How can we improve Planner?

Due date notification

If a task is late (the due date has passed), please make sure to send a notification to both the owner and anyone related to the task (coworkers, team leader,...).

        my users are asking for reminder notifications for the set due date. also if group by due date is removed, please note that it was an important feature and i request to add it back.

        The difference between an upcoming Task with impending Date Due vs. a TASK that is Late.
        We need a way to view all tasks with upcoming Due Dates, BEFORE they become Late.

        Prior to the O365:Planner update 07/25/17
        In the CHART view, the option to GROUP by (DUE DATE). This was very helpful as it displayed all tasks in descending order based on date the task is due. Please bring this function back.

        This would be a great feature. I would like to have the ability to customize notifications for tasks. Some tasks I would want a notification everyday building up to the due date, others I might just need one on day of the due date.

        Mandatory - at least for what is due today and on every day that the task is overview. Additional notifications could be selected by user.

        To suggestions to improve Planner:

        1. Task Due Date notifications (either through out look or some other manner)
        2. Some type of search function. If you have a lot of task in a plan it becomes difficult to find them or to see if one might be duplicated.

        And did you really just take out sorting by Due Date? If so, why would you do that?

        Yes. It would be nice to use Planner to put in expiration of various software maintenance and have a reminder prior to the expiration so I can get the process started with the vendor

        With all the projects my team is working on, this feature is urgently needed to keep everyone on track.

        I'm in agreement that this is something I've been looking for a workaround on for a while. Once tasks start adding up, the only way I know if tasks are close to due or overdue is if I scroll through them all which isn't possible with dozens of tasks. Looking forward to seeing this rolled out.

        E-mail are send into private group mail box. My team would prefer to have this notification into their own inbox. It would be more convenient for us

      • BecBec commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please add due date notifications with options about how much notification you would like e.g. 1 day, 3 days, 1 week. This is the only way I can truly rely on this program, otherwise I have to duplicate it in my calendar anyway.

        Notifications for upcoming due dates and overdue tasks would be better than just overdue ones because you could prevent the task from becoming overdue.

      • David NicholsDavid Nichols commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        YES! I set Due Dates on some of my apps... and found that I missed dates because I got no notification about it.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Also if the due date is approaching f. e. in one week / 3 days, you would get a notification or alert.

        To add to this - The ability to turn on reminder notifications x # of days prior to due date.
