  1. Planner access right

    Now api for planner requires groups.read.all or groups.write.all which is too pervasive permission in a large company 0365 tenant. Is it possible to access to own plans or groups with onbehalf user permission on a single user ? task.office.com has an internal api that can do this.

    Many users have plans that are very large and supporting these kinds of APIs would result in an unpredictable experience for your users, since queries could be throttled.

    The best approach is to use the one taken by our first-party client. Retrieve all the tasks and then filter them client side.

    Our APIs are performant, so retrieving tasks and processing them locally should be easy. For large datasets, you can use diff sync to retrieve any updates that have happened on the service and update your local cache.

  3. To be able to add priority to a task

    It would be good to be able to add priority to a task. Currently this does not seem possible.

  4. error graph and planner

    good morning, in the most cordial way I request support with graph which when I log in to the page generates a token which is of a fixed size that helps me create a task in planner, but I have a problem when I try to generate for the graph url to generate a token, it is smaller in size and it does not create the task in planner, so I ask for your help to generate this task in planner with the token that generates graph that is of the same length and Be able to perform the task…

  6. provide date modified field to tasks in planner so we can see if anything has changed and keep a list of modifications visible in the last x

    if a task moves bucket or is amended there is no way of knowing. we need to track when things are update and to provide an audit of who updated and what they did

  8. Delegate tasks to persons outside of the group

    Allow us to delegate tasks to persons outside of the group - and make sure they only get access to tasks they are delegate to.

  14. Graph API should support recurrence for Outlook tasks with Outlook.com accounts

    I'm trying to get Outlook tasks from the Graph API beta (https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/outlook/task). It is basically working, but I get no recurrence for tasks in my Outlook.com account (recurrence property is null). This works fine for my Office 365 account.

    I'm filtering on non-completed items (filter=Status%20ne%20'Completed').

    I have also tried this with the Outlook Task REST API (https://outlook.office.com/api/v2.0/me/tasks), which seems to be deprecated, with exactly the same results.

  15. Planner Task Change Notifications or Delta Query

    I would like to be notified when tasks are created, updated or deleted in the graph api change notifications. Alternatively delta queries would be helpful in creating a standup-feed of information that has changed since the last meeting.

    Thank you for requesting this, it is in our backlog, but we currently don’t have it planned in a sprint so cannot indicate target release to beta. ^JT

  16. Add permissions Tasks.Read.All or Tasks.ReadWrite.All

    Currently it's not possible to access the tasks of all an organisation members regardless of who is connected to the application. At the moment, you can only access Outlook Tasks using delegated permissions (i.e. on behalf of the current user). You can reach outside their own tasks using the Tasks.Read.Shared scope but again, this only provide additional access to Outlook Tasks that were shared with the current user.

    This would be a great add to the Microsoft Graph API to help Managers to follow the progession of their projects with new permissions like Tasks.Read.All or Tasks.readWrite.All.

  17. Allow Access to Planner using Client Credentials Flow

    Planner tasks, buckets and plans are apparently not accessible using client credentials flow (app only).

    I can access them using code flow authentication, but that's not my requirement (internal web service).

    Everything else seems to work - it's just the planner stuff that doesn't (401 unauthorized).

    Is there a workaround that doesn't require a user to log in?

  18. Fill Users DisplayName in /planner/Tasks

    If you are requesting the Graph-explorer with the following URL:
    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/planner/tasks

    The following result is given:
    {

    &quot;@odata.context&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/$metadata#Collection(microsoft.graph.plannerTask)&quot;">https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/$metadata#Collection(microsoft.graph.plannerTask)&quot;</a>,
    
    &quot;@odata.count&quot;: 1,
    &quot;value&quot;: [
    {
    &quot;@odata.etag&quot;: &quot;W/\&quot;JzEtVGFzayAgQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBAQEBASCc=\&quot;&quot;,
    &quot;createdBy&quot;: {
    &quot;user&quot;: {
    &quot;displayName&quot;: null,
    &quot;id&quot;: &quot;fc03bc43-b0ed-4b7d-bc59-8488a77420f4&quot;
    }
    },
    &quot;planId&quot;: &quot;RVBp6oJJt0K5f6Lq42zBK2UAA-Rs&quot;,
    &quot;bucketId&quot;: &quot;1m6FwcAAZ0eW5J1Abe7ndWUAJ1ca&quot;,

    ........

    The problem is, that the "displayName" in the User Object in createdBy or completedBy is always null.

    Please fill the displayName Property of the User Objects.

    Thanks

    Is it really just the display name? Or, would it be the entire card? Right now, you can use the user id property to query for the details you’re interested in about that user.

    This is one where the number of tasks that people have in a query can cause performance issues. For example, having the entire contact card for each task included in the response could lead to throttling for queries that include a large number of tasks.

  19. Include Planner Task URL in Graph API

    When using the Graph API to interrogate Planner Plans & Tasks, I would like to receive a URL as part of the json, to open the particular plan / task in a browser window.

  20. Provide an API for SharePoint tasks OR return My Tasks (MyTasks.aspx)

    It appears that office 365 has had the My Tasks page removed from the News Feed (previously at https://CompanyName-my.sharepoint.com/personal/UserNameCompanyNameonmicrosoft_com/AllTasks.aspx) As a result there is no place to get a consolidated view of tasks. As of July, 2016 there are three types of Office 365 tasks:


    1. Exchange / Outlook tasks. These are accessible via the interface using the Tasks tile that takes you to https://outlook.office365.com/owa/?realm=contoso.com&exsvurl=1&ll-cc=1033&modurl=3


    2. Groups tasks that are reachable via the Planner tile at the URL https://tasks.office.com/?authpvr=OrgId&authupn=user@contoso.com&mkt=en-US. You can view them grouped by Project (Group) or consolidated.


    3. Sharepoint tasks that are reachable by going…

    Thank you for requesting this, it is in our backlog. There are some product alignment initiatives in play that have delayed the start of this work that are still ongoing. -EY
