    As an update, since we’ve still been seeing issues around date formatting, so we’re pursuing another fix that should help: If you’re using Planner within Teams, we will default to using the same language/local as Teams.

    If you’re seeing this issue persist outside of Teams and your language/locale is set properly for your Office account, please let us know in the comments below!

    Thanks,
    The Planner Team

    We’d love to hear more about the following:
    1. When would you delete or archive a plan?
    2. How long would you like it to be accessible?

    Feel free to include any specific scenarios where archiving a plan would be useful.

    We appreciate your feedback and look forward to reading through your comments!

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

    Hi. There is a section for favourites and other plans. Perhaps add another category for archive. It should be available for as long as the user needs it. Perhaps the ability to export archived plans if space becomes an issue (but not a great solution). Min 3 years but ideally forever.

    As an update, our colleagues in To-Do have delivered the ability to create tasks directly from Outlook.com!

    To-Do has rolled out the Tasks Pane for Outlook.com’s Mail & Calendar, and is also the new Tasks for Outlook.com! With Planner’s & To-Do’s integration, we hope that To-Do will become a central hub for all of your personal tasks, and that switching to Planner to collaborate with others is seamless!

    Here’s more information on the To-Do’s task experience within Outlook: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-outlook-com-416865a1-0c4d-4e69-af6f-f98ffce3747c

    HI. I would like the ability to add an email to an existing Card or create a new Card. Sometimes I get additional information or documents that I want to add to an existing task.

    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…

    Hi everyone,

    We recently announced and rolled out the new Microsoft Project, which was designed specifically to help teams of all sizes collaborate on projects more efficiently and achieve more together. It was designed to be simple and powerful, so that anyone can get started quickly and take control of any project – regardless of its size – right away.

    The new Microsoft Project has been redesigned. You can see your tasks on a Gantt chart (“Timeline”) view, a Board view (similar to Planner’s), and a Grid view, both requested from many of our Planner users. I encourage you to look at the links below and the attached GIF for a sneak peak.

    With this, we also rolled out a new subscription plan called “Project Plan 1” that allows you to start quickly and manage projects easily via the web browser.

    Link to Blog: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2019/10/29/new-microsoft-project-rolls-out-worldwide/

    Thanks everyone…

    PS. I’d like to see the Start/End Dates used as expected dates. Use the In Progress and Completed dimension attributes/status as the Actual Started and Completed (duration calculation would be nice too). Could do an analysis/report of project overrun !

    Just to be clear. There are two distinct Gannt views below (not the examples). One that groups all Projects and the other that is a Gannt chart for just one Project. These are completely different charts in different locations. The task/project dimension attribute could be sorted by end date which would allow people to kind of imply a dependency rather than set an actual dependency. This could work at the Project and Task levels.

    Eg 3 (dashed segments shown because spaces are not formatting correctly)
    ———-|—July—|—August—|—September—|—October—|—. (+/-) zoom
    Task 1 |—1—|
    Task 2 ———|—1———-|
    Task 3 ——————-|—1——————-|
    Task 4 ——————-|—1——-|
    Task 5 ————————-|—1—————|

    Also no start/end date would appear at the beginning of the columns as no dates have been assigned. Also a marker for the current day.

    Eg. 2 - shows that Sept/Oct tasks are being worked on too soon.
    —————| —July—--|——August——|——September——|——October——| + -
    Not Started —-1——|——3———|————5———-|—————6———-|—-3—
    In Progress ——0——-|——-2———|——————-0—————-|——-1———-
    Completed —-4—-|—1———-|———0—————-|—1—|———0——————

    Hi again. In the Hub view I would like to see a line that shows a timeline that zooms from days to weeks to months (using a + or - symbol). There is a line for each dimension attribute (ie. Assigned to, Progress, Labels, Project). The line is split into the count/number of tasks (or Projects) assigned at that period of time (day, week, month) to that dimension attribute. It means this chart allows for most of the dimensions listed above. Also if a line segment is selected the taks can appear in the right hand side to possible reshedule them.

    The same concept can be applied for a single Project and appears in Schedule next to Week and Month views. Below is an example that shows where bottle necks of staffing (Assinged to) occurs.

    Eg.
    1 July. 1 August. 1 September. 1 October. + - (zoom)
    Person 1 —-2———|—-3—|—-0——————|——1—————|——2—-
    Person 2 —-0—-|——-2———————-|———2———|—5–|——3——-
    Person 3 —-1————-|——————4———————-|——-1————-

    Hi. I can see two different types of Gannt charts. Charts that allow linking tasks within a project. The other is a Gannt chart for all the projects (in a MS Team). We are missing the high level view especially. We are getting Planner within Teams and have about 80,000 staff who are dispersed throughout the state.

    Hello! We wanted to provide an update to our status below. As we announced in our previous status update, our initial integration with To Do was our first step in a journey of bringing all your Microsoft Task Management services closer together, including Outlook and Planner. Through To Do, you can see your Planner tasks within Outlook on the Web.

    However, the continuing feedback on this post makes it clear that there is a desire for more work to be done to improve this experience. We want to make sure this feedback and votes aren’t getting lost by being added to this existing post.

    Instead, we’d like to make sure you have a forum to express these continuing pain points / desires, and a way to vote for which ones you’d like us to work on first (and how we should prioritize those asks against the many other great asks…

    Hi. I’d like Outlook tasks to function/look like Planner tasks. It seems odd that you would want to replicate the functionality of Task Managment into two separate tools. How would flags assigned in Outlook function in Planner? Would it be the Due date? What would be the start date? Email received date.

    I would like emails to be able to append to an existing Task (in Outlook or Planner) or create a new task. I get additional/supporting information that I need to manually add (as attachments) to exisiting Planner tasks.

    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!

    With this. I would like to decide if the email should create a new task or append/add to an existing task. A lot of emails I get are status updates or additional information/requirements for existing projects.
