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.
Any update on this?

Definitely would use this! Glad to hear it's being worked on!

Could you give us some visibility on this point ?
An roadmap for Planner - SharePoint and/or Planner - Outlook integration is the future. How will you manage this ?
Biite vorantreiben, gebt Gas :)

Linking a OneNote section, page, paragraph, or task into Planner would truly streamline meetings. It should include assign, bucket, and due date options at a minimum with "more options".
Linked tasks checked off in Planner should automatically be checked off in OneNote (and vice-versa - two-way sync). Links from Planner should open the OneNote desktop app...not OneNote online!

Any update on this?
We have 100+ tasks and it is impossible to use Teams now because we don't have a way to find or search the tasks. I feel Teams is only suitable for small companies with few tasks to manage. Also each task should be given an auto generated ID so that it is easy to find them.
Also totally integrated OneNote in teams AND Planner.
Use case : Meeting management
With : agenda in OneNote, minutes in OneNite during the session and task assignation from OneNote directly to Planner without switching beteween the tabs or apps.
You can really do a difference by solving the nightmare of meeting management in companies

Is there any update from this item?
Teams is an interesting tool, but it will need team-wide summary tools to be effective. As a project manager, I can assign plans to different channels, but there is no universal task view to show all planner assignments across the team...let alone seeing an individual's loads if the person is a member of multiple teams.

The Planner, SharePoint and the outlook task along with calendar are very useful for the users of the Windows and Microsoft and they can have the access of that on their system. But make sure that it won't give error.
For the integration with Microsoft Planner, the member should not be able to delete the task assigned to them. Only the owner who created the task should be able to delete it.

please address performance before adding more features

@Warren are there any more details that you can share?

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
- 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.

Cross functional indexing came up in the Teams Tuesday meeting today. Being able to search for content between OneNote and the Wiki tab. I added the following...
Seth and Christopher, indexing content is a big deal. For instance, I'd like to search for a card we're using in the planner. The ideal way to do this is to simply enter a name or support ticket number in the search bar, but that doesn't work with the planner.
So here is the funky work-around we are currently using:
1) EVERY time a new card is created be sure searchable meta data (support ticket number, client name, person's name) is included in the name of the card,
2) copy a link to the card,
3) go to the Conversation tab, and paste the link. We have just self-indexed the planner card. Now when we want to find the card we
4) enter the person's name or support ticket number into the search bar, and it locates the linked conversation,
5) we click on the found conversation, and it opens in the conversation tab, where we now see the link to the related planner card and we
6) click on the link, which then generally opens the link in the browser, and asks us if we want to open it in the Teams web app or desktop app. We
7) click on the desktop app and
8) the appropriate card opens...
It would be SO MUCH NICER to be able to have the planner card indexed and searchable. BUT at least we figured out a way to do it while we're waiting.
Any updates on progress for this feature? Critical for our collaboration in Outlook.
