Hi, what is the best way to set up reminders with dates & times within teams? I used planner but I can’t set a time just a date. And I don’t seem to get a notification when a task is over due from within Teams e.g. in the Activity section. Help! I’d like to set personal reminders (only I can see) and for other teams members.

Currently cannot do this out of the box. Would have to use a 3rd party app or create your own reminder bot.

You can always use a Sharepoint task list instead of planner and set a simple reminder flow / workflow for it. Also PowerApps tab with a UI contect to a list. Multiple ways but I unfortunately nothing built in and easy yet like slack has.

There is a uservoice for reminders on messages and a few other in there: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16936801-would-like-the-abilit...

There is as suggested the “save” message feature but that really isn’t s reminder.

The lack of integration of calendars with teams, and inability for Planner to show times is driving me absolutely batty. This is way too complicated for something that should be seamless.
