Bulk task creation in planner.
It should be possible to mass-create tasks in planner. When you manage ad-hoc team tasks on a daily basis- it's manageable.
But when you'd like to plan some work over a longer period of time and have a lot of tasks to assign- it's not suitable to do that one by one.
If you take SharePoint- it's possible to create a list of tasks by copying them from excel (task list can be edited in 'excel-like' mode). Something similar should be available in Teams to really take advantage of the planner functionality.

In Asana, if you copy a series of lines from Excel, Word, etc. the line breaks create the next task. Then it's all copy/pasta.

You can use Microsoft Form + Flow to create tasks and assign them to people and put them into appropriate buckets. Currently I dont believe you can auto attach items and create checklists for them.
Agree, we should be able to "bulk" load tasks
I need to be able to assign a number of tasks in a planner for a project team to one person, it is taking a frustratingly long time to do this individually.
Couldn't agree more - I've just started using planner and I'm quite annoyed I can't create tasks in bulk.
