Is there a way to set the default view from 'Group by bucket' to 'Group by Progress'
It used to be this way, but now defaults to 'Group by Bucket' which is a bit annoying

Yes, need to be able to customize the default view. Defaulting By Buckets each time is annoying as I have to change it.

This is a really useful application, but I can't confidently introduce it in my organisation until I can change the default view to group by progress. I will get laughed at.

@S3ver1na - I would recommend you to create dashboards in power BI with the details required by your senior leaders along with the rich graphs/charts available in Power BI. You can export the tasks to Excel from Planner and create the Power BI dashboard with it. This creates a nice impression of your projects progress with them.
PS: If you do not suffice with the details available in Excel exported from Planner you need to go for third-party apps to include more meta details about the task and to automate the sync from planner to power bi.

There are several threads in user voice dating back to 2016 asking for this. Doesn't seem like MS have any interest, even though it's a much wanted feature. We've just started trialling this over SmartSheet - which has this as standard.

I cant believe this is still not in place... 3 years after...
Let us customize the default view when we open the Planner in Teams... completely counter productive..... This just proves MS is not using their own tools... if they were this would have been implemented long time ago.... If anyone at MS reads this.... Please please please look into implementing this ASAP!!!!

@jthebergepartnerre Planner getting better and better, but the Trello is also an option if you are not satisfied with the Planner. We are also using Trello until Planner will be on the expected completion level. Without this kind of features like set the default view it is not a serious product for us.
