I want a "Convert to Task Planner" button for emails
Most of our tasks come in via email, a simple button to convert it to a planner task would be imperative, otherwise it renders the planner a little bit pointless for us.
As an update, our colleagues in To-Do have delivered the ability to create tasks directly from Outlook.com!
To-Do has rolled out the Tasks Pane for Outlook.com’s Mail & Calendar, and is also the new Tasks for Outlook.com! With Planner’s & To-Do’s integration, we hope that To-Do will become a central hub for all of your personal tasks, and that switching to Planner to collaborate with others is seamless!
Here’s more information on the To-Do’s task experience within Outlook: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-outlook-com-416865a1-0c4d-4e69-af6f-f98ffce3747c

It must be a linked to email, not just copy text from email to create Task.
It very important. As well it must be a linked to email, not just copy text from email to create Task. I want always have possibility go fast from task to that email and answer.

I completely agree with that integration, so many tasks come to us via email and a bridge with Planner would be perfect.
The functionality would be complete when Planner could export the tasks to a excel to let us to create statistics of our Planner tasks.

I agree! An integration between outlook and Planner is a must. We need to easily convert emails into planner tasks
I'm looking forward to seeing this reach my tenant!
If you want to beat Slack, please add this Button in Outlook, Web 265 Outlook and in Teams. Thank you!
We've tried to migrate to Planner from Trello but really can't justify a full migration until this feature is available.
This would be used immediately. It would also help to move my team from an Email-Based service model to a Planner-Based service model.

Seeing as this doesn't work with work accounts, I think the vast majority of users will not see this update as too beneficial.
GREAT idea for cross task 'pollination' as it were - sometimes you need BOTH and this would be a great enhancement!
It would be very helpful to have a To-Do icon in Outlook to replace the Task icon in the lower left corner of the screen.

RE: Planner Team's comment on "To-Do’s task experience" - sorry, how is that possibly relevant to this thread?
Especially when the link in your post says really horrible things, like: "Microsoft To-Do does not currently support ... the start and end dates, task status, task completion percentage, priority levels, task work hours, task colors, option to format text in notes, or file attachments", and "...currently only available for users logging in with a personal Microsoft account".
One would think your colleagues from "To-Do" team have very little to boast about, really.
But do you have any news on the "Convert to Task Planner button for emails" feature that this thread is about?
Lisa Murmann commented
please create the same kind of "button for teams.."
Seriously need that add-in. It would make things SO much easier.
Any update on this, we are all waiting with baited breath!!!!
Also waiting for this. Nearing a year of "Scheduled". An update would be wonderful!

Any ETA on this feature? Kind of crazy that similar non Microsoft products (Trello, Meistertask,etc.) have this and Planner doesn't.
Only thing keeping me from moving 100% to Planner.
Thank you for updating the response of may 2018: where are you?
It's for me and my clients priority # 1 !
I need that too please! And also syncrhonisation between Planner and Outlook (create a Planner task from Outlook, manage it in Planner or Outlook, and see the result in both). I found this useful workaround in the meantime, until Outlook, Planner and To-do get fully integrated/syncrhonised. It is a Flow routine that create automatically a new Planner Task for each email that you flag in Outlook. Better than nothing for now.
