      • Add Recycle for deleted tasks in Plan

        Currently there is no possibility to restore deleted tasks and no option to restrict deletion. Assigned person can delete task and say after that haven't seen it.
        In other case, deletion can be done by reason. Nevertheless, ability to restore is important.
        Both situations can be handled by old good Recycle for deleted tasks, placed under Plan options. With ability to restore task with all important info: attaches, comments, check list etc. Restore of bucket and labels is nice to have.
        Thanks, Ivan

              • Remove 250 task limit per person per plan.

                Currently, there is a 250 task limit per person per plan. The error states “You've run out of space! Delete some old tasks and projects to continue creating new ones.” Removing completed tasks defeats the purpose of using Planner as a historical task tracker if resources are limited to 250 tasks.

                • Share plans with external people/customers

                  Please let us share plans with external people. Or at least tell us how to do this! For example, if you work in a project with a customer, they may want insight in your work.

                  • Permissions levels that block users to delete or conclude tasks

                    Any user can conclude, delete, alter due date and do other modifications on any task. Only the task's owner and the group owner should be able to do that.

                      • Track percent complete for in progress tasks.

                        Currently the only status on the task is in progress, not started, completed, or late (if you assign a due date). It would be nice to have a percent complete entry for in progress tasks. I nice slider bar visual would be a good way to set it. This way it also opens it up for integration with other systems (like Project Online) to rollup percent complete of the plan to a high level task in Project Online.

                        • Ability to add email as Planner Task

                          Many time - new action items come in from clients and consultants as emails. It would be great if from the web app I could convert an email to a planner task - carry the body of the email as a note - and automatiacally add any attachments as documents attached to the task.

                          Look at Todoist for inspiration.

                                Thanks for everyone’s patience on this item. We’ve completed our first item in this space. We now set Task Activity Email Notifications (Assign and Complete) to Off By Default. Plan/Group owners can turn this setting on/off in the “Edit Plan” dialog.

                                We still have additional work planned in this area such as providing more granular controls to which activities will trigger notifications and more control over cases where you’ve been assigned tasks.

                                Thanks again for the feedback!

                              • One global Calendar for all "Tasks" from all "Plans"

                                Getting all scheduled tasks/dates to show up on one global calendar feed is essential. Right now Planner creates a separate "Calendar" (which does not display any of the created tasks - its just an empty calendar - must be a glitch) there is a limitation to overlay 10 calendars total to your main calendar. Ideal approach would be to have a "Tasks" calendar that would feed all "Plans" from all "tasks" to one calendar with active link to that task in planner abbreviation or listing of "Plan" name. This would allow team leader to print a weekly calendar showing all…

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,

                                      It will be great to assign personal tasks without any need to create groups in order to track personal workloads.

                                      • Add new progress descriptions

                                        The progress descriptions are too simple. You should be able to create new ones, like planning, design, testing etc.

                                        • Add more label colors

                                          I can only see 6 label colors and I need 10. Is there a way to create more label colors or some other way to color code categories?
