  1. Current chart should be replace with Gantt chart. Gantt chart will give more precise view about any task.

    Planner chart should be like Gantt chart (not bar chart, point to be noted) so anyone can track their task. Secondly there should be percentage labeled so that anyone can get to know that how much work has been completed.

  2. Duplicate

    i would like to duplicate cards for different plans. If I have a plan with my IT team and a plan with my backoffice team and i would like to share/update the status and it should replicate for both plans automatically

  3. customisable charts

    All the fields are just data we should be able to build our own charts. Drag and drop would be excellent with filters and calculations

  5. Extend the current 'Filters' to apply to Charts

    Allow the existing functionality of filtering to extend to the 3 charts displayed...
    ie. if i filter on one Bucket, the corresponding charts to show the associated outputs for THAT selected bucket.
    If multiple buckets are chosen, to allow for the same representation on that filtered selection on the 3 charts.

  6. "Former members" have no assigned tasks and no longer in group, yet still appear on members list in charts view as "Former Member"

    Team members have been removed from our group and previously assigned tasks were removed, but our charts view is littered with "Former members" who show no assigned tasks. In our chart view the name "Former member" appears over 30 times - not the name of the former team member, literally "Former member."

  8. Within Planner Hub provide a Gantt view of tasks across multiple plans.

    Planner Hub is a great tool. What would be a good augmentation is to take tasks in one or multiple plans and see them in a aggregated
    Gantt chart to understand how the tasks look on the timeline.

    A leader may have 3 teams with different plans by design. The leader may want to see all the tasks across their department to see what is running in parallel and have a visualization of the department's workload over a week, month, quarter, etc. The same can be said within an individual team.

  9. Allow extracting planner into Excel format

    It would be very helpful to have an option to enable the users to extract the planner into an Excel format, which will enable them to Print and communicate to stakeholders.

  10. Give manager-level views in addition to the basics.

    I own a team of 8. I have eleven boards. I need advanced charts & metrics to show me how to best manage my team and their workload against the work we've got on.

  11. Completed task numbers in chart view

    Would be nice to see the completed items in the chart too. This was you can see the accomplishment.

    You can see in progress and late - but there's no sense of accomplishment when you can't see completed.

  12. Possibility to assign an effort to a task

    It would be nice to have the possibility to express an effort to the task, as well as the owner.
    In addition, it would be nice to aggregate task by effort and to have multiple views where you can visualize:
    - resource involvement cross-planner (typically, there are multiple projects running simultaneously and to arrange the team it is necessary to get the resource involvement cross-project)
    - possibility to order tasks by name or by effort

  13. Drag emails into lists ,link tasks and use a mindmap report to show links

    Dragging emails into it would make on the fly tasks easy. linking allows flows, a mindmap would be a great way of showing a sprint or goal being achieved by progress.
    Also you could integrate FLOW to react to tasks.

  15. Filter members chart to exclude members with no current tasks

    I have a team with 35 members, only some of whom have concurrent tasks. This makes the 'members' chart unwieldy as it's a lot of blank space so it would make sense to filter the chart to show only members who have tasks assigned to them (+unassigned).

    We also display this information on the Group home page so this would mean it takes up far less space.

  16. Chart filtered by a person

    You can filter schedule or boards, but not charts. I guess I once saw you showing that this would have been possible, but no...

  17. Team Viewer

    It would be great if there is a way for planner to integrate the project assignments for each team member in a Team viewer.

    Currently, if a manager wants to review the current workload of each team member, he/she would have to look at each project and check each boards to see the team's bandwith assignment.

  18. Weekly "task completion" tracker

    Maybe you guys could implement a chart the shows the performance of the team, individually and as a group...

    It could be really helpful to see how the project or team is evolving in termis of accountability and performance to complete tasks.

  19. Number of Days or Hours option against each task that we put in planner

    Idea is to have number of days(Current Date fields can be used for this) or hours option against each task in a planner in order to create some sort of burn down chart which will be helpful in measuring the work pace on daily basis(especially in an agile way of working).

    Furthermore, based on the above data some sort of field must be provided at the plan level which will show the velocity or efficiency(calculated by taking number of days or hours in to account) for a team working in a given plan.

    N.B => Task State(I.e. In progress, Completed,Not…
