View All Tasks Assigned To a Single Person
Currently tasks can be viewed by Assigned To only within a particular Project. It would be helpful to search globally in Planner by Assigned To rather than having to review assignments Plan by Plan. This change would make evaluation of workloads much easier.
Thanks for sharing your feedback.
We would like to hear more about how you would utilize this view. If you have a particular scenario or set of teammates for which you’d like to view tasks for, please share below!
The Planner Team

Please add this feature! It would be nice to see all tasks across your organization, and be able to Group by "Assigned to"!

We need the ability to see all tasks assigned to one individual across various teams and platforms.
This feature would give much more effective oversight.
Please implement this feature - it is a no brainer, just another way of sorting/filtering existing information!!!
Please implement this feature.

Please add this feature! As the manager of several employees across 80+ teams/plans, going one by one through each Team/Plan is tedious verging on unworkable. It’s imperative for any organization with more than a handful of Teams. Heck, any supervisor would want to have oversight over employees, their tasks load, and progress.

Instead of having to click "Plan by Plan" or Team by Team, it would be nice to see all tasks across your organization, and be able to Group by "Assigned to" (among other items)
I am sure this was explained in the other 788 comments, but that seems to cover it.
André Decoupigny commented
Can you please add this!! As the others already said, it would be great to see the workload of each employee. Thank you...

I would add an option where the red arrow points to, in the attached image, to show Team Tasks

Can you please add this feature?
This is very important feature for all managers. The best way to use this in my case is in the Teams left bar button (Tasks by Planner and To Do". Right now it has only "My tasks", it could have the option to create views or lists for other users or filter something maybe?
I currently manage teams with each individual in my team managing up to 8 projects at a time.
I need to see quickly, how many tasks they have across all projects. Each with their own planner. Currently there's no way to do this. And to have to go into each project planner per person in my team, this makes it a very combersome task for a manager.
We'll need to use a different tool than Planner to manage Workloads, if this functionality is not added. It would be amazing to be able to see schedules filtering per: Team, Channels, People, Group of People.
Right now, the managers need to be assigned to all the tasks in order to manage workloads of people in their team.
PLEASE add this as a feature. This seems like a simple ask to change the view from the Tasks dashboard to others besides yourself.
I am in a team with one manager overseeing two senior (incl. me) and two junior staff. The manager assigns tasks to all of us, but the senior staff can also assign tasks to either of the junior staff. For the manager and the two senior staff it would be incredibly helpful to see the workload of the two junior staff before choosing who to assign work to, especially since we are all working remotely due to COVID. If we could see each person's complete list of tasks this would help us make sure that work is distributed more evenly.

This functionality would improve how we organise our workload. Being able to see all tasks for each employee over all plans would be much more efficient during out weekly team meeting.
Can you please give and ETA on when this will be up and running?
David Remillard commented
It would be nice to see all tasks, for each employee, across all plans, rather than having to visit each plan.
It would also be nice to get an update since this horse seems dead in the water. I mean, over 5000 votes and almost 800 comments and NOTHING?
****! Come on, Microsoft!
Hi There, can you give us an update about this real Important function?

I would like to add to this. I manage multiple projects with different matrixed teams underneath. Each week, I need to report out what are the responsibilities for the employees for the following week. In order to do this in planner, I either need to create one big board (but that's too messy with how large our programs are) or I have to cross check 3-5 different boards each week and consolidate the information for each person.
I also need each individual to be able to see their tasks by Sub Plan and by Department so I don't hold the keys to that.
What would be ideal is:
Sub Project 1
Sub Project 2
Sub Project 3 etc
Be able to assign specific people to each subproject with specific deliverables.
Be able to pull a report by person for all Training Team Sub Projects within a specified date range.
And be able to pull a report by person for specific Sub Projects only.
This would be super helpful because then instead of a crazy manually updated spreadsheet I have to cross check, I could pull each week or each month the priorities for each person for my 1:1 meetings with my matrixed employees.

It is essential for a coordination role, to see each person work load. That way he/she can reassign tasks and change duedates. Today we do this in one on one sessions that are very time consuming
This would be very useful.
For me as dept manager it would be nice if we could see all tasks for all individuals in my department.
No I have to check multiple plans and channels.
I think the same way I can see ALL MY TASKS, it would be nice o be able to see ALL "THIS PERSONS" TASKS.
