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.
Hi Warren, what is the status of this item? would love to see it integrated!
We need the ability to view Planner tasks together with Outlook tasks...
Seems to be a common thread. They are actively working on it. 15 months later, crickets. I will give Warren credit that he actually responded (albeit over a year ago), as UserVoice seems to be an echo chamber. This is an absolute need.
Let me join my voice to the chorus. The irony of a lack of lack of coordination between Outlook calendar, Tasks, To-do's and Planner is crushing.

It would be nice to be able to add your to do list in Teams and not just tasks assigned through Channels. Currently if you Planner app outside of a channel it will show you all tasks assigned through different Teams but you can not add your own specific items. This forces you to keep a separate list of items in OneNote or another location. Some tasks need to be assigned but either don't need to be visible to others or aren't tied to one team/channe.
How to sync MS Outlook My Tasks with MS Teams Planner My Tasks?
Layne Ainsworth commented
This is a bump.
Any progress on this feature? I agree with Jamil. Tasks are not calendar items.
Rick Sconbergg commented
I think sync'ing them is correct. With the ability to have reminders set in Teams as well as creating tasks in Teams. The lack of recurring tasks in Teams is a big issue to a full communication loop.

We need this, any news?
Jamil Haddadin commented
I think the right thing is to synch them with tasks rather than calendar.

How is the progress on this?

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.
I like the ability in Outlook tasks to delegate a task to someone and get notified when there are comments, progress, or it gets completed. Can we do this for Planner tasks? Our workaround is assigning ourselves to the task we are delegating, but then it can become unclear who actually needs to do the work.

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?!
