I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.
Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.
Hope that helps! :-)

Using teams today for the first time, and got an assignment for next week. Wanted to set a reminder for some time friday but a quick google search brought me here. I find the suggested workaround a joke. And to date there is no option in the store for this either.
C'mon, this request is over 2 years old but apparently a feature a lot of people would like (just like reminders in Slack and Trello or Snooze in Google Inbox/Gmail).
