Assign a task to more than 11 people
Remove the planner limitation to assign a task to more than 11 people. Currently, if you try to assign a 12th person, you get an error message "You can't assign more than 11 people to a single task."
Please extend the number of asignees , the number 11 is far to narrow.
We need to be able to share weekly, monthly tasks across a whole team, that is more then 11.

Eg if you are a class of students , a workteam in my company , I´d say that around 30 would solve a lot , maybe 50 , 95 % of the cases , kind regards Johan A Wallin
11 person is to small amount. This must increase now directly.
Please fix this.

Please increase the limit to more than 11.Flexibility should be key to allowing the needed amount of students access.
please add this capabilty

This really is a show stopper. Please increase the limit.

This limit has stopped us moving from Trello....we need to be able to share month end tasks across a whole team for multiple products. I'm sure this is holding back quite a few people from switching.

This is a silly limit. What is the task is a demo that the team is hosting and sponsors/stakeholders are contributing to? You need more than 11 people.
Lord, please make it so the limit is higher and so that you can distribute the same task out to all the individuals in team! Assignments is OK for students, but where they need to work on small group projects, or need to manage the process of their learning for a task with a checklist, Planner would be wonderful...if I didn't have to copy and paste the task individually to each person. These would be game changing features for teachers.
Like honestly, if you integrated Assignments, Teams and Planner into one 'thing' that would be just mind-blowingly amazing and you would basically have an equivalent answer to Google Classroom.
I understand the limit to avoid some users assigning something to an entire enterprise, however I do think that 25 would go a long way to help 80-90% of the use cases.
You should be able to assign as many people as you want without limitations. Teams can be small or large so not having this flexibility defeats the purpose of planner to be able to reach everyone at the same time using one application.

Teams can be much larger than 11 people. Often times we have tasks that the full team need to do, it's too much work to create a task for each person. Please remove or increase this limitation.
This is a silly arbitrary limit.
There is no good reason why you shouldn't be able to assign as many people as you wish.
We are only a small business but regularly run into this limitation. It needs to be removed.

I agree, there is a limit of 11 and we have 13 in our group. We have to circulate information via email for everybody to receive it - defeats the purpose of having Planner.
