Move planner tasks to another team
We have created a planner tab in most of our teams. Sometimes a task on the plannerboard has to be moved to another team (e.g. next step on a task has to be executed by a different team), which now has to be done by deleting the task in the original team and adding one in the other team with copying data from the original task.
Possible solution: when editing a task it displays the teamname and bucketname in the left top. When you click on the name you can select a different team (only teams you are subscribed to), select a bucket within that team and optional select a member to assign the task to and click on a move button
Good news, this feature is partially done. :)
Planner tasks can now be copied to other plans. To copy a task, click on the “…” menu on the task. From there, you can select a different plan to copy the task to.

We really need this now...

Needed ability immediately considering the huge number of classes being taught by teachers.
it feels like a LOT of features like this on planner are being deliberately help back?? I assume to push MS project, talk about shooting yourself in the foot at a time like this.
As a teacher why can't I have a team with all the assignments set up for each year group then copy the team (with assignments) for new teams for each class within the year?
eg Y7 Computing as initial team with all assignments and make new teams from it like
Y7 Computing Class A
Y7 Computing Class B
Y7 Computing Class C
Y7 Computing Class D
I want to make a Template Team that is duplicated for each project started in our office. WIthin each team I want each group to have an individual planner with their tasks pre-loaded.
When I create a new team, the planner tab is copied over with the edited name, but no content/taks are loaded within the planner tab. I need to 'activate' it then it starts out blank again.
Please make this function work.
This is HUGE.
Ultimately i'd like to make a script that pulls the tasks from each group compiles it per team/project and compiles all the teams to determine workload and status of all current projects within the organization.
It would be helpful to have export to excel options witihn the app rather than the web browser also.
Please! This is an absolutely necessary feature!

You haven't done this from 2017. This is ridiculous ! Agreed to other's this feature is crucial
Hello, I had to move-dragged 1 planner to another teams, but so far I am not able to figure out how to do it?, Could you explain if that´s possible?
Sharing the business need to add ability to move tasks between teams. Voting for this feature to be enabled.
This should be a feature available for moving from team-team as well as channel to channel. Plan to plan is not very useful.
Moving this across teams is very critical. You should make this top priority.
Voting to have this resolved as well. Agree with @Mike in Cairns that the functionality to move from one Team to another is crucial

Hey @Warren - This is typical of MS not addressing what the users want/need/ask for.
"Good news, this feature is partially done. :) Planner tasks can now be copied to other plans. To copy a task, click on the “…” menu on the task. From there, you can select a different plan to copy the task to."
How does this address the requirement to MOVE PLAN TO ANOTHER TEAM.

reading this thread and i share the frustration.
even if i could save a planner tab i've created as a template, i don't want to re-type the tasks each time, but i can live with having to assign the tasks to individuals every time until a fix is found.
just created multiple plans with a range of tasks thinking "of course i can copy and paste these" and i can't
and when you copy a Plan in share point, it doesn't show up in teams, and if it does, it doesn't have the tasks
potentially a great tool here, it just needs finished
I am struggling to copy a basic planner template with about 50 tasks to various channels within the same team. I do not want to copy one at a time every time we have a new project that requires us to start from scratch. I tried copying the whole plan from the web view but it just creates a copy with no way to link back to the channel. Any solutions?
It is hard to believe this was not a user story at some point during development. Dissapointed
yes, strongly endorse the development of this functionality.
absolutely necessary feature
I am looking forward to have the option to move tasks from one plan to another plan in a DIFFERENT TEAM. This is a logical business need.
It is not suffcient that I am able to move a task from one plan to another plan INSIDE the same team (group).... I need to be able to move / copy / template it ACROSS different teams.
