New in Microsoft planner - Add and assign tasks to non-members of the Group.

When you assign the task to non-members, they are added as the members to the respective @office365 Group and the task gets assigned. But this option is viewable only to the group owners as they can able to add members to the group.

@Santhosh Balakrishnan Does this mean that they can then view the entire plan including all the tasks? 

@PFH_abby  unfortunately yes.  This method adds the user to the M365 Group, which means they have access to all of your group planner boards, Team channels, SharePoint site and anything else your group uses.
