Chats that bring plans to life

Chats in Microsoft Teams help you get things done. Use instant polls1 to make quick decisions, assign tasks to help with chores at home, and block time for a group meetup—all without leaving your chats.

Manage group tasks

Create shared to-do lists in any group chat and manage tasks big and small together. Add new items to a list, assign tasks to others, set due dates, and check off completed items.
