Add or Integrate Planner Tasks with a Calendar
Calendar integration. Add tasks and their status on a calendar.
We’ve started development on the first item:
1. Support viewing Planner Tasks on an Outlook Calendar
We will add the ability to turn on an iCalendar feed (.ics feed) for the “My Tasks” view and for each Plan. You can subscribe to this feed in Outlook to see Planner tasks in context with your other events.
We expect to start work on the second item soon:
2. Create a Calendar/Schedule visualization
We’ll create a new view that allows you to easily view and edit tasks in the context of a calendar.
when can we test it?

Schedule visualization would be great. Now planning all tasks in a selfcreated excel timeline.
It seems to work now. If you add an event on outlook calendar, and assign as calendar type the one of the group plan it appears on the calendar view. However as the plan owner, if you create an event on the calendar, it will appear twice in the outlook calendar (in the regular calendar and in the group calendar)
when this comes out i can get more users away from asana and onto planner
So anxious! Can't wait !! =D

hi Any idea when this is happening?

I'm hoping this 'schedule view' is something along the lines of what other requests are calling for:
Muy necesaria esta opcion
Thanks for the update. Eager to test this when you have something ready for testing.

Hi Team !
Curious if there is any update on this? Would love this functionality. Looking to use Planner for our On-Boarding.
Its been over a year. Any updates?
From a UX perspective, I would look at the top 3 or 4 most popular (not most sales, but highest rated) project software applications and see what they have in common. If they are a mature enough version, then they would have done the hard work of researching what is popular and what is not.
If you want Planner to be a light project planning tool, then look beyond these forums. Most people here are power users, which is not the core Office demographics (I say this as a MCT).
adding our support for the integration of the dates set in the Planner with the Calendar created through Planner.

It would be great to actually have the option to add a reminder or an alert to the Planner tasks in Outlook.
Gerry Morley commented
Integrating planner tasks with the Outlook calendar first should require that planner tasks will need to have a time field for start time and due date time. This is crucial functionality for the calendar integration to work correctly.
Audrey McNeil commented
When can we expect to be able to use those two main items your working on?
Brett Abraham commented
This is a key feature my organization is looking for; We would like to make Planner our primary project planning tool, but it feels severely lacking without this functionality.
Any update on the template request???? We write in this thread because NOONE give feedback in the correct thread about the template request since Jenuary 2016 !!!
Is there a time frame on the roll out of this feature?
Lauren Lanier commented
One of my coworkers contacted Microsoft Support about calendar integration, and they told him that there was no information on when this feature might be added. Microsoft said to check the Office 365 Roadmap for updates, currently none of these features are on the Roadmap. They recommended to look into third-party add-ons for this additional functionality. The add-ons provide basic calendar integration, but it is solely housed through Outlook and not Planner.
