I was wondering if there are plan to better integrate Outlook with Teams in regards to the Group's email, calendar & tasks. It would be nice if the Team can see all group emails, all group tasks, and the calendar natively from within Teams rather than having to create a custom workflow to post emails into a channel, or to leave the app and go to Outlook.

Not only would I like to know this, but I would also like to know when the Teams addon for Outlook will be more stable. I keep having to disable mine because it's causing Outlook to become unresponsive and crash.

Yes, also very interested in this. My users have gotten kind of confused when we've created Teams that they are also following in Outlook and then they forget that message traffic is going to GROUPS dir rather than their main inbox. I'd also like to know if there are roadmap plans for more closely integrating Team with Microsoft To-Do?

This would be awesome! Right now, I have a private channel so I can use OWA to access all of my email, etc. Not the greatest but it's a work around until this is released.


We are doing work to transform the calendar experience, the visibility of the O365 Group calendar and tasks within our app.  Your personal email inbox is not in that scope at this time.   We will have more details on the tasks, To-Do, Planner and calendar enhancements as we get into next quarter.  But YES we've heard you and more is coming on these scenarios.  

@Karuana Gatimu That sounds great! As far as personal email in Teams, I would imagine that would not be needed as you can simply visit outlook. I was more concerned about Group Related outlook items as it applies to the entire team for collaboration :)
