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!
Here’s more information on the To-Do’s task experience within Outlook: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-outlook-com-416865a1-0c4d-4e69-af6f-f98ffce3747c

How this is in To-Do and not in Planner yet is beyond me. You have to go through Microsoft Flow to implement something similar right now, and that is not supported in companies like mine with heavy 2factor authentication and Conditional Access. Flow never gets the token needed to trigger the Planner events, so this would fix it for me.
