  1. Logic Flow Connector

    Planner entities (Boards/Tasks) should act both as a trigger as well as an action recipient of Logic Flow as well as Azure Logic Apps. This way we can enable workflows integrating with external SaS apps (VSTS the obvious candidate) as well as internally within O365.
    Trigger examples: when a Task is closed, when a Task is (re)assigned, when a Task moved to another Bucket, when a Task is created.
    Action examples: create a Task, add comment/attachment, move to another Bucket, change Task priority/assignee (or more according to the Roadmap) - essentially whatever can be surfaced through the graph task api.

          • Drag and Drop tasks between different plans

            I have different plans for different people on my team, Sometimes tasks need to be moved to someone else. it would be nice to be able to drag a card from the board on one plan and drop it on an entirely different plan in the left-hand column.

              • Completely Replace Outlook Tasks with Planner.

                Outlook tasks are outdated and have tons of limitations. REPLACE Tasks with Planner. Include Planner as part of all O365 plans offering Exchange Online. People who use Outlook with Exchange Online should get the Planner Version of Tasks. This to my mind would kill all competition in the mail client + task management areas across all devices.

                • Add icon to plans

                  The short-cuts on the left side of the user interface is useful for jumping between different plans. However, it only shows two letters for each group e.g. CB for consumer b2b.
                  It would be great if a plan/group could have an icon instead to make it recognizable.

                  • Reports

                    This tools is great for tracking teams and reports. I'd like to have an option to export the data to share with management and peers or simply as a historical reference. It would be awesome if the reports could maintain the vision that is displayed in the UI.

                    • Android Push Notifications

                      There should be a notification for the app itself instead of a email I'm sure I'm not alone on this idea.

                        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

                          • add dates to checklists

                            Ascribe a date to the items in a checklist, as at the moment there is only the task timeline that is available. It would help to breakdown the expectations associated with a task especially if it would be pointless to spread it across multiple cards.

                              • Integrate with TFS and VSTS

                                Let me create an external service endpoint from VSTS and/or TFS to Microsoft Planner (usually works via WebHooks) so that my iterations and deadlines show up in specific plans. Thus, my customers and managers don't have to learn a new tool (TFS/VSTS) and nor do I have to create reverse proxies to allow access to the internal-facing TFS server.

                                  As the Manager of a department I would like to group plans e.g. by department

                                  This would allow the MD or Exec Team to then see what the business is working on by group/department.

                                  Groups would then have admin members, working members e.g. Marketing Team and view only members e.g. Directors

                                  • Integrate / link Planner tasks to Project Online tasks and Planner plans to Project Online Summary Task

                                    Project Online does not have Agile views of its tasks (such as vertical lists in common agile task tools like Trello, Pivotal, Jira, and now Office Planner). The lack of agile-like boards for Project Online is a huge barrier to development teams, but exec mgmt. wants the rich reporting and resource mgmt. of Project Online. The lack of synchronizing Project Online to external boards makes managing very difficult.

                                    • Ability to change background color

                                      I'd like to be able to change the background color - easier to identify what board I'm in + cards would stand out more. Depending on display we use, there is not enough contrast between cards and background, making it hard to see.

                                        Please can we create more labels we have large teams now using Planner and they need more labels to distinguish projects

                                        • Microsoft Teams Integration Problems

                                          Microsoft Teams Integration Problems.

                                          When we add tasks to a Teams Project, we cannot add new ones from planner, but we can view them. Also the tasks added from Teams have reduced functionality. All very annoying.
