  3. Detailed Reporting Tool

    Provide detailed analysis on team performance? For example, we need to track performance such as how long team members spend on each task, the progress of projects and summarise it every week. I don't see such detailed reporting feature in Team and Planner. Is it possible to extract more detailed result?

  4. Ability to show the task name/card name on Bucket Chart and amount of checklist items to be completed

    There needs to be more visibility of what is occurring in each bucket. At present, the chart displays each bucket and the amount of cards in it and whether they are started, in progress, late or completed which is fine. However, there should be a configuration option to change the amount of cards to labels instead. We are using our buckets to represent products, each product has 5 stages of development represented by a card. So we have labelled each card to be for example: 1) Scope, 2) Design & Develop, 3) review, 4) implement. So we want to see…

  6. function to export the plan to a gant chart or annual calendar

    It would be great if once you have made you plan, you can export it to a gant chart - or a calendar that you can print off in a format that matches the life of the plan (some plans are over several months and I can only see a way to print a calendar month at a time)

  7. Add Filters to Charts + Chose fields for X-axis

    Add filters for fields such as: Label, Bucket, Person, Status (so completed tasks can be manually remove/added if needed)

    Allow users to toggle the axis of the bar chart between Bucket and Label

  8. One-Click Spreadsheet view

    I would love for this board view to quickly change to a spreadsheet view with one click (along side the Charts and Schedule view). SaaS products such as Airtable and Notion do this amazingly to create reports for different functions.

    I don't like the fact that I have to export an Excel file, which I then have to post in a new location and ask people to go to this new location to view. This also means that my Excel file will never be current.

    The Schedule view of planner works beautifully and if a spreadsheet view worked as good,…

  9. Gannt Chart style view

    Are we any closer to being able to view all tasks (including the description of the task) against a timeline - in a gannt style view? Without this, it is not effective for us as a planning tool, as it is this view that enables us to see where there are humps and workload peaks as a team. Otherwise it is just a list of jobs and the charts only tell us how many jobs there are to do. Thanks

  10. Add roadmapping capability

    I should be able to create a set of tasks and then have a road map that specifies which team member will work on which task across multiple buckets. Each bucket would indicate a sprint/quarter or some specific target.

    We need a way to visualize this similar to what other project roadmapping tools provide.

  11. Allow limiting timeframe of Complete status from Status Chart

    As there is no way to "archive" a task, any and all Completed tasks add up and weigh extremely heavy on the status chart. Adding a "Complete within the last [week, month, year]" option would allow for a view of completed tasks that are still relevant.

  12. Show the completion state of a plan by bucket.

    At the moment, the charts only show the status of the plan by summarizing the action items according to their status and the assignee.
    If a plan contains multiple buckets (e.g. work packages) it would be helpful to see a chart that summarizes the status for all tasks in that bucket.

  14. Allow Reporting on Completed Tasks

    It would be nice to have a chart that indicates tasks that have been completed, and/or a count of tasks completed, so that progress can be documented. I believe its important to celebrate wins. This could be adding the ability to filter based on task status, or a filter on tasks completed in a certain time frame, or other. Thanks

  15. Chart showing task progress

    I see that there's an overall Status Chart, Bucketwise Progress Chart and per Member task progress chart. However, it would be great to have a "Task Progress Chart".

    For example,we have three buckets defined - Design, Transition and Operations. There's one task/card per project and the idea is for every card to start from Design, move into Transition and then into Operations as the work progresses. Moreover, each task/card has a checklist of deliverables for each team. We would like to have a per project chart that shows individual project's progress through the Design, Transition and Operations phases. This will…

  19. Checklist used as small subtasks, show them when completed in Charts

    I use checklists as small subtasks on the main task and my manager use Charts to view progress on a project in Planner. And it would be great if this would show all the small subtasks completed. Then he would know that I'm actually working hard and have done a lot of subtasks, even though I have not fully completed all main tasks in a project. Often the last subtask is 'test' and/or 'documentation'.
