I'm new to Teams, and am looking for the best way to create weekly to-do lists for my teams. These should ideally be visible only to those with tasks assigned in each list, though it's no big deal I suppose if they're visible to all members of the team.
What are the suggestions?

@adam deltinger Thanks Adam for your suggestion.
We have a hierarchical structure, whereby 3 managers have subordinates, who in turn have subordinates. I have created buckets for each of the managers. Is there any way of creating sub-buckets to these, so that each manager's subordinates can have a separate bucket?

@njek20 The vision with Office 365 and Teams in particular is flat structure and sharing. So requirements involving hierarchies and confidentiality are going to be tough to implement.
Private channels are in the works, but at this point we don't know exactly what they will look like.
I would also have suggested Planner, which has 3 hierarchy levels: bucket, task, checklist. You could use the copy feature to duplicate a task for the next week. Assignments are at the task level.
For stricter permission management, you would have to use multiple Planner plans, which sounds complicated in your case. It might be better to use another application (To Do or SharePoint Tasks list), and display it as a tab in the channels.

@njek20 Buckets would be the top level to match your line managers, then tasks at the next layer are assigned to one or more users. Each task can then have a checklist of specific actions to be checked. You should have enough layers there to meet your needs.

@Chris Webb Thanks Chris, this seems very interesting, but I'm afraid my experience with SharePoint is about as limited as my Teams experience! Therefore, would you be able to run through this in a bit more step-by-step detail for me? Thanks again!
