Add a remind me option
Please add a "remind me" option for each message. Sometime I can read a message but cannot respond to it right now. So my goal here is to set a reminder to respond to the message later.
It would be fantastic if any thread (or personal chat) could be flagged for remind me with 1, 4, 8 hours or days plus the ability to set an exact time. My slack users are pointing out they already have this. This would generate a fresh reminder in activities or chats.

This is basic, an absolute must.This is the single issue that makes me wish my company stayed with Slack

I'd like to see it work the other way as well, the ability to flag a message to which you have not received a reply rather than having to ask again, some kind of alert to the receiver to say "oi! reply to me".
Some serious reminder functionality would really help through a workday with lots of calls.
This is the only point that prevents us from using this tool.

If you want Microsoft to implement this feature, please vote for it at "User Voice" (multiple links):
@Tom Morgan created an official Teams App called "RememberThis", which proved that this could be done (as of Dec 2019 the app is still v1.0.0, so it is rather limited, but it works):

There are a lot of similar requests, would like to see the consolidated. Also, I have lost track of so many conversations lately :(

What about the ability to link a teams message with a todo in the todo.microsoft.com app ? For example : I have a message in Teams, I want to remember to respond to it or to read it, it could be good to say "create a todo and remind me at ...".

This is a big issue for our company. The inability to "flag" a conversation to remind us to return to it later is really hurting our ability to use Teams.
