  1. Notify people assigned to a Task when it is changed/updated or when a comment is captured

    A colleague and I own a task, however when I added a comment and changed the due date on it, I was the only one receiving an email about it, which is really pointless given I know what changes I made and would rather the other people assigned to it received that email/notification/update... Please can this be changed?

  3. Integrate Planner Notifications with Teams Notifications

    Allow users to choose for planner notifications to show up in Teams rather than in Email. We are using Teams for all inter-office communication and I receive notifications from Teams when I have a message there, but we still receive notifications in our email inboxes when we have a task assigned to us. If all notifications could happen in one location, ie. teams, it would be much simpler for everyone.

  4. The creator or all assigned members of a task in Teams should get notifications for comments, progress changes etc

    The notifications around Microsoft Teams Tasks do not align with how useful this app can be.. as the creator of a task I want to be notified via email preferably if somebody has commented on the task, made progress, completed etc. If I'm assigned to a collaboration task I also want to be notified when comments are made etc.

  5. Give an option for a reminder

    We are using Planner for a Kanban-Board in our Team. Tasks, which need to be discussed, in our regular meeting, are marked as "tbd".

    Some tasks are taking a long time to be finished, so that an automated reminder (7 | 14 | 21 | etc. days) could help, to inform about the status, when the task wasn`t set to "tbd" for a long time.

  6. Customize task reminders

    It would be wonderful if the planner task reminders could be customized as they are in Outlook at this time.

  7. Planner Comments should be sent to people assigned to the Card

    I certainly appreciate that sending comments to everyone in the group is a bad idea. Why not send the comment only to whoever is Assigned to that card.

    This current solution where only people that have made comments get notices makes the comments completely unusable for communicating to people that are responsible for the card. For example, I’d like the ask the person assigned to the card, what their progress is? They don’t get the message any longer. The only people that get the message are people that have made comments.

    Here is another example of a problem with this.…

  8. Tasks notification configuration

    Notifications should have much more configuration options.
    The amount of notifications is growing as we use the Planner more, and we need to build filters in Outlook to maskout some of the Planner's notifications....

  9. Email notifications for Exchange OnPrem users

    Currently, if a user mailbox is in Exchange OnPremise they sometimes don't get the email notification letting them know that a task was assigned to them. Its a random issue, the user can receive 1 out of 3 assigned tasks notifications. Microsoft say this is a behavior by design, it is not an issue. This isn't ideal for a hybrid environment.

  10. Notification reminders for tasks

    It will be good to have notification / reminders time period customization so that team can adjust it to meet project specific requirements. Currently, there is only 7 day option but ideally user/owner should be able to edit the timeline when system should push these notifications out for tasks.

  11. Planner task notification improvements

    There needs to be significant improvement in the notifications within planner. There should be an option (probably the default) of a daily digest email to reduce the number of notifications. Also need more granular control over who receives notifications, for e.g. all users, assigned users, users who have commented, specific users etc.

  12. Make Change Notifications Clickable to see Changes

    When I open Planner, I often see a notification popup that says "While you were away there were X changes" but then there's no way to click on the notification to see which changes so the message is fairly useless. Please provide insight into the changes, such as a click through to a changelog where the user can click on individual entries to open that card to see the changes.

  15. Due date highlight indicator update

    Today, if a task is due, the due date will get a red highlight, but it only happens after the due date has past. I'd suggest having multiple colors to denote different ranges. For example:
    * Red if the current date is past the due date
    * Orange if the current date is equal to or 2 days before the due date
    * Yellow if the current date is between 5 or 2 days before the due date
    Note: days should be business days only; not calendar days.

  17. Notifications: Planner Task notifications should to send to all the member once the task is assigned and also when commented

    Notifications: Planner Task notifications should to send to all the member once the task is assigned and also when commented

    When task is assigned to 20 members initial notifications is sent to their mailbox. But later when commented no one receives notifications. Planner Tasks are also sometimes used for project update and their progress. Hence its always recommended that notifications goes to all the members to whom the task is assigned to.

    With Regards,

  18. People not assigned to tasks get e-mails for all tasks in the plan

    How can the e-mails be limited to only people assigned to the task?

  19. Put the name of the plan in task assignment email

    Currently when user receives task assignment email it says "You've been assigned a task!" in the subject then it has the task name and a button to open that task in Planner. Could you please put the plan name someplace in that email. We have alot of templated plans where the tasks are the same and they get these tasks in several plans at once. It would make the users really happy if they can easily see in the email what plan it is and not have to open the actual task in planner. Other notification emails like late tasks,…

  20. Allow ability to set members notifications for assigned task - Team project leaders should be able to force a notification.

    If we want to be able to confidently use Teams to assign tasks, project leaders should be able to force email notification as a means of confirming that the Team member has been notified. As it stands if someone turns off notification, members assigning the tasks do not know that the assigned person has notifications turned off.
