      Hi everyone,

      Thanks for your patience! Since our last update, we’ve released a few features to address the feedback around notifications.

      We’ve heard loud and clear that comment notification emails should go to only users who are relevant to a given task. Therefore, we’re excited to announce we’ve updated the integration between Planner and Groups so that users following the group associated to the Planner plan will no longer receive a group email in their personal inbox when comments are made for tasks they have never commented on before. Group emails notifications for all task comments in a plan are still sent to the group mailbox. We believe this behavior should ensure comment notification emails are scoped to a more relevant audience of those who have previously commented on the task instead of being sent to all members of the plan.

      Additionally, we’ve added more context to the comment notifications…

            Thank you for your feedback!

            In addition to delivering the ability to copy tasks (within and across plans), we’re now working on a feature to copy an entire plan. You can find updates and discussion for that topic here: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525/suggestions/14744172

            Regarding task templates in particular, we’d love to hear more about what you have in mind. If there’s a particular use or scenario in which you would find a task template handy – let us know below!

            Cheers,
            The Planner Team

                  Hello!

                  Thank you for your feedback. We’ve added an export to Excel feature to our backlog and hope to begin working on it soon. We will update this thread with any news!

                  In the meantime, we’d love to hear more about how you would use this. What information from your tasks would you like to export? How would you like them to be formatted in Excel?

                  Cheers,

                  The Planner Team

                            We don’t have any major updates to share at this time – Export to excel is still our first step towards delivering better reporting capabilities in Planner. You can find updates and discussion on this suggestion here:

                              We’ve improved upon the Filter menu within a plan to give provide options for viewing certain tasks within a board.

                              We are planning to expand upon both the Filter menu options while exploring how to build search functionality that can fulfill the needs mentioned on this thread. Please comment if there’s anything in particular you’d like for our team to consider!

                                      We’re in the process of finalizing designs for a Planner add-in for Outlook. From the add-in, users will be able to create tasks for Planner without having to leave their inbox. The email subject and body will autofill as the task title and description, respectively and users will have the ability to set plan, bucket and assignees . We appreciate your feedback and patience and look forward to this first step in what we hope to be a greater integration with Outlook!

                                        Thanks again for all of your feedback!

                                        We love this idea too, and want to hear more about how you could use a timeline view in Planner. If you have any ideas or scenarios in particular, we’ll continue to read through these comments as we consider this feature.

                                          Thank you for your feedback!

                                          As an update, this feature is still in the works. However, we now allow users to create multiple plans within a Team in Microsoft Teams. You can access all your plans from Teams within the Planner web app. On the Planner hub, you’ll see plans from Teams included within the Recent plans and All plans sections, as well as their associated team and channel information.

                                          Here’s a post with more information: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Access-Plans-from-Microsoft-Teams-in-Planner-apps/ba-p/159141

                                          We are continuing work to alleviate this pain point, and appreciate your comments and patience!

                                          Cheers,
                                          The Planner Team
