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!

We’d love to hear your thoughts on these two new features! Feel free to comment below, send us a smile through the O365 menu (select the question mark icon, click ‘feedback’, then include the word “Planner”), or tweet using #MicrosoftPlanner.
The Planner Team
The integration of the planner with the calendar was announced in the Office 365 Update for November 2017, but in my planner the calendar does not appear on the menu. What is the plan? How do I enable this option?
Nic Souris commented
It seems you can go in one direction using Flow, but not in the other. I can create a flow that allows creation of a Planner task to a specific Plan from an Outlook task, but I cannot create an Outlook task when a Planner task is created. I can create an Outlook event when a Planner task is created and if I have dates on my task, that might be enough. Calendar is already integrated into Teams so this does not seem to be a big jump for Office365

In this video about the November release, it looks like point 2 from above (schedule view) should be available now, but I can't see it...
Any ETA? Seems like a minimal requirement for planner tbh, how did you launch planner without outlook integration? It's the one thing employees look at all the time.

1. Support viewing Planner Tasks on an Outlook Calendar
Do you mean onpremise Exchange / Outlook? or =365 Outlook.

Why is this taking so long... It is a key feature that needs to be there to make Planner worth using.

What is taking so long to make this feature work? Nearly everyone who has tasks on a deadline wants to be able to view/share them on Outlook calendar. How was this not built in from day one?
Hayley Miller commented
Is there a timeline for release of this feature? I get many questions about when this will become available.

A must have for any kanban system. I look forward for this. Until you develop the first item, is there any hack we can use?
Miles Exner commented
Can't wait for this. Thank you developers.
Could the Planner Team provide an expected for launching this new feature?
Any due date expected to communicate ?
Would love to know some more details about when this plans to launch; this would be very helpful for a project my organization is about to launch.
Planner Team- Do you have any updates on this?
Doesn't anyone else have an issue with that it's not possible to edit or delete comments in planner tasks or Microsoft teams? Can all of you please go and vote for that feedback. Sorry for posting this here but this is really starting to affect our work.

Hi, any idea when this will start working? It would be super helpful if we can integrate planner tasks with outlook calendar. why doesn't this already work??
Is there any idea when this functionality will debut?
seria extramente útil se as atividades do planner estivesse vinculada ao calendário e desse para adicionar lembretes das atividades
