Add team wide reminders
We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.
- Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
- Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
This feature is under review by the feature team. No new feedback at this time.
Teams is useless without this feature. This is also the biggest drawback to using MS products. They just can't bring features to users fast enough.

"As of right now, there's no way to create tasks, to-do lists, or reminders in Teams. Don't worry, though, that's coming soon.
In the meantime, if you want to keep track of an important message, click Save this message saved icon next to the message. That way, you can find it later on in your saved messages (just click your profile picture then select Saved)."

Really need this feature!
+1 on this feature!
Yes, please add. Such a valuable feature that is one of the biggest surprises to users converting to slack.
Can we expand this beyond just team-wide reminders? One of my favorite Slack features is clicking on a message and using the "Remind me in X minutes/hours/tomorrow" option. Then those reminders would come from the bot. You can even just do something like /remind @me to do X at 3 pm and not have it related to any type of message or team. Very handy
this is why I came here... Is Slack really the only one that can handle this task?

We have been asking for this for 2 years and it still doesn't exist. Just go back to using Slack folks.
A simple reminder feature like the one described above would be terrific!
agree ... would make the product perfect for me.
Would love to see this feature in teams too! Definitely miss having it in slack. :(

This is much needed - the T-Bot should just be able to do this easily

Is this ever happening? I am ready to switch back to slack because of this
I used "/remind me to do this task tomorrow at 09:00" or "/dnd" for do not distrurb in slack a lot, really sad to see this still missing in MS teams, hope this usability feature will get on the roadmap. Can't even find a bot that does this.
Is there a way not only to have those reminders, but to get them to pop up as outlook reminders as well.

This would be a very useful feature - reminders are a must have to compete with slack. Even Discord has options such as reminderme bot to achieve similar functionality.

This is a feature I'd really like to see in teams. Not having it is a pain in the butt currently.

True. Zoom.ai is not smart enough to remind eveyone in a channel, but only myself.

On Slack, my team uses SlackBot to remind the team to update the progress on their VSTS work items to keep the burndown up to date. Would be handy to set reminders Mon-Fri at a specific time.
