  1. Notifications for a specific bucket

    I have a specific bucket that contains attachments and other updates that I would like the whole group to be notified of. Rather than assign each task in the bucket to each member of the group every time a task is set up so they receive an email notification, is there a way to put settings on a bucket so anything in that bucket is notified to the whole group via email. I don't want the other buckets to be set up this way, just this one.

  2. Planner task notification improvements

    There needs to be significant improvement in the notifications within planner. There should be an option (probably the default) of a daily digest email to reduce the number of notifications. Also need more granular control over who receives notifications, for e.g. all users, assigned users, users who have commented, specific users etc.

    The current government version does not have the notification function when a task is assigned or hybrid comments in planner. Please add these features.

  5. 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?

  8. Link to bucket on cards

    When a new task notification is sent it would really help if a link to the Planner and Bucket was also on the card. The task alone doesn't explain the whole project.

    Bucket Name on the card (task) should be a link to the Bucket in Planner, that way the person receiving the task can see the entire project.

  10. Give an option for a reminder

    We are using Planner for a Kanban-Board in our Team. Tasks, which need to be discussed, in our regular meeting, are marked as "tbd".

    Some tasks are taking a long time to be finished, so that an automated reminder (7 | 14 | 21 | etc. days) could help, to inform about the status, when the task wasn`t set to "tbd" for a long time.

  11. New Kindle Oasis is a gorgeous but too expensive e-reader

    Looking more than ever like the printed page, Amazon’s new flagship Kindle e-reader is a beautiful device vulnerable only by its hefty $399 price tag.
    These days e-readers can effort to prove their worth when tablets and smartphones are everywhere. But even if you have these gadgets at your disposal, there are a few advantages in observing an e-reader like Amazon’s Kindle in your bag.

  12. 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.

  13. Change default notification settings for whole team

    Allow an admin/channel owner to set the 'default' notification settings for the whole team. In my specific situation the team is reluctant to use Teams due to the amount of email notification it sends them.

  14. The creator or all assigned members of a task in Teams should get notifications for comments, progress changes etc

    The notifications around Microsoft Teams Tasks do not align with how useful this app can be.. as the creator of a task I want to be notified via email preferably if somebody has commented on the task, made progress, completed etc. If I'm assigned to a collaboration task I also want to be notified when comments are made etc.

  16. Notification reminders for tasks

    It will be good to have notification / reminders time period customization so that team can adjust it to meet project specific requirements. Currently, there is only 7 day option but ideally user/owner should be able to edit the timeline when system should push these notifications out for tasks.

  17. Make Change Notifications Clickable to see Changes

    When I open Planner, I often see a notification popup that says "While you were away there were X changes" but then there's no way to click on the notification to see which changes so the message is fairly useless. Please provide insight into the changes, such as a click through to a changelog where the user can click on individual entries to open that card to see the changes.

  19. Integrate Planner Notifications with Teams Notifications

    Allow users to choose for planner notifications to show up in Teams rather than in Email. We are using Teams for all inter-office communication and I receive notifications from Teams when I have a message there, but we still receive notifications in our email inboxes when we have a task assigned to us. If all notifications could happen in one location, ie. teams, it would be much simpler for everyone.

  20. Tag additional users in task

    In assigned tasks, allow additional people to be tagged so they are notified when the task is completed
