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
This would be so useful. I have morning briefings with some of admin staff to talk through their tasks for that day. I have to ask them to read aloud from their my tasks plan just so we can clarify any items and also identify within the daily tasks which are the most important. It would be so useful if I could just see this screen especially before the meeting just to review what's been asked, if it's reasonable within one day and if the light of this particular these tasks are definitely the priority or I want to choose to reset the due date. This would make it so much easier for me to support others in the team

This functionality would be useful if a team member is out for the day or a period of time, and I need to view their Planner tasks across multiple Plans to take action or reassign easily.

I manage a small team. I need to be able to see all tasks assigned to my analyst for all teams/channels that they belong to. This is the only way I can see a complete list of all tasks my analysts are working on.
A project manager that manages several projects and plans needs a consolidated view of all projects within a "super plan" to estimate per example the workload or interdependances
We have plans per customer assigned to different team members. We would need a view of each team member planned tasks.
This view would be very helpful for managing and prioritizing the workload for members of my team.
HI, these are some related ideas, a scenario could be daily standup,acountability sessions, searching a task or plan.
We have channels assigned to 170 organisations (clients) and each has about 6 members of staff assigned across the 170 task/planners. We need visibility of outstanding tasks at a top level not go into 170 clients to view what is outstanding.
I absolutely agree with the person who has raised this issue. We need to have a filter system where we ( as organization level team leader) can check work load and task completion report for each individual person who has been assigned task. This will enable us to understand work load plus rating of task completion patterns. Similar to the chart report for a particular task, I would like to see chart report for an individual person as well.
Working in a small biotech company. We work on 3 projects in the lab, and each project is a channel. We have 5 lab members, each performs tasks on every project. I need to see a consolidated view of all 3 channels in order to see how much work a particular lab member has for the week.
Working within a law office
Multiple partner level attorneys share multiple staff (associate attorney / paralegal / assistant)
While each attorney can follow his/her Planner / tasks / see workload they've assigned within their channel it is important to see an overall firm-wide task list across multiple channels
This feature is needed. If there was function for managers/supervisors/leadership to filter by member and see all they are working on across all plans that would truly make it a Team feature.
Using Planner to manage a team is not possible without this feature. Its a shame since we wanted to stay in the microsoft ecosystem.
We need supervisors to be able to see and manage all of an employees assignments at once.
In our development team i have made different channels. Each channel represents a machine. Each channel has a seperate planner with todos for the single machine. To keep the overview of all these todos it es necessary to have a view of all todos of all channels of one team.
As an operations team we would like to review, in a consolidated view, the task and work being completed on all of the projects that we are working on. We have Teams created for each "project" and would like to roll that up to look at a higher level view across the team. Currently you can only look at each individual project OR all task assigned to yourself.

This seems quite obvious and necessary. It is for supervisors to see what everyone is working on and how busy (or not) they are at any given time.
Say you're the Art Director in a Design Studio. You have 6 Graphic Designers under you.
These designers have different tasks from different projects (hence different Planners).
The Art Director now cannot have a global view, where they can see how busy each Designer is overall (i.e. all their tasks, across all their plans).
it's simple, "Assigned to Me" view should have a user selection for "Assigned to X" to view the same for another person. "Assigned to" appears to only be Planner tasks. Without this, management of individuals is impossible. No way to see work load.
Has anyone else figured out a work around to view workload by person?
In order to manage work and to understand if a team can take on more work, we need to see a summary of all work within a channel or across channels - be able to see the description and calendarize 0r gannt chart view. Work at a glance is important for teams to manage and coordinate work.

In the Planner Hub just allow charts to be displayed for all Plans on the first screen. This would give us a perfect overview and it would be key to do a proper Recourse planning.
