Allow Tasks to be moved between Plans/Boards - Reopen
This task was CLOSED since the description said "copy or move" but the response is clearly we want to do what the subject line said.
Currently you can only move Tasks to different Buckets within a Plan/Board. It would be very useful to be able to also move them to different Plans/Boards and retain history when reorganizing or re-assigning tasks.
Copying is useless - I have multiple boards, and I use MS Flow to create tasks in planner for myself based on actions I've listed in OneNote. I have to send all tasks to one board and then redistribute them to the correct board - time consuming and frustrating to have to reassign each task to myself.

It should be a basic functionality to move a task between plans and keep ALL information attached to the task.
Andrew Adams commented
Agreed. The move function is just as important if not more so than the copy function.
Wayne Jackson commented
YES!!!! move the whole task, without me having to check or uncheck things, from one planner to another without leaving the old task behind.
Sarah Griffin commented
Yes, being able to copy to a different board was helpful, but the full request to move a task is important as well. I just came across this when restructuring some boards in my department and had to split existing tasks onto multiple new boards. I ended up having to decide which to keep under a renamed board and which to copy, but lose all the history.
we need the move function, not the copy function
Please include the capability to move tasks!!!
