    You can now choose up to 25 colored labels per task in Planner and Planner tasks in Tasks in Teams. More labels allows for greater flexibility when organizing tasks. Use labels to flag risks, signal delays, help fine tune task prioritization, clarify accountabilities, or categorize tasks around a theme spanning multiple buckets. Anything you can think of that requires color-coding and tagging tasks, labels can help.

    More labels has been a top customer ask and we’re happy to make it available now to all organizations. Try it out in the mobile and web/desktop versions of Planner and Tasks in Teams.

    1) How do you use labels to organize your work?
    - Labels/Categories/Tags - all the same. It's the ability to organize and FILTER that's critical. If we want to see all tasks by (Insert Lable(s) Here).......
    2) How many labels do you need?
    - As many as we can get without impacting performance
    3) Would you like an ability to customize colors? If so, how would you use it?
    - Yes - Not critical but helpful for a quick visual.
    4) How would you like labels to appear on task cards?
    - As they do now would be fine.
    5) Is there anything else would you like to add in regards to labels?
    - Using multiple labels is really the only way to organize tasks when the system doesn't provide the field or feature you need. It's almost mandatory if the system doesn't allow custom fields.
    - We would like to also see a "global" label that would reach across all of our planners.

    "Need the task to be considered completed, only when all assignees mark it as completed. This will work as a team approval. Very urgent! Thanks!"

    Could not agree more - the current implementation is not enterprise-friendly.

    If we assign a task to multiple users it should not be marked as complete just because one of the assigned users has marked THEIR portion as complete.

    How many years is this going to take?
