  1. not all users can log into planner

    Just wanted you to know that not all my users can access Planner in the browser. It's not even showing up in their apps. Why is this? They have been assigned tasks.

    • change Planner descrption in French

      Presently, Planner description in English is about planning tasks. In French the present translation is meaning scheduling, which is inappropriate.

      • Fix UI on Tablet browser view

        On IOS the left hand navigation keeps obscuring the bottom left app launcher icon and on an iPad it's too easy when scrolling through a plan to move tasks between buckets. The feedback button also returns the license agreement so I'm having to enter this on a PC.

        • Fix "Send Feedback" in Safari

          "Send Feedback" in Safari on iOS links to the license rather than to this forum. Please fix.

          • Renaming a link messes up which links are attached to which card

            If I have links to a Card and I rename one of the files that was linked (a file in my synchronized SharePoint folder), suddenly the links of a bunch of different cards are incorrect. For example a card that had 2 links now has 3 and one was originally with another card, a card that had 2 links now has 0. I have screencapture examples.

                It would be useful if Planner could allow you to visualize the completed tasks in a graphical way.
                Today, whether in the Table or Graphics or Planning tab, Planner focuses on showing tasks that have not yet started or are in progress.
                But for activity monitoring and traceability purposes, it would also be useful to be able to visualize (in real time or through reporting) the history of the tasks performed.

                • Filter tasks on team

                  In the planner app, you can see al your plans of the different channels. Now you can just filter on Plan (w.i. Channel), Progress or Deadline. It would be nice to be able to filter on Team. Now it is not possible to overview all plans in a Team in one view.

                        • Remove maximum 11 user limit per task

                          We try to use Planner (in MS Teams) to manage our project overview.

                          In this case single tasks/slides represent a whole project. E.g. one plan for rules and legislation projects contains buckets: analysis, develop solution, implement solution, review)

                          On certain projects the project member list is longer as 11 persons. Remove this 11-user limit so that all task/slide/project related members can be added and notified on comments (once they replied once!)

                            • Need more features to be usefull for a team

                              Need at least Gantt chart visualization, calendar visualization, and time tracking feature.
                              Without this features the all purpose of the software is a bit missed.

                              Additional features but not essential would be pricing of the project. Team permissions, evaluation of team workload.

                              • Entering notes within the task

                                It would be good to have a feature that allows you to leave notes within the task that do not get automatically emailed. These notes would typically be status updates or diary entries so you can keep track of what you have done. These notes do not need to be emailed. They just stay with the task.

                                • Change the Planner Group Email address when the Planner Group Name is updated

                                  When a Planner Group name is updated, the underlying Group Email address does not change from the original name assigned.

                                  I can quite see that some Group email addresses will need to remain unchanged, but in many cases this discontinuity is highly confusing.

                                  Please enable check-the-box options on the Manage Group pane to either auto-update the group email address to align with the new group name, or else enter a manual email address override, for use when different plans/groups can share the same group mailbox.

                                      Notification emails sent when a task is assigned to "me" should include the project and bucket in the email - in addition to the task link - so the user can put the assignment in the appropriate context.

                                      • planner group access - Teams connection

                                        We want to be able to have a planner tab with plans within Microsoft Teams, but be able to add someone to a task in Planner , without giving them access to the group and therefore the teams site, files etc.

                                        • When creating Plans in Channels on a Team Site, need to be able to show a summary of those plans in the General Channel

                                          We use channels as projects in an overall team. At the top level (General), we should be able to show a summary of all the tasks from all plans in the Team. Chart views would be fine.
