Guest Access to see Planner Tasks
Hello, I have a question about MS Teams Guest Access. Is there any working on Guest acces to login-sign in MS teams planner or tasks?
Guest Accounts can see chat, folders etc but can not open planner tasks ?
Great news! This feature request is being worked upon by the Planner team!
Expect an update soon.
The lack of guest access is preventing us from moving to Planner across the board. We are still patching together a process in order to get around this limitation for guest access. Would like for Planner to add this capability, so we don't have to move on to other solutions. Any update on progress from Microsoft?

Would really like this feature.
"Expect an update soon" - How soon is soon?

As a consulting company we often work with guests in Teams. This feature is a MUST to work with Teams!
What does "soon" mean?
If it takes another month to fix this issue, we feel forced to use another collaboration tool :((
Bernd Gewehr commented
Soon does sound good. Anything more specific available?

Any update with the Guess Planner access for IOS? I have Android and see that it works under setting I can switch to my guest account but most of my team have IOS and we do not see this function at all. Any update?
As a Guest I can use Planner in browser Teams environment, but via mobile (iOS: Teams app or via Planner app) I can't acces the Plans where I'm in as a Guest.

Is there any update for this? I had guests view planner in the past but they are now getting an oops message
Any updates to this? I'm a guest and unable to view Planner activities, tasks etc.
What is the status for guest access for Planner functions on iOS?
@warren - wondering status on this one.
any updates? @warren
i'm just another Company with the same trouble: guests to Planner can't neither create nor read comments. Please Admin Team sort it out asap! Thank you.
Guest need to be able to see comments in Planner.
This works for me as of 6/8/2018. However external users cannot add comments, and cannot upload files from their computer.

Really need this to work. Working with an external vendor and need to use Planner. They can see everything but comments on the Tasks. Also not getting notifications.

With a small trick it is working already. If you are in Teams and go as Guest to the tab with Planner. Could be you see nothing..but if you click on the rights site and open the plan in the Planner Web App, then you will see the plan and the tasks.
Afterwords you will see the tasks in Teams as well. Seems to be an authentification issue.

Is there a date when this is fixed? There was a published lauch date under April 2018. This was last month :)
Please allow the guest access on the planner on teams.
Glad to see that I'm not the only one needing this so urgently. Need trusted external people to access our Team. They have Microsoft 365 accounts so it should be feasible.
