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
I strongly agree the idea of implementing such a solution. It will improve task management for teams.
marcelo sauaf commented
This hasn't been implemented yet by the MS app "Tasks by Planner and To Do"? Just add it in your Teams UI... why people still asks for this and mods hasn't flagged as "complete", is still "tell us more?
Julie Jackson commented
All of this information ALREADY exists in Microsoft Planner, it just needs to be configured to let users see the information displayed in this format. PLEASE add this functionality, it will make MS Planner so much more useful.

As others have stated, from a manager's perspective being able to see task allocation across all projects for individual employees helps managers to determine which resources are most heavily (or least heavily) burdened.

Please implement this feature. The use case is obvious. We want to see which tasks we have assigned to a given user (within a plan, and across all plans).
Guys, finally found a way to see all tasks assigned to a single user in a team. It is a third party app that does this and a lot more. I am not affiliated with this company. Just wanted to help you guys out with something that has been driving me crazy.
This is what would make Teams hugely useful for assessing workload of individuals but also assessign ways of working styles and assessing overall activity within an organisation.
Adrian Antonello commented
I agree. Definitely would be of value for organisations utilising matrix management models.
Michael Whitman commented
I agree. This would be useful in so many settings, but particularly in a matrix organization where a functional manager would want to see all of the tasking for his/her employees across projects. It would also be useful for smaller teams, where the owner may want an overall view of the company's progress without opening up each individual team.
I am an EA sitting in most of the company's meetings, taking notes and adding tasks to people's boards. Very often we want to look at one's action list across the boards, but this impossible if I am the one sharing the screen in the meeting and it would take too much time for individuals to log in and out. We use Planner as a tool for managing people's actions lists, less in project management. For us ideally, it would be assigned permission to have access to see everyone's all tasks(actions).
Justine Hamilton commented
We have staff working on multiple projects and need to know not just within in ONE plan who is doing what but across all plans/projects. The projects are simply too complex to put into just one plan - since we can't assign checklist items to different people and have to have separate tasks for everything assigned. We need to know who is working on what across multiple plans to better allocate and assign new tasks. If we could just use Project, we could roll up those tasks into one master board, but since that service is no longer included in our enterprise license and we can't afford to pay a monthly subscription for every person on our team to use it, we need this feature.
This feature should be a must! We need to be able to see all tasks others are assigned to, in order to judge on whom we can assign additional tasks to without over allocating any given individual. Right now managers have no other way in Teams/Planner to get a global view of their team members.

Please add this feature! It would be nice to see all tasks across your organization, and be able to Group by "Assigned to"!
Harry K commented
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.
Mike Howard commented
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.
Dan at HCS commented
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...
Gustavo Loureiro commented
I would add an option where the red arrow points to, in the attached image, to show Team Tasks
