We use Microsoft To Do.  We also use Teams.  I'm not able to add my To Do into Teams, I have to use Planner.  This shows my To Do lists and Tasks, however, with lots less features.

 

  1. I can create a new list in Planner/Teams, but cannot share it with users.  I have to open To Do in browser, then click Share.  Why can't I share it from within Teams?
  2. I can add a new task in my new list in Teams, but cannot assign that task to anyone.  I have to open in in To Do and assign it to someone.  Why can't I do this in Teams?
  3. There are no reminders, no options to add file attachments or notes to the task in Teams, but can do so in To Do.  Again, why?
  4. If I open Planner from browser, none of my lists that show up in Teams show up there.  Beyond confusing.  They are only in To Do.  

Without these basic features, no one can use it in Teams and it's supposed to support all Microsoft Apps.

@Mercedes Green I agree. It’s stupefying!
