  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
