Outlook Tasks Integration
Need to have a way to integrate with Outlook tasks, or have task management within teams that operates like Outlook tasks allowing you to get reminders for due tasks, view your tasks list etc.

Another basic function that makes Teams roll and use pathetically failure prone. Microsoft: where's the middle finger icon when you need it
To ensure users are using Teams as their main collaboration and organization tool, it's essential to have some sort of task management integrated (e.g. flag a post in Teams as a task which is then also manageable from Outlook).

Definitely need some Outlook task integration. Like being to able to flag a message/conversation with a task flag that then appears in Outlook as well.
Planner integration is handy but not related to this specific request.

I think that offering an option on the Ellipse menu to create an Outlook Task (or Microsoft To-Do) is an essential feature.
With all the back and forth that can happen with Teams Conversations, I find that it can be very easy for an important part of a conversation to get lost in the ongoing stream of other Conversations. The ability to create a personal Task to help keep on top of commitments would be key.
I also think offering the ability to flag a Conversation would also be helpful for the same reasons, especially if there was a way to filter a view on flagged Conversations. This is different than the Save option you offer.

Hi Microsoft, is this something that you're looking at?

I think this is regarding Microsoft To Do with integration with Microsoft Teams.
Currently, users can find tasks that are assigned to them using the Planner app within Teams, but what about personal To Do's? Currently there is no To Do integration.
