  3. Allow @ notifications for comments made within tasks

    With multiple tasks assigned to multiple employees, whenever comments are made within those tasks it is often very difficult to recognize that comments have been added without actually going in and opening that specific task. It would be very beneficial to have some type of notification system such as @ notifications to alert someone that a comment has been made especially for important comments. The notification wouldn't need to be communicated via email or anything like that, just a notification within Teams or in Planner that maybe highlights that task to the person being notified prompting them to open the…

  6. Ability to ping the person assigned to the task when a comment is added

    Ability to ping the person assigned to the task when a comment is added. Currently I believe it only goes to the person that created the task.

  7. Option to send e-mail updates from comments ONLY to group owners

    I have a planner for project management of support R&D for a broader group. I have members of the support function as Group Owners and the rest of the team as members. The support function staff want to use the comments section in the tasks for updates and communication, but we don't need these comments getting pushed to the rest of the team. Instead of asking the other team members to opt out of e-mail notifications, I'd like to limit the notifications to only the team owners.

  8. Email Notifications to Personal Inbox for "Guest" Members Outside your Organization

    We collaborate with a lot of clients "outside our organization". We create SharePoint sites and add them as "guest" members. We recently have been using Planner and adding a "Plan" to the SharePoint site page.

    However, we have found that when a task is created and then assigned to a guest, or a comment is added to a particular task, that user is not receiving an email to their personal inbox. It would be helpful for the site or plan "owner(s)" to have the ability to easily switch this option on, so that these guest users receive the notifications and…

  9. turn off emails for comments

    Give the option to turn off emails when you put comments in a task. The task auto emails the team on everything anyone puts in comments

  10. Text Notification Option for New Tasks and Progress

    I would like to see an option for text notifications of new tasks and their progress. This type of notification can be turned on/off and can be customized to individual or group needs. It is similar to a reminder, but more effective since nowadays most everyone reads their texts (at least much more than their emails).

  11. Direct follow up with task assignees

    Hi,

    I believe it is very important that project managers have the ability to only follow up with the people assigned a task vs. the entire team through the comment feature.

    Thank you.

  14. Mentioning specific users in the comments area

    Planner is almost a great tool for small business, but without the ability to direct comments to specific people, it falls just short. Ultimately I have to tell my employees to pay attention to a little indicator at the top of a given task to see if there are new comments. It's not realistic The same reasons that supported the development of the @username functionality apply here as well. The alternative has been to assign the task to multiple people so they are always notified when a comment is made in a task. Its not great. I don't want to…

  17. Notification Emails and Increase Max # of Users that can be Assigned

    I am requesting the capability to send a notification email to all assigned members on a specific Task within Planner.

    Additionally, I would like to also request a method to automatically send a notification email on a certain date or by intervals of # of days to remind assigned personnel of the Task.

    Lastly, I would like to have the numerical limitation of assigned members to be removed and/or the ability to assign a Team or Security Group to a Task as many tasks require an entire organization to complete.

    Purpose:
    To notify members directly when a Task has been…

  18. Allow to Watch list in each task to keep them updated about the changes and comments added to related tasks

    When I add a task, I want to keep some of my teams aware about the changes on this particular task. Currently, only assignees will get notified.
    Assignees and Watch list are different.

  19. Planner should not email comments to whole team

    Comments made on a task should not got to everyone on the team site. Should only go to those following the channel where the planner resides.

  20. Notify Teams when A Comment is Added to a task

    It would be great if there was a feature that would allow any task activity such as comments to be sent as a Teams notification, but only to the people assigned to the task.
