  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  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. 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).

  13. 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…

  15. Tasks notification configuration

    Notifications should have much more configuration options.
    The amount of notifications is growing as we use the Planner more, and we need to build filters in Outlook to maskout some of the Planner's notifications....

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
