    Thanks for your feedback!

    We’d like to add custom columns to Planner, but don’t have anything planned at this time. We’re working on three big initiatives that are landing later this year (stay tuned!) and will likely start work on recurring tasks soon after.

    Please continue to vote as we utilize UserVoice heavily to order our product backlog and will adjust regularly if things change!

    Thanks again for your patience and feedback,
    The Planner Team

    Customization is the thing. Should be available for fields and progress description: there's another story related to this:

    https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/14744148-add-new-progress-descriptions

    Move on and support it, too.

    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:

    Thank you for your patience and feedback! If you have any other suggestions on how you’d like to utilize reporting functionality in Planner, please comment below!

    Cheers,

    I really would love to have more flexibility, because we could use this for agile improvements. Currently we need to use buckets for creating a kanban view, but want to use buckets for different topics of the tasks - like it's intended.

    So, let us create our own progress descriptions (with the ability to filter and reorder the plan using these).

    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

    1. If a plan is created as duplicate or false, I would delete it to decrease redundancy. But if many people worked on it, but it's not needed anymore (e. g. the project is done), I'd like to archive it. Maybe the discussions and the files are important at any time in the future.
    2. It should be accessible at anytime without an end date. But every archived plan should be in a group not visible directly, but via one click.

    Would be great. Especially with a link of tasks to other plans like asana allows. A story for this, I've found:

    Our company uses asana and really loves the functionality of subtasks, which can be handled like the top level tasks. So this is a big argument against teams and pro asana

    Hello! Since this is one of our top asks from users (and has been for quite a while), we wanted to provide a quick update here. As mentioned in our last update, our team has been heads down shipping some recent integrations, such as the Tasks app in teams and Tasks in Docs (both of which have initial versions rolling out now!).

    Recurring tasks (and the other top UserVoice asks) are still high on our backlog. I’ll provide updates here as this feature gets closer to being shipped! We also may use this forum to reach out to you, our engaged users, with design questions we have—so stay tuned if you’d like to help us bring you the best version of recurring tasks!

    In the meantime, it’s great to see so much active engagement here. We continue to iterate on our initial designs as we get more feedback from users,…

    Hi everyone!

    Thank you so much for your feedback and sharing how you use labels. We’ve been working on improving our labels experience, and will continue to do so. With that, we are working on increasing the number of labels that you can use in Planner!

    Ralf Lienesch commented  · 

    1) How do you use labels to organize your work?
    In different ways. On organziational level we use labels for our OKR system, so we can tag every affected department - which are way more than 6

    2) How many labels do you need?
    Around 20 inactive and around 3 to 6 actively shown

    3) Would you like an ability to customize colors? If so, how would you use it?
    Would a nice to have thing - for example to create a color for every department

    4) How would you like labels to appear on task cards?
    Like it´s done with the new update (awesome :))

    5) Is there anything else would you like to add in regards to labels?
    To sort the labels alphabetically and to have the chance to reorder them

    Would be awesome to get this functionality. We want to work with teams companywide and need often the opportunity to create more than 6 labels - for example for our OKR cycle, in which we want to tag all the affected departments (there are way more than 6).

    Thanks for sharing your feedback.

    We would like to hear more about how you would utilize this view. If you have a particular scenario or set of teammates for which you’d like to view tasks for, please share below!

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

    That would be awesome! As a team leader, currently I can't take a look at all of the tasks of my team members.

    So it's not possible to get a quick overview for planning resources. So it's not possible to lead the team efficiently with teams. Especially with bigger teams it's s huge minus.

    @Planner Team: Your last update was from 2018. Are there any news?

    We as a company of 350 people really need this feature to work with teams efficiently.

    In asana we have this feature and it's such a basic one to use.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for your patience. We have updated our Copy Plan experience – please try it out today!

    This improvement will include the ability to choose an existing group or team to copy the plan into (or choose to create a new group). You’ll also be able to customize what gets copied over. Attachments can only be copied over into existing groups.

    You can learn more here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/planner-blog/expanding-the-copy-plan-and-filtering-features-based-on-your/ba-p/1483491
