As of today, Microsoft Planner users can assign multiple people to a task—a feature that tops the list at planner.uservoice.com. Now, users can assign more than just one user to a task in Planner, and every user that is assigned the task will see it on their My Tasks page.

That's a good one, could you clarify Mr on the below?

I'm a member of 4 different planners, but only one planner I'm able to link in my teams application. How can I link the other planners to my teams application?

Thanks
