I'd like to be able to mark a comment in a team or chat as a task, and then have a section (with Activity/Chat/Teams/Files) called Tasks that listed all of the things I've marked as tasks. You should only be able to assign tasks to yourself, but can be on yours or others' posts. Others should be able to see that you marked it as a task. You should also be able to mark as complete, and others should be able to see that as well.

This should be the same functionality with what we see with Microsoft Outlook. In Outlook you can right-click and email to assign follow-up by priority (today, tomorrow, this week, next week, custom), which then in turn puts it to your task log. Also have the option to set a reminder notification for that message. Make sure to have this option in Teams/Chat/Meetings
I’d also like Tasks, simple integration between Teams and Outlook or To-Do, to be able to create a task from a conversation
It would also be great to have it vice versa, e.g. setting tasks from within Teams. If you have an Email, you can make a task in Outlook out of it.
If you could flag messages in Teams as a task/todo, that would be amazing. We still use Outlook and not teams because of this great feature there.
I have been thinking along these lines as well except that I would like to be able to easily create a Planner task that is linked to the conversation.

It would be good if we can "tag" it with something similar to @ to create a task from a comment. Maybe #
I the Microsoft Teams versión, cannot view task tab. When task tab are available??
