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

Hello Planner, look at the fields required to create planner task.. make those fields avail in outlook when a user is reading an email and clicks a button called “create planner task”.. that would go a long way for us.. then in a couple months add the ability to create a plan/Board within this new “create planner task” feature ... just give us something basic to start with(other than your flow solution) then expand from there.. look at trello, apps4pro, wrike, asana.. outlook add in for guidance...
