Ability to add email as Planner Task
Many time - new action items come in from clients and consultants as emails. It would be great if from the web app I could convert an email to a planner task - carry the body of the email as a note - and automatiacally add any attachments as documents attached to the task.
Look at Todoist for inspiration.
it's must have for productivity

yes, Yes, YES! I am talkin ********!!!
Just like I can drag an email into calendar to create an appointment with the email text, I need an easy way to create a planner task from an email.
I HATE having to copy the email text, then open planner and manually create create the task and paste the email text.
This is a no brainer, 90% of my tasks or those I assign to a team member originate from an email.
AGREED!!!! MUST Have. Employees refusing to use Planner until this features is there.
Using Asana, as they have that and MUCH! more.
That would be a good tool.

I am currently doing this already using Microsoft Power Automate for when I flag an email. But would be nice to have a hot button in outlook as well.
Hope this will be put in development asap
We are implementing ms planner and it is disappointing that this feature is missing
I believe this is important that, It needs an "Outlook Add-in" similar to Trello, very flexible where to add an how and with some details...But i guess the thinking is to flag them and see them in consolidated under "To Do". It is kind of not sufficient if it is project related etc.

It would be very nice, preferably also with the option to send the info inside the task. Instead of only creating it

Would benefit from this also.
It would be nice to see a reply from Microsoft team...
Maybe they need using their CRM;)
Today my company works with all Microsoft ecosystem (Dev, Marketing, Ops & Business) and is crazy that Microsoft doesn't have available a simple integration with Planner.
If you own all components of the platform, you should be able to do this simple and fast.
You can start doing the same integration used by "To-do"
Agree with Mikie, I'd like to "forward" an e-mail to "attach" it to an existing task in planner in order to document the progress in planner.
one should be able to send email to the task to add comment to the task. please add this feature.
Yes an absolute must HAVE!
Why Microsoft is so slow on obvious needs to have?
YES! similar to how you can email a channel, i would like to be able to email a planner and have a new task opened with the subject and people and the body of the email as a note or attachment.
Would be a great feature especially if you could open the actual email so you could respond using email if needed.
please add this function! we need this
How is this still an open feature? This is table stakes for all other planning/kanban applications.... Seems like this would be an easy win for MS. Please add this capability.
