  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.

  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.

  6. 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.

  7. Add/Remove Labels, Sort Labels, More Label Colors

    To summarize these requests, we’d like the following:

    1) The ability to add and remove labels.
    2) When the “Group by Labels” option is selected, the ability to change the order of the columns (e.g., “Move right” and “Move left” similar to the “Group by Bucket” column)
    3) In the Task view, the ability to change the order of the label tabs.
    4) The ability to change the color of the labels and add more colors.

    Here's a list of many feedback entries requesting these ideas:

  8. 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

  9. 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!

  10. Show completed tasks in Schedule (calendar) view

    It would be helpful to have an option to show completed tasks on the calendar view to be able to look back and see all the items in process/scheduled/completed at a certain time. See what resource capacity is/was.

  11. Email notifications for Guest users

    Guest users should be notified by e-mail for any new assignments, due dates and late tasks. At the moment, only Members and Owners receive reminders for assigned tasks.


    1. When a task is assigned to a guest, they should receive an e-mail with the information sent to their e-mail address outside of the Office 365 tenant.


    2. Reminders sent to the guest's e-mail address


    3. Updates to the task sent to the guest's e-mail address.

  15. 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.

  16. 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. 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
