Please integrate Outlook for Mac with Office 365 Planner
The tasks from Office 365 Planner should be tightly integrated in Outlook for Mac including the Charts & Boards view. This would fuel the collaboration and usage of "Groups" in Outlook for Mac. Today you need to use multiple tools to achieve your goal.

It would be really helpful if you could link emails in outlook to MS Planner. I use Planner as a To Do list because I prefer it to other apps and it would help to add emails to buckets in Planner
Kinda strange that Microsoft hasn't integrated Outlook (on Mac) with Planner in such a way that you can schedule a task in planner from an email. Be good if they were connected so that you can click the task in Planner and be taken to the originating emails.
I can view tasks assigned to me created in Planner on my Outlook account on the web when clicking on the Task icon. I can also view tasks assigned from Planner in Calendar view, both web app and native Outlook for Mac. Yet, when I click on the Task icon in Outlook for Mac none of my tasks created in Planner show up. I can see tasks created in To Do though. This seems bizarre and should be remedied. It will do wonders for productivity and usage in Outlook.
I fully agree. It will improve productivity. Today, I use Flow (button) but it is not optimal. Thank you
