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.
Terrible design flaw. Planner is a knockoff on Trello. Trello archives deleted plans and cards so they can be restored if need be. We should have continued using Trello,
we need that to increase user adoption, this is a major issue in today usage
I can only agree to the comments before. I copied a Planner tab and when deleting buckets in one tab they got deleted in both tabs. This is so illogical!!! Why should I copy a tab after all if that's the case? My work of weeks is now lost because of this b***t
Ein Papierkorb ist ein MUSS!!!! Jegliche gelöschten Dateien oder Aufgaben o.ä. muss dem Admin oder dem Besitzer in einer Liste angezeigt werden...
Ridiculous. Task copied from DIFFERENT Plan was deleted from BOTH the new Plan to which Task was copied, AND original Plan from where Task came from. There *must* be an undo or restore or recycle bin in Planner.

When user deletes assigned task, it is deleting in both sender Id and user Id

Pl add an option in planner to restrict permission to the user to delete assigned task
The lack of this feature has now caused us a major problem for one of our teams. Can we please have this implemented as soon as possible?
Microsoft wrote to me on June 8:
“I would like to mention that this is a known issue for the Planner product group team and they are working on this concern.
But unfortunately as of now we do not have these feature in the Microsoft planner. However, you may always provide your valuable feedback for this feature in the forum below which is directly monitored by our Product Group Team and this may be available in the near future but currently we can not commit any ETA for that”
Having exhausted all my options and pitching the idea to my clients that Planner is the best way forward. I was shocked to find it's limitation.
1. Sprawling of Groups and unable to create a template plan using existing groups.
2. No Recovery of Deleted Plans, Buckets and Tasks.
After doing some research, I found this company in India Apps4Pro Planner Manager which is a google extension. You pay a yearly or monthly charge for the subscription but it has everything one needs to make planner better.
When I created an account, I found these are the third party developers Microsoft uses to fix their bugs. I have also audited their software and there are no password or authentications stored. Give it a visit and make your mind.
Only writing this review as I was really impressed with the software.
THIS IS REPORTED IN SEP 2016 AND TO DATE THERE IS NO UDPATE.
IS SOMEONE ACTUALLY LOOKING INTO THIS?
When is this being implemented. It has now been years. Many businesses would most likely switch to using Microsoft 365 if simple features like this would be implemented to make the tools and software work better.
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
Combining all related ideas below could add more votes to this.
There are multiple related ideas which got 3500+ additional votes
Is ms even reading this?
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.
