Microsoft Planner Teams tab GroupBy Bucket view

Copper Contributor



I've noticed that some users have the "GroupBy" on their Planner Teams tab but some don't(screenshot attached).

Is there a way to activate this feature if it's not showing up?


Thank you!

The second screenshot shows task lists from To Do which is only available in List view, which you can sort by clicking the header. The first screenshot shows a shared plan (either as a tab in a channel or an app on the left siderail) which is available in the Board view, which then you have the option to "Group by".

Until recently I have been able to view a shared group task list in planner as buckets (kanban board) in Teams but this facility has disappeared. Can you advise when this facility will be re-enabled as it is critical to us in managing workload remotely. Thanks.


@Jamie_A205 You can always view a shared plan (Planner) in Teams in the Board view (Kanban board), whether in the Tasks app in the channel tab or in the left siderail. Can you confirm which view you're looking at? You might be looking at a task list that is shared (To Do) which there isn't a Board view.
