Robust Spell Checker
yet another MS product that they've released that has major accessibility/usage issues for people with special/specific needs. T
Please add a spell check or incorrect word highlight on planner, both in teams and stand alone planner
Is this actually a fact - that there is no spell checker in planner cards? If so I will be moving the team away from them. This is basic functionality these days.
Come on, the more I use Planner, the more deficiencies. No spell check, yeah that's a great idea Microsoft!
Hey, while you're at it, why don't you disable "copy paste image" posting to threads too! O wait, you got that one covered.too.
We all rely on spell checkers, everyone gets something wrong and relies on these tools to ensure that the work continues to look professional, especially in senior management teams. It is off putting to know that you may be adding spelling errors. This must be a simple and straight forward tool to apply, even typing this message I have corrected two typo's as the page has informed me of them.
Please share your thoughts on this addition.

Why should I engage to products that are worst than a browser app experience ?
Spell Checker is a must for text based apps (Inside Teams)

We are using Planner and not being able to have spell check enabled can make for a unprofessional presentation, especially when senior people are viewing task cards.
It does surprise me that with all of the O365 applications, Planner didn't adopt the same standard for spell checking.

Agree the need for spell check, it is a draw back and makes some users want to move to other apps instead. Microsoft do you have a road map, is it being worked on or even considered?

Simple spell checker would suffice Just underline misspelled words as you type.
Another user with dyslexia - I am actively pushing for us to use another planner tool simply because people still equate good spelling with general ability. So implementing a tool that is going to impact my ability to communicate with other corporate users as well as reduce their trust in my opinions is not my preferred option!
Please either enable third party spell checkers to work in the browser or client version (i.e. Grammerly) or provide access to your own tools.

I would like to see spell check integrated into Microsoft Planner. For most people, this is a simple convenience; however, for me, it is a necessary accessibility feature. I have dyslexia and I rely on tools like spell check every day to make sure that I can communicate clearly and professionally with my team.
It is also worth noting that predictive text for laptop and hardware keyboards, which works in most places that you can type, does not work in Microsoft Planner.
Planner as a component of the Microsoft Teams app should have a spell-check function baked in. The fact that comments are permanent and cannot be edited after hitting 'send' means that typos live on for the life of the card. While Teams and Planner may be seen by Microsoft as casual applications, their increased use by the business community means that a more professional approach should be taken.

In regards to spell checker for the Microsoft Teams and Planner Application. I work for a medical institution where correct spelling is critical as we have many applications and terms that are similar. Confusion on this could result in miscommunication. Current user experience in other Microsoft applications will underline incorrect spelling issues. Users expect this while using any documentation project software. Please add this to enhance professional and accurate communications between team members while meeting customer expectations for usability.
Please add Spell Check!
This works in edge but i have been unable to get working in IE even though i have it enabled under devices typing on windows 10 so seems a browser issue not a fault of planner.
Have your browser do the spell checking, no reason to have every web app implement their own spell checking.
