Flag message for follow-up and automatically add them to to to-do
Currently each message has:
* Mark as unread
* Copy link
* Immersive Reader
options available in the upper-right corner. I'd suggest adding another.
Please could you add a "flag for follow-up" option. Clicking it should add it to a list of flagged messages that are exposed somewhere within Teams however the real value would come from giving us the option to have the message appear in Microsoft To-Do, thus the experience would be exactly the same as adding flagged messages from Outlook (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/using-microsoft-to-do-with-flagged-email-f90c37b0-4453-4756-a6d5-e2ef8d33b395). When someone marks the task in To-Do as complete then it would unflag the message in Teams (again, exactly the same as the Outlook experience).

I am constantly copying and pasting key points into To Do for later, as I have a LOT of messages coming through for project work and support tasks. Making this easier would be a huge benefit to Teams. As To Do is the first and last place I check every day due to it's increasing usefulness.
I agree 100%. It's a real weakness in TEAMS, in my opinion, not to be able to flag something for follow up. Marking it as a favorite doesn't remind you to do anything on a specific date.
I like this. I'd just like saved messages to get their own list in the To Do app, just like flagged emails and Planner tasks do today.
