Hi all,

 

I am trying to create a task in Planner and have that show as a "task" in Outlook DESKTOP (not web). I am thinking that this should be simple and I'm just missing it. I'd appreciate your help.

 

This is important to me because:

  • Our company uses Outlook Desktop and I want to see my tasks in the one app, next to my calendar without opening another app.
  • Outlook Tasks sync with iPhone reminders app, which is where all my family's shared reminders are.
  • I am trying to consolidate all my Planner, personal work and personal home tasks into one synced place.

I do understand that if in Planner I assign the task to myself, it shows up in the separate To Do app (which I don't use) or separate Teams app under "Assigned to Me". But "Assigned to Me" doesn't show up in Outlook Desktop client, only "tasks" does.

 

I do not want to add my Planner tasks to my Calendar. Calendar is ineffective for non-timed tasks, which many of my Planner tasks are.

 

I'm aware that there is a To Do app for iPhone, but like Teams and To Do, that is limited to Microsoft-only tasks, not other tasks / reminders from other sources like iPhone and iCloud.

 

So far, the only "tasks" I have found that work both in Microsoft and iOS is Outlook tasks.  

 

Thanks and appreciate the help.
