Unique ID for each Planner task
In order to share or search a specific task please make a unique id available for copy from a task. Directing a user to a task Comment such as with saying "that task I sent you just now" isn't exactly optimal. I'll call it out now that folks will be using Planner as a ticketing system. I do.
We also need some unique Ticket IDs in our development process e.g. to name git-commits

Agree, really need to see some sort of ID next to each task as a reference field.

A Unique ID that is human readable / shareable would be required before I could truly consider using Planner to replace our existing task tacking software. I am very new to Planner but I might not be here long without this feature.
A link with the Unique ID would also be helpful.
More helpful (for my needs):
- Where CHL is a Channel identifier
- Where 123 is the Unique ID for the task in that Plan / Channel, change it if the task is moved to another Plan.
Does anyone from Microsoft even read these feedback suggestions? There really should be a way to id these tasks, especially when you start getting into hundreds of them in a bucket. You also want an easy way to refer to these tasks in your other systems. I guess it will be another 2 years before someone bumps this again and we will be in 2021 still without this feaure...
I agree, ticket IDs. Would be great!
Well Unique ID is required to track which task has been completed which werent .To log somewhere we need task ID
