Integrate tasks in planner with Outlook Tasks & Calendar
Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.
We are currently testing the new Tasks app internally. We will share an update as soon as it’s available.
any update here? any beta testing options?
When I add a task, it allows me to assign and set a date. It would also be nice to have the "radio" button for priority as easy access.
like a Watch this task option?

If you can integrate Tasks within Teams and map tasks to each teams. The interface of the tasks needs to be integrated within Teams application, so there is no need to open Outlook.

Any Update @Alex ?

This would be an awesome improvement to have. I hope this is available soon!
Allow @member in the task comment.
Notify all menders of comment in a task.
Actually alloy @member in any comment, note field. Keep it consistant.
This would be very valuable to me as well!
Can't wait for this to arrive ... it will be of immeasurable benefit to my team

Looking forward to this functionality - will add to the awesome teams user experience!
Yes! yes! Go! go! But a new app? Is To Do and Planner integration with the beautiful Outlook app possible? I need some non-Microsoft apps too on my home screen :-)
ToDo, Planner, Outlook, OneNote, Power BI, OneDrive and Sharepoint apps are enough and yes, other Microsoft apps are grouped also on my home :-)
Why don't you just use Microsoft ToDo? It does all of this - and much better than Tasks in Outlook :-) I do hope ToDo is not disconnected in this process.
Let us know if you need beta testers.

Safe to say that Teams usage is picking up steam, for obvious reasons, and I applaud MS for starting to make key features like this a priority. Looking forward to this one!

Maybe add Planner to Outlook?
Still actively working on this...from a year and a half ago?
Update please. Thank you.

Currently, to see how other team members are doing with their tasks (or if they have late tasks), as a supervisor I have to be assigned to the task as well, but that makes it hard to navigate to my tasks.
Instead of just a "My Tasks" tab, I wish there was a way to see how other team members are doing with their tasks without having to assign myself the task.
Add tasks management tracker

Please provide update on this. I dream of the day this feature is implemented.
