  1. Reminder Function for Tasks in Teams Planner needed (for specific time)

    I need to be able to define a specific reminder time whenever I set up a task in order to be alerted exactly when the task is due.

  2. Notifications popup through teams for planner tasks

    When creating a planner event, the only way to get notifications is either through email or logging into a separate app. I would like to be able to set a timestamp for the task to start (not just a date) and be able to receive an alert on my desktop teams app I am logged into so I can be alerted when a task begins as well as when it is about to expire along with the past due alerts.

  4. The notice should be there when any plan is deleted or edited.

    We are not receiving any notifications when any plan is getting deleted. This should be there to make admins aware of the changes.

  5. 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.

  6. Add task creator to task card

    Add option to add 'task creator' to task card so that you do not have to search the comments to see who created the task.

  8. Setting the notification timing in planner.

    Setting the notification timing in planner is needed. It would be useful to change time of receiving the message. Usually it is sent by noon and I would like to be notified much earlier instead. For instance : if I have a visit today at 9 am . it is useless if I receive the message at noon instead of being notified at 6 am to be ready to do the visit at 9.am When I received the notification at noon as planner does now, I'll be late to the visit in case I forget it.

  10. Customize task reminders

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

  12. Email notifications that only go to the people in the task

    Emails go to the entire Office 365 group when someone replies to a task in planner. A way to set it so it only goes to the users in the task.

  13. Enable notifications for adding a note or comenting a Task in MS Teams - Planner.

    It would be cool if you could enable settings for the MS Planner in Teams. When I add a task for somebody and afterward add a comment or a note, then the person wont be notified. Please integrate this option.

  15. Planner Notification

    Planner not sending notifications when the state, comments , priority etc. are changed. It only sends notification to any new person that is added, which is useless because everyone else on the task doesn't know what new comments are.

  17. Send notification to newly added team member at the time of they added.

    it is observe that information related to given task was not shown to all team member except assign member, and also this plan was not shown to all team member in planner hub.
    This plan shows only when the task is assigned to particular member.
    So, i suggest you to send notification for newly added team member. when this notification given to the member then plan will show in planner hub. after that any member can see this information through planner hub.

  18. Membership rights

    Create leveled membership rights (i.e. admin/owner and member) so that admins have the ability to receive notifications of all activity of tasks within a planner. For example, if a task has been deleted, modified, or created then a notification is sent to the admins with who changed what and at what time/date. For member rights, they receive notifications only pertaining to tasks assigned to them.

  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 any user, regardless of their email client, to receive planner notifications

    We are forced to use GSuite for our email and we are using SPO with the standalone SPO Plan 1 licensing. It appears that none of our users can get Planner notifications when a task is assigned/upcoming/past due because we don't use Outlook. Remove this restriction and allow notifications to be sent to any email address regardless of the client used. We currently receive SP alerts without issue.
