    Hello! We wanted to provide an update to our status below. As we announced in our previous status update, our initial integration with To Do was our first step in a journey of bringing all your Microsoft Task Management services closer together, including Outlook and Planner. Through To Do, you can see your Planner tasks within Outlook on the Web.

    However, the continuing feedback on this post makes it clear that there is a desire for more work to be done to improve this experience. We want to make sure this feedback and votes aren’t getting lost by being added to this existing post.

    Instead, we’d like to make sure you have a forum to express these continuing pain points / desires, and a way to vote for which ones you’d like us to work on first (and how we should prioritize those asks against the many other great asks…

    I would like to see the tasks integrated with Outlook Calendar when assigned a due date.
    This would be much easier to implement than using To-Do as all our users already use Outlook on a daily basis.
    My goal with this is to remind users of a task in the case that they have forgotten. If they have forgotten the task, they have probably also forgotten to check To-Do, but with Outlook they will receive a notification which would be helpful.

    They are also much more likely to check their Outlook calendar, or even Teams calendar, than To-Do. Since Teams syncs with Outlook, that wouldn't be an issue.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for your patience. We have updated our Copy Plan experience – please try it out today!

    This improvement will include the ability to choose an existing group or team to copy the plan into (or choose to create a new group). You’ll also be able to customize what gets copied over. Attachments can only be copied over into existing groups.

    You can learn more here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/planner-blog/expanding-the-copy-plan-and-filtering-features-based-on-your/ba-p/1483491

    Copying a plan is not very useful for Teams.
    Unless I'm missing something (definitely possible), I can't put a copied plan into a Teams channel, which is very useful for my organization to check in on the progress of the task.

    I would like to see the feature available directly through the Teams app so that users can create a plan through Teams by being able to select a template, much like the option to use an existing plan.
    The problem with using an existing plan is that it also uses the progress of that plan so that completed tasks are still shown as completed on the new plan.

    Hello! Since this is one of our top asks from users (and has been for quite a while), we wanted to provide a quick update here. As mentioned in our last update, our team has been heads down shipping some recent integrations, such as the Tasks app in teams and Tasks in Docs (both of which have initial versions rolling out now!).

    Recurring tasks (and the other top UserVoice asks) are still high on our backlog. I’ll provide updates here as this feature gets closer to being shipped! We also may use this forum to reach out to you, our engaged users, with design questions we have—so stay tuned if you’d like to help us bring you the best version of recurring tasks!

    In the meantime, it’s great to see so much active engagement here. We continue to iterate on our initial designs as we get more feedback from users,…

    This would be extremely beneficial to my organization as we have several routine tasks that need to be repeated precisely and in order for success.
    Being able to recreate the plan in a few clicks as opposed to retyping the entire plan (consisting of three tasks with 10+ checklist items each) would be a huge time saver.
    It would be especially helpful to the less tech-savvy users in our organization so that I could create the templates and the other users would be able to open and assign from there.
