For groups, you can share the to-do list with the group, and turn any message into a to-do list for the group; you can also initiate a vote in the group and directly take related actions based on the voting results , Such as automatically creating calendar items. Finally, Teams will also add a “Dashboard view”, allowing you to see all the documents, photos, links, calendar events, etc. shared with the group in one place.
