Add Recycle for deleted tasks in Plan
Currently there is no possibility to restore deleted tasks and no option to restrict deletion. Assigned person can delete task and say after that haven't seen it.
In other case, deletion can be done by reason. Nevertheless, ability to restore is important.
Both situations can be handled by old good Recycle for deleted tasks, placed under Plan options. With ability to restore task with all important info: attaches, comments, check list etc. Restore of bucket and labels is nice to have.
Sadly MS don’t care.
And ist’s not possible to combine them :(
This will help in switching over to Planner. Currently only tool used outside office 365 is trello/proofhub

What is their POV?
... still nothing...
I was curious to see whether MS Project would prevent the deletion of tasks, so I just signed up my organisation to the MS Project web-only trial. it seems to be just a rather puzzling 'sidegrade' of Planner, with some of the same functionality, but not all of it. It has a couple of views that Planner doesn't, but other than that, it's very similar.
Tellingly, it also does NOT allow you to prevent the deletion of tasks, and there is no recycle bin for them either.
I have a feeling that this is all to do with how permissions work in AD and SharePoint. In SharePoint, you can't have varying permissions within the same library, and I kind of sense something similar is going on here. It's very frustrating and disappointing, as we were about to roll out a new process with Planner at the centre of it.
Now we're looking at scrapping it altogether because of this glaring lack of functionality. Hard to believe folks have been asking for this for over four years now.
We lost a bucket don't know how, assuming someone inadvertently deleted it and there was hours of work in there that now has to be recreated. Serious flaw with teams.
I discovered right NOW that ther is not a recycle bin for plans! CRAZY!!!!
I have to inform all my users immediatly! Please resolve ASAP this BUG!
Olá Microsoft, veja essa sugestão urgentemente! A ferramenta é boa, gostaríamos de implementá-la em nossas atividades, mas é inútil se for fácil excluir e não pudermos recuperar tarefas excluídas acidentalmente.
I really want to embrace Teams/Planner but you are making it really difficult.
A team member just accidentally deleted three buckets with multiple tasks in after copying to a new channel and it’s gone forever. Not even a warning...
Please add recycle, undo and user permissions to planner ASAP
I was searching under the development categories in this forum hoping to find anything that addresses the flaw of a task being deleted by any member, never being able to recover it, and not being able to find out who did it.
It's nowhere in your pipeline MS! not under the categories of planned. scheduled, or even thinking about it!
I still can't believe the lack of interest from MS to address this major and critical flaw!
Please tell us if you are ever planning on addressing this issue or save us time and have us look for another tool, as the tool is useless if this issue is not fixed.
Either apply a restriction, recycle bin, or a backup option.
Some form of accountability is required when deleting a task.
I'm relying on Planner to keep track of projects and some tasks are mysteriously disappearing with no-one taking responsibility. If these are truly deleted by error I would need to be able to retrieve them and inform the user(s) to be more careful with what and where they are clicking.
(and if it turns out that a certain user has taken it upon themselves to deliberately remove tasks to change the flow of a project then it is even more important that they can be identified.)
This just happened to my team today. Please fix MS Planner, so data cannot be deleted or at least make it so it can be easily recovered, if need be.
(Recap of my internal post earlier) Microsoft Teams, Please Help! Need everyone's input/suggestions/expertise to see if there is a way to bring back lost/accidentally deleted data within MS Planner (which resides inside MS Teams for us). Our Client team uses MS Planner to organize and track client weekly sprint tasks between our internal Functional and Technical team members. We have columns set up for "To do (Functional task items)", another for "In progress (Func), another for "To do (Technical task items)", and another for "In progress (Tech)" with various assigned tasks. Unfortunately, during a clean-up effort, those 4 (out of the 6) task columns and all associated tasks were deleted (and no, not be me ). Attempting to help a colleague/friend. There was a lot of tracking data (not to mention time and effort put in) that will be hard to try and replicate. Does anyone know if data can be recovered from MS Planner, and if so, how?
We need this ASAP, Microsoft Planner has so many weaknesses I hope MS does something about
we aboslutely need it. Thank you.

We need this function asap! I have tried everything. Someone wrote that Planner is stored on Exchange Online but I don't find any links to restore.
Has someone tried to delete the group and then restore to see what happends with the planner?
Azure has a function called Get-AzureADMSDeletedGroup (restore command Restore-AzureADMSDeletedDirectoryObject )
This recovers a complete group but there is no way to differ between what you want to recover or not.
4 years later... nothing...
Hello 👋🏾 MS are you there ?
Need ASAP, or until inactivate the delete function on the task......
With Avepoint ist’s possible to backup planner.
A shame that MS can’t do this :((
100% full ak @algas
And no response from MS....
