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.
