Yes - we see this. We actaully stoped using planner because of this. Its proven to be very unstable. 

Below are updates for Planner. The below screenshots are taken the Ignite session video and I have added the target date for easy reference.

Something I'd like to add to Planner thinking is the concept of Task Dependencies. If this concept was added it would make ordering somewhat easier whereby it could order tasks in each bucket based on dependencies. Yes this would require some thinking in

Hi Santhosh - I'm looking in to this issue - have you opened a case for this yet?

Best regards,


Cookies problem?



Unaware if this is a known issue, I recently changed the name of a card. When I post updates within the card the email sent contains the old card name. Can this be fixed?

Thanks for your reply.

IMHO what's happening is that the notifications are using the internal name for the card that are kept and not the display one...is this a bug? IMHO yes :-)

Does anyone know of a way to export data from Trello and import into Planner?


We have a business unit that has been using Trello, but we want to shift them into Planner, but they have a good history of information in Trello that would need to be saved.

Right now there are lots of App that can be used within Microsoft Flow, when would planner be included.

The 250 limit is going to be removed in the future...

250??? Good to know the limits...som customers will push that one very easy.

Planner has a limit of 250 tasks per person and not per plan. Currently it is not documented anywhere.

I would like to be wrong, but I believe Planner limits are not documented :-(



When I create a new Planner plan with a name longer than 23-25 characthers then the plan is shown with an ending "..." in the left list of all the plans.
