Set reminders on conversations and replies within a conversation.
Problem: You create a conversation to do something (such as create a new icon) and the team member responds they will get to it later, but there is no way to go back to see what conversations require follow up.
Possible solution: set reminders on a conversation or a reply within a conversation for individual team members or the whole team with a certain date or time.

We need a native reminder function (something similar to the "@RememberThis" bot, but expanded) - Needs to have local timezone support, infinite reminders (not limited to 7 days in the future), recurring reminders, and ability to remind self, channel or team - @Remind Me in 3 hours, @Remind Channel at 7:00 am MDT, @Remind Team on Jan 31 at 9:00 am LocalTime
We desperately need the ability to set reminders/flag for later messages in conversations tabs - and the ability to do it as many times as we need in a conversation. Add to Tasks, Add to Planner, Flag for Later... any of the basic Outlook functions!
Integrate this idea with Planner?
This would be an awesome feature. I was going to suggest a 'for action' marker (like the High Importance marker) that could later be marked as complete. Adding a reminder/deadline feature would be even better.
This would be a critical feature.

Perhaps there should be a "flag for follow-up" option on a message?
Or perhaps...have an option on a message to create a planner task from it?
Tell me if you think those are dumb ideas Justin...I don't mind :)
