How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Create Planner Task from a Teams conversation

I would like to easily create a planner Task form a Teams conversation.
e.g.: @Microsoft task: Enable Planner Task creation from a Teams conversation

A Suggestion should help to set additional information e.g.: due date
By default the bucket should match the channel

        I agree. Most of the chats are requests for something. I wish I could link the conversation to a task like I could in our previous suite. Please, do it.
        Thanks

        I agree that this would help me in my manager role to track and monitor the varied conversations/channel that I participate in.

        Looking forward to this feature.

        Agreed - tasks come from conversations in Teams all the time. A simple click to add to Planner is an immediate need!

        This is a very obvious integration idea, and would be of tremendous value.

        I think this feature is so obvious that it should have been integrated from the very beginning

        I'd say please integrate planner with conversations:

        - @Planner - creates task, Creating a task in planner posts a message in conversations
        - Commenting on a task in planner adds replies to a message in conversations
        - Status from planner reflects as message color or corner tag in conversations

        I want the function to register a task by right clicking on a conversation.
