Integration with Power BI
Integrate with Power Bi in ways we could statistics.
Would be really helpful if it were possible to connect Power BI to Planner, so to at least be able to create your own reports, because the standard graphs in Planner are pretty much useless. Would be even better if Microsoft were to supply standard templates as well in Power BI, so you don't have to create everything from scratch.

I'm truly surprised there's no Power BI integration with planner. It would make complete sense to me that all MS products integrate to Power BI.

I was really surprised there is no connector for PowerBI/PowerQuery because there is a connector for PowerAutomate!
This functionality is a must for me to "sell" Planner vs using your competitors products within my company. The ability to connect with Power BI would enable use of custom fields for additional data which has also been a limitation of Planner.
For sure, this integration will bring the opportunity to have Planner as a central control for those actions originated among the many departments of the organization. With Power BI charts we can show in performance meetings those who are not doing their part in the process.

Please let us access planner data in Power BI. This will enable me to show activity in a group related to product groups, budgeting, monthly activity and so much more!!
