We have adopted Microsoft Teams & Planner over the last two years for project management of high volume residential construction projects.
We have become very reliant on the "Board View" within Planner. Each user has historically been able within Teams to view all tasks assigned to them across all Teams in the My Tasks tab of the Planner app, and the tasks show up as "tiles". We have become heavy users of the "show on card" functionality to ensure that multiple assignees can keep track of tasks concurrently.
We are concerned as several of our users appear to have had changes to their desktop apps in the last two days which has added the new "list" view associated with the amalgamation of To Do and Planner (ie. the new "Tasks" app). What is most concerning is that the Board view appears to be restricted to each individual Team now, and we cannot see how to replicate the former combined Board view (for all Teams together) that we have become so reliant on.
We would appreciate prompt attention to this item - at this point if we cannot get this resolved, we may be forced to look into alternate task management platforms that provide more fluid access to tasks across multiple Teams concurrently.
I have attached a photo of the "old view" which is preferred (Board view showing My Tasks across ALL teams concurrently) VS. the "new list view" which for us is problemmatic.
Preferred "Old View" (Board):

@lhutton28 I agree completely. I work on multiple teams at my organization, and became heavily reliant on the Planner board to prioritize and organize my work. We absolutely need the Board view for the "Assigned to me" tasks to allows viewing my tasks across multiple planner boards from 1 screen. The Board view
Additional improvements that would be helpful, it would be best to allow user to set default views and more filter options.
Examples of allowing user to define defaults: default to Board view (instead of List view); within Board view, default to Group by Plan (instead of Group by Progress)
Examples of allowing enhanced filters for the Assigned to me view: allow filtering by Source (instead of only by due date and priority).

@Brian SmithNo! No! No! Fault Fault Fault! Board View is NOT ONLY because drag&drop between users. The most usage is for the unique visibility (buckets side by side), using the checklist in a task card, drag&drop the cards between buckets and change positions in a bucket. Many Single User define their workflows with the canvas board! It's very important!!!

@TeamsAboud weighing in that getting the board view feature back into the iOS-based app is critical. I take my iPad to every meeting in the hopes of updating my teams’ boards and also frequently use my iPhone to check board movement. The Trello app board interface is gorgeous on iPads/iPhones, very close to switching over to it if Microsoft can’t get this fixed. Frustrating!
