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 working on the release of the Tasks application in Microsoft Teams that will aggregate data from Microsoft To-Do, Planner and Outlook with more capabilities on the way. You can see Planner data in Kanban views today, and the Tasks app will continue to support that view. In January we announced task publishing which will release with the new app. Get an overview at https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.

Would task publishing in Planner extend to Project task assignment as well? Would be nice if tasks assigned in Project would flow to owners via Planner, to-do and Outlook.

Planner should allow weekly, monthly, yearly, task to be added and tracked.
That video makes it seams that Tasks is available right now but I can't find it in my Teams. Is there an ETA for it?
I think I got the tasks in teams update today? However it is is missing some key features.
1. Flagged email are not showing up in teams app (Have to use to-do or outlook)
2. Attachments for personal tasks are not showing (Have to use to-do or outlook)
3. Cannot add attachment to task created under personal tasks (Have to use to-do or outlook)
As these features are missing, the tasks in Teams does not really gather all tasks from the Office programs in one place.
On the positive side, it is a step in the right direction, and Onenote (Onenote Outlook) tasks are "synced"
It's crucial that there will also be an integration into the outlook mobile app! When i get an email while not being in the office, i need the option to directly create a task from an email and delegate it to a team or team member with due date etc.! its already possible with meistertask, prioritymatrix and many more so please, microsoft, link your apps!
Any ETA on this. Really looking forward to it. In testing since March....
please integrate tasks from project for the web
Arianis Riofrio commented
Allow integration to your actual calendar where you can assign time to DO the tasks.
please include integration with onenote as well....
Being able to use the Planner app within Teams is helpful, but being able to see an assigned task in Planner, then clicking it and it takes you to the Teams Channel that it created in would be the best feature.
thank you for sharing experience Microsoft team outlook and more valuable software next generation require voice system excellent focus looking printer error
Hi, I'd really love to hear an update on this.
Update on this please?
Looking for a solution now and waiting on this will force our organization to look elsewhere.
When will this be released?
Kris van der Mast commented
Having outlook integration, or at least the ability to check email would be a great addition.
We hope to see the release soon!
I think Microsoft is lagging behind in the convergence of "to-dos", "planners", "wunderlists" etc.
One Single app for tasks, with all the features available on teams (not only in web..)
This is crucial..
Update on this please

Is it possible to add Planner as a Power BI data source as well?
Alicia Rico commented
Any news on the release date? Thanks
Progress on this would be super nice!
We also need the ability to tag people in planner, and in one note to assign tasks.
