I am looking for a bot which will chase the task owner on the Planner tasks (in the planner that's embedded as part of teams) using messages / chat. I seem to remember that in Teams, bots cannot initiate conversations, not sure if that's still the case? Is this at all possible with any of the available bots?Anything in progress which will make this happen?

@Sayan Ghosh Seems like you need notifications for uncompleted tasks.

 

Try Azure Logic App & connect with Office365, refer https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/connectors/connectors-create-api-office365-outlook then sync all incomplete tasks at a regular schedule

then send an email or notify people supposed to complete the tasks. Hope this helps.
