Fantastical doesn't provide a super detailed task management system, but working alongside calendar and other applications when using the Vision Pro, it may be minimal enough. Overall, the whole app already provides a nice experience on Apple devices, it should be no different here.
Microsoft 365 is a really handy tool to have since it gives you multiple platforms to work on such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more. Those working from home are most likely to use these apps and now it can be done from the comfort of your sofa.
With the Vision Pro, you may be able to have multiple tools open at once or to use alongside video meetings, for learning, taking notes, and much more. Microsoft 365 is a diverse set of tools so there will be something for everyone.

Slack is a well-known team communication tool, it provides a space to keep everyone in the loop, hold meetings, and much more. You can create Huddles to chat with specific team members, share screens, record videos, and much more
With Vision Pro, this may look like a big canvas of team meetings, with the ability to see everyone clearly, and messaging abilities. You will also be able to use Slack alongside other applications and tools whilst working and moving around your space.

Apple Freeform on the Vision Pro will look and feel great in that big space in front of your eyes. You will be able to brainstorm with teams whilst on Facetime, draw, write, edit, and create action plans for projects.
When considering what this may look like on the Vision Pro, we imagine an extendable canvas space for you to use whilst moving around, or from the comfort of your own home. Kind of like you are drawing on a whiteboard, except it's digital.
Apple Freeform is all round a great productivity tool made for Apple devices. The ability to Facetime and work on an infinite space makes it an essential tool for creating and brainstorming ideas.
Everyone who owns an Apple device will have used Apple Notes before. On the Vision Pro, this may look like an enlarged version of what you already see, giving you space to write more, organize better, and be comfortable whilst doing so.
Your Apple Notes will sync across your iCloud so you can access it through multiple devices. This means you can take notes on the go on your mobile and then view them later on with your Vision Pro.
With Apple Notes you can organize with tags and folders to create a system, you can also use filters to search for older notes or a genre of notes you have written. Add photos and sketches to notes to further explore creativity.
The Vision Pro is a pricey tool at $3,499 to purchase the digital headset. That being said, it's the first Apple device like this and opens up a whole new world of productivity.
Considering the cost of a Vision Pro, we would suggest utilizing what you have got first, and then seeing if a Vision Pro would then further enhance your productivity and if it is worth it.
Of course, if the cost doesn't bother you, a Vision Pro will provide a different level and experience to productivity when working from home and carrying out tasks.
But in terms of whether you need one or should buy one, that's down to personal preference, cost, and if you think another tool on top of your mobile, laptop, and watch will make your current productivity better.
