Fantastic, great tool. Looking forward to future updates


Keep up the great work improving Planner! So glad to see movement forward in improving the product.

Really awesome new features I have already tested in my tenants. A couple of questions here:

  • When will these features also available in Teams?
  • When will guest users support be added to Teams?

Nice feature upgrade!


One question: in the schedule view, the locale seems to be hardcoded?

The UI is translated in Dutch except for the name of the days/months and the first day of the week is Sunday instead of Monday.

Please also add a Schedule view and an iCal Feed for "My Tasks" -

Great features! Under 'Schedule' can I also request to add 'year' view and custom date range as well please? Thanks

Really keen on the year view and custom date range. We are starting to produce business plans across 25 plus departments for our financial year starting July, finishing June.

I love the planning tool but was wondering is there a way to filter by Month?  Within my team we do a Month look ahead and it would be fantastic if I could sort everyone's tasks for the month to look at what they have going on.
