    Hello!

    Thank you again for your feedback and patience. We’re happy to announce that the schedule view of tasks is fully implemented and the iCalendar format feed is coming soon! Head over to tasks.office.com to check it out!

    Here’s a link to our support article to learn more about viewing your tasks on a calendar: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/view-your-tasks-on-a-calendar-8647d2c9-9bc7-466a-b5b3-74b3596fade2?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    If you’re still interested in an integration with Outlook, please follow along with the conversation on this thread: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/11037114-integration-with-outlook-tasks

    We’d love to hear your thoughts on these two new features! Feel free to comment below, send us a smile through the O365 menu (select the question mark icon, click ‘feedback’, then include the word “Planner”), or tweet using #MicrosoftPlanner.

    Cheers,

    The Planner Team

    For many people Outlook (Windows, iOS, Android, OWA) will be their default working application, their ‘goto’ app. However, the mobile Outlook apps lack tasks functionality and the todo apps seem to lack consistent connectivity to exchange server. Therefore, it seems a strange omission to create the planner software suite and not build in connectivity to exchange server even at a minimal level of allowing the integration of scheduled tasks from planner appearing in the appropriate person’s outlook calendar. Are you telling us that you have created a separate calendar function, re-invented the wheel and not entered into dialogue with the exchange server guys? OK. Exchange Server uses the JET engine while planner is layered on top of Sharepoint which is layered on top of SQL server. There are connectors out there. Go and play.

    Beyond the iCalendar feed, we will continue to explore our options for adding tasks to Outlook Calendar automatically. We would love to hear more of your thoughts on the following:
    -What information from tasks would you like to carry over to Outlook Calendar?
    -How many different plans would you like to view on your Outlook Calendar?
    -Any specific scenarios or examples of how this would fit into your workflow

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team
