Integrate Planner with Microsoft To-Do
Please make it possible for tasks created in Planner to sync with Microsoft To-Do, so it is accessible across Outlook, To-Do and Planner.
We’ve just released our integration with To-Do as a first step towards a larger task coherence initiative.
Today, you can view and edit Planner tasks you’ve been assigned in To-Do’s new Assigned to me list. This is available on to-do.office.com and To-Do’s Windows, Android, and iOS apps.
Here are more details on this integration: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Planner-and-To-Do-integration-bringing-you-a-more-cohesive-task/ba-p/553485
Our work in this area is not done, and we’re relying on you to help us decide what’s next, please keep the suggestions coming!
The Planner Team
It's been nearly a year since I saw Demo of this at Ignite 2017. What's going on guys? Do we have to wait until Ignite again to see any progress on this?
Leslie Accardo + Habeeb exactly. I use Todo for daily and weekly tasks planning, and planner for monthly and yearly planning.

I have been using To-Do and really love it especially with the latest updates. But it needs to be integrated with the other products. I want to see ALL of my To-do's in one spot.
As planner is a "team" task tracker and To-Do is a "persona" tracker, it seems like a great integration point would be tasks assigned to you in Planner should be show up as tasks in To-Do.
Please...todo + planner good integration !
No official comment from an admin at all in over a year?!?
This integration is a deal breaker. I need to be able to seamlessly move tasks between my personal 'silo' in To-Do and the team environment of Planner, and similarly to see everything in one place, rather than two. I get that Microsoft's task management ethos is different from Wunderlist, but this feels like a major step backwards in terms of functionality. Please make this a priority.
This is a must - there is to many different sources for to do's to come from. Need to be able to grab a task from "planner" and add it to "My Day"
Planner is great, ToDo is great - please allow them to integrate!

Any update? Just saw the demo from Ignite and was searching for it in the app.
Please keep my posted on this integration, would be great
This was announced back in September 2017 on Ignite. Still no progress from MS on this...
There are far too many places to keep track of To Do items in Office 365! Planner, To Dos and Outlook. These all need to integrate so staff can use the tool of choice. Otherwise they will be data islands and won't be relied on.

I agree, please integrate task created in planner so they can be seen in To-Do
I would like to say, in this same thought, please also make it optional to put all of my To-Do tasks sync into Outlook. I think it's redundant and unneeded as I do not prefer the Outlook Tasks view. For far future, if you just replaced the Outlook tasks with the To-Do interface inside of Outlook, that would be fine as well. But the default setting to dump all of my To-Do tasks into Outlook as well (especially without the outlook tasks syncing back to To-Do) is overkill/unhelpful. Double notifications seem possible iwth that as well. I've yet to make the jump to To-Do as I can't integrate my personal tasks where they overlap with team tasks as I can now iwth Wunderlist, in one simple interface with a functional mobile app. I'm making strides to use planner for a big project and as soon as To-Do integrates with Planner, I think I could make that workflow work and drop Wunderlist.
Excited things are moving forward!
We need this also

It is planned and on its way https://todo.uservoice.com/forums/597175-feature-suggestions/suggestions/18980623-integrate-with-planner
For a seamless integration of tasks and personal to-dos would be great to have!
