    If Planner is to become a useful tool at all, it needs to have more flexibility. So far, I cannot see a way to create a plan in the Planner Hub, and then use the plan within an existing team that is already setup. It appears to me that those that created this application did not put a lot of thought into how this is actually used. My company uses Microsoft Project, (but not Project Online, or Project Professional), so unfortunately, I am stuck with the lame Planner application to be collaborative. Most of my project plans are 300-400 lines long, and creating a plan from scratch each time is not practical, and honestly, is a complete waste of my time. Please, if Microsoft plans on this being a strategic part of the Teams applications, work on improving this application before rolling it out to the general public. Right now, it is nothing more than a fancy task list, it has lots of potential, but is not ready for prime time.

    I cannot figure out how to copy a plan from the Planner Hub, and then add that plan (almost like using a template), to the specific team. The way that Planner works is very problematic, and not clear at all.
