Easy Way to create Planner Tasks from E-Mail (e.g. by forwarding the E-Mail to Planner)
Provide an easy way to create a Planner Task from an E-Mail. For example a E-Mail can be forwarded to the Teams Conversations. It would be very helpful if one can do the same thing with a Planner Board.
Yes, I need this! I already can do it in Trello, with the supplement, but I can't do it with Planner, this integration in Office apps should work better.
In Trello you can forward a mail to a bucket defined as inbox and create a task

A very important feature for me, I know it from Bitrix24.
A lot of my e-mails (as a manager) need to be actioned by someone in my team. I would like to forward the e-mail to planner and then be able to assign it to the appropriate board and sub-ordinate. That will help to track progress ensureing it is not lost or ignored.
Very helpful and should be comparable to the Jira-Outlook Add-in from Yasoon or in a more simple way the add-on from Wunderlist. Add the E-Mail to a specific bucket within a specific, selected plan including the attachment as a new task certainly. And in addition, add an incoming E-Mail to an existing task within planner including again certainly a relevant attachment. Thus you can better interact e.g. with people outside of the company to record everything in planner tasks.
