I agree that this would be a valuable feature.
I agree with others, that such a short character limit with a Planner tasks greatly reduces it's viability as a true group organizational management tool.
I agree that this would be very helpful!
As every plan is an Office 365 group, you can just browse through the groups/plans directly in Microsoft Planner.
I agree that this makes sense. Planner is a kind of hub of sorts, for the team, but even more naturally, and successfully, within Teams, but Outlook is my personal hub for all of the things I'm responsible for. So what you're suggesting as a solution doesn't really fit the need.
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?
I use Outlook Tasks religiously to manage everything I'm working on, big and small. If a task is assigned to me in Planner I would love for it to show up in my list of Tasks in Outlook, and create a link as well, so that if I click it off in Outlook as being completed, it will be marked completed in Planner as well. Also, if notes are added in Outlook, they would be added to the task in Planner, and vice versa. In addition, a link in the Outlook task that would open the task in Planner would be terrific. Office 365 is all about integration for the sake of collaboration, and I would suggest it's also about learning to think of the various apps as parts of a whole, not separate. This is one of the big selling features for Office 365. Why do I use all MS Office apps, because they integrate well together. The more they integrate, the more likely I am to stick to only Office tools. Planner added the ability to show your Planner tasks on your outlook calendar, so why not go one step further, and even more appropriately, add them to your Outlook Tasks.
