Assign checklist item to specific individuals
This would be great to have when it's a bigger task that has several folks working on specific elements of it.
I agree checklist tasks need to be full Sub-Tasks with ability to assign to members and to set a due date & due time (due date as a minimum)
This would be of very high value
Jörg Brüggemann commented
Yes, PLEASE. There is still the question on when to work in a conversation and when collaborate in a task. But at least it would be much easier, to use the one single for more complex tasks
Please, please, please make it possible to assign check list items to specific individuals and set individual deadlines 🙏🏻
Just a bump, this feature would be value adding. Especially with a deadline.

Please include the ability to -
. add subtasks,
. to breakout checklist items into subtasks,
. to be able to elevate substasks to tasks,
. add dates to checklist items.

A big nod for the need to have subtasks that are assignable to individuals with due dates that roll up in to their plan and show the connection between the Plan -> Bucket -> Task for easy sorting and reporting.

Please include dates and assignments to checklist items.
Also increase the number of allowable checklist items
This tool will not truly work for us - coordinating activity across multiple departments and teams with multiples deadlines - unless we can add subtasks to tasks, assign them to individuals and add due dates.
This requirement goes a long way in adoption across our org and partners (guests on the plan)
Also using a third-party tool instead of planner, due to the lack in this functionality.
With Trello you can assign a responsible to a checklist item AND give checklist items deadlines!!
How do we get this moved up in priority? This is really one of the only reasons I don't use Microsoft Planner and use a third-party tool.
Using Asana today, can´t switch to Planner without this feature.
Assigning sub-tasks to individuals is a crucial requirements for us.
This is a major barrier to MS Planner being utilised in our organisation and it is likely we will need to look to another solution to do this.
Any indiciation if this will be developed and what timeline that might be?

As many have stated previously, assigning checklist items (or sub-tasks) would be extremely beneficial for teams. Sometimes a project has several large tasks that require multiple people to complete and being able to assign the individual pieces of work to individuals allows us to better track our work.
This would be extremely useful for our company..please include this feature!
This now makes Planner the right solution for those who can't, shouldn't and won't use/buy MS Project
This is critical functionality. One task can be performed by several people and their responses shall be tracked individually.
Assigning sub-tasks to individuals and dependent tasks is a crucial requirements for us!
