      Hello!

      Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve just launched push notifications in our latest app update. Users should now see a push notification when a task is assigned to them. You can learn more about this feature here: https://support.office.com/article/get-notifications-about-your-tasks-and-plans-cce223d6-b0ae-43cf-a080-266e2414a859

      We’re looking to add more notification types in future updates, so let us know in the comments if there are specific types of notifications you’d like to see!

      Cheers,

      The Planner Team

    • Integrate these tasks w/ Outlook tasks

      I now have two task lists in the MS Office suite. Any chance I can add tasks to planner and have them show up in my Outkook task list?

      • Add "Search" Task in order to find a task quickly

        The Browser Version has it workaround through the browser search. In the iOS App, there is no chance to find a plan quickly if you have 180 plans like me ;-)

          Thanks for the feedback! Near the top of the Planner Hub page in our iOS app, you’ll find the ability to search your plans by title. We’re also considering adding the ability to filter tasks on a plan board in our mobile apps, including filtering by keyword. Let us know what you think, we always appreciate it!

            • Direct access to Sharpoint files of the plan in the iOS App

              Hi,
              would be great to have direct access to the sharepoint files of the plan without leaving the app.

              • Sign in with fingerprint

                App should support authentication through fingerprint. I don't want to be required to key in my password so often.

                    • Attachments in mobile app

                      Can't attach documents in mobile app. Should be integrated with OneDrive mobile app so you can attach documents from there.

                          • Exporting a task or plan for reporting purpose

                            While it is easy to track the actions/task but in order to publish the status to se management, we need to retype all actions either in word or ppt.

                            Is it possible to add a feature to export all tasks? May be export to excel format?

                                  • iOS Planner app should support guest access

                                    I've realized that guests cannot use the planner app to asign tasks or visualize them. I believe it would be a good thing to let them do that to allow this to be a mobile solution for everyone in our teams, even people outside our organizations but that colaborate with us.

                                    • Move Task to a specific position in bucket

                                      I need the ability to prioritize tasks and shuffle things around. In a large list 100-200 dragging doesn't make sense any more. I want to just click move and choose the position in the list.

                                        Cannot access all plans (where I don't have any tasks assigned).
                                        Would be good to see the overall dashboard
                                        Would be nice to have the above functionality as management for overall views of work and assignment

                                          When you have the Planner App and someone assigns you a task, you should get a notification on your phone that you’ve been assigned that task rather than just an email.
