Create a helpdesk ticketing system within Office 365
We are currently using Office 365 Planner but it lacks capabilities for a ticketing system - cannot issue trouble tickets, issue categorisation and reporting, allow employees to log their own tickets, etc. How about creating a Helpdesk Ticketing System within Office 365?
+1 - This would be really useful!
why, because we end up buying other solutions just to integrate with outlook. All the building blocks are there with O365 and it provides the end to end life cycle of IT

+1 please we have a few months to finalise the move but desperately seeking a better integrated ticketing system to Office365 than we currently have.

Try SteadyPoint Helpdesk, it enables your support teams to build problem catalog, choose their preferred routing algorithm and track issues. you can create service requests from the portal or via email using Microsoft Flow. it also provide Tickets, Services Requests and performance reporting.
take a look at missiveapp.com this is how outlook teams integration should work. Fundamental!
Outlook groups would be the perfect scenario for this. eg setup a group as firstname.lastname@example.org etc. However team chat around inbound support emails would be essential.

This should be a nobrainer for microsoft. The vast majority of the functionality required is *already* built into Outlook and Planner.
Outlook already has the messaging ability; custom fields can be added there, and the ability to assign tasks. Planner could show the tickets in a Kanban view.
What's missing is the ability to assign/track ticket ids, and to group messages, tasks, etc against a tickets.
Please do this Microsoft.
YES seems like a no brainer
Last I checked, this ticketing is already available. Check out Powerapps, there is even a ticketing system template.
@JonathanBlundell was wondering if you could please assist with some info around the Helpdesk Ticketing system that you built. Am very interested to find out more and chat about how you built it. I can be reached on email@example.com - thanks so much.
Imagine a ticketing system integrated with Office365(emails, Teams, Planner, etc) how easy and seamless would that be.
User can submit ticket through email, teams, emails to teams channel.
Agents can manage the ticket from the new software, and interact from other software as well.
Up Up UP.

New to Office 365?
This is your Office 365 home page, where you can see and access all of your Office 365 apps. If it's empty, it could be that your user licence was very recently assigned to you. Wait ten minutes and refresh this page. If you still can't see any apps, contact your IT department. They can help you get up and running.
This should be using to do with all the back end infrastructure between O365 Groups, Power BI, Planner etc.

We really need this. For Microsoft, it would be easy to build and very easy way to make their customer happier if they can do it quickly.
There are many be many hundreds of HelpDesk service provider but for small to mid size companies look for something within one ecosystem.
