Create Planner tabs within Private Channels
We have just started using Private Channels, which is great as our team has sub teams within it and this way we can have private discussions, without creating multiple teams.
What we'd also like to do is create Planner Plans within the Private Channels that are only accessible to those within the Private Channel. Is this on the roadmap?
Thank you for your feedback. The team has this request under review. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

Please enable planner for private channels. This will make the Private channels way more useful

Please enable planner for private channels, this is one of the most important features required by us at Piramal. We won't be able to go ahead with a company wide launch for Teams if this feature is not enabled
Erin Hope commented
Definitely need this. Prevents me from using the private channel feature. In my org, I don't have permissions to create new teams, but I can create channels within the team. The lack of this feature puts an additional bureaucratic barrier for me in creating appropriate space for our work that contains sensitive content.
Need this now
Not sure why this isn't a standard feature? It's been hard trying to get my users to transition off Trello due to all of these limitations!! Please enable ASAP!
We are in need of this feature as well. Adding the Planner feature within a Private Channel would be truly efficient in the way our team works.

Please add this feature! I'm really trying to utilize Teams as a planning/organizing tool. But, this is a big limitation.
Debbie Jones commented
Agree. This will make the Private channels way more useful
Rachel Coulter commented
Would be tremendously helpful to be able to add planner to a private channel!
Mark Kantor commented
Sooner than ASAP, if possible.
Edgar Tapia commented
Please add this ASAP. Thank you in advance! Great Job by the way!
I was excited to create a private channel to replace a Team. However, the only way to create a Planner for the new channel is to create a new Group, effectively negating the Team deletion! I can't believe there is NO way to integrate a To Do / Task list in with private channels!!!!
Can't believe this isn't incorporated by default.
to have full functionality we need app Planner (the most useful one) in private channels
I too need this. I also need an update on when this will be available.
I did see the following in documentation from December 13 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/private-channels#what-you-need-to-know-about-private-channels):
Currently, private channels support connectors and tabs (except Stream, Planner, and Forms). We're working on full apps support for private channels, including messaging extensions and bots.
I'm just looking for a bit more information regarding what that may mean. January? February? Q1? Q2?
Can any one from MS give me an estimate?
Wallace Henry commented
I think this is a great idea!
Stuart Yates commented
Agree, this would be very useful
The private Teams should have the same functionality as the larger team... right? why would you restrict some tools?
Matthias Kabel commented
would be a great Feature. But These planners should be displayed in the main Team as well.
Or there should be the channel as a category
