Private Personal Planner (Like Personal OneDrive)
Users, by default, should get a personal, private, Planner just like their personal OneDrive. The problem is that if a user wants to use Planner, just for themselves, it creates an entire O365 Group which becomes visible in the GAL and the entire organization. It also creates mail, sharepoint site, etc... which is completely unnecessary and wastes resources (because the user already has mail and onedrive) just for a personal planner.
Based on recent announcements regarding connecting task experiences across Microsoft, please explore the new scenarios enabled in Microsoft Teams where users can explore a holistic of their personal and work tasks across Outlook, To-Do, and Planner: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-365-blog/connecting-tasks-experiences-across-microsoft-365/ba-p/1522069

Microsoft's disjointed strategy around tasks does not answer this request. While its nice to see these connected experiences, but the quality and capability varies greatly between these services. None of what is presented allows you to arrange your personal tasks in a Kanban board.
You're better off using a service like Trello that offers a Kanban board, has apps on all major platforms, and provides a more consistent experience across those apps.
As a GCC tenant, we don't have access to To-Do, so personal planner would be very helpful

I agree with all below--private planner is a must!

As nice as ToDo is, it is yet another place to look at stuff. It would make more sense to me to use the Planner framework and import tasks and flagged emails into a personal planner. Users would be able to arrange them into buckets that they want or have default ones based on the sections there are currently in ToDo. Especially as a flagged email may have something to do with a a specific personal bucket that they want to track.
As others have said, users like the Planner visual and don't understand why they can't have a private one to organise themselves. This leads to many, many groups for each person's private planner or lose privacy if we create a group to store all the individual personal planners.
It would also help with people 'getting' planner if they can use it to organise themselves and then extend out to projects or groups. A easy stepping stone to use more features of O365

Há pouco, comprei na Kalunga um Office365 Personal, o qual não consigo instalá-lo. O sistema me diz que eu tenho uma empresa, pois anteriormente era professor de inglês e usava um e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Na verdade,hoje estou desempregado e comprei um Office 365 Personal pois não preciso a assinatura do Home. O que preciso fazer para concluir a instalação do Office 365 Personal? Obrigado
To-Do is a simple list. I need a visual "Information Radiator" for Scrum and Kanban purposes.

Planner is perfect as a kanban view. To Do as I know it, works as a list, comparable to Outlook tasks. I do prefer a more visual overview of my tasks/to-do
please make a planner for private users - Microsoft to-do is nice for really simple grocery list, but not for managing privet projects in life. Microsoft lacks 'trello' for private users.
Planner and To-do are on separate platforms, which means for a mobile user to see how their personal tasks line up with group tasks for the day, they need to flick between two apps.
An option is to have tasks listed in To-Dos show up in the Planner My Tasks section
Microsoft To-Do is not the same as Planner. Planner provides an easier and more detailed task management system. Simplicity, power, and flexibility is what Planner needs. Its why I haven't moved to it from Trello.
yep. just got bitten by that.
how is that the default?
please fix it

Adding endorsement to this request for personal Plans outside of group-centric working
