Can I go back to Tasks?

Copper Contributor

Long story short, this unwelcomed, inconvenient, and unannounced switching of my tasks to the todo list has ruined my life (and I do not trust that I won't miss deadlines because where's my stuff?!!).

I feel the same way. I use my tasks as a running issues list, making notes on the follow-up steps that sometimes take months over the course of a project, and I truly dislike not being able to open up a task in its own window to take notes. And the To-Do List suggested due dates and reminders are terrible. If someone figures out how to revert, please let me know!

@jkott, I figured it out. Navigate to File >> Options >> Tasks.
uncheck "Open tasks in the To Do app"

How can I switch from Microsoft To Do app to Outlook tasks? - Microsoft Community

@Kenny460 Thank you!!  This is exactly what I was looking for.  The new To Do replacing my Tasks was making my life a living hell.

Hi, this forum post is a bit older so I'm not sure if this solution is outdated,

I'm trying to revert the new "planner" tab in microsoft teams to the old tasks list. I cannot locate "file" setting in teams to disable this. I may need some help since a lot of the solutions I'm finding online are for outlook and not teams.
