Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards.
Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also copy or move them to different Plans/Boards that you are a member of.
Thank you for your feedback! We’ve improved the ‘Copy task’ dialogue so you can chose a different plan to send a copy of a task to! We’ll be exploring and expanding the ways in which you and your team can organize work in Planner, and hope this will be a helpful step forward.
Here’s an article to learn more about this feature: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=872349

It is definitely progress to have a 'copy' feature to another plan but the title of the improvement request is to to "Move" between plans. A major gap is all of the comments that show the history of the updates to the task do not copy so that the copy in the new location is incomplete causing the need to keep the same task in the old location and link to it somehow to retain the history. Also, attachments / links not moving also creates alot of manual work to truly "Move" the task to a different plan. I agree that this item should not be considered "Completed" as of yet.
OK, we have this now. Thanks.
And now we want more:
1) Move of buckets between plans
2) Drag and drop for both tasks and buckets.
Looking forward to this.

Honestly, I was hoping to move the task dragging and dropping, instead of copying and deleting the previous one.
Although it is a significant improvement, I believe we can't say the requested feature is completed.
Thank you! I see you can't copy labels and assignments, and that makes sense, because they might not be standard. It seems that attachments should be possible, but I don't use them much, so no worries.
Attachments don't go along with the copy? Without them the new copy feature has minimal use.
It's great this feature has been implemented, but would ask they you allow attachments to be copied
We need this desperately.
yip - I agree - make it happen team

Yes pleas enable this feature
Yes pleas enable this feature
I concur, this is a must!
Really important feature. Please implement.
Looking forward to this update!
Agree!!!!!!!!!!! We would use it.
Agree, need the ability to move or copy tasks to another planner board :)
+1 to duplicating tasks to other boards especially to those shared with other users. I have a shared task board with me and my manager. I would like to be able to post various individual tasks on my personal boards to my manager.
Can we add 2 fields to a task - one for estimated time required (hours or days) and two for actual time spent. The bigger one is estimated time required - for identifying trends in resource needs.....on a weekly or monthly basis it would be good to see the total estimated hours to see if it is trending up, down or is static.

As likely mentioned. My scenario is that I would like to have multiple planning boards for projects/enhancements and be able to move them into one work in progress board. This is a very basic feature for any other planning tool, see Trello, Version One, Rally, JIRA, etc.

+1, the copy of tasks between is a basic feature on kanban-like apps, as in projects plans are sprints or period of the work process. Copying task from plan to plan allow us to move those which weren't finished in that time-lap to the new plan representing the next time-lap.
