Notifications: only mail

Notifications might be the weakest part of Planner today; just email, not calendar reminders.

Documents shared in SharePoint

Share documents for the plan in the Team Site library in sharepoint.

Group connectors

Office 365 Groups connect to dozens of other services; it would be nice to see these send content to Planner too.

Office 365 integration

Planner uses Groups for membership and integrates -- sometimes at a basic level -- with many Office 365 features.

Labels are not OneNote tags

There's not enough integration; we'd like to see the custom labels for each document show up as tags in OneNote.

A good education tool

Planner should be a good tool in the education market, where Office 365 is making inroads.
