Yes, will be great to have the Planner tasks with its start and end time reflecting in the outlook calendar, even if I have to use a flow to get it there. You started July - when will you be done?
We are all looking for when this feature update will be posted. Is there a timeline fix/update that we can please tell our teams? Thanks!
Planner Team. I'm really pumped about your product but I'm having a hard time trying to convince my staff that this is the direction to go because there are several features that are missing. We have been waiting a long time for this product to mature and with features like:
-- Calendar Integration
-- Email notification for tasks
-- Due Date Notification
-- outlook Add in to add planner tasks
-- External User access
This would help us a great deal move towards Planner.
@admin: Can you, please, give as an update regarding this feature?
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.

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?
