Tasks, To-Do & Planner... please fix them and unify them (aka make your mind)
We're getting ready to move from GSuite and one of the things that we use a lot is tasks. Specially creating tasks from email. Here in Office 365 is all messed up. Let me explain:
If I flag an email it generates an Outlook task but it does not appear in To-Do.
In Outlook desktop if I drag email and drop it over tasks icon, it generates a task that appears in To-Do, but the content of the email gets messed up and embedded pictures disappear.
-So far, there is no way to drag and drop in OWA since there's no side panel so I could not test that.
-Tasks are not embedded in Outlook. Having to leave mail window to manage tasks makes it less productive.
-New Outlook interface even opens tasks in a new tab. Is it going to be the final behabiour when released? For the love of ..., that's so counter productive (unless there's a side panel also)
-Planner is not linked to To-Do so I have to manage two apps in order to know my tasks for the day. Is that correct?
Am I missing something or are these just bugs?
The new 'My Day' option in Outlook is fantastic! Loving it alot so far. But the Tasks section is severely crippled for me without having access to To-Do's 'My Day' list. That's my go-to for everything I do in a given day. I'm lost without it!

If we could add the Task of the eMail and My day to Planner - Say "MYPlanner" for that any pending Task can be transferred to "MY Planner" or they integrate to a Planner called "MY Planner" since this is my specific plan.
