How to automatically add microsoft planner tasks to your outlook calendar.
Make Microsoft Planner automatically add tasks to your Outlook calendar. Here's how.
Create a planner microsoft link, add the planner to your outlook calendar, share the planner with another calendar, stop sharing your planner calendar.
To-do list software can be a real productivity booster, but there's always the risk that it becomes just another list. Use Microsoft Planner to automatically add tasks to your calendar so you know when you've got due dates coming up.
We've covered the basics of Microsoft Planner before, but as a quick catchup, Planner is a to-do app that comes with Office 365 (O365). It's available for anyone with a paid subscription to O365, whether that's a personal subscription you've paid yourself or an enterprise license that your company pays for.
Planner lets you add the tasks from a plan to a calendar by creating a publishing link. This allows anyone with the link to import it into their calendar. It is a great feature for a team planner, where everyone will be able to see when tasks are due for completion.
However, you don't have to share this link with anyone (and it's an incredibly long link that no one could ever guess or find by accident), so your Planner data is perfectly safe.
To create a publishing link, go to the Microsoft Planner website and log in with your O365 account details.
In the menu on the left-hand side, select the plan you'd like to add to your calendar.
Click the three dots next to the "Schedule" option, then select "Add Plan To Outlook Calendar".
In the panel that opens, click the "Publish" option.
At this point, you have two distinct options. You can add the Planner tasks to your Outlook calendar by clicking "Add To Outlook", or you can copy the "iCalendar link" and import the Planner task to any calendar software you like.
If you click "Add To Outlook", your Outlook calendar will open and display the iCalendar subscription for you to confirm.
Change the calendar's display name and then click "Save".
The Planner calendar will show up in the "Other calendars" section. Tasks in the calendar will appear on the due date of the task.
It can take a little while for Outlook to refresh and pick up the tasks from a published calendar, so don't worry if they don't turn up straight away.
If you want to add the planner tasks to a different calendar---either yours or someone else's---select the whole of the iCalendar link and copy it using CTRL+C on Windows or CMD+C on a Mac.
You can now either share it with someone else or add it to your own calendar. If you're not sure how to add an iCalendar link to your calendar, it's really easy whether you're using Google Calendar , Apple Calendar , or you want to add it to a different Outlook calendar .
If you want to stop sharing your Microsoft Planner tasks, click the three dots next to the "Schedule" option in the application and then select "Add Plan To Outlook Calendar" again.
Select the "Unpublish" option.
This will remove the link, which will stop anyone using the link from getting any updates.

Create a Microsoft Flow to Convert an Email Into a Microsoft Planner Task With Notes In 5 Steps
- Eric Miller
- August 22, 2022
Editor’s Notes: (3/28/2023): Added more details on how to format the output of the link to the emai l and also added a final step to clear the flag. (1/27/2023): Microsoft seemed to change the format for a link to the URL. So I updated Step 5 with the new format.
I know this is not a normal topic for PADT’s blog, but I just updated my Microsoft Flow for converting an email into a task, and it took me a while to find an example of what I wanted to do. So I thought I’d share what I did to get it to work.
Wait, You Need a Microsoft Flow For This?
Yup. In Microsoft Outlook Online, you can right-click on an email and make a ToDo task. But there is no way to do that in Outlook desktop or the mobile app, and it doesn’t make a planner task. And I use Microsoft Planner as my task management tool, not ToDo.
The recommended solution to this shortcoming is to use a Microsoft Flow to take any flagged email and make a task. There are a ton of examples for this on the interweb, and this served me well for a long time. The algorithm is:
- Start the Microsoft flow when an “email is flagged” event happens
- Get your user profile information
- Use the email subject as the task subject
- Assign my Office365 User ID to assign the task to me
- Include a preview of the email body
- Create a URL that links to the email in Outlook online
- Clear the flag
But the Subject Alone was Not Enough
This worked for me for more than a year. But I found that half the time I was working my way through the task list, the email’s subject string was not enough to remind me what I needed to do. What I wanted was to capture who it was from and the start of the content. And ideally, a link to the email.
And you can’t add this info to a task when you create it, you have to modify it. And that generated an error.
The secret was that you couldn’t just modify a Planner task after you make it. You have to give it some time to make its way into the cloud, then modify it. So you add a Delay, then add “Update task Details.”
Here is my Microsoft flow.
1. Start with a Flagged Email:
2. Get your ID with “Get my Profile.”
3. Make the new task with “Create a task.”
Use the subject from the email to identify the task. Note that I already made a “From Email” bucket in my primary ToDo Plan. You can also make a plan just for email-based tasks. While I was in there, I also set the start date to the date of the email to let me know when it came in. Last but not least, I use my Azure ID to assign the new task to me.
4. Wait for it to get stored with “Delay.”
20 Seconds seems fine for me. Add more if it fails on you. This delay is critical to get the flow to work. If you don’t put the wait in, the information you need for future steps may not be in the cloud where you can get at it.
5. Add the info you want with “Update Task Details.”
Here is where you can get fancy. Use the ID from the plan to tell the flow which task you want to modify. If “Id” doesn’t show up in the dropdown, scroll down on the dropdown and choose “Enter Custom Value,” and choose “Id.”
Then fill in the description with stuff you think you will need when you read the task in a few days. I use:
That is a bit confusing, so here it is explained:
- This is the internal Id of the task you just created and waited for
- From the email that triggered the flow, the email on the From line
- To get a new line of text, you have to use this function to create a unicode linefeed character
- Do it again to get a blank line
- Gives the first bunch of characters in the email instead of the whole body
- This is the first part of the URL needed to point to a message in the browser version of outlook.
- Internal Id for the triggering email.
- Arguments telling Outlook web interface to use the ID and open it for reading.
Now, if you want to get fancy, you could save the email message to a file on OneDrive, then put the link to the message in the Reference section. Sounds like a pain, and I’d rather deal with the email in Outlook.
6. Clear the Flag with “Flag email (V2)”
Now that the task is created in planner, you should clear the flag on the email.
Do that with a Flag email (V2) step. I renamed it “Clear Flag.” Set the Message Id to the ID for your message and then set Flag Status to “Not flagged”
Check Out Your Shiney New Task
Here is what it looks like on my Plan:
And if I click on the task, I can see the information I want and the URL:
Give It a Try
I’ve not tried to share a flow outside of my organization before, but here is a zip file you can try and import:
Use at your own risk, etc…

Planner task to Outlook desktop task
I think this should be fairly easily, perhaps I'm missing it:
I would like a Planner Task to become / sync with an Outlook DESKTOP task. That's it. Outlook "Tasks" do a good job of playing with other standards like Apple iOS Reminders, so my current Outlook desktop tasks appear alongside my family's iOS tasks and sync both ways. But I can't get Planner tasks to make their way to Outlooks Desktop tasks.
I don't want the Planner Task to become a "To Do" "Assigned to Me" task, since these don't show up in Outlook Desktop and I don't use To Do.
I understand that I can see To Do tasks in Outlook web client, I am looking for the desktop app tasks.
Likewise, I know I can see To Do in Teams, but same, those To Do tasks from Planner don't make it to Outlook desktop.
It's unlikely my company will move to iPhone reminders or employ my teenagers and give them a corporate account!
Hopefully something simple I am missing. Thanks for the help.

Thank you for your question in this community,
Outlook for Desktop doesn't support displaying Tasks from Planner. It can however show your own Tasks folders and Task folders from others shared with you. It can also display your Flagged Emails.
Outlook on the Web uses the web version of Microsoft To Do to display your tasks which includes tasks from Planner as well.
If you really want them to show in Outlook, then you could use Microsoft Power Automate to achieve this. There are various templates available already or you could create your own to tweak it even more to your likings.

Sorry this didn't help.
Great! Thanks for your feedback.
How satisfied are you with this reply?
Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.
Thanks for your feedback.
OK, thank you Ethan, that seems like some basic functionality missing from Outlook desktop. Is Outlook desktop client being discontinued? Or, is it going to get the same features of the web version? At a corporate level we're trying to get user adoption for everything O365, but when each app has slightly different functionality and the only choice for interoperability is a connector like Power Automate, a lot of users will continue to opt for their own individual apps, which can already connect with IFFT or Power Automate etc. Thanks for answering.
Hi Thank you for your reply. I am very sorry for the trouble you have caused. This is indeed a functional limitation. I sincerely recommend that you feed your thoughts back to our official, in your Outlook>file>feedback,
Of course, If you really need this feature and want to know the relevant knowledge of PowerAutomate, I suggest you go to the relevant PowerAutomate community . There are many professional engineers and community members who can help you solve this problem. Please don't mind if I send your Problem redirection, because this community is more about solving Office 365 business problems! Thank you for your support and understanding! Best Regards Ethan

Use Tasks in Outlook.com
A task is an item that you create that you want to track until it's completed. Use To Do in Outlook.com to create, edit, and manage tasks.
Choose your version for instructions
The instructions are slightly different depending on whether you're using To Do in Outlook.com or the classic Tasks. Choose the version you're using to see the instructions that apply to you.
Note: The classic Tasks experience will be removed in the coming months.
IF THE ICON LOOKS LIKE...

Instructions for To Do in Outlook.com
Microsoft To Do is now integrated with Outlook.com. To Do is taking the place of Tasks and includes smart lists. Smart lists are filtered lists that make it easier to track tasks and organize your day. With To Do integration, you can quickly organize your tasks by adding them to My Day, marking them as important, or adding them to new lists that you create. There's even a list for tasks that you've assigned a date to. To get started, Sign in to Outlook.com .
To Do is a bit different from the classic Tasks in Outlook.com. Some features are different, and others will be added as To Do is rolled out.
Note: You can also view and manage your tasks on the go by installing the To Do app.
Manage all tasks
The To Do page includes four default tasks lists, plus optional tasks lists and any tasks lists that you create.
My Day is a Smart List that can help you track the tasks that you want to get done today. It's empty at the start of each day by default, so that you can organize your day by adding tasks to it. You add existing tasks to My Day by right-clicking a task and choosing Add to My Day , or by dragging a task from any other tasks list to My Day. Tasks that appear in My Day are kept in their original list.
Note: My Day is cleared at midnight every night. Tasks that appear in My Day are stored in other tasks lists, so they aren't deleted when My Day is cleared.
Important is a Smart List that includes tasks that you've marked as important. You can mark a task as important by right-clicking it and selecting Mark as important , or by selecting the star icon next to it.
Planned is a Smart List that includes tasks that have a reminder or due date and have not been marked as complete. Tasks that you create with a reminder or due date will automatically appear in this list. The only way to add tasks to this list is to assign a reminder or due date to an existing task.
Tasks is the list where new tasks are stored by default.
Note: The Flagged Email list is available only on accounts that are hosted by Microsoft, such as accounts that end in Outlook.com, Hotmail.com, or Live.com. Also accounts from private domains that are hosted by Microsoft.
You can add new tasks by selecting a tasks list, then choosing the plus sign next to Add a task and entering a description of your task. If you add a task to a Smart List, the task will be saved in Tasks and linked to the Smart List you were in when you created it.
Note: You can't create new tasks in Planned. To add a task to Planned, add a reminder or due date to an existing or new task.
Select a task in any list to see all of the available options for that task. You can do things like add additional steps, add them to My Day, make them repeating, add a due date or reminder, and add a note.
Drag a message to create a task
Use the My Day pane to create a task from a message.
Note: The My Day pane is a new feature that might not yet be available in your account.
Go to Mail in Outlook.com.
Find the message that you want to create a task from in the message list.
Select and drag the message to the To Do tab in the My Day pane.
Drag a task to add it to your calendar
Use the My Day pane to create an event in your calendar from a task.
Go to Calendar in Outlook.com.
Find the task that you want to create a calendar event from.
Select and drag the task to when you want it on your calendar.
Attach a file to a task
You can add one or more files to a task.
Select the task you want to add a file to.
Choose Add a file from the task details pane.
Browse to and select the file you want to add.
Note: You can attach more than one file to a task, but can add them only one at a time.
Share a tasks list
You can't share individual tasks, but you can share tasks lists that you create.
Go to To Do.
Right-click the tasks list you want to share and select Share list .
Select Create invitation link .
Select Copy link .
Go to Mail and create a new message. Address it to the people you want to share the list with, paste the link in the body of the message and add any information you want, then send the message.
Note: You can send the link to anyone, but only people who have a Microsoft account (such as Outlook.com, Hotmail.com, or Live.com) will be able to connect to the shared list.
After you've shared a tasks list, you can right-click it and select Sharing options to get the invitation link again. Select Sharing options then More options to stop sharing the list, or prevent people who haven't already joined the list from joining.
Creating and managing tasks lists
In addition to the default tasks lists, you can create and manage lists to organize your tasks into.
Create a new tasks list.
Select New list in the navigation pane.
Enter a name for your new list.
Press Enter to save your new list.
Right-click a list in the navigation pane to Share , Duplicate , or Delete it.
What else do I need to know about To Do?
You can switch back to the classic Tasks by selecting The new Tasks toggle at the top of the To Do page.
If you've switched to classic Tasks, you can switch back by selecting the Try the beta toggle at the top of the Tasks page.
