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.
We are now preparing for the roll out of Tasks in Teams which will integrate additional features integrating To-Do and Planner. This includes additional list views that also extend to tabs in teams. Further announcements about additional integration in our overall Tasks coherence effort will follow.
You can follow the rollout via our Roadmap item: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=57213. To see a preview of the experience, please visit https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.

but, at Planner, can we use @ to notify teammate
woo chin commented
I agree, I find this project pretty good
Any update on when to expect this feature to roll out? I see it's scheduled for a March CY2021 release in the roadmap...
As long as updating tasks in planner alerts the whole team, using this product is a no-go for us. Not sure the logic behind this functionality.
We really need to be able to create tasks (Planner) from meeting notes. would be great to have a sendable summary for meeting notes as well.

Totally agree with having the ability to create a MS To-Do Task from a Team Channel Chat. This would allow a user to easily organize Chat's for quick follow-up at a later time via To Do list items. You could also organize into To Do Groups and Lists. This could be very powerful.

I definitely enjoying every little bit of it. It is a great website and nice share. I want to thank you. Good job! You guys do a great blog, and have some great contents. Keep up the good work.
It would be great if you could add any chat-answer directly to Microsoft To-Do as a task

Almost 9 months with no update and now Roadmap link is broken. Did they just abandon this?
Also please make all of this work in private channels to avoid needing to makes new teams for everything
David S. commented
Any update with this (been 6 months since last update) since the the road map link above shows no information

I love all the microsoft tools, but the one thing that would connect everything, is the ability to set tasks, reminders in any of the apps, and link back to my calendar. This would fully give me the ability to plan all activities in one place... my calendar. Is this something that is being considered as part of this suggestion?

Another feature missing is the option to access personal planner in Teams. If a create a Planner in the the Planner App, I won't see it listed in the Teams Planner App, but I see all my task from that planner listed.
Outlook is the most usable part of the Microsoft 365 package. For example Excel is the most powerfull part
The Teams should be connecting people about that easily. So, please follow good things in Microsoft 365.
Search, Find, Sort, Export,...
We need flagged emails and the boards view back please
Tue ZIlba commented

am i missing something in this? is there a way to add a task from a chat or a teams?

Hello everyone we built a tool that helps you plan your day and harmonizes tasks across all your tools including - Microsoft to do's, planner, Calendar, OneDrive, SharePoint, Asana, and more. Would love to get some feedback on our tool (send me a message if you would like to provide feedback) or visit www.vineforce.com

It would be great if you could have planners in one-on-one conversations or private channels too!
I agree with Scott! Such disappointment. This feature has massive potential, but now maybe 5% of the productive potential is unleashed.
Also an incresible amount of small issues left to resolve. X can be done via To Do, but not via Tasks in Teams. Y can be done in Tasks in Teams, but not via mobile version of Planner, renaming a plan in Planner Web doesn't rename the plan in Teams. In order to rename in Teams one needs to rename the Tab in the Team. And deletinga plan doesn't delete the Tab. I could go on forever.
If you can combine To Do, Tasks in Outlook, Planner etc into a seamless experience I will be amazing. But how to get buy-in internally, when people are frustrated for day 1. Really hard.
