I suggest you ...

Add More than 6 Label Options in Planner

Please allow more than 6 labels for a task in Planner. Six labels is nowhere near enough for a viable group organizational tool. This limitation greatly handicaps the application, and drastically reduces the number of ways that it can be used.

    Does Microsoft even pay attention to this? 6 labels is just plain silly. Is this a hobby or a corporate tool?

    Please add more labels, this is a pre-requisite for us using the teams application.

    I could really use more than six labels too and if you're going to the trouble of adding them, then allow a parent child structure too so searching for a parent would show all the parent items and children, grandchildren etc but searching for a child would only show that child and its children...
    Adding that to the chart would then make it a far more useful tool as would a drill down of parents into children.

    unable to work with only 6 labels
    more labels please.
    or a 'tags' field or similar option

    Typical of the new Microsoft way. Too limited to be useful; this kind of database fields should be extendable without limits... And as said it would be perfect for filtering & sorting...

    Why are there only 6 labels? Just set up my first planner and used all the labels... need the option to add more!

    And add a label chart to the Charts tab so you can count how many are in each category

    Thank you for the Planner - just discovered it this week, but yes, please, add more than 6 labels. I've used Trello and JIRA and are used to more labels. We are using them to identify "epics" and need additional ones to support the work.

    Really need more than only 6 labels ! Any comments on when this issue will be adressed ?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We would really like to see more color labels in planner and to have a monthly and quarterly filter added.

    This is an absurd limitation.The radio silence from Microsoft here leads me to believe the Planner is being written out of their Microsoft 365 services roadmap.

    I am considering to implement this tool in our company, as stated, this will be a big concern when I present the tool to the people that will have to use it.
