Find out how task management across Microsoft 365 helps you find your tasks where you need them, regardless of where you captured them. In this session, we’ll share the latest integrations of tasks from Teams, Outlook, To Do, Planner, Office documents, SharePoint and more.

@MelissaBathum,

Why don't we see Project for the Web in that ecosystem? It looks like an evolution to Planner; has some overlap with Planner but lives in a completly different storage than Planner. 

 

Our users need a little more than what Planner currently offer and those features are in P4W. But then, P4W doesn't integrate with Office / Outlook / To-Do.

 

Thanks.

Hi @MelissaBathum and Holly, you mentioned that Cortona becomes available for M365 Enterprise users, does that include Business Standard licenses? And you mentioned that it becomes available in English. Our company is in the Netherlands, and i've set up my apps and OS language in English. Will that make it work for us?

 

Thanks!

@timdejonq Briefing email from Cortana is starting to roll out for Exchange Online users with English mailboxes. For more on Cortana, visit https://aka.ms/cortanaupdatesignite2020

@MelissaBathum This looks very promissing. However, until the notification issue around comments in Planner tasks is fixed (only people the comment on the task get a notification), our users refuse to use planner.

@Gunter Danzeisen @MelissaBathum - this has been a headache for us as well - and I believe it was expected to be resolved via @mentions at some point (see UserVoice idea below) - but we're still waiting for that functionality to materialize.

 

I'm glad to see continued innovation for tasks across 365, but it would still be helpful to see this addressed as well.

@MelissaBathum Hopeful to see the Azure icon on the ecosystem slide! Would be awesome to see Azure DevOps integration with To Do/Tasks in Teams as we use Azure Boards for our kanban needs instead of Planner.

+1, unique task concept throught MS ecosystem (project, Planner, ToDo...) would be great.

To be able to see directly daily tasks including project or planner. To be able to see resources tasks through all the tools ecosystem

@Benoit Fournier 

I completely agree in regards to seeing a need for P4TW and Planner integration. I understand that most of the same features that are in Planner are in P4TW today but integrating the two would help streamline end user's task management by being able to see all of their tasks together in one place, i.e., Outlook, To Do, Tasks in Teams, etc., Besides, why have two of the same? Maybe the Project Plan 1 license requirement is the roadblock. 

 

And although the ability to see P4TW tasks lives only in P4TW, you can now add a P4TW project to Teams and also notify a Team member via Outlook when they have been assigned a task with a Flow through Power Automate.
