How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Integrate fully with Planner, Sharepoint, and Outlook Tasks, Calendar

Please integrate more with Planner (hopefully soon with Kanban and timeline visualisation channels for tasks) and/or with sharepoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place. And Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then in effect Teams is yet just another tool to use that is not completely integrated for communication + coordination.

        The Office suite provides a bunch of places to organize tasks. A full sync of these tasks is mandaroy for an fully integrated Office 365. I see a need asap for:

        - TODO Tasks
        - Planner Tasks
        - Sharpoint Tasks (Projcect plan)
        - Outlook Tasks (flags)
        - OneNote Tasks (flags)
        - Outlook E-Mails
        - Teams
        - Show them in the Calendar

        @warren - any chance you can provide an update on this? It's been a couple months.

        Would be great if every time a task is created, regardless if it's in Onenote, Outlook or any other Place, you could choose to which of your teams and bucket that task should sort under.

        I like to stay in Teams for most of the time, therefore I've created a Team with just me adding my own OneNote, my own Planner and my own OneDrive. It would be perfekt if it was possible to add the "My Task"-section in the browser version of Planner into my "me-team" in Teams.

        Any updates on progress for this feature? Critical for our collaboration in Outlook.

        The integration of teams and outlook is critical for us to build online collaboration, do we have an estimate on where this might be on the Microsoft roadmap?

        There is simply no more important feature for businesses right now than this.

        We cannot move forward with Teams implementation without Outlook Calendar integration. The rest are nice, but if my users can't schedule meetings in teams because they can't see other attendees availability, it's not a useful tool.

        Integrate email and tasks (Outlook) into teams so there could be a dashboard which shows current day meetings, inbox, tasks all in one view (three different columns) on a personal team

        Users should be able to configure exactly what shows in the Files section that is shortcut in the left side panel, e.g. adding favorites for certain SharePoint (sub)sites, additional cloud storage (not just out of the box), allowing both Business OneDrive and personal OneDrive to be added here.

        I recently worked on a busy project with 40+ channels and 250 people in the Team, and a LOT of them had things for me to do. Not all of them could be done at the same time. I need a way to do the equivalent of leaving things in my inbox or adding them to a task list. My workflow looked like "go through the activity feed to see what showed up overnight, handle what I could immediately, and WRITE ON A POST-IT what had to wait." Silly.

        I REALLY want One Task List to rule them ALL!!!!

        So if I have a task assigned to me ANYWHERE I can see it in one consolidated task list in Teams.
        - MS To Do
        - MS Outlook Tasks
        - MS Planner Tasks
        - any other random task list MS dreams up!!

        Feature request:
        Establishing a daily taks overview in each consultants calendar by adding tasks to Outlook.

        a) Like the ToDo app have the option to add each checklist-item to Tasks in Outlook
        b) Add each checklist-item as an appointment in Outlook

      • Ole Ærbo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We are trying out Planner as a task-distribution tool. To gain effective use of the product we suggest the following features added to the product:

        1) Each checklist-item must contain Start and End date as we see the overall Start and end date as the overall task dates
        2) Each checklist-item must contain Estimate time
        3) Each checklist-item must contain "% Work Complete"
        4) The possibility to send an email when a new checklist-item is added.
        5) Assign a checklist-item to a user
        (Not necessarily the same employee that must solve all checklists)

        6) Gant-view for all checklists (like the product Float), but where we can see who has which checklist, when they starts and ends.

        ..That will enable us to use Planner

        This is a great improvement. I note the calendar entry has a link back to the task in the Planner web app. Can that link be to Planner within the Teams app so we can stay within Teams?

        AFAIK there was a Outlook / Project connector already in 2007 ...
        Without too much knowledge around this, I cannot find a picture explaining to me the integration possibilities between Outlook, Planner, Hub and Project
        Would love to have information in the new Office365 world on the integration possibilities between the different apps

      • Joselito Libres commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Connecting Planner and Sharepoint and other common tools from Office 365 would be a great help. Looking forward for quick integration of the tools.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is it possible to link “tasks” assigned in the Planner, with a Task Tracking List in the Group site?
        Is there a way to have the tasks assigned in the Kan-ban board linked to the overall task tracking list on the Site page?

      • ian commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It must have integration, all teams ANYWHERE are doing something that revovles around a contact or a customer....yet there is no way to link the team, channel, or anything really with THE ONLY PRODUCT msoft has for contact management, email, etc.

        Between this and the simple fact I cannot use an iphone to do literally anything at all in teams except chat. Zero ability to upload job site photos or do anything from the field. You must be at a desk, you must be working on files or random typing that in no way involves needing to update information about an actual end user customer. If you spend your day chatting and clicking on stuff in an office THIS IS GREAT
