  1. 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.

  2. View completed tasks in Bucket chart

    We want to be able to see Completed tasks in the 'Bucket' chart. It makes no sense to hide them!

    Also, could the completed tasks not be crossed out, so they're easier to read once completed.

    Thanks

  3. 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.

  7. Putting tasks on HOLD

    Add the ability to be able to put the status of a task on hold, and be able to show this is the status charts - that is a much needed feature. Great work by the way, Planner is awesome!

  8. Allow multiple checklists/due dates per checklist items on a card.

    The ability to add multiple checklist to a Planner Card significantly increases the flexibility of use cases for Planner Cards. Additionally, adding the ability to add due dates to each item on a checklist enhances the ability to manage the activity documented in the Card.

  9. 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.

  11. read only

    It would be useful, eg for Management Reporting to be able to provide someone with Read Only access across all Plan's you are in/own

  12. 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.

  14. Provide the ability to use rich text on the card description and comments fields.

    It'd be useful to be able to use rich text in a cards - formatting, bullet points, etc.

  15. within the integration with teams, allow @mentions

    I like having Planner inside Microsoft Teams. However, it would be nice if we could @mention a team member within the comments on a Planner task and they would get a notification just like the @mention in a Teams channel. We are moving away from the clutter of email, so any additional integration into Teams is a huge plus. I don't want a notification about something I'm working on in Teams to go to my email. It just doesn't make sense anymore.

  17. 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

  18. Move a Plan from one Group to different Group/Team

    As there is not control of the creation of Plans/Groups/Teams
    sometimes a dupicate group or team or plan gets created and the ability to move these plans to a different group (the correct one) is essential.

    Our situation is this:
    One team member has created a Team, another created a Group.
    staff has used the planner from the group but some how used everything else from the team, (channels, site, files, notebook).
    We want to move the planner that is attached to the Group and move it to the one with the Team. Then remove the duplicate group.

    Hi everyone!

    A workaround for this is that we’re currently rolling out improvements to the Copy Plan experience.

    This improvement will include the ability to choose an existing group or team to copy the plan into. You’ll also be able to customize what gets copied over.

    I will share another update when this is available to everyone through Planner’s web experience. Please let me know if this unblocks your scenario.

  19. Using @mention in the planner comment box

    Does Microsoft have plans to add on the planner app, under the commenting function, calling out someone, using @mention function?

  20. A view to see all tasks from planners in all channels in a Team

    You can see all tasks from a Planner in a channel

    But you can't see all tasks from multiple Planners in a channel

    And you can't see all tasks from all the Planners that are created in Team

    Basically you can't get a view from multiple Planners...yes, the My Tasks feature allows you to see your tasks across multiple Planners

    ...but a project lead would be interested in seeing all tasks from the multiple planners that exist in a Team

    The only hack is for the project lead to assign themselves every task, then the problem is you can't filter…
