Need full capabilities of Planner in Teams
Right now you can add a new tab for Planner in Teams. However, you are not afforded all the capabilities of Planner in this tab. Its really "Planner Lite." Here are some items you cannot do with Planner in Teams:
1) If you create a Planner in Teams, it will not be shown in Planner itself!
2) you can go to the group (in web outlook) wich is automatically created for the team and click there on planner and it will take you to the planner for the new group, which then cannot be displayed at teams, but the team was the purpose for the group in the first place?!
3) You cannot import a previous Planner into teams; you must recreate manually
4) Planner tasks do not sync from Planner to Teams
5) You can't get reminders for your Planner tasks in Teams
6) You can't choose different views (charts, etc.) of Planners when in Teams
7) You can't group by Progress of Planner items when in Teams
8) No view of Planner Hub
Please integrate Planner in Teams better and integrate Teams in Planner better!!
Hi there, just letting you know what we are still working on request #5 which is the ability to get reminders for your Planner tasks in Teams.
Everything else on this list is done, but if you have other Planner asks that you’d like to see address, please comment below with the URL for that feature requests (then I can merge all these UserVoice requests to this one master request). Then I’ll update the body of this request with all of the new feature requests related to Planner.
Creating tasks in Planner from a conversation in Teams also gets my vote - this is a super important feature that would make the integration MUCH more useful!
Also, having Planner tasks' descriptions and comments work like Teams conversations, especially in regard to enabling hyperlinks in the text.

Perhaps this is a dead thread - but still hoping for better intergration between planner and teams a couple of noteworthy URLS:
# 5 is less important than the actual ability to allow the updates from tasks and easy creation of planner tasks from conversations to happen: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/18715894-planner-conversation-integration-with-teams
I might be a little late to the thread here but is there a way to set up a planner as a template so I can copy buckets of tasks or even the whole planner board to another team.
There are many tasks that we do on every project. Just looking for a way to not have to keep entering it manually every time.
Can we add the ability to create recurring tasks?
Also, being able to "tag" a user in a planner task comment and have them be notified would be great!
Really need those notifications when a user is assigned a task!
With Planner in Teams I do not seem to be able to add Attachments to the Planner card. I cannot copy and paste a URL or copy a Sharepoint link. A file cannot be added as an attachment.

hi Im with Alexander A. and what he is flagging
We need full integration between plan task comments and conversations.
- You should be able to select if the planner comments go to group email or "team conversation" and in which channel eg https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/34478161-sync-conversation-threads-with-planner-comments
Without this you again have a gap and a reason why the team go outside Teams - where in reality you want them to stay inside teams.
- The ability to create task from conversation in team and vice versa.
Hi Suphatra, when creating a new Team, please could you make the process of "activating" OneNote and Planner less convoluted. Currently, you have to go into SharePoint and click on Notebook to activate OneNote[by the way, why two different names for the same thing?], then add it as a tab to the Team. For Planner it's different again, you have to open Planner in O365, go to All, find the Planner with the same name as your Team, open it up, wait a few minutes while it does its thing (in my case anyway), then return to the Team, do the + process to add it as a tab. There must be a neater way of hooking these tools together. Since they are nearly automatically there, how about just adding them as default tabs, like Files [which are called called Files in Teams but Documents in SharePoint sites - again, why the two different names?]. Thanks!

While you are at it, Changing tasks to other buckets as both triggers and actions using Microsoft Flow is welcome (currently they do not exist).
Implementing Flow actions and triggers related to this new functionality where applicable would be nice as well.

In a task, I can't seem to create a link to a file that I uploaded to a folder within my team.
For example, if my team is named "Foo", and the Files tab as a folder named "Bar", there doesn't seem to be a way to create a link to the file "Baz.txt" in the "Bar" folder. Instead, Planner directs me to a root-level folder in Sharepoint that has nothing whatsoever to do with my team.
Further, if I paste a copied link to the file in the dialog, Planner tells me that the URL is invalid, and I can't save it.
This functionality *should* be there, and its absence is extraordinarily frustrating. Please fix it.

It could be nice, if you can park your project somehow, instead of having to create a new bucket and moving it there.

Thank you Suphatra for you update! Here are my top Teams-Planner requests:
== Planner: Allow chats on tasks in planner ==
== Create Planner item from Thread ==
== Integrate Planner tasks in global search ==
== Tag Teammates in Planner Cards & Push Notifications ==

Well, as MS just killed the idea of Teams for Linux we no longer have any use of these features either ...
And it will be great to have the possibility to add a file in a task directly in Teams
Great to read how fervently you have been working on the topics.
In addition I'd really like to add better support of languages and date formats. When in Germany I want to run in English (working globally), however seeing dates in (DD.MM.YYYY).

how about "priorities". Because ervery organisation or person has it's own priority classifications, it would be nice to be able to edit the classes: "hight", "middle", "low" or may be "A", "B", "C" and "D", or any other. So the user should be able to Change the "wording" of the class as well as the amount of classes.
thx so far!
