  1. Membership rights

    Create leveled membership rights (i.e. admin/owner and member) so that admins have the ability to receive notifications of all activity of tasks within a planner. For example, if a task has been deleted, modified, or created then a notification is sent to the admins with who changed what and at what time/date. For member rights, they receive notifications only pertaining to tasks assigned to them.

  2. 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?

  4. Different notifications to different roles

    I'd like to have a possibility to differ between people who has an action, and people who is only informed.
    As it is now, everyone gets the same message, and it confuses the receivers, that there is a lot of useful info in the e-mails, but no action points to them. The keep on asking me" What is my action in this case?"

  5. Plan Title added to email notifications

    Add title of plan to email notifications. Sometimes individuals are part of multiple plans and notifications can become confusing.

  6. The notice should be there when any plan is deleted or edited.

    We are not receiving any notifications when any plan is getting deleted. This should be there to make admins aware of the changes.

  7. Setting the notification timing in planner.

    Setting the notification timing in planner is needed. It would be useful to change time of receiving the message. Usually it is sent by noon and I would like to be notified much earlier instead. For instance : if I have a visit today at 9 am . it is useless if I receive the message at noon instead of being notified at 6 am to be ready to do the visit at 9.am When I received the notification at noon as planner does now, I'll be late to the visit in case I forget it.

  8. Stop sending update notifications to the user who has updated the task

    Can we stop notifications being sent to the user who has triggered the update notification. It is annoying as the user who has triggered the notification will already know the task has been updated thus making the email notification redundant and just clogging up their email inbox.

  9. Tasks by Planner and To Do: Task notification in Teams app

    To Do tasks can be notified by setting reminder in Planner web app, but if you use Tasks by Planner and To Do in Teams app, you are not be able to set Task notification. Please add task reminder setting in Tasks by Planner and To Do in Teams.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  19. Notifications in MS Teams (instead of Email)

    MS Teams integration is great, but having task notifications go to that person,via MS Teams (w/ link to the task) vs email would be way better.
    The whole point of teams is closer collaboration and cut down on email messages that can just be a quick Teams message.

  20. Update the task name in email notifications when the task name is changed

    When a Planner task's name is changed, future notifications from that task retain the original task name. Please modify the email subject with the updated task's name.
