Include Task Priority
Hello All! The priority feature is complete! Priority is rolled out to production across the Web and Teams. It’s also available in the mobile app an in the beta endpoint for the MS graph API. We’ve also updated the charts view to include a priority chart .
Please give it a try and let us know what you think! If there’s something you’d like us to improve upon, please find and vote on that suggestion or create a new one so we can prioritize accordingly.

It is mandatory when you want to organize your activities. Maybe anterioty tasks option should be added to this priority option
How do you priorities multiple tasks all on the same day??? YOU NEED PRIORITIES
It's almost as if Microsoft looked at the best of the best similar tools on the market and chose the 6 most basic features and built a whole product around it. Not sure how they expect anyone to use this tool seriously when its such a limited, basic Fischer-price level tool.
I can't even change the tags/label colours and names to fill this glaring gap.

Would be a very useful feature for our business
This is much needed here as well.
Buckets and tags are already in use: we use buckets for categorizing and tags for indicating cross-functional topics with other departments.
Prioritizing is not possible at this point.
I fully agree, a priority feature would help a lot. As the options for categorizing are few, one cannot 'afford' to use the labels for priotizing ...
I've seeing and even shared an idea about this. Right now when we go in the Graphs section if we change the "Group by" to go by labels (I'm using the labels to establish my P1, P2, P3s etc) the Bucket graph is not updating itself to display how many of each labels.
Maybe we need a new graph for labels only? If there is a better idea to do this we could really use this to help us with the priorities quantities we have.
Please add PRIORITY or possibility to create more LABELS
That's the problem, if you use the buckets for priority, you lose the possibility to create categories organize your plan.
Whilst a bucket may show 15 tasks prioritised top to bottom the individual responsible for delivering that task may have multiple tasks across multiple boards.
So I recommend that the bucket on a board is prioritised top to bottom but a separate field only editable by the task owner allows the owner to prioritise thier own list of tasks - moving a task in the personal my task section
Must have! Tasks without priorities is not really effective planning...

Use labels or buckets for this people :) create your own priority labels instead like my example below
Purple - Ready for testing
Red - Prio 1 - High
Orange - Prio 2 - Medium
Green - Prio 3 - Low / when there is time
Dark Green - On hold / Not now
Turquoise - In need of further info / analysis
This functionality is fundamental. We have over 100 cards we are tracking and it is very hard to search for and visually see the priority items.
I highly recommend that this feature is added... I think it would be extremely helpful if you could choose a number between 1 and 5+ (1 being the highest priority). You would enter the priority number when you are creating the task. If this was a feature, you would not have to manually sort to see the top priority tasks, and you would be able to view all the #1 priorities within each bucket by filtering by priority. This feature would be extremely valuable for my team

Not needed. Just sort your prio's from top to bottom and start working on the most important stuff (on top) first. It's how it's done today. But what annoys me is that when you group by label, the task are ordered alphabetically... That's a fix we really need!
Erik Oster commented
... and the ability to group the plan by priorities.
Disliking an idea? Thats just idiotic; you can always set tasks using a number or some other order if you can specifiy custom field and the define it as Task Priority for example.
