How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Add team wide reminders

We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

For example:
- Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
- Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
- etc....

        This is a huge USP slack has over Teams. You should consider implementing this asap.
        Any new update on the review?

        Teams is useless without this feature. This is also the biggest drawback to using MS products. They just can't bring features to users fast enough.

        T-Bot says

        "As of right now, there's no way to create tasks, to-do lists, or reminders in Teams. Don't worry, though, that's coming soon.

        In the meantime, if you want to keep track of an important message, click Save this message saved icon next to the message. That way, you can find it later on in your saved messages (just click your profile picture then select Saved)."

        Yes, please add. Such a valuable feature that is one of the biggest surprises to users converting to slack.

        Can we expand this beyond just team-wide reminders? One of my favorite Slack features is clicking on a message and using the "Remind me in X minutes/hours/tomorrow" option. Then those reminders would come from the bot. You can even just do something like /remind @me to do X at 3 pm and not have it related to any type of message or team. Very handy

        this is why I came here... Is Slack really the only one that can handle this task?

        We have been asking for this for 2 years and it still doesn't exist. Just go back to using Slack folks.

        A simple reminder feature like the one described above would be terrific!

        Would love to see this feature in teams too! Definitely miss having it in slack. :(

        Is this ever happening? I am ready to switch back to slack because of this

      • Estolpe commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I used "/remind me to do this task tomorrow at 09:00" or "/dnd" for do not distrurb in slack a lot, really sad to see this still missing in MS teams, hope this usability feature will get on the roadmap. Can't even find a bot that does this.

        Is there a way not only to have those reminders, but to get them to pop up as outlook reminders as well.
