or time-centered planning as well es sth. like "show next tasks for currently logged in user..."

+1. This also applies for the Planner Web Part in Sharepoint. There is no option there to set default "group by".
Showing buckets in a narrow column on Sharepoint makes no sense. I should be able to make users see tasks by due date or e.g. "This week" when they start their day by opening Sharepoint each day.

Must have !
we need this. Not all the time we need to see based on bucket.. Sometimes doing it based on who it is assigned to is very helpful

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.
