Move a Plan from one Group to different Group/Team
As there is not control of the creation of Plans/Groups/Teams
sometimes a dupicate group or team or plan gets created and the ability to move these plans to a different group (the correct one) is essential.
Our situation is this:
One team member has created a Team, another created a Group.
staff has used the planner from the group but some how used everything else from the team, (channels, site, files, notebook).
We want to move the planner that is attached to the Group and move it to the one with the Team. Then remove the duplicate group.
My situation is the EXACT same as OP describes. If we can copy singular tasks (albeit with limited info) across Groups, then we should be able to do the same with for entire Plans.
A crude way to solve the problem is to create a Website tab within the Team where you want the plan and use the link from the team with the plan. The plan will be in 2 places but at least you can edit it in both.
can't believe that it is still not possible!?

This is a basic need to be able to move a plan around to another group. Very disappointing to hear this feature is not available.

It is amazing to see that such a needed feature is not available and I really hope Microsoft works on this and get it out asap.

How is it possible that you copy a plan an it creates a new group automatically by itselft named "CopyOfGroupBlaBlabla"? you cant choose a name, you cant choose where to place it. I would even like to move a plan not just to copy to another group or even to a channel in teams.
Microsoft we really need simplicity, we need things that just works. Why every little thing we need to do in office 365 is so complex or impossible? Great tools but poor management experience.
This is a simple and logical request and I see its been asked since 2017, but there is no response, this is so basic that I cant believe its not available since the first day that the service was released.
after starting using Teams big time it gives us a lot of challenges that all our plans has been added with different Office 365 Groups - we need to be able to change the Office 365 Group on a Plan in Planner - Eg we cannot see documents in Teams on the different Plans in Planner due to Wrong Office 365 Groups - Please add this feature!
I've found threads from a year ago requesting the ability to copy a plan within an existing group, but for the life of me I cannot figure out if this has been implemented and, if so, how to do it. This is hard to believe.

Do we have any updates on this feature request?
This option will save me hours of manual work. Essential to our business.
This is critical for integration with teams, when we have team move in the organisation, we can't move the plans into a new team!
This is important!
We have a plan thats restricted to a team, but now we want to branch that plan to other teams, and we've found that we can't. We're now relying on that team to maintain this board.
Are only alternative is to manually copy the entire board but this is a big board and thats a time investment we're short on.
We like Planner but if we cant work around this, we'll have to swap back to Trello

+++ Please add this!
This is a must, our my executive team is going to force me to use an alternate...just saying.
This is urgently needed! One has to be flexible here
