Multiple Boards Per Plan
It'd be really nice to be able to add and manage multiple boards for a given plan. I'm thinking different boards for different work streams, backlog boards, building out boards for different sprints, etc.
I think this fits better into the 1-to-1 Group-to-Plan setup that you've already built than the multiple plans per group request, though that would be a work around for this kind of thing if you can move tasks between plans.
Multiple boards would be necessary to have different view on the tasks:

Multiple Boards per plan or group is essential. Why a different group for every board, or even a different group necessary for every plan?
This would be essential. Experience should be consistent with that of MS teams.

I wholeheartedly agree with the other commenters. We're creating groups for each client. Unfortunately, with multiple projects running at the same time for a client, our boards get a bit messy. While it makes a lot of sense to have separate groups for some projects, it greatly expands the number of channels we have to watch.
While the current setup makes the most sense in organizations with clean divisions between teams and projects, it doesn't jive as well in a small group with every person sharing a role in every project. Likewise, I see this posing a bigger challenge when we are able to invite our customers to participate in the boards since we work with small companies where each employee wears many hats.

I was surprised to see this feature missing. When I tried to create a new board, Office 365 created a new Group. That made zero sense to me. I didn't want a new group. I needed a new task board to further organize tasks within my existing group.
This is how Trello works. This is how Planner should work. Groups -> Boards -> Tasks. Boards do not equal Groups, yet that is how Planner works currently and that simply doesn't work at all for us.

This would be really helpful for us. If a plan is going to be the same as an O365 group then we would need to have multiple boards as the way we use groups doesn't map to a single project per group.
