  1. 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

  2. View completed tasks in Bucket chart & Calendar (selectable)

    It would be very helpful if MS provides a function to show completed tasks in chart & calaendar so that we would compare how much work load per person complete & remain

  4. 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.

  7. Labels in the planner

    Is there a way to report on the Labels in the planner? I see you can view charts on the statuses, buckets, etc. but it would be nice to also see a high level view of the tasks with the various labels.

  9. Use the assigned label color when displayed on the Schedule View as the background color

    Is it possible to display the assigned label color allocated to tasks when displayed on the schedule view as a background color , at the moment they all show on a white background except for over due tasks

  10. Allow Group by In Progress to be default.

    I'm not sure why this all of a sudden changed. But I work on the In Progress Boards and am now super annoyed that I have to switch from the Bucket list to In Progress every time I refresh my Planner. Please put this back the way it was!

  11. 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.

  12. Show Completed tasks in bar chart

    I would like to be able to see completed tasks added to the bar chart. It doesn't match the doughnut chart, which just sees a bit odd if you ask me.

  13. 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.

  14. Set default view in Plans

    We would like to be able to set the default view as desired. For example, Charts and then Grouped by due date. This setting applies until it is changed again.

  16. View Buckets progress as charts

    This seems to have been mentioned in many different ways as suggestions, this really is essential to use as a project management tool, any PM needs to be able to report & track stages of a project, not just tasks.

    Thank you for your feedback. We’ve just added a bucket chart to the Planner charts view!

    Go to tasks.office.com to check it out and let us know what you think! “Leave feedback” from the setting menu or tweet using #MicrosoftPlanner.

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

  17. Reporting from Charts

    Enable exporting of Charts or at least the ability to print to PDF or create an image from Charts to use in external reporting.

    Would also like to see a widget that reports progress or status by bucket.

  18. Need more useful graphs in Charts to measure progress, such as completed tasks vs. total tasks (per plan)

    Charts must help us to increase our productivity via efficient graphs, such as a dashboard. It'll help us understanding a plan's health from a quick daily or weekly look at it.

    For instance, a chart of progression (graph) of the completed tasks vs total tasks, where we could identify if the project stall or decrease in completion pace.

    Also, a chart that display the tasks vs time (e.g. weeks), to get an high level project plan.

  19. Embed Charts

    I need the ability to embed the chart into a SharePoint page similar to embedding Yammer channels on the new SharePoint modern ux. We need to be able to create a start page that instantly shows us information when we open up our IE or Chrome homepages.
