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.

Are there any plans to have this be automatic. I see you can do this with Microsoft flow, but its on a per user basis and each user would have to have the flow on in their system. It would be much better if I could turn this on from the plan settings to have it automatically show up in peoples outlook tasks.
I have been researching and when reviewing this thread, I am not surprised that in 2 years MS still has not integrated a 'task' between their own applications. Seemingly such a simple thing. Real hindrance to adopting an integrated (because its not) MS platform.
Looking for direct sync not just calendar feed. I use tasks to prioritize floating tasks which may not have a set date. Having to arbitrarily set dates just to make them visible in outlook undermines the value of being up to see the unmovable chunks of time in my work day and be able to take from the "top of the pile" when I have time that hasn't been booked out.

When will this be live?

Can you please help us integrate this. Thanks.
Very quiet from MS on this one - where is it at please?!
Tasks, To-Do, Outlook tasks, isn't it getting out of hand? Why so many competing teams internally creating this mess?
Is this function already possible?

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.
