  1. add assigned message delivery from a planner task

    Currently tasks in planner can be assigned to members of the team. If the comments section delivered to all assigned members that would make a really powerful tool. Additionaly if we could use "@member" to include others or help identify specific responsibilities within the mention that would make a huge difference

  3. Only task group get informed

    Major issue: all member of a teams gets involved in communications for a specific task in the planner. In order to avoid this, the communication should be reduced and linked to the people of the assigned task. At least their should be an option to choose either all or just the member of the assigned taks.

  4. Send notification to assigned users whereby the task is deleted.

    Sometimes users will accidentally deleted other users task as there is no control on delete buttons. It would be better to have a notification to owner mentioning the person that deleted the task.

  5. Notify the assigning party of a task when the task is completed rather than entire group

    I assign tasks to individual team members, but don't get notification when the task is complete. It appears I can change the Plan Settings to notify the Group when a task is assigned or completed, but I believe this can get cumbersome. I wish there was a check box under Settings->Notifications that says Have Planner send me notifications when:

    A task I have assigned is completed (Email only)

  6. Ability to turn off 'You've been assigned a task' notification

    This notification email is creating a lot of distraction. With 50 - 75 task, members receiving that many emails is not suitable.

  7. modify or delete comments

    It would be useful if the comments could be deleted afterwards.

  8. Send alert when a subtask is completed

    There should be an alert sent when a subtask is completed so if multiple people are working on it the next person knows they can do their part of the task.

  9. To be able to specify when the notifications email as a reminder. Tick a mixture of boxes in notifications.

    When changing the notifications options, to be able to tick four separate options to get reminders for;
    Assigned a task
    Assignment is late
    Assignment is due today
    Assignment is due in the next 7 days.

    To be able to split these options would help avoid too many unnecessary reminders if you only want to know what is due today for example, rather than three reminders for one task.

  12. Do not send notifications to people who have left the team

    If a person has left the team, but has written a comment, then she/he still will get email notifications. That should be changed. Only persons belonging to the team should receive email notifications.

  13. Get notification when a task created by me will be done by another team member

    If I create a task and assign it to another person I would like to get following notifications:
    - When task is set done (to know it is done without checking everyday)
    - When due date was changed (to ask the reason)
    - When task will be re-assigned

  15. Mention people

    I see it as very important to be able to mention one or more people in the comments.

  18. the app on IOS or android should show a notification indicator on the app icon if a task is assigned a user.

    IOS and android apps show a small number in a circle on the app icon as a notification you have a message. planner mobile apps need this.

  20. Enable us to receive the notification in the shared mailbox when a task is assigned

    It would be great if you could implement a feature to receive the notification in the shared mailbox when a task is assigned.
    Additionally, it would be great if you could implement a feature to receive it in the external shared mailbox.
