Group By View (Default Views)
When inside of a Plan the default "group by" view is bucket. I'd like to be able to change the default view to "Progress" or have the ability to set a default to any of the view options.
Please add this feature asap!

fully agree, this would be helpful as ****!
I agree, I would like to set a default view of how things are grouped. I always use the "assigned to" rather than "bucket" method of grouping and having to change it everytime I go to planner can be a pain in the neck.

Related to this, I'd like to be able to set a default view when first starting up Planner on the website or in the mobile app.

We really need a merge feedback feature lol

I need this feature as well...either remembering previous context or allow me to set the default.
for most people the only useful view is "group by progress". switching every time is really annoying.
please implement a setting to change the default view

This is one of about a hundred (Ok, only 26) requests for the same feature. Could we group them all together to give a better idea of how many votes this feature really has? I count a total of 390 votes for this. Some of the topics are asking to switch the default to what they use most, but they'd probably agree that the ability to set the default, or for Planner to remember their view from last time would work just as well.
Here are all the links with their current vote totals:

Yes, it should either allow me to set the default, or remember whatever view I used last time. Should apply to plans, the "My Tasks" page, etc.
This sholud be default ! I can't see any "in progress" here to this easy problem. It should be coded in minutes. It is fu..... horrible to reset filter and bucket settings each time! I can live with once a day, but not on every change of view!
This is an essential feature. Each user should be able to set their default view on a plan. Personally I want the Progress view as my default.
Chris Grant commented
Agreed - this would be really helpful!
Yes! I never use the default bucket view. Always want by due date personally. SHould be a user preference.
DANIEL BOHORQUEZ commented
2018 and this is still not in place. Is it really that difficult to code?
This should be basic functionality.
Jonathan Vanasse commented
We have been asking for this since 2016 !!!
If not default, why not a 'remember last' ? so I don't have to reselect my group by everytime I need to login again.
Maybe this is a bit extreme, but I will use Trello just because I don't have to manually select what, to me, is the standard view for this type of tool.
