Integration with Yammer
Conversation via groups is great, be we would need a full integration with Yammer and all the social features
It would be great if there was an option to create a plan or not for Yammer groups. My organisation has many yammer groups which are communication, not task oriented. The fact that Plans are automatically created for groups leaves my planner hub really cluttered, and I can't sort the plans. If I leave the Plan, I then also unfollow the group in Yammer which is also not what I want. It's fantastic to have the integration, but it should be a "do you want to create a plan for this group" - it shouldn't happen automatically.
The ability to associate a Yammer group to to a Plan would be great - our team are looking at using Planner but it would be great to be able to ease visibility for our wider team who already use certain Yammer groups.

Planner has taken too long to get to a position to challenge Trello, which is worth its weight in gold, it works on iPad, iPhone and laptop and helps us to get things done.
MS Planner has a lot to live upto!
I would suggest doing this the other way around, make Yammer use Exchange for the actual storing of posts just like O365 Groups. This would integrate Yammer more with the O365 platform and probably do a lot on the 'legal' terms and conditions front, which is now disjoint from the O365 platform as stated here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/yammer-service-description.aspx
