As an update, our colleagues in To-Do have delivered the ability to create tasks directly from Outlook.com!
To-Do has rolled out the Tasks Pane for Outlook.com’s Mail & Calendar, and is also the new Tasks for Outlook.com! With Planner’s & To-Do’s integration, we hope that To-Do will become a central hub for all of your personal tasks, and that switching to Planner to collaborate with others is seamless!

The Planner Team
Thanks for everyone’s patience on this item. We’ve completed our first item in this space. We now set Task Activity Email Notifications (Assign and Complete) to Off By Default. Plan/Group owners can turn this setting on/off in the “Edit Plan” dialog.
We still have additional work planned in this area such as providing more granular controls to which activities will trigger notifications and more control over cases where you’ve been assigned tasks.
Thanks again for the feedback!

"We’re working on a change to have these off by default and configurable per-plan next week. We also have longer term features here to provide many more configurable options."
So did you plan on the delivery taking this long. This product is going to improve my life no end, but this lack of control on notifications we distract and put my team off using it... When will it be updated? Just a timeframe to manage expectations would be great...
