        • Dashboard showing tasks in timeline/calendar view (like a gantt chart).

          I would like to see a dashboard showing tasks in chronological order that populates as I add tasks. I would like to see this in a calendar/timeline view.

          I would also like to be able to sort tasks within a bucket by chronological or reverse chronological order.

                • View completed tasks in Bucket chart

                  We want to be able to see Completed tasks in the 'Bucket' chart. It makes no sense to hide them!

                  Also, could the completed tasks not be crossed out, so they're easier to read once completed.

                  Thanks

                  • Facility to download a Excel report on task details

                    Facility to download a Excel report on task details in a Plan by assignee, by bucket. Currently no such facility is available hence no offline analysis can be done on the delays in completing the tasks.

                    • Totalling days/hours estimates for each category

                      For each task, add an estimate for the days or hours for that task. Then for each vertical, provide a sub-total of the days/hours recorded in each task.

                      Similar to what Trello does already.

                      • Don't show completed tasks in Charts

                        Why in the bar graph of member don't show completed tasks? If in the circular graph(chart) show all tasks, including completed tasks, why it wasn't done for the bar graph?

                        My boss would be happy if it could be done!

                        • Planner Dashboard

                          I would like to see the status of all current, completed, in progress, and past due tasks by assigned without having to open each individual plan. The bar graphs are great. I would like to see the same thing in a 10,000 foot view for all projects in a single dashboard.

                            • Have a chart feature that includes all the channel plans tasks within 1 team

                              The chart feature is a great view, but it is for the moment only available at the planner level. If you have multiple plans within a team (I have plans per each channel for example) - you can't see the combined team chart.
                              This could be very useful to have resource planning and resource monitoring. Who has to much work and who can help that person

                                • Create a Chart view in the Planner Hub for selected plans - a programme dashboard

                                  When reporting on a number of functional area projects that form part of a bigger programme of activity, being able to view a "Chart" showing overall progress within selected plans would be useful. It could then be used to report as a programme dashboard. There could either be a facility to select two or more plans and click a "Chart Dashboard" button or perhaps to move plans to a category similar to "Favorites" that then provides an updated chart as individual plans progress.

                                      • Simplified Burndown Chart

                                        A simple Burndown Chart can be built with just a start and end date, plus total tasks in the Sprint.

                                        The ideal burndown is calculated based on total days in Sprint / total tasks.

                                        • Create overview of project timeline

                                          Many project management tools have a timeline overview. It would be a great addition to the Planner app, so that you could see a timelime for a bucket, tasts or even a specifik person. Like a Gantt chart of sorts, but more intuitive and integrated with calendar and tasks.
