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.
Do you have some News to this Task?
It would be great if Cortana could add more detail to tasks that she creates, even a link to the original email!

Yay! I have been waiting for Tasks to integrate with the Calendar! It's the missing link!

I just delegated a task to a colleauge and instructed her that she could find her tasks in Outlook, but I guess not. I wonder why? It seems logic to me.
Planning the day/the week using Outlook Tasks & Calender is the key to individual effectivity (= doing the right things).
For planning efficiently task from outlook, planner AND PROJECT need to be hold together at one place (e.g. tasks in teams) and synchronized to tasks in outlook.
@Alex: Will integrating tasks from project be part of your new Tasks app?
it would be great if the attachments from Outlook were available in Teams Tasks
It will be very useful to have TEAMS tasks (with tasks' checklist) integrated in the MS Outlook calendar and be able to track checklist progress directly there.

As Teams Planner becomes the center for Team activity planning and assignment, the need to sync this with Outlook is becomming more and more urgent. People will not remember to check in several different places when they schedule their work week.
Microsoft - You need to get this sorted out.
Francesco Morsillo commented
There should be the possibility to create a meeting from a task in order to allocate on Outlook Calendar the time to effectively work on that task.
What's the progress on that?
Microsoft are you any closer to sorting this?
Oh my goodness, I'm shocked this functionality is not sorted. I've set up some Flows both ways, but it's really just copy and paste and does not intelligently sync changes. Please tell me this will launch soon?
Hi, I echo everyone's comments below.
Our office would love it if Outlook tasks would sync with Teams/Planner tasks.
Has this been developing since April of 2020? What is the status?

Is microsoft any closer to making these tasks appear in users outlook tasks as well as in planner? It would really be useful to our team members to be able to see in their Outlook what has been assigned to them. Thanks

Please make it that the schedule task in TEAMS channel when allocated to a person is added to their calendar in TEAMS/Outlook not just planner

Please integrate Planner Tasks with Outlook Tasks!! This seems like a no-brainer. Integration with Outlook Calendar is ok, but not helpful in prioritizing day to day work.
Also, Planner Tasks DO APPEAR in MS To-Do, but that doesn't sync with Outlook, like all the other tasks in To-Do.

I agree, having the task appear on the assignee's calendar automatically would be a huge bonus. or sent as a calendar invite.
Can we have outlook task attachments appear in Teams planner tasks?
