Add "Create task" action for posts in Microsoft Teams
Add a "create task" action for posts in Microsoft Teams. For a post, when you click on the ellipsis and "More actions", the Planner "create task" action opens a card with the content of the post as the task description. The card lets you add a few other details for the task and if you save, would reply to the post with a link to the task just created.
The card should be kept simple. Focus is on quickly capture the content of a post into a task and make it visible that a task has been created. The details can always be changed in Planner.

Create a new task would be so valuable when writing up meeting notes / status updates etc.. Ideally, this could form as part of the post itself so that you could actually have a section of to do's easily seen by all.
Why isn't more people voting for this! We need this - you receive a post and you have an action - click on the ellipsis and CREATE A TASK. Why @microsoft have not thought of this is beyond me!
Now there is a solution for this.

Does anyone know if it's possible to set-up a 'Teams Bot' to do this action? So I could @PlannerBot within a Reply and it would take that whole thread and link it to a new Planner task?
