  1. 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.

  2. I do not want to get an email notification for my own comment

    I am a co-assignee to a task and I want to make a comment related to the active task. Do not see the need to be getting these comments on my email when I made the comment myself. Can this be changed?

  3. Allow tasks to be pre-assigned, so that notifications are only sent once the project is completely planned out.

    Most planners need to pre-assign resources before the project is approved and they have conversations with those individuals.It would be helpful to have a project stage (like pre-planning) where you can build these tasks and then when you move it to another stage (Planning) the tasks notifications are sent.

  4. Task Notifications

    Too many notifications - every update generates a notification, and the setting is all or nothing. Why not allow the user to select what actions to generate email notification?

  5. 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.

  7. Status updates in a task should generate e-mail to all assigned in the task

    Whenever status is updated in a task this should generate e-mail to all assigned to the task so they can efficiently follow the development. Right now it seems that you need to comment on the status in the task or be the creator before you receive e-mail.

  8. Notifications for manager/ leadership of the plans

    With assigned tasks, is it possible to send notifications not only to the assigned task person but also the board managers/owners. It is a question one of our top leadership had and this is not a feature that is available in this application. I am not sure if there is a way to use the org chart within Office 365 or just who ever is the owners of the plans to get a notification of an task that has been assigned to an employee of the team that it is soon due and those that are late. We are trying…

  9. Comment task directed to a person

    It should be possible to send comments in the task to a specific person with a notification. Like: @John check the orders today.

  10. Provide the ability to brand Planner notifications

    Please provide the ability to brand Planner notification emails with the tenant company name and logo. Planner notification emails are from Microsoft Planner, and have the Microsoft logo in the body and the footer, which causes users to believe that the emails are either phishing, spam, or marketing emails. The ability to customize the Planner email template with company branding would greatly enhance the functionality of the notifications. Thanks for your consideration.

  13. priorities change. So there should be a way to Notify the user if the task priorities or deadlines change.

  16. Planner notification email with on prem exchange(2016) (with hybrid configuratio)

    Hello:
    we have on prem exchange (2016) with hybrid configuration. We have successfully configured mailflow between O365 and On prem exchange. But our planner task notifications emails are not working for our users which is a huge problem because we have project going live next month and we wanted them to work . I understand officially planner is not supported with on prem exchange as per MS article but is there any other workaround we can use?
    thank you in advance

  17. Planner comment notifications

    Planner email notifications for comments do not go to those who are added to the task after its creation. If someone is added to a task after it was created, they need to post two pointless comments on the task before they start getting email notifications when others comment on it, Microsoft reps have confirmed for me that this is by design.

    Proposed solution:
    Users that are assigned a task should ALWAYS get email notifications for the comments on that task, whether or not they have commented twice, or are assigned after the tasks creation. To improve this feature further,…

  18. Notifications when I self-assign a task

    I think it would be helpful and beneficial for there to be the same notifications when I assign something to myself. I need those reminders, just like when I assign a task to someone else.

  19. 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.

  20. Get an email when you are unassigned from a task

    When unassigned from a task, have the person unassigned get an email and/or have that trigger available from Power Automate.
