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!!
The last item in the original list, #5, is covered in https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17017147-notification-for-planner-tasks. That one (planner task notifications) is currently in internal testing with a target for release in early Q2.
Because there are many different requests in the comments which makes it hard to update and track status of individual items, we are marking this completed, and will user individual UserVoice items to track any further Planner integration. If you have suggestions in the comments below that don’t have an existing UserVoice item, please feel free to create one.

In the chat with myself section (i.e. Chat>My Username) , allow me to add a tab that shows me "My Tasks" from Planner. This would provide a quick reference to all of my tasks without having to leave Teams.

It would be Great if we can se the planner tab in Teams with the same views we see in sharepoint/ O365 web.
Today only "Panel view" is availiable in Teams.
The "Chart view" is availiable only in Planner for web.

Show the task from planner in progress
if I use existing plan from PLANNER in teams, it is loaded, but with errors: buckets are messed up, last bucket only is shown and it has tasks of all other buchet created in Planner. and then of course I have my doubts, what way THIS plan in Teams will be synced with Planner Planner :-) and if thats the same plan or a copy thereof ? Its not obvious.
If you create a planner in the actual planner app on o365 and then import it into teams it seems to work. But the other way around does not.

It would be great to have the Progress view (Not Started, In Progress, Completed) directly in Microsoft Teams. So that we can use Teams instead of Planner for this.
Please integrate comments in planner tasks in Teams as well, as a task board without comment possibility is quite useless. Still have to switch to the online version of planner...

I am able to see plans created in Teams within Planner now as well. Not sure if this is just first release or for everyone, but this appears to actually be really close to being completed based on what I'm seeing in a couple of my tenants.
There is a workaround since the last update. If you create a new planner tab you can now select 'Use an existing plan'. If you select a plan there, it will be a 'proper' plan in Planner.
Planner seems wonky as a whole. I think things work okay with teams if you had the group first. But groups in outlook has never shown tasks or anything in the calendar. Seems weird that planner doesn't integrate with calendar.

Some groups in Planner can be tied with Teams but some others can not be tied.

Has this been resolved? We were able to connect a planner tab to an existing planner file earlier today.
Can anyone else test and confirm this?

I really like the concept for MS Teams, however when it's integrate with planner at time you create a new channel then create a planner that never make a relationship with the MS Team parent. In many cases we want manage subprojects. An idea to do this is at time you create a new channel this automatically create a "category task" with the name of the channel so every time you select the channel, planner will filter all tasks by this category. This will give you a better control for general and granular details for all tasks in your team.
Not sure if it is a bug but if you create a new planner from a channel you will not be able to see it again ever in planner, just try this.

I can confirm - using on Windows 10. Not able to see created tasks on O365 Planner site. Only in my Tasks....
Any updates on the ETA? Critical for us
agree- blocked for the same reason.

Noticed a new issue with this on Friday last week. When you create the planner board in Teams, it will not show up in Tasks.office.com and just shows a blank board. If you link and already existing one there aren't any issues it appears.
A weird side issue is that the tasks you've created will show up under "My Tasks" but no where else on the tasks website. This is rather confusing for users.

Agreed! Add functionality to assign a task within a plan to any user in our Active Directory without adding them to the team. Example: An executive team may create a plan to complete a project, within that project there may be several tasks that need to be completed by front end staff. We would like to assign the task to the front end staff, without giving them access to view all of the channels, and other plans within the executive team.
