Make public plans discoverable
Currently, there's no way for end-users to obtain an overview of all public plans, as -contrary to what the name implies- the "All Plans" section is in fact the "All MY Plans" section.
If you know the name, you can find the related Group, but there's no way to go from the Group to the Plan.

We have many plans. If a ticket is accidentally moved to another plan, it's lost forever! Searching for the ticket title does not locate it.

This seems like an obvious thing. We have started to use Planner for some key processes, and the inability to find plans as data in the system builds out over time is a real problem.
I would like to search in public plans in MS Planner, both for names and resources.
Zenovia Palmer commented
I would love it if you could add a search function in Microsoft Planner
please do add search functionality to planner
What's the use of a "Public" Plan if you can't find it?!
Absolutely shocked that a 'Search' function is not there in Planner!?
It has been said before: it is a make or Break function, I mean come on! :D
Please add a search function in planner
Jim Ritchie commented
Not being able to search really limits the benefit of having Planner at all. In managing larger groups or projects, it's impossible to remember all of the items that may have been entered into planner previously. Search affords an opportunity to find it quickly, or determine that it was not already entered. For me, and not to sound dramatic, this is a make or break feature.
Please add a Search for a card function in planner. (Trello) has a very good one ;-)
Please add a search function in Planner. When the plan has many tasks, time is wasted trying to manually find things. This makes Planner almost unusable.
add a search window please. I have many plans and loose time scrolling

We have group plans, is there a way for me to search when I am a member of the group?
Agree there does not seem to be a distinction between public and private. We may have a handful of people directly involved in the project with tasks and they are members but there are others in the org that should be able to see the plan if it's public. What's the point of having public if you have to add people as a member to see the plan isn't that the definition of private?
Charlie Stobert commented
Making a plan "Public" seemed to do nothing. Even when non-member colleagues know the plan name they cannot see it.

I have a variation of this request regarding public view-only access within the organization for non members. Please vote here: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/33806461-public-view-only-access-within-organisation-for-no

(1) Make public plans discoverable
I need this feature pronto. We are rolling it out to our team, and I had an intern create some sandbox plans - that I need others to see.
(2) Transfer ownership of plans
Also - I can't easily figure out how to give ownership of a plan to another member in order to make these private plans to public.
(3) Copy/ Duplicate plans
Is there a way to copy plans for other people to use?
(4) Copy Checklists into a Palette (or Tasks) for reuse
Is there a way to copy a checklist that you use for other (or copy a Task)?
Marc Barrow commented
Totally agree. Public plans need to be highly visible on the Hub. This is a show stopper!!
Matt Mendenhall commented
Is there any way at all to get to a public plan created by an Office 365 group? I marked a plan as public but can't see how people find it "publicly".
Richard Wells commented
This is our biggest issue with the product so far too.
If a plan is marked 'public' then I feel like it should be discoverable on the hub, and without joining the plan you should be able to view the internal tasks and progress.
