How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

My Tasks view

in Planner (tasks.microsoft.com) there is a "My Tasks" button that shows everything assigned and its current progress status.

Can this be built in to teams?

As i am working on multiple projects it would be good to see what needs doing without having to look through 20 tabs

        Hmm - installing yet another app (the Zoom one) seems to have fixed the ... menu for the time being. Now Planner shows in it, plus a couple of others I'd previously tried.

        So, for those who want a "My Tasks" view, install the Planner app from the Teams store "for you". Then use the "..." menu on the left of the screen to access it. You get all of your tasks in one place then

        The planner app disappears for me from the ... menu that shows beneath Activity, Chat, Teams & Files buttons.

        If I go to "More apps", find "Planner" and then click the "Available" hyperlink that shows next to "Add for you" then I'll get to the Planner interface within teams and can see My Tasks, etc across all of the plans.

        However once I close out then it's gone from the ... menu again. It was there the other day and staying put. Sounds like a new bug that's just cropped up (19th Feb 2019) :(

        My Tasks should be a main navigation button like Activity, Chat, Teams, Meetings, Calls, Files. Productivity/Collaboration software should easily and quickly show you what you need to get done to help the team.

        On the overview my tasks, I would perfer to have rather a table view with as much actions on one screen as possible. Today an action takes too much space on the screen.
        I look at my actions, I do not see that the task is assigned to me.
        On the mobile version, this is even more important, as the screen is smaller.
        I need to have a quick overview on what needs to be done

        Currently, Planner tasks added in Teams only appear in the My Task view of Planner. There is no way to know which team the tasks are associated. Even sorting by Plan doesn't indicate the actual Plan/Group/Team name. Can the team name be added to the tasks in Planner?

        I have just started using Teams and yes a centralised task menu would be amazing, Previously I have worked with a system called Midas, this system was one of the best I have ever used and provided a centralised diary system. When I logged in every morning I knew exactly what I had to do and prioritise my tasks accordingly ensuring everything was completed on time, working clever resulting in less working hours and providing better results

        When adding multiple planner boards to a single team, it would be good to see my tasks overview in teams, in addition it would also be very useful to be able to select 2 or more team members and see their tasks across plans/teams

        And for some reason in planner I cannot edit my tasks. Have to go back to the planner tab in teams!

        Much needed addition, also notification when a task assigned by you / to you is completed

        We need to have the ability to see all of our own tasks in one place. Currently we have to check everything we are involved in and the only workaround is embedding a website that actually shows those items. It would be more beneficial to have something that is more integrated with Teams. Most of the time it is used in the browser with the embedded site as the portal to immediately click over to the browser.

        In Office 365 Planner there is the "My Tasks" menu item which lists all assigned tasks including those set via Teams (Planner tabs).

        Please add similar functionality to Teams. Suggest on the left hand side so that all tasks are shown regardless of team or channel.
