In Outlook, I can take a task and assign it to someone within my organization. Is that something I can do in Microsoft Planner? If not, will that be a feature that will be implemented?

@Jschm001 Hello! Thank you for your question. 

 

Yes, in Planner you can assign task to other people in your organization. In order to do so, you will both need to be in the same M365 group associated with the plan. Then, you can assign tasks to them! 

 

Let me know if that doesn't answer your question
