Create Planner tasks within Outlook
Add new Planner tasks to an existing Plan from within Outlook, including turning an email into a Planner task
Luke Harwood commented
I would like to be able to designate an email in my inbox and turn it into a task that can be added to a planner board. I constantly receive requests/complaints from customers as well as other executives and I'd love the functionality to be able to click a ribbon button in outlook (similar to the "share to teams" button that MS Teams has made available) and be able to designate: which board it goes to, who it's assigned to and due date, with the body and metadata of the email in the description and all file attachments (including the *.msg file itself) added to the attachments in the planner task.

You can add your Planner calendar to Outlook calendar, but it's read only. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/see-your-planner-calendar-in-outlook-5dcccce5-2750-49b5-991b-1837379d96c7. I would like the ability to add tasks to Outlook and see/edit them in Planner, and vice versa.
