I'm new to using Teams and Planner. We have an upcoming study where we have a number of tasks. I have two questions.

 

First - is it possible to have not just a date but a time for a task in Planner?

 

Second - rather than assigning people, I'd like for them to be able to sign up for dates and times they can do some of the tasks (particularly those that fall outside normal work hours). Is that possible in Planner? And how?

My 2 cents here:
(1) You can only specify dates for tasks in Planner
(2) No, it's not possible
Hi, Juan is correct. You need to try the third party apps for such features.

Hard to understand the first one. Tasks have specific times they need to be completed!

And signup would be nice if it were included - hard to use a third party site/app and then have to transpose everything into planner or calendar.

 

So I guess, add those to my wishlist!
