  1. LABELS

    Along with the other's stating more Label colors, it would be nice to have the label color show in the schedule view (more visual).
    Currently you can filter by label, but it doesn't color code by label (shows all items white on schedule view). The only time color shows up when an items is "Late", and then it's highlighted Red.

    Would also be nice to re-order the labels instead of ROYGBIV order.

  5. Single day view in schedule

    Allow the Schedule view to show a single day. Board view shows today/tomorrow and then bundles the rest of the week in a single bucket. Sometimes we want to look at details for a specific date to see what is planned.

    The week view is nice but a lot of the important details are not see until you select the task itself.

  6. Add calendar settings options (first day of a week and date format)

    There should be an option to choose which data format to display in tasks and in Schedule. Month number followed by a day number is not a standard for Europe. The same for first day of a week (for me it is definitely Monday not Sunday). I would like to be able to change these settings.

  9. Rollup Channel Plans to Group/Team Level

    Being able to create multiple plans as a part of a channel that then rolls up into a Group/Team Level comprehensive view - even if summarized without same labels, or buckets would be great.

  10. Add pre-requisites to tasks and timeline adjustments

    Many times, I have tasks scheduled that require another task assigned to someone else be finished, in order to be completed. If that pre-requisite is completed late, it should push my scheduled task due-date back automatically. This gives me the opportunity to complete my task early and get the project back on the original schedule.

  11. Set default view (week vs. month) in Schedule view in planner

    I would like to either be able to set a default view (week vs. month) in Schedule view in planner; or remember and use my last view.

  12. I need relative dates, # of hours a task will take, and relative start and due.

    My work requires relative dates until the plan has a firm schedule. Also, each task needs an estimated # of hours it will take. With relative dates I may need someone to start on a task the first day of a project knowing it may 3 weeks for a client to get material to the person to do complete their work. So I want the person to start 1 week after contract signing and finish within 4 weeks on a task that I think will take 4 total hours. BONUS idea - it sure would be nice if a user…

  13. Tasks per hour with timeline view.

    Allow functionality of booking tasks in per hour with timeline view. For example, an engineer has a job which will last 1 hour at 9am and another job which will last 2 hours at 10am. The ability to book a task for a certain amount of time and to also display that on a timeline view, preferably with showing multiple persons on the same page.

  14. Have schedule view to show not only week and month, but also for 3 month to 6 month views, similar to Microsoft Project.

    Basically when viewing tasks in the schedule view, it would be useful if i can view not only in weekly or monthly, but also across the entire task duration of say 3 to 6 months. This kid of view is already available in Microsoft Project, and gives an easy and quick view of various tasks across the project timeline.

  15. Team Tasks View by Colleague into the calendar View

    At the schedule View we cannot see the calendar by Colleague, only tasks. It does not reflect the colleague allocation and like in other App (https://www.float.com/) we would like to have it here.

  16. Prioritize tasks in schedule view

    If there are multiple tasks on a given day in the "schedule" view, I would like to prioritize those tasks. I am not able to drag and drop to prioritize the tasks in the "schedule" view, but I can do the same in the "board" view. As a workaround, I go between schedule view and Board view, but that is not very efficient.

  17. Change the date fields to say 'Projected Completion' and 'Actual Completion' so we can see how far ahead of schedule we are.

  18. Assign tasks by business day which can recurr monthly

    Assign tasks by business day which can recurr monthly so on the first business day of every month, task x is to be completed. This would be valuable to folks that work in financial reporting that work on certain tasks every month based on business days not calendar days.

  19. AI to schedule outlook calendar

    Using an AI style solution, allow you to look at a card or a Task and Enable you to be able to block time in your outlook calendar.

    i.e. I see a task come in, I want to find time to block out 'deep work time' to focus on it. Without entering my calendar, have the service select 'Today', 'Tomorrow', 'This Week', 'Next Week' or a specific Date, that find the free time block and enters the time. That way you don't need to switch between apps.

  20. Make completed Tasks be crossed out instead of disappear from the schedule calendar.

    When a task is completed it disappears from the calendar. It would be nice to still see it on the calendar but crossed out because when it disappears I don't remember the exact dates it was completed.
    Thanks
