  1. 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…

    • 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.

        • Attach email to task

          Now you can attach a file from desktop or from OneDrive. I would also like to attach an email to a task.

          • Be able to delete and/or edit comments

            It does not appear to be possible to delete comments once posted. It would be useful to be able to delete and/or edit these comments.

            • 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.

                  Hello!

                  Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve just launched push notifications in our latest app update. 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,

                  The Planner Team

                • Personal Tasks

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

                  • Option To Close / Complete Plan

                    Perhaps I am missing it but I can't find a way to close a plan when its complete. The hub view always shows all plans and is quite cluttered already.

                          We would like to have people be able to view a plan and subscribe to email updates, but be unable to edit the plan. This way we can restrict access to a plan's visibility while still allowing interested parties to view progress, etc.

                          • wunderlist, planner and outlook tasks should all live in the same world

                            Wunderlist, Planner and Outlook tasks should all be part of the same app universe and be easily movable and interchangeable weather the user is using the free Wunderlist, a paid Office 365 subscription or Outlook though a classic Office license (non subscription model).

                            why so many overlapping task management apps from Microsoft?

                            From the user perspective one can only see advantages in the integration.

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

                                      • Configurable email reminders

                                        It would be great to have a way to configure reminders across individual tasks or an entire plan. Particularly, I'd like to see:

                                        - Reminders X days/hours/minutes before a task is due
                                        - Repetitive reminders for tasks that are overdue (e.g. a reminder email each day once a task is overdue)
                                        - Perhaps a summary of tasks that are assigned to you, due soon, overdue, etc that could be emailed periodically

                                        • I need to be able to prioritise tasks so that I can focus on the most important and then being able to see those high priority tasks easily

                                          I may have several tasks across many buckets that are due around the same time. It would be good to be able to highlight high priority tasks and then have a view of those tasks so that I am sure I am working on the most important
