Add reminders that can be entered via chat text
Implement slash-commands (like Sl*ck) for reminders
Display reminders in the calendar so we can manage them easily.
Combine reminders with mentions so colleagues can be reminded.
Fun item: Reminders are like any chat message and can use stickers or emoji etc ... ; we can have Office Drama reminders :-)

Can't agree more - having slash commands in the Send message area to achieve these simple tasks is a must have for productivity. Now that Planner and ToDo are integrated - it should be made easier to leverage that integration via slash commands.

If you're comfortable to create a Power Automate flow, this could be a solution for you:

I still don't understand why this is not an added feature yet. This should be a standard OOB feature. Switching back to Slack.

one of the missing features, why we have not yet fully migrated to Microsoft Teams.
Very important feature, please add
MS, please add this feature to set reminders. You are making people suffer with opening slack as well. Shouldn't be too hard to implement, come on microsoft
I use Teams for work but I have to use Slack for reminders as well. I am wondering why it's not added to Teams yet, such a useful tool and shouldn't be that hard to implement.
Adding a chat comment (with link to the whole conversation) as a To Do item, for myself or others - That would be a perfect efficiency improvement!
This would be SUPER useful for my teams and channels!

Please add it, it's really important.
Please add this. It would be super helpful and help get all the people I work with off of Slack so I don't need to bounce between two chat apps.
Please add this functionality!
I find myself checking messages to make sure I haven't missed something time sensitive. When it's not a time sensitive message, but it is important I'd love to be able to mark it as "Unread" or make a reminder for it so I don't accidentally check it off my mental list and forget about it.
If this would be similar functionality to that, then +! from me!

Having this would enable us to have follow-ups without using external tools/windows. Right now opening additional source (onenote/wiki/meeting notes/...) is mandatory and eyescan to review if any items show up.
I imagine that having /remind nextMeeting/THU 8:00 "revisit the discussion on XYZ" would be super useful
PLEASE add this. It was the single most useful item in the slack chats I used to use. I regularly find myself searching for my notes or through teams messages trying to find my to do.
I can only add that I too believe this feature to be "super needed" on channel posts and chats both.

Just copy it from slack please, super needed.
When is this feature expected to be implemented and released? Badly needed.
