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
Pedro Reis commented
Filtering the tasks by person, turning "Charts" dynamic.

Without this feature the planner only a private task list, not tool for project management. I would like to see all boards all task in one view like "my tasks"
This is a really needed feature. I need to be able to sort to show all tasks (from all channels) for each person on my team. This will help a great deal with prioritization of tasks and workload.
Sachin Chivate commented
+1 for this feature as this will be really useful for the resource allocation and prioritisation process.
Anthony Van Eman commented
I have an example. We work in a matrix environment, team members can work multiple projects, engineers that report directly to me can and do work for other managers on other projects. I need to be able to view all assigned tasks my engineers are working, as well as tasks that engineers that do not report to me directly have. This is to ensure that work across the organization is being evenly distributed.
I want to be able to view all tasks on all planner boards within a channel
Is unbelievable that in 2020 this feature is still not available. It must be implemented as soon as possible.
Jeff Michael commented
Agreed. As a manger at my organization, I would like to quickly search open planner items that I have assigned to various members of my organization, or to simply search planner via key terms. I find the lacking of that feature to be very frustrating.
It would we helpfull to see ALL plans of a Group/Team. As an owner you need to maybe check for already existing plans or maybe delete old / unused plans. There is no way to see all plans of a team
I am the owner of our company's action database and we have chosen to use Planner as the tool. I have a quarterly metric that I need to meet. In order to see if I'm meeting it I must export each board individually, combine into one Excel file and filter for late actions. Would be great if there was a way to pull data from all boards that I own at once.
Charlotte Jones commented
I use planner through Teams. Each of our channels has a different plan, detailing tasks required related to the channel. However, there is no way to reflect that in the general or Team channel, meaning that the schedule and charts functions are pointless as we can't see an overview of all the tasks across the team, only channel by channel. Therefore organising this way is effectively pointless.
Please implement a functionality where all changes in planners on daughter channels can be see in the parent planner of a team, to allow analytics and scheduling.

Being able to pull up all tasks for an individual for all planners they have tasks assigned.
If you do not have permissions to a particular planner than have it pull non detailed info just start date, due date, process status and priority status and tag with no permission planner, no permission bucket. This would be similar to a free/busy type concept like in outlook calendar.
This would help with planning purposes for team members that are cross functional and part of multiple teams assigned to multiple PM's

We have several projects in a program, with separate planner boards for each project where tasks are assigned to project team members. As the Program Manager, I am accountable for keeping the project teams on track. I need visibility of all tasks assigned to each team member in a single view to see the workload across the team, support team members with reprioritising tasks and maintaining accountability for due/overdue tasks. Too much time is lost in standups by going in and out of each separate planner board to see workload and progress status. There needs to be the ability to toggle the view to see all task assignments across the team.
Hello, on my side, I'm team leader and I would like to have a view of tasks for my team members for all planners in the same view.
Angela Morris commented
As an organizational leader, we have recurring team meetings and many concurrent projects in my team resource's portfolio. I need to have a view across the team for all work, not project by project so that I can balance resource load as well as ensure progress is being made on actions.
Planner won't work as an enterprise app without the ability to view all tasks by team member across multiple teams and channels. Microsoft Team...will you be closing this major gap?

We have anywhere from 10-30 simultaneous Plans. Not having a master view as the Lead Administrator to see what tasks I've assigned an individual for the week defeats half of the purpose for using a tracking tool like this (i.e. it's faster to manually jot assignments down on a scrap of paper rather than go into each plan to filter by an individual). I'd like to see a master admin task assignment view, or some filter that I can filter by individual assignment across all active plans. Please add this feature or we'll have to find another project mgmt tool to fit these needs!
We already have the ability to pull all task of a user in "My Tasks". Currently this is only available for that user alone - e.g. Adam viewing Adam's all tasks across plans. Enable this to all users - e.g. Adam viewing John's tasks across plans. For any concerns of privacy etc., pre-filter that view to show only the plans that include both the viewer and the viewee - e.g. Adam viewing "John's tasks in plans John and Adam share". Maybe there are better solutions, but please just implement this first. It's been three years that I've been frequenting this uservoice request. No action or no explanation on MS's part. Difficult to understand why.
I need to see what other team members have got In Progress and Upcoming to plan their work, but I also need my manager to be able to see my active tasks.
This is probably the single most significant drawback of moving to Planner from JIRA
As a team leader, I need an option to see all the tasks in the different "planners" that my team members are assigned to! It is amazing that this feature has not been implemented yet!
