We already have a Planner group with lots of tasks underway, and want to either add that into Teams or add Teams to that Planner, but I cannot figure out how to do that. Any suggestions?

I'm assuming you were able to create the team in Microsoft Teams and connect it to the existing O365 Group? (If not, see instructions at bottom of https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint-Blog/SharePoint-and-OneDrive-welcome-Microsoft-Tea...).
Here's my understanding:

Yes, it is connected to our Office 365 account. It could see existing Groups to add teams too, and even sees the "Product Launch" group, which is associated with our "Product Launch" Planner, but it wants to create a new Planner, so it must be as the 2nd part of your post suggests - not possible yet.

You're right, Steve! I was shorthand in my reply and have updated it.

Each channel can have multiple plans. This isn't quite the same planner as the one accessed through groups, for example there is no way to view the graphs, just the boards. Maybe it's something that will develop as we get to the final release.
I'm ok not seeing the graphs, but I cannot even see the boards from the Planner I want to be part of the Team.
I would be ok creatting a new Planner in the Team but Planner has no way to copy or move items between Planners.
What this means for me today is Teams is of limited use unless I am starting an all new project, in which case I can start the Team and a new Planner, but none of our existing stuff can take advantage of Teams.

Same need here.
Please better integrate "office 365 plans" with "ms teams plans"

I completely understand that its early stages of Teams and that we can now utilise multiple plans within a team, however a good point has been raised regarding adding existing plans to a team in the same way we can currently add existing Power BI dashboards or sharepoint sites.

Would be nice indeed to be able to add existing planners to a team.
BTW: as far as I can tell, there's no way to add Power BI Dashboards, only reports? This is also quite annoying since the dashboard have a clean layout.

In the same way as team channel files and notes are visible in team's SharePoint site as folders and Notebook sections, I would like the Team planners to be visible in the Planner Hub.
At the moment it seems that:
This is rather confusing, limiting and I hope will be fixed before lauch

Thanks, Dan. What you say is correct, Dan. Unfortunately there isn't a way to bring in a pre-existing Planner into Microsoft Teams.
Need to be developed !

Where are the Planner Task records actually stored? Are these just records in Outlook objects (as Tasks were)? Or are they in a separate object as Notebooks are?

How this is missing is a little bit beyond me.
This effectively makes Microsoft Teams useless for groups that want to manage their tasks through planner.
Microsoft needs to fix this today!

By the way, this topic should not be marked "Solved". It is very misleading, reading all the way to the end to find out that it is not even possible.
It should be marked as "Bug Report not resolved" or "Product Functionality missing"

Excellent @Dave Heller! Looking forward to it. I'll be equally excited to add existing planners to Teams, as well as get full Planner functionality in the Teams planner, like linking and attaching files.
