While working with Sandra Mahan the other day, she happened to notice a feature in Microsoft Teams that shows you all the Planner Tasks that have been assigned to you. The best thing is… it’s automatic! Here’s what it looks like…
If you go into Microsoft Teams and click on the Chat icon in the left-side navigation, you should find an entry for Planner. When you open that chat, you’ll see a list of all the Planner Task notifications that are generated when someone assigns a Task to you:
In the tabs at the top of the chat, you also have the My Tasks tab, which is very useful. It will show you all the Tasks that are assigned to you across all the Microsoft Teams workspaces that you’re a part of:
I love this feature, as it prevents you from having to check multiple places to keep track of what’s up next on your list of things to do.
