  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.

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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. 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.

  12. Create key dates in schedule view (which are not cards)

    It would be great to be able to mark key dates in the schedule view for upcoming events/milestones/gateways that are not tasks in themselves, but need displaying in the plan.

    This is a little like the '0' days option for tasks in MS Project.

    For example, we often need to show key meetings for approvals, board meetings etc. and organise other tasks around these. Without this feature we have to refer back and forth between Outlook and Planner to see where key dates are, or create a card as a placeholder for the date (but it remains incomplete and unassigned…

  13. Easy steps to resolve Microsoft Office Error code 0-1018

    MS office Error code 0-018 tries to install or update MS office 365 or 2016 is due to network connection errors, internal registry conflicts, insufficient space provisions and firewall rules or pre-set proxy. The basic windows installer files in the PC may not work properly in case of the damage or corruption in the registry. Especially MS office is now an unavoidable component of our day to day life such as universities, schools, researches, and business organisations. So solving MS Office program error has a crucial role in our hassle-free computing.

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

  16. calendar glitch-starting plan marks the calendar until the due date

    In the Calendar app, if you start a plan a week or two before the due date, it marks the rest of your calendar to show that you have that much time left. It's kind of annoying seeing that line stretched across several days, especially if you're just waiting for the culminating meeting but have done all other aspects of the plan.

  17. 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.

  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. Calendar subscription to Planner should not be Public or Nothing

    iCal feed toggle is Publish (to the world) or Unpublish
    This is too insecure.
    Please add a way to control the realm of publishing.
    I should be able to connect Calendars within my O365 org to Planner calendar items without making them visible to the world.
