wunderlist, planner and outlook tasks should all live in the same world
Wunderlist, Planner and Outlook tasks should all be part of the same app universe and be easily movable and interchangeable weather the user is using the free Wunderlist, a paid Office 365 subscription or Outlook though a classic Office license (non subscription model).
why so many overlapping task management apps from Microsoft?
From the user perspective one can only see advantages in the integration.
I also find out about this, hoping to find the best answer!

After reading through 4 or 5 pages of ideas here I see that I’m not the only person wishing I had ONE place to go to see MY tasks, calendar events and in general, things I have to do today, tomorrow, this week or this month. In the current disjointed environment the first task I have each morning is to trudge through all my calendars, planners, emails and sticky notes to plan my workday.

Note that we need to add To-Do to the list of ever growing Microsoft applications that allow users to store tasks. Would be great to have each task available across all different respective apps, or have some sort of cohesion in the task management app space!
It seems like To-Do has the Outlook task integration down.

I totally agree, to many places to stores tasks in MS products: SharePoint, Outlook, OneNote, Planner, DCRM, I am probably forgiving some.
In the end we're still ending up with Excel because we know where we store the file and we can make basic reporting.
Please unify all tasks into one stream.
Don't be afraid to change users abits (for the best).

Wunderlist, Planner and Outlook tasks and also TFS Tasks. This all should be linked to each other or a single app to perform this activity. Microsoft is confusing everyone to make a decision on what to use when.

Microsoft is heading in the right direction... this would be a great addition, a single Task stream for each user, integrated into all the productivity tools.
Also I can only agree. It might be that every app has it's own advantages and strengths but with the apparent power of Microsoft it should be easy to combine the strenght of each app into one super wunderfull task-planner app that is integretable with all the other MS (Office365) applications.
Very well said. Our company doesn't know which one to use, Outlook Tasks or Planner. Just have one Task managing feature that is integrated to everything. I like the look of Planner, but the convenience of having Tasks right from Outlook.

If you could opt to swap out all Tasks from Sharepoint and Tasks in Dynamics CRM Online to be replaced with Planner Tasks that would be the perfect storm - one place for all Task Management to surface for the user and to allow cross sectional views for teams working across items.
this right here is the comment to end all comments on this feedback forum! please stop disjointing all your applications Microsoft! sort your SH*t out please.....too many task applications. you need to make a hub to rule them all or just make one nice system that works across all. I thought this was wunderlist!? its so good but needs some of this 'planner' love and should replace 'tasks' in outlook!
