Thanks for this request. We are rolling out the links to planner boards for groups in Outlook desktop from the group card, so that should help get to the planner task list.
This request seems to be asking for the Outlook desktop tasks list to also show planner tasks. Can you help us understand the use cases and details on the actions you expect to perform with planner tasks in Outlook?
There needs to be a way to have all tasks from all locations appear in Outlook Desktop. Plus the ability to filter which tasks come from where, such as planner tasks and their corresponding buckets and individual outlook tasks, all in the same view.Sami commented
I think the tasks button should be removed from the app launcher as well as outlook and replaced completely with Planner.
