  1. I want a "Convert to Task Planner" button for emails

    Most of our tasks come in via email, a simple button to convert it to a planner task would be imperative, otherwise it renders the planner a little bit pointless for us.

      We’re in the process of finalizing designs for a Planner add-in for Outlook. From the add-in, users will be able to create tasks for Planner without having to leave their inbox. The email subject and body will autofill as the task title and description, respectively and users will have the ability to set plan, bucket and assignees . We appreciate your feedback and patience and look forward to this first step in what we hope to be a greater integration with Outlook!

      • Office Planner PowerShell module

        Can the Office Groups PowerShell cmdlet set be extended to include additional commands for Get, Set, New actions relating to Plans, Tasks, Buckets, everything? This should include the ability to save a Plan as an empty template as in SharePoint

        • Full Plan and Task Management RESTful (or like) API.

          Some calls might do the following:

          Get Plans
          Get Buckets From Plan
          Get Tasks From Bucket
          Add Plan
          Add User to Plan
          Add Bucket to Plan
          Add Task to Bucket
          Assign Task to User

          This could open up so many possibilities. I would use it to create tasks for users (like tickets) and all the notification and time tracking would be handled by the Planner Application.

            • Different Levels of Notifications/Members/Assigned Tasks

              I am looking to be able to send Notifications/updates on Tasks to only the Task owner(s), not all members of the group, OR the ability to assign Tasks to non-members of the Plan.
              For example. Supervisor has created a Plan of misc. tasks and created different Buckets for each admin in department. When I update Tasks in my Bucket, each admin Member of the Plan recieves Notifications that are not pertinant to them. Additionally, when I try to add individuals that I am working with to one of my Tasks, I am unable to do so if the Task is…

                  • Promote a Group conversation to a Task

                    Emails posted to the Group should be promotable to Plan/Bucket along with their attachments with appropriate metadata mapping, i.e Subject -> Task title etc. We can also establish conventions like @<user> on the subject would be mapped to Assignee etc

                    A similar facility is used quite extensively in Trello to accommodate integration scenarios with external apps but this Use Case is covered well in O365 with Connectors. The unique selling point of Groups is that are email-enabled therefore can act as a Queue/Routing Point for other actions, either manually (explicit UI actions) or automatic.
                    This would require the addition of…

                    • Microsoft Flow: Update a Task or Update Task Details Changes

                      At the moment, you can make a lot of changes to Planner tasks, but there are a few items missing that I would like to see added for completeness.
                      - Update Task Bucket: You can assign a task to a bucket when the task is created, but you can't change this via Flow at the moment for an existing task.
                      - Update Task Label: Unfortunately, Flow can't do anything with labels at the moment. It would be nice to be able to interact with these similar to buckets.
                      - Update Check List: Unfortunately, Flow can't do anything with checklists on…

                          • Planner Task Attachment API

                            Within Planner Tasks, The only way a Link can be added is through attachment. However in current Graph API, there is no way to read task's link attachment, or to add a link attachment to a task. So here is a list of APIs that I would request:
                            - read list of task link attachment and its description
                            - update a link attachment/description
                            - add a link attachment/description to the task

                                • Create Planner Tasks with VBA

                                  Would like to be able to automate the creation of tasks for projects with a template concept using VBA.
                                  We create similar tasks for projects consistently. I'd love to be able to hit a button from Access, Excel or even PowerApps to create the ~15 tasks each time we create a project - rather than creating an Excel file and copy and pasting each one.

                                    • Create Plans from Microsoft Flow

                                      In Microsoft Flow, you can create tasks and buckets, but you cant create plans. It would be very helpful to create plans in automated flow.

                                      • Planner MyTasks webpart in Sharepoint

                                        Update the webpart into sharepoint to have the "My Tasks" view available. Now we can only integrate one or many plans linked to the same group and cannot embed a full tasks review.

                                          Hi, this morning I found my planner hub in Bahasa Indonesia. I tried to reset the configuration but it still in English (UK). In other apps they are in English but NOT my planner! Please make it sync with other apps in English. So frustating!
