  1. Email people assigned to a Task when it is changed/updated or when a comment is captured

    Me and a colleague own a task, however when I added a comment and changed the due date on it, I was the only one receiving an email about it, which is really pointless given I know what changes I made and would rather the other people assigned to it received that email notification... Please can this be changed?

  2. Mention people

    I see it as very important to be able to mention one or more people in the comments.

  3. 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…

  4. People not assigned to tasks get e-mails for all tasks in the plan

    How can the e-mails be limited to only people assigned to the task?

  5. Allow ability to set members notifications for assigned task - Team project leaders should be able to force a notification.

    If we want to be able to confidently use Teams to assign tasks, project leaders should be able to force email notification as a means of confirming that the Team member has been notified. As it stands if someone turns off notification, members assigning the tasks do not know that the assigned person has notifications turned off.

  6. Add a time (in addition to date) to task reminder notification to assignee(s)

    Task reminders only have a date. It would be great to have a time so it reminds people of a task x min before the due time/date like in outlook. Example of application is when the task is to attend a particular event/meeting.

  7. 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.

  9. Planner Notification

    Planner not sending notifications when the state, comments , priority etc. are changed. It only sends notification to any new person that is added, which is useless because everyone else on the task doesn't know what new comments are.

  10. Notify Teams when A Comment is Added to a task

    It would be great if there was a feature that would allow any task activity such as comments to be sent as a Teams notification, but only to the people assigned to the task.

  11. 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

  12. Task Notifications

    Too many notifications - every update generates a notification, and the setting is all or nothing. Why not allow the user to select what actions to generate email notification?

  17. 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.

  19. Planner should not email comments to whole team

    Comments made on a task should not got to everyone on the team site. Should only go to those following the channel where the planner resides.
