    Thank you all for your feedback and votes!

    As an update, this feature is still planned and is on our backlog. It is working it’s way up our backlog, but we haven’t scheduled work for it yet. We will keep you updated and update this thread as soon as we start development!

  2. I want a "Convert to Task Planner" button for emails

    Most of our tasks come in via email, a simple button to convert it to a planner task would be imperative, otherwise it renders the planner a little bit pointless for us.

    As an update, our colleagues in To-Do have delivered the ability to create tasks directly from Outlook.com!

    To-Do has rolled out the Tasks Pane for Outlook.com’s Mail & Calendar, and is also the new Tasks for Outlook.com! With Planner’s & To-Do’s integration, we hope that To-Do will become a central hub for all of your personal tasks, and that switching to Planner to collaborate with others is seamless!

    Here’s more information on the To-Do’s task experience within Outlook: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-outlook-com-416865a1-0c4d-4e69-af6f-f98ffce3747c

    Hello all,

    As an update, we’ve paused work on this item to pursue wrapping up work on a few other high priority asks.

    We appreciate your patience and feedback on this, and hope to resume work on this soon. Please keep voting and letting us know that you’d like to see in a Planner UWP app!

    Cheers,

  4. Reporting with Planner

    Planner should provide a quick and easy way to report regularly. For example, a view of what was accomplished during a specific week would be helpful, so a date filter and a status filter may be needed. Additionally, a static snapshot would be helpful, for reporting to executives that require information push, so a way to group projects in addition to 'favorites' is needed, as well as a way to email a snapshot of the group dashboard.

    We don’t have any major updates to share at this time – Export to excel is still our first step towards delivering better reporting capabilities in Planner. You can find updates and discussion on this suggestion here:

    Hello!

    Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve just launched push notifications in our latest app update. Users should now see a push notification when a task is assigned to them. You can learn more about this feature here: https://support.office.com/article/get-notifications-about-your-tasks-and-plans-cce223d6-b0ae-43cf-a080-266e2414a859

    We’re looking to add more notification types in future updates, so let us know in the comments if there are specific types of notifications you’d like to see!

    Cheers,

    The Planner Team
