How can we improve Office 365 Groups?

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.

    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.
