    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

    -What information from tasks would you like to carry over to Outlook Calendar?

    Task Title
    Task Start and End Dates
    Assigned to

    -How many different plans would you like to view on your Outlook Calendar?

    As many as my company needs to display - unlimited

    -Any specific scenarios or examples of how this would fit into your workflow

    Currently no workflows are configured, but if it makes life better, I will research and configure some. Helpful suggestions are welcome, if you've discovered meaningful workflow steps that would make life awesome - please mention them.

    Our need is to display the tasks that are in the planner in everyone's Outlook calendars...when the tasks start date arrives, it needs to be set AUTOMATICALLY to "In Progress", then when the task end date is over, it needs to set the status to "complete" AUTOMATICALLY.....the tasks are showing in my planner and calendar. I am in the team however. Do I have to add everyone to the team, or can they use a link from the calendar to add to their outlook?

    I haven't tested if adding new tasks to Teams is updating automatically in my outlook yet, but this question was posted in 2016, and its 10/2019...I'm hoping this is solved and is working already.

    Thought Id answer the Admin questions in hopes that it helps somehow, and perhaps for suggestions from anyone that is already skilled with teams/planner/tasks/workflows.

    Thanks!

    Anyone figure out a way to easily change the status?
