This feature request is working its way through the backlog queue. No new details are available yet.
We are working on the release of the Tasks application in Microsoft Teams that will aggregate data from Microsoft To-Do, Planner and Outlook with more capabilities on the way. You can see Planner data in Kanban views today, and the Tasks app will continue to support that view. In January we announced task publishing which will release with the new app. Get an overview at https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.
This is working today in the web client on Edge & Chrome. The team is actively investigating feasibility in the desktop client.
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.

The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:

- Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams
- Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook
