  1. I want to see a complete list of Task card names and descriptions in a View.

    I want to see a complete list of Task names in a View. I tried to group all the task in a single Label. However the column view is too narrow. I am not able to see the complete task card title name and description in a single view.

    This view would be useful for me to discuss with my stakeholders.

  2. Status/chart view for all plans in favorites

    Would like to see status of all favorite plans when I choose hub instead of having to go into each plan to see the charts.

  5. Defined process templates and task -> sub plan relations

    We use Planner for our Projects and PMO. The work is done in one PMO Plan and multiple Project Plans.

    A task in the PMO plan initially represents an idea. During the PMO process if/when the task passas a specific tollgate, it transforms into a project. At this point we create a new plan based on that task and set it up according to our project process.

    As the project progress we manually update the task that symbolizes the project in the PMO process according to the project progress. This is a tedious task and doesn't give us any related…

  6. Planner Update Email Subject Line

    We have noticed that when an update is added to a current Planner project that the email subject line retains the original title for the project and is not updated if the project name is changed after being first created.

    In order to use Acties as an actionlist it would be helpfull if an unique attribute, like a number, would be available. How to make it's unique attribute/number visible? Is not an idea but a question.

  10. Checklist Task for a team

    I manage a team of 12 people (1 more than you can assign to a TASK). I'd like to be able to list all the people on a single task, and have them check when each individual has completed their task, but the overall TASK isn't completed until all 12 people have checked it off. This would also come with only notifying people of pending tasks if they've not completed it.

    Example: All 12 people have to submit a report in 2 weeks. All 12 people have a single check to mark that they've completed their portion of the task.…

  13. Calendar

    Der Kalender bei "Fälligkeit" sollte Montags und nicht Sonntags beginnen, wie in Outlook. Und die Kalenderwochen wären auch klasse.

  15. Make de Planner more concrete for younger students

    Younger students need to see Time available, The Time necessary for a task and they will plan by building their different tasks (with different sizes that correspondent with the length of a task) in timeslots. So in the background of the planner should be the Calendar that contains all their activities and their time for homework.
    For schoolchildren have a lot of major tasks (that they have to break up in smaller tasks to be done over several days) and minor tasks that can be done/learned fast. In the Planner they only have the possibility to show the whole of…

  16. send task to another user

    If multiple people are on the same task but their sub-tasks are contingent upon someone else, it would be great for users to "send" the task to another user so it shows up in their personal feed (along with notification) for them to begin their part of the process.

  17. New Views for Tasks

    Two view related requests to improve Planner:
    1) Can we have a Table view in addition to 'Board' and 'Charts'? - this could be a condensed version of the 'Board' view that some people might prefer, especially with the option of expanding and hiding sub-tasks
    2) Can we move between the 'Board', 'Charts' (and the new 'Table') views in Microsoft Teams?

  19. Plan Name in Buckets to be Identified

    When access "My Tasks" page, you would be able to see all your assigned tasks without being able to identify the plan it follows under. It could be very time-consuming to identify the plan the task follows under, especially in the case of having many plans.
