Hi, Microsoft 365 Insiders! My name is Daniel Gomez and I’m a Principal Software Engineering Manager on the Planner team. I’m excited to share what we’ve been working on for the last year with our Loop partners. Now, you can render Planner plans in Loop by pasting the plan URL directly into any Loop page.

Keep your Planners inside the Loop for the web

If you’re actively using tasks.office.com (Planner), you can bring all your existing Planner board views into your Loop workspaces. You can copy and paste Planner links into your emails, whiteboards, Teams channels and chats, and start collaborating from there.

We’ll introduce new features like recurring tasks and new views to enhance your experience over time. We love your feedback, so send in your requests!

1. In the address bar in your browser, type tasks.office.com.

3. Copy the link to the plan from the address bar.
