Add functionality to create dependencies
Add functionality to link tasks with dependencies. One the upper level task is complete the tasks that are dependent on it would become active and notify those task owners.
any update on this? its beeing more than 4 years...
Please add Assignable Subtasks. Thank You :)

Need Sub-Tasks and Recurring Tasks / Sub-Tasks (Recurring Due Dates) ASAP
Ghyslain Hubert commented
I don't understand why I would have to fill up a UserVoice Form to get what is obvious to get from a "Planner" App.
Buckets doesn't cut it mainly because it looks like Scrum behavior but it not everybody that uses that kind of thinking when we manage projects and everyday tasks have to be simple.
I use ToDoist and when I was about to move to Microsoft 365 Planner, I started by doing some tests before I migrate but when I saw that a simple Sub-Task cannot be done, I closed the project.
You get my email address so when you want users to use planner as it should work, contact me and I'll see if its worth the try but for now, I'm getting back to my ToDoist.
ToDoist is really more than "Tasks" inside Outlook and it can be not only connected but also incorporated to Outlook and be seen on all devices.
Its just that I pay 48$CAN (4$CAN/month) and it would be free if it was part of Microsoft planner.
Single Due Dates
Recurring Due Dates
Geo-Localization with Notification when you have a task to do at a specific area or place
Sections to divide Topics for parts of projects so you can group projects and tasks

YES, please add subtask facility
Agreed. We are struggling to implement Planner without the ability to create subtasks with Person and Due Date as the checklist is not robust enough. We also need to see each others' tasks at a glance.

Task dependencies are important. Without that, we have to look for outsider solution.
sub-tasks (or 'richer' checklist) are needed to help this be a viable alternative to tools like Monday or Trello. Project is overkill and we'd never roll it out, but because the Teams environment didn't offer a better solution we deployed Monday... now Planner looks like it's becoming more viable but still missing on this...

4 1/2 years now, almost 2400 votes, 170+ comments. Is anyone listening? That's just on this post - there are about 70 posts that mention task dependencies. Such a vital feature, even for a simple and basic app. No, this won't cannibalize Project - I don't need Project for simple processes.

Um item importante para o nosso trabalho
Agree - subtasks which can be assigned to people and have a due date is a requirement for meaningful project management. Dependencies (between task and subtasks) would also be nice - but is second priority from my perspective
This will be a huge help!

Yes, having a primary task with assignable subtasks would make businesses identify choke points in work. I'm surprised this was a request 4 years ago which we're still waiting on.
Also, custom progress descriptions… (tired of waiting on that one).
Please add subtasks
Definitely needed! Subtasks as child under the parent task will help branch out the independent or rather co-dependent responsibilities.

This will be an excellent idea. This option was available on sharepoint 2010, it will be a great improvement on planner !!

This is really useful for managing a devops type programme. Might be slightly different in that we want to use a serial type number to track. Epic might "We want a great system to deliver xyz" and this is E1 then every User Story below E1 would be E1U1 then actual work items might be E1U1W1. And they are all linked back to the original parent task
