Overview of Planner tasks in Outlook tasks
We are a lot of Time Manager Pro's who are really looking for a syncronization betw Planner and Outlook tasks. Take a look at apps4pro. The To-do app can't solve our need for a total overview of workload = tasks+meetings (as it is possible in Outlook).

Planner lack of collaboration capabilities
It seems like Microsoft teams aren't collaborating when developing collaboration tools on O365 (Windows365) as there are neither a synchronization between OneNote and Planner, or between Outlook To-Do tasks and Planner.
This is a high priority if Microsoft wants us to use Planner. If not, It will be hard to use Planner in an efficient way.
Synchronizations should exist between:
1. Decide when to use what tool.
a) Outlook To-Do tasks are individual and shouldn't be displayed to everyone in the team (but the possibility should be available, if the PM so wish)
b) Planner tasks should be displayed by everyone in the team
2. We use OneNote to write Meeting Minutes in OneNote (good tool but needs improvements)
a1) Tasks are assigned to Outlook To-Do tasks (use a tag = exists today)
From Outlook tasks - can view content in specific task in OnNote (exist today)
From Outlook tasks - % completed to be reflected into OneNote (Not existing today)
a2) MS To-Do, work the same as (a1)
b1) Tasks are assigned to Planner tasks (use a tag = Not existing today and no WA)
From Planner tasks - can view content in specific task in OnNote (Not existing today and no WA)
From Planner tasks - % completed to be reflected into OneNote (Not existing today and no WA)
b2) MS To-Do, work the same as (b1) - (Not existing today and no WA). But tasks assigned in Planner pops-up in MS To-Do
3. When assigning a task in OneNote, there might already exist a task in either Outlook To-Do tasks or in Planner.
(a1) It should be possible to connect to this task, as it can contain a lot of information.
(a2) It should also be possible to add more information into the task
4. I think it might be too much to ask for a synchronization between Planner and collaboration tools, or at least a link?
a) MS Project - Planner, and vice verse
b) MS Project - Outlook To-Do tasks
c) MS Project - MS To-Do
d) OneNote and link to "OneNote" Notes in MS Project
