Tasks only showing due date - insert start date as well.
When looking at the tasks on the Board page within a plan, Planner only currently shows the due date. If a plan consists of multiple buckets and multiple tasks, some will have different start dates but the same due date; others will not be able to start until another task is completed. This currently lacks clarity on the Board page...showing the start date, whether already past or in the future, would enhance the ability of all to see the proposed timeline, for project leads to sort tasks in order of planned completion, and for team members to prioritise ongoing tasks over those set to start in the future.
I might be missing the point, but I thought that MS Planner was supposed to fill the gap between Tasks and MS Project... This level of complexity is what Project does. Please don't overcomplicate Planner by turning it into a duplicate of Project.
Please add this
please add this!
Im hoping to integrate planner tasks with sharepoint events via FLOW but they dont have a start date by default so it fails/needs a big workaround
Needed for sure.
A related other request :
in the "planning view', would it be possible to display some other fields (on top of the task title), like for instance the affected team membre(s).
Yes! This is needed. We also need to be able to filter out tasks with a future Start Date.
Please add this feature!
I fully agree with Clarisse.
Start dates are important and should be managed as well.
I believe this would be an important enhancement. It is important for development team members to clearly understand both the start and end date.
With Lean Development, we recommend to pay attention on starting dates as much as end dates.
It will be very useful for all engineering team to have this information since the framework is going to be deployed in all R&D centers.
Agree with this. Tasks with both a start date and a due date should display both of these. This should be an extremely quick/simple fix as it's just a matter of displaying data that is already associated with the task.

I had a similar request from one of our Business Units today

For planning purposes, I am more interested in knowing when to do the task (start date) than when it should have been done (due date). In Outlook as well as in Project or similar applications you can already assign a start date.
