Planner: Application Permissions in Graph API

Hi all,

I'm wondering if there's any improvement for Planner management in sight? 

Currently code-driven provisioning of a Teams with a Planner tab is quite a hassle as Planner doesn't support Application Permissions in the Graph API, so we have to switch to a delegated User permission to drive the creation. To properly scale to hundreds of teams the provisioning user then needs to be removed from the Planner. If any sync or update later on needs to be done, it needs to run in a user context again, i.e. in the case of a service account, adding the account to the corresponding group, working on the planner data, then removing the user.

Any insights appreciated. Thanks in advance,
