  1. Personal Tasks

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

  2. 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.

  4. I really loved it. But I am wondering if there can be multiple task owners for one task.

    I created a task, which has two owners in actual. For example, there is a presentation being conducted by two members, I should be able to make two owners instead of one.

  5. Integration with Sharepoint Sites

    Integrate Planner with Sharepoint sites so multiple Plans can belong to a Team site.

  6. Add people to plan as View Only

    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.

  7. Create a Plan without creating an Office Group

    I like using the Planner as a personal tool to simply manage my day-to-day tasks - I like the kanban Trello-esque visual way of doing this. I don't, however, need the sharing capabilities and therefore all the associated 365 group stuff created in the background is superflous. It would be good to simply have an "individual" Plan and not have it create a 365 group. It just feels like there will be whole lot of chaos will ensue with people creating all sorts of groups like "My Plan", "Test Plan" etc.

  8. 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.

  9. Set default views

    Can we have the ability to setup default views? Would be nice to have the team to access the plan and go to a predefined view that is easier to consume. I have a project with multiple members and its hard to track each ones actions for them when the access the tools and it goes straight to board view. Can we have the ability to have them go to the charts view with predefined filters? That would help make it visual as chart is a dynamic dashboard that makes it easier to track each peoples tasks.

  12. Sort Plans in Planner hub

    Groups are automatically sorted when browsing Groups. Add drag/drop or alphabetical sort to Planner Hub, or at least default sort them alphabetically.

  13. User-Defined Status/Stages

    Presently, to define status of a task, there are only three options available with the user, namely, Not Started, In Progress, Complete.

    Provision to user's to create more status-tags will help track the status.

  15. 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

  17. 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

  18. Permissions Capability

    Would like for Owner's in a Team, Group or Plan to be able to change user's/member's permissions within Planner so they can:
    1) Contribute
    2) Edit
    3) Read-Only
    4) No Access
