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.
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.

You should be able to task/follow-up message with in team's chat/channels/meetings as well. A lot of associates complain that they forget to follow-up because they don't have that option like they do in Outlook so they're still resisting communicating via teams. Also have the option to set a reminder to follow-up or complete a message like in Outlook.
Basically have these options available for messages/posts within teams:
Any news on the "Convert to Task Planner" button for Outlook emails? Most of our tasks come in via email.
The link given by Kubus allows you to add a Plan as a shared calendar in Outlook. While it is not as amazing as your own personal tasks being added automatically to your personal calendar, it is not complicated to add a shared calendar.

Any update on this? It has been a long time since the last one?
Outlook Import is released in 2018
It's not a real Integration, but you can have a outlook calender for every bucket.
Why can I see Planner tasks in To Do app, and I can see and work bidirectionally on tasks created in either To Do or Outlook, I can't do the same between Outlook and Planner? Makes no sense.
Anyone knows if Warren is still working on it? Or even just still working at Microsoft?

Why isn't this merged with this? https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16982440-integrate-fully-with-planner-sharepoint-and-outl
Is there a distinction I'm missing?
Where does the "Microsoft To-Do: List, Task & Reminder" app fit in with MS Teams and MS Planner?
I just evaluated Planner today. Initially I thought it is clear that Outlook, Planner and To-do need to be seamlessly integrated. This does not seem to be the case. A planner tasks of course needs to be accessible from Outlook and To-Do as well, otherwise it does not make sense to use it.
It's been six months. Any update on this.
It would make sense to have this integrate with Microsoft To-Do as well.
Any updates yet?
Not having this feature is making me look at other 3rd party solutions.
Hi, are there any further updates on this feature?
How is everyone working around the lack of this feature. I am struggling to figure out how best to add tasks, deadlines to our extended team to their calendars. Current functionality would require everyone to accept and view the Board calendars in order to be effective. IS there a better way than sending meeting invites for deadline on their calendars?
I am really looking forward to this feature. Other PM Tools outside MS already support to add flagged e-mails from Outlook to the PM tool as new task or also as comment to an existing task in the PM tool. Microsoft would be ahead if they do not only setup Outlook --> Planner, but also the other way around, so that you see in Outlook all tasks assigned to you by the planner, together with your tasks from Outlook to have one main dashboard for all your tasks, flagged emails, tasks from projects.... etc. Thank you Microsoft for taking up our ideas!

By this feature it would be much easier to implement teams in departments with older people, that are not that much familiar with IT things. A status update would be great.
