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.
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.

Came here to ask for this! I find myself wishing I could rt click and have the message added to my outlook tasks list.

Please ... Allow planner, To-Do, Outlook and Teams to share the same tasks, sync them correctly across all clients (no bugs) so that we can use any or all of the software apps and be able to actively create and manage all our tasks. it is messy and buggy at the moment.
Thank you very much.

Any news on this?

Hey Warren! Can you give us any hope or update on how this has progressed.
Also, if you delete a task in planner, you should be able to undo that action / recover it.
You have been working on it for quite some time now! Any update on this?
Status?! We needed!!
Can we please get a progress update?
Planner is great to organize projects and assigning tasks to users.
However if you have multiple planners going on, it's incredibly hard to know what tasks have been assigned to you unless you go to the particular planner.
It would be great if in Teams, you could overview all tasks assigned to you at a glance. Clicking on each task would open that task's particular details without jumping into the planner, in order to maximize productivity and review outstanding tasks to be worked on.
