M365 Changelog: Multiple-Linked Entity Support in Microsoft To Do

MC405566 – In Microsoft To Do, Microsoft surfaces tasks from different sources to provide users with a single place for all of their tasks. One aspect Microsoft wants to ensure is that tasks that are captured will always be linked back to the source of where they were created.

Microsoft currently have the provision to support a single link. For tasks created in Planner, To Do provides the link to the Tasks app in Teams.

As part of this feature, Microsoft will now support multiple links, so users can open Planner supported tasks in Planner Web or in the Tasks app in Teams.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93396

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rollout in late July and expect to complete rollout by early August.

How this will affect your organization:

Microsoft To Do users will see two links for planner supported tasks, one to open the tasks in the Teams App (primary link) and another link to the Planner plan.
