  2. Email notification should tell you which Plan/Bucket it came from

    Email that says "You've been assigned a task!" should tell you which Plan and Bucket the task lives in.

    The only way to find out is to click the link. Need faster way to scan/understand the nature of the task, in order to decide the urgency.

  3. Remove e-mail notification when commenting on a task

    When commenting on a task in Planner, a notification is automatically sent from my e-mail to the other participants on the task. Please remove this or make it optionally. My understanding is that use of Teams and Planner should reduce the use of emails.

  7. Planner Bot, Notification System

    Hello,

    I believe that a bot system, much like the flow bot, or any other bot, would greatly enhance the notification system of planner. Instead of getting group email notifications, a Planner bot could create a "chat" and ring notifications that way. It seems like Microsoft would like for people to stay inside of Teams, instead of Outlook so, the Outlook notification system does not make too much sense to me.

    Thank you for your time,
    Matt

  9. Add "Due Time" to deadlines.

    We really need a time option on the due date. Without that, we probably can't use Planner and will have to continue using Trello, which is too bad considering we're moving everything over to 365 since everything works so well together.

  10. Allow variable notification intervals.

    I would like to set reminder emails periodically at intervals I choose. Like 30 days, 15 days, before the due date. Set more than one notification per task.

  12. Can we have or add additional "tabs" for classifiying our planner actions?

    We would like to have additional color tabs available for classifying our planner actions - either already available or where we can add additional ones if needed.

  15. 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.

  16. Email people assigned to a Task when it is changed/updated or when a comment is captured

    Me and a colleague 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... Please can this be changed?

  17. Notifications on all activities I´ve created

    As Project Manager I use Planner to create all activities needed in the Project. It means I can have perhaps 50 active activities which I have to know status on to report. Today I need to open every one to see if some changes have been made to the Checklist or if there are any comments made, I don´t get a notification on that since the task isn't assigend to me. But it´s created by me so there should be an option for settings to get notification on all changes made in an activity created by me. I don´t want…

  18. 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.

  19. "Nudge" Feature

    Unless notifications become more configurable, perhaps it might suffice to have a nudge feature where someone assigned to a task can "Nudge" another person to set off a notification to that user re: the task whenever they decide. This way they have the option to notify other assignees whether the change is to the task description, comments, check list, etc.

  20. Tracking progress of assigned tasks by team members

    When a task is assigned to two and more colleagues it is not possible to aumomatically inform who has finalized or closed it. Either is the complete task closed or in working progress.
    Is there any way to follow up the status of the assigned task by team member in order to know who has already fulfilled it and who not?
