Integrate Planner Tasks to Sharepoint Tasks
Integrate Planner Tasks to Sharepoint Tasks
One centralized task list (cfr Task aggregation in SP2013) would be of great value.
It would help users to retrieve all open tasks (Outlook tasks, SharePoint tasks, Planner tasks).
I would love the ability to write a workflow from a SP list to be able to create a planner task -> or the ability to create a planner task and to create a workflow that then creates a sharepoint list item with the same Planner information. OR really just any link, like the ability to create a look up field that links the SP list item to the Planner item
I's love to be able to use Planner to see the tasks assigned in SharePoint tasks and Outlook tasks, then group them by plan/bucket in Planner.
Even better if I could update them in Planner and for that to cascade to the SharePoint or Outlook tasks.
Rather than integrating Planner with the SharePoint tasks list, I'd prefer to have a way of handling your planner tasks from SharePoint. Like a webpart for the new site experience. Since the aggregated task list on your MySite was hidden/removed, SharePoint tasks are basically useless.

Having Planner integrated within SharePoint makes perfect sense. It will allow for a more intuitive user experience, where users have a single point of entry to manage a project/activities with associated announcements, news, files, events, contacts, etc - which can all be presented using a fit for purpose site template. I'd even go as far as replacing the existing Tasks functionality within SharePoint with Planner altogether, but only if it can support the ability to add user-defined columns (perhaps across a Planner-specific content type). This to me would be the best of both worlds, allowing flexibility while improving the overall user experience. This would/could allow for a migration path as well, with existing Tasks migrating from SharePoint Tasks to Planner tasks.

In general I would like better integration between SharePoint sites and Planner. Team and Project Sites in SharePoint create "hubs" for physical and virtual teams in our organisation. Being able to associate plan(s) with sites enhances the idea considerably.
Yes we nenes this integración ASAP please.

I would like the ability to ADD A TASK to a bucket when an item in created or modified in a share point list - either via workflow/Flow or nintex workflow.
Use case - we add new work items into a custom list for BA's. these work items are currently tracked via sharepoint. But, we would like the ability to use Planner and assign the "task" into the NEW WORK bucket on a WORK PLAN we have set up in planner. The workflow should move certain details like :
The BA can then use planner to add comments etc and we can track work on the dashbaord.
Please integrate Planner into SharePoint Tasks, will be very very helpful.
Please integrate Planner plans into SharePoint sites!!!!

What prompted me to search for integrating Planner tasks with SharePoint was that I'm in the process of setting up a project-specific SharePoint site, but wanted to track some activities visually in Planner. I noticed it created a new "Group", which also created a new "SharePoint" site. So now I have two sites for the same project. We are still learning and trying to figure out the best approach to 365 and how everything ties together. I see this being really confusing to the end users.
I would be content with adding time tracking to Planner at this point. We have this project task management tool, but it doesn't actually integrate with the other places we should track project tasks (project online, SharePoint) or track time spent.

yes we need this!!!
Probably the best is to provide a migration from SP takslist to Planner, and allow Planner to be integrated in the new SharePoint team site
hope the ability to have MS planner as a webpart in SharePoint sites becomes a reality.

Would love to have the Planner view on regular SharePoint tasks list if possible.

Yes, please offer some way to integrate plans into SharePoint sites. I can see separate use-cases for planner and a more structure tasks list in SharePoint, but there is no in between right now. This becomes problematic for people who manage multiple projects across both platforms.
Ideally, a task list (with dependencies, sub tasks, multiple assignments, etc) should be able to sync to tasks. Tasks added should sync to SharePoint lists. Likewise progress should sync across both platforms.
I also think attachments and one note notebooks should have the option to go to a SP site instead of a group.
and likewise integrate SharePoint tasks to MS Planner
