  1. 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.

  5. Direct follow up with task assignees

    Hi,

    I believe it is very important that project managers have the ability to only follow up with the people assigned a task vs. the entire team through the comment feature.

    Thank you.

  6. 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 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. Its not great. Although I do not want to come across as unappreciative. I respect the program, just would like to…

  7. Notification Emails and Increase Max # of Users that can be Assigned

    I am requesting the capability to send a notification email to all assigned members on a specific Task within Planner.

    Additionally, I would like to also request a method to automatically send a notification email on a certain date or by intervals of # of days to remind assigned personnel of the Task.

    Lastly, I would like to have the numerical limitation of assigned members to be removed and/or the ability to assign a Team or Security Group to a Task as many tasks require an entire organization to complete.

    Purpose:
    To notify members directly when a Task has been…

  8. add assigned message delivery from a planner task

    Currently tasks in planner can be assigned to members of the team. If the comments section delivered to all assigned members that would make a really powerful tool. Additionaly if we could use "@member" to include others or help identify specific responsibilities within the mention that would make a huge difference

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
