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

When you add an email to Planner through Flow, it's a dead link (I have mine where it adds it when I click the task flag). So, when you're ready to do your task, you have to go back into Outlook and find the original email to get details and information so you can complete your task. Worse when you have a team using it together and they can't see your emails. Planner is so awesome and a game-changer...this is a huge missing piece. Please add this!!!
