  1. 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)

  2. Notifications: Planner Task notifications should to send to all the member once the task is assigned and also when commented

    Notifications: Planner Task notifications should to send to all the member once the task is assigned and also when commented

    When task is assigned to 20 members initial notifications is sent to their mailbox. But later when commented no one receives notifications. Planner Tasks are also sometimes used for project update and their progress. Hence its always recommended that notifications goes to all the members to whom the task is assigned to.

  3. Comment Notification to Assignee

    Notifications (via an email) of comment are only being sent to assignees originally assigned to the task when task card was created.

    Since creating the task card, assignees have been added and removed. Assignees post task creation are NOT receiving notification/email of new comment. Assignees removed from task are receiving notification/email with comment.

  4. 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.

  6. Reception and lecture receipt

    It would be useful to get notifications when the task we made in the planner were received or / and red by atributed persons.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  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

  14. 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.

  15. Due date highlight indicator update

    Today, if a task is due, the due date will get a red highlight, but it only happens after the due date has past. I'd suggest having multiple colors to denote different ranges. For example:
    * Red if the current date is past the due date
    * Orange if the current date is equal to or 2 days before the due date
    * Yellow if the current date is between 5 or 2 days before the due date
    Note: days should be business days only; not calendar days.

  16. Receive Notifications when comments are added

    It would be great to get notifications when someone adds a comment to a card. Sometimes there is more than one person working on a card and comments help to trigger actions for other people to contribute

  18. 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.

  19. When a person is added to a task they should be getting all notifications from that task including comment notifications.

    Please make it so that when a person is assigned to a task, either by themselves or by someone else that they get all task notifications including the comment notifications. Currently they have to make a comment before they receive notifications from the comments when someone else makes a comment. Also being able to unsubscribe and resubscibe from the comments would be helpful. As a person finishes up a task and passes the torch to someone else it would be nice to unsubscribe from the comments. Another part to this would being able to tag @sam some one in the…

  20. 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…
