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.
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.

Can we also have time recording facilities for that we can bill the clients too based on time spent on a particular task?
I saw an announcement from back in November about this feature and it is still not available. What is taking so long?
Gianni Nocentini commented
Please ... Allow planner, To-Do, Outlook and Teams to share the same tasks, sync them correctly across all clients (no bugs) so that we can use any or all of the software apps and be able to actively create and manage all our tasks. it is messy and buggy at the moment.
Thank you very much.

A couple notes.Teams was just enabled for us, and to even think about replacing our current communication tool, it is really going to need email & calendar integration. For example, from outlook there is a plugin that allows me to add any meeting to our communication tool with a simple click.
Additionally, the lack of adding existing planner schedules makes transitioning planner to full team integration difficult.
This one will work wonders when implemented. Thank you for the progress on this one.

Is there a timeline for this feature? Our client wants to know :(
Steve Kish commented
Appreciate this update - look forward to trying it out … this year I hope?

Finally! Thank you for the update and for making progress.
3 years, 6,700 votes, a link to a video created in Nov. 2019, and I still can't add "Tasks" to Teams. Yet you "say" two months ago I had the availability of this feature. I'm calling BS!
Kevin Ruschman commented
So do we know when this will actually be released?

I'm glad to hear you're in testing, but the video you sent is just a marketing blurb. It doesn't tell us what's integrated and what's not. The main issue our clients are facing (and the reason they're not using Planner at all) is the total lack of integration with Outlook/Office 365 native calendars. The iCal publish option is entirely useless, unfortunately. Does this pending release fix this?
