  1. Additional or configurable date buckets

    Possibly choose them for us i.e. This week, Next week could also include Next month or better still allow the user to create additional dynamic date buckets i.e. - 7 days; 8 - 14 days; 15 - 30 days; 30 - 60 days; 61 days+. Allow naming of buckets. Default them for users who are happy and don't need the sophistication. Also check for overlapping of course.

  2. Navigate from one Task to another

    Assume you're within a Bucket of several Tasks. Being able to cycle through them without closing down and clicking the next task in the list would assist productivity

  3. Additional tasks Layout

    Would be great if we could have a List view of tasks along with the block view so users can choose their preferred styles.

  5. See tasks from external organization in iOS

    Currently you can’t see tasks that are given to you from an externa organization (Teams) other than that you get an e-mail once it’s created.

    Catch 22 currently as you can’t access Planner from office.com on a iOS device as Safari iOS is not supported.

    As my only device is an iPad Pro I need to borrow a PC to access and work with external Planner tasks.

  7. It would be nice to add fields in cards without admin access - at least a super user or plan owner should have the ability.

    It would be nice to add fields in cards without admin access - at least a super user or plan owner should have the ability. Like expected no. of hours for a task etc.

  8. Save finished task as a report.

    It would be nice if it was possible to be able to save and download a report of a finished task, with all information and attached documents.
    Maybe to a word document?

  9. Adding the ability to do numbering and bullets within the task

    When a task requires multiple steps or has different information that needs to be included within the task, it's difficult to identify when one requirement/step ends and the next begins.

  10. Add contact from a SPO contact list to a task

    Possibility to add a link of a contact from a SharePoint Online contact list from the same team site to have details about a contact person.
    This option does not work at the moment. It does not accept the URL of the contact.

  12. It would be nice if as you enter tasks that they would appear in date order in the bucket list.

    entering lots of tasks for a bucket and would be nice if they would sort in date order instead of as you enter.

  13. One task in 2 or more Plans & syncronization of this task whenever changes are done

    It is perfectly done in WRIKE. For example I've got plan "Production" where my production team is working, we have task for IT department (IT department got it's own Plan) So I should put task on there plan but it is not visible on my Production Plan. If i put task in my Production Plan & other departments do the same, then the head of IT will not be able to see all task for his department in one place.

  14. Filter to show all Completed tasks (in Bucket view etc.)

    I use Bucket lists for task tracking. It would be very helpful to apply a filter to show all completed tasks (only).

  15. Have + append tasks at the END of a bucket.

    Inserting new tasks when you hit + at the beginning of a bucket is completely unnatural. Instead, you should append the card to the bottom on the list. Alternatively, put a + control at the bottom of the list to enable appending.

    Let me describe to you what I just did:

    Copy-paste 14 milestone text bullets from a powerpoint slide one line at a time for tracking status cards. Give each bullet a milestone number and set a due date. For each line, drag the new card to the bottom of the list (sometimes going off track and having to…

  16. Admin planner group who has access to other Private Groups and their planners

    I would like to see an admin "Private Group" be able to have access in one place a plethora of other "Private Groups".

    I have a client who has 3 branches in 3 states and 600+ employees and I have been trying and failing to make them a designated page for all of their project groups planner activity, but as it stands I have to direct them to 15 different Team sites to find all the planners.

  20. Add capability for nested comments

    This will isolate discussions of different issues concerning a task.
