Do team members need to be on Project or can they see their tasks on SharePoint?

Hello, I'm a project manager, we use Office 365 - SharePoint, Teams, etc. Our projects are multi-step often with multiple sub-projects. I believe Project is what I need to manage the timelines, etc.
My question is about the team members, do they also need Project or is there a way to set it up so that their assigned tasks show up in SharePoint on Tasks List or some other page?
We love working with SharePoint, but Tasks List is not robust enough to handle these projects, but I don't think the team members need the level of detail (and complications) in Project.
I appreciate advice. Thank you

    Hi @Karen G

    If your task is not complex, for Teams member, you could add the Task app to Microsoft Teams. The Shared plans section of Tasks shows you plans that have been added to channels in Teams. You can then work with the plan as usual in Board, Chart, or Schedule view, or in the List view unique to the Tasks app. For more details about task app in Microsoft Teams, you could learn it from:
