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.

very eager to see this happen ...are there target timelines along with the "planned" status
Dries Lauwers commented
The tasks created on the desktop applicaton (mac) do not display in the online version of Planner

agree, this is needed!!!
Some teams will have channels with plans that have tasks that are the same. Or an initial set of tasks that are needed in every plan. It would be nice to copy task from another plan or import a list. It would speed up the initial plan creation.

When creating Planner tasks from a team channel the task seems to only be available from within planner. If browsing to Planner outside of the Microsoft Teams app I see a plan for the team but none of the tasks appear. We cannot track the status of the team's progress this way.

It's very confusing that we can add a planner tab within teams (love that) but that the plan doesn't show up in the planner hub - but the individual tasks show up for me - its' quite disjointed. And when it's integrated - it would be great to be able to pull existing plans into a team instead of only adding new ones.

It would be good to know who and when created a task

Ability to create comments without Exchange online should also be available.
After creating my planner tab, my group showed up in planner but none of the tasks did. There is some integration occurring (possibly just from a O365 groups level) but the ability to have tasks sync between teams and planner web would be awesome!

very confusing that planns in teams not the same as in planner HUB. Please make it so :)
Noticed the planner task issue with buckets (sorry guys, still don't like "buckets" - they're lists, groups or something similar but no one has buckets of tasks!).
Also agree with the comments on Planner tasks. This is really important and a shortfall compared to other task systems like Bsecamp and Zoho - you need to be able to record progress and actions on tasks in planner as part of Teams and the best way to do this is to allow a conversation to be started from within a Planner task and linked to it, and visa versa (a Planner task created from a conversation and linked to it). The subject of the conversation would be the Task name in Planner and by linking the two you are avoiding a separate chat/update/discussion area within the Planner task. The Planner Task conversations could have their own default Channel "Planner Tasks" so all the conversations relating to tasks are together.

Planner is a cloud app and teams can be a desktop install. They seem like they should integrate much better.
Same issue me!
agree, this is needed!!!
I agree, that would be super helpful
I will make James Ward words mine.
Planner Hub in Teams, e and Teams plans in Panner HUB
Be able to add attachment to planner cards in Teams like Planner in Office 365

The Planner in Teams lacks the ability to insert links from other apps, and show images as a preview of a task. Please add this ability and, going forward, make it on par with the Planner app in Office 365.

Microsoft has done some great work with the release of Teams. We are able to cut down our e-mails to some extent and the communication is much faster now.
We are also able to create the teams that was there in the O365 groups and linked the share point attached to the group. But the buckets in the planner didn't get synced.
When I created new Planner in the teams and added tasks, I am bale to see these tasks reflecting under "My Tasks" ; but unable to see the Buckets in the O365 groups.
Also one cannot do conversations on the Planner in teams. So to get an update on the task, one have to copy paste the heading and start a new conversation.
So it will be very helpful if the Planner Integration happens and also conversation can be started from the tasks in the team.
