hi All,

 

when I send an e-mail, I often " attach"  a reminder to it because I would like to be reminded of my e-mail in order to check if the recipient has gotten back to me. This allows me to shoot but not forget :)

 

As teams is gaining ground in our organisation I'm trying to find similar feature as I'm not able to keep track of posts by just scrolling through them every time... 

 

Any ideas how I can be reminded of posts I did?

 

Any feedback is welcome

 

Regards

charles

Hi!

There is a uservoice open for this functionality here

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18565507-add-reminders-that-ca...

Would recommend to vote to push it up the agenda. Slack has this you would expect Teams too. A workaround may be to use the save function. Select the ellipsis on a message and save it. This may achieve what you need.

Hope that answers your question

Best, Chris
If you're comfortable to create a Power Automate flow, this could be a solution for you:
