Welcome to the Microsoft 365 Newest Updates series. Every week, we do our best to sift through the most important Message Center updates into an easy-to-digest format so you’re always up-to-date.

With that out of the way, let’s get started:

“Tasks by Planner and To Do” app name to be shortened to “Tasks” within Teams

We are finally at the last stage of merging the Tasks by Planner and To Do apps. Starting in early May with a completed rollout targeted for mid-May, in Teams your Tasks by Planner and To Do app will be shortened simply to Tasks. All functionality will remain the same, this is just a name change.


Teams: Create tasks from Teams chats or channel posts

Associated Roadmap ID: 68696

You’ll now be able to create tasks directly from chat messages or channel posts in Teams. By clicking on “More Options” and selecting “Create Task”, you can create a task that you can track in the Tasks app which includes a link back to the original chat or channel post.

That’s it for the updates of note this week. See you again next week for more updates and changes!
