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.

Updates? It's been more than a "couple of months" :)
This seems like one of the most fundamental things that TEAMS is lacking today.
I understand the planner is project management LITE, are there any plans to integrate to MS Project or other PM tool that makes is SEAMLESS between collaboration and project management.
What solutions do you propose while this integration is still in the works?
I have existing task libraries that I want to visualize all together in a new plan.

Hello, do you have a date or a schedule for this evolution request?
It's true that having a planner in Teams with tasks that does not appear in our Outlook schedules is really blocking.
We are also heavily struggling with this problematic. Multiple meetings, minutes here and there, action points created in those meetings across the company. Then try to see what needs to be done next... Microsoft does not currently really provide any solution for this. Teams (comms and meetings) - Onenote (meeting minutes) - Planner (team level action planning) - ToDo (individual person all ToDo's) integration might solve the issue if planned carefully.
But frequent updates from MS on this issue would be valuable for us as a community trying to use MS solutions in businesses.
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.
