Is it possible to change the default location of where attached files are stored. Currently in our environemnt they are stored at the root of the Documents library in our O365 Group.

AFAIK, there is not a setting to configure the path where Planner attachments are stored

This is a huge requrst - would really improve the product!

Hi @Juan Carlos González Martín. Any ongoing work to make this possible? This is a important issue. We are using planner fore different project. If all files are being stored at the same location we cannot use planner. Hope this function/setting will be available soon:-)

@Giovan GervasiI 100% agree with this. I use Planner to manage 50+ projects at any given time, and I had to use the SharePoint document site that is used for the majority of my other files. The problem is that Planner just haphazardly dumps all files into the main directory, which creates a huge mess of files. I'd be happy if I could just have one folder in the main directory that held all of those files, rather than cluttering up the root directory.

@Sivert_Steigedal The only workaround now is to upload the files directly to the SharePoint folder wherever we need and open task and browse the SP folder location and attach it as the link. This is how we are managing it now.
