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.395 votes
I want an option to disable notifications for comments.
I do not want to email the entire Office365 Group every time I add a comment. You can't disable this.
Furthermore, if I did want an email to go out, it should be identified as coming from Planner rather than an email from me.391 votes
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
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.379 votes
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.
We need the ability to restore deleted buckets, in a situation where a team member deletes a bucket by mistake it's impossible to recover it, meaning that all the tasks added to that bucket are gone as well. There's not even a warning when you delete a bucket to deter the user from deleting it376 votes
A colleague and I own a task, however when I added a comment and changed the due date on it, I was the only one receiving an email about it, which is really pointless given I know what changes I made and would rather the other people assigned to it received that email/notification/update... Please can this be changed?359 votes
Add the ability to create at least 1 additional swimlane within a board.
Buckets are good, but being able to incorporate an additional "High Priority Swimlane" that spans across the various buckets will make it much easier to identify and track critical work items.354 votes
It would be nice to be able to create custom status’s for your board.
We use additional status’s for when we are working on a task. For example something may be in progress but we would set the status to Waiting on Customer or Pending Testing.
It would be great to create our own status’s that can be applied to the Plan for better tracking.338 votes
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 important333 votes
For all comments, email notifications need to be sent to all assigned to that task. That is the main use of Planner. If team members have completed their task; they can remove themselves from the assigned list, to stop the unwanted emails.331 votes
I like the mobile app and would use Planner a lot more if there was a desktop version.331 votes
Add the option to make more than the default number of labels324 votes
Remove the planner limitation to assign a task to more than 11 people. Currently, if you try to assign a 12th person, you get an error message "You can't assign more than 11 people to a single task."321 votes
The Browser Version has it workaround through the browser search. In the iOS App, there is no chance to find a plan quickly if you have 180 plans like me ;-)320 votes
Thanks for the feedback! Near the top of the Planner Hub page in our iOS app, you’ll find the ability to search your plans by title. We’re also considering adding the ability to filter tasks on a plan board in our mobile apps, including filtering by keyword. Let us know what you think, we always appreciate it!

Showing completed tasks at the bottom of each bucket isn't very helpful when the list of completed tasks is enormous. If Search functionality for Tasks can be added and cards can be archived, that cleans up the buckets and keeps all of the pertinent information at the forefront. If I want to look for a completed task, searching by text makes the most sense to me rather than digging through a list of completed tasks until I find the right one in one of several possible buckets.319 votes
Does this interfaces with MS Project? This would be a much better way of creating, assigning, executing, and tracking project tasks as well as non-project/administrative tasks. Also, maybe the time invested in tasks could flow automatically to timesheets. Reducing or removing the time spent maintaining timesheets would be welcome.318 votes
when creating a new plan or maintaining a larger plan the data entry is pretty cumbersome. Integrating this with Excel would make this process much easier and allow the plans to scale better in terms of initial start-up time as well as ongoing maintenance.317 votes
It would be nice if there was a view where i can see all Tasks which i have created. In the actual Version i have to assign myself to every Task i create to get an overview of all my created tasks.311 votes
It would be great to see more functionality with the checklist function in MS Planner. For example, being able to assign members to individual checklist items, due dates for each item, hours for each item etc.)310 votes
Having an offline app will help with keeping the plans up to date when you are not online. For example: preparing and updating plans on a plain310 votes
