Message Summary

Updated May 07, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Reminder: Last year we announced the public preview of Tasks in Teams. At the same time, we also announced the planned three-stage naming sequence for how the app name would appear in Teams.

This update reflects the final stage where we shorten Tasks by Planner and To Do to simply Tasks for simplicity, brevity and to better reflect the app combining the To Do and Planner experiences. You’ll still be able to find the app by searching Planner or To Do and this will not impact the functionality of the app.

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this out in mid-May (previously early May) and expect to complete by the end of May (previously mid-May).

How this will affect your organization

Users will see the Tasks by Planner and the To Do app names in Teams shortened to Tasks.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this shortening of the name and update your training and documentation as appropriate.Blog
