  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  8. Allow any user, regardless of their email client, to receive planner notifications

    We are forced to use GSuite for our email and we are using SPO with the standalone SPO Plan 1 licensing. It appears that none of our users can get Planner notifications when a task is assigned/upcoming/past due because we don't use Outlook. Remove this restriction and allow notifications to be sent to any email address regardless of the client used. We currently receive SP alerts without issue.

  11. Allow variable notification intervals.

    I would like to set reminder emails periodically at intervals I choose. Like 30 days, 15 days, before the due date. Set more than one notification per task.

  12. Can we have or add additional "tabs" for classifiying our planner actions?

    We would like to have additional color tabs available for classifying our planner actions - either already available or where we can add additional ones if needed.

  14. Send notification to newly added team member at the time of they added.

    it is observe that information related to given task was not shown to all team member except assign member, and also this plan was not shown to all team member in planner hub.
    This plan shows only when the task is assigned to particular member.
    So, i suggest you to send notification for newly added team member. when this notification given to the member then plan will show in planner hub. after that any member can see this information through planner hub.

  16. Enable notifications for adding a note or comenting a Task in MS Teams - Planner.

    It would be cool if you could enable settings for the MS Planner in Teams. When I add a task for somebody and afterward add a comment or a note, then the person wont be notified. Please integrate this option.

  17. When I make a note on a planner task that is assigned to one of my employees, only I get a notificationn not who is assigned the task.

    When I make a note on a planner task that is assigned to one of my employees, only I get a notification not the person assigned. Seems more intuitive they would get the notice, I already know I posted a note.

  18. Ability to choose who gets email when clicking on send in card.

    People no longer assigned on Planner Cards are still being emailed when using the send option and others that were not on the card originally are not getting the emails.

  20. Notifications when Tasks are moved.

    I feel like this should just be built-in already, but I feel like there should be an option to enable notifications when a Task is moved from one Bucket to another. Or at least create a Flow to get this to work. I understand that it might be annoying for some people assigned to the Task that don't want to see the notifications, but that's why they should be able to opt in or out.
