Is there any Outlook integration development on the roadmap for Planner?

 

I am looking to move an SME from Trello to Planner, but there are a few features lacking in Planner that would make this difficult.

 

One clear disadvantage at the moment is the inability to push emails to Planner/ create new Tasks directly from Outlook. 

 

Equally useful would be the ability to use a shortcut on the desktop to add a new Task, which can be done with Trello.
