Is it possible to set permissions somewhere so that a member of a plan can't leave it themselves - only the owner of the group can remove them perhaps - so that the 'Leave plan' option doesn't show in the user's plan settings?

 

That's because it only takes a single click to leave, and obviously this also removes the member from all associated tasks, etc., so it's quite an issue if it's done accidentally, which we have had happen.

 

This issue is is exacerbated by the fact that there is no confirmation dialogue if the user clicks to leave - they just click and instantly they're gone from everything associated with that plan. In fact, if there *were* a confirmation dialogue, this wouldn't be an issue at all.

Unfortunately, we don't have a way to configure this in Planner Today

Hi!
No, sorry! Members can opt out If they want!
PleAse vote on uservoice for making this harder to do by mistake:

Ok, thanks.

 

What about re-adding a member to a plan that they have opted to leave. Say this is done pretty quickly as they realise they've left by mistake. What should happen under those circumstances - would their conversation contributions, tasks, etc. reappear in the plan?

Hey Mike!

 

If a member of a public plan opts to leave the plan on accident, they will remain within the plan and a blue "Join" button will appear at the top. If the member clicked "Leave plan" on accident and it's a public plan, they should be able quickly rejoin.

 

Regardless, when a member leaves a plan their data/tasks/conversations are not deleted although the name will appear as 'Former member'. If a member re-joins, they will still have all of that data connected to them.

 

Does this help?

 

Thanks,

Yes, that does help, thank you.

 

Just to confirm - the data will remain if they leave any type of plan - it doesn't matter if it's public or private?

 

Also - does the data expire, or could they leave and then then rejoin a month later and the data would still be there for them?

Correct, it will still show that someone was assigned/commented/created/etc. but it'll say "Former member". This data shouldn't expire, but I haven't verified this for a longer period of time. Let me know if this is a point that you need verified and I can try to figure it out!

Will do Joanna - thanks again for your time.
