Add or Integrate Planner Tasks with a Calendar
Calendar integration. Add tasks and their status on a calendar.
Thank you again for your feedback and patience. We’re happy to announce that the schedule view of tasks is fully implemented and the iCalendar format feed is coming soon! Head over to tasks.office.com to check it out!

Hi is there a projected date for this to happen anytime soon?? This will help my team immensely. We are waiting on any feedback at all. But giving up hope soon since we haven't heard much since last year April.
Please give us an update! Planner is great but still really useless since you can't see it in you calender. When, where, how......?
Don Hiles commented
This will make Planner much more powerful. Please move with all due haste please

I also vote for calendar integration. Planner has the capability of being a go to, over Trello and others, with this added feature, one step closer! Thanks.
The calendar integration should be the same calendar as created by the Outlook/Exchange Group. This transparent integration across MS products should be a standard
Hi Planner Team,
Is it possible to get a 2018 update on the progress.
David Cooper commented
can we ensure that the dates are in country specific format. Our users are getting confused as it is only showing dates in US format.
Natalie Loben commented
PLease do this, it would make a HUGE difference
Nick Cates commented
Planner tasks, Outlook Tasks, SharePoint Tasks should all be one with Calendar.

Is there any update on this? I've been asked to stop using Asana by my employer and use O365 Planner by my employer, as they feel it's more 'secure'
The systems are very similar, but I am missing the calendar view and finding the lists just bamboozling when I've been so used to clicking on my calendar and seeing the tasks to be completed that day.
Please update and/or push this out ASAP to make it more user friendly. Thanks
I need this, please add it soon
Joao Santos commented
are there any news ? a date for release ? thank you !
I appreciate the update from the end of November. Is there an rta
Amanda Majusiak commented
I second all of these! as a small volunteer nonprofit its hard to keep those less tech savvy on target! Having the ability to send notifications and sync planner items assigned would be huge! Im now worried this app may be a fail for us!
-- Calendar Integration
-- Email notification for tasks
-- Due Date Notification
-- outlook Add in to add planner tasks
-- External User access (Guest)

It would make more sense if Planner tasks were integrated with Outlook Tasks which can be in-turn displayed in Outlook Calendar. In addition, Planner Tasks could integrate with SharePoint Tasks and Project Tasks, all of which integrate with Outlook Tasks and Calendar.
We will then be one step closer to having Outlook Tasks and Calendar integrated properly in Teams.

could we have a release date?
Note that App4.pro works good as an ad-in... it integrates quite well.
Paul Lawton commented
Asana just announced improvements to their EXISTING calendar.
Planner doesn't have one.
Could have a great future, but not until it catches up a bit.
Just found out that the reason this is going SO slowly is obvious politics between MS Dev team.
Some MS divisions rather want us to buy Project Online @ $55 pupm !!!
@ Planner Team,
Get this done, and we will have a really workable CRM solution in Outlook 2016.
We are SO close, and the last piece of the puzzle is Planner integration.
