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

If the following information from tasks/planner could flow to an Outlook Calendar, it would replace our need for combining planners across channels within a Team into one (which is a separate request in "Tell Us More") as we could use the Outlook Calendar instead of the planner for this view.
The *Project Manager* role would need to be able to see:
-Bucket Name/Task Name/Assigned/with the color of the label, and this should display on the Due Date, for all Team Members assigned a Task. If no Due Date assigned, it wouldn't need to flow to Outlook. It would be ideal if when user clicked on this item in Outlook, it would open the Task in Teams to allow user to see details. There should be a setting in Team Planner to "enable" the flow to Outlook, as in our use of Teams, we wouldn't need the Task from some Channels to flow to Outlook. This setting should allow naming a specific Outlook calendar, or if no specific calendar assigned, allow it to default to the main calendar.
The *Individual User* Role would need to be able to see:
- Same as above but for only their tasks.
Again, this functionality would replace our request to be able to see across multiple planners in one, or be able to view all Tasks assigned to a user across multiple Teams.
Thanks for sharing your feedback.
We would like to hear more about how you would utilize this view. If you have a particular scenario or set of teammates for which you’d like to view tasks for, please share below!
