  1. Planner Comments should be sent to people assigned to the Card

    I certainly appreciate that sending comments to everyone in the group is a bad idea. Why not send the comment only to whoever is Assigned to that card.

    This current solution where only people that have made comments get notices makes the comments completely unusable for communicating to people that are responsible for the card. For example, I’d like the ask the person assigned to the card, what their progress is? They don’t get the message any longer. The only people that get the message are people that have made comments.

    Here is another example of a problem with this.…

  2. Notifications for GCC Tenants

    Send notifications for Planner in GCC tenant. Users should receive an email when a task has been assigned, updated, or due date.

  3. Planner comment notifications

    Planner email notifications for comments do not go to those who are added to the task after its creation. If someone is added to a task after it was created, they need to post two pointless comments on the task before they start getting email notifications when others comment on it, Microsoft reps have confirmed for me that this is by design.

    Proposed solution:
    Users that are assigned a task should ALWAYS get email notifications for the comments on that task, whether or not they have commented twice, or are assigned after the tasks creation. To improve this feature further,…

  4. Notify people assigned to a Task when it is changed/updated or when a comment is captured

    A colleague and I 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/update... Please can this be changed?

  5. Update the task name in email notifications when the task name is changed

    When a Planner task's name is changed, future notifications from that task retain the original task name. Please modify the email subject with the updated task's name.

  6. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Integrate Planner Notifications with Teams Notifications

    Allow users to choose for planner notifications to show up in Teams rather than in Email. We are using Teams for all inter-office communication and I receive notifications from Teams when I have a message there, but we still receive notifications in our email inboxes when we have a task assigned to us. If all notifications could happen in one location, ie. teams, it would be much simpler for everyone.

  14. Tag in comment, collate not tagged comment notifications

    There are several ideas to be able to tag people in comments.
    That's a good idea. Maybe I want to ask someone that's in the plan but not assigned the task to add input.
    If that idea is implemented, we could also divide notifications in two groups: tagged and not tagged. If I'm tagged I get an email. If I'm not tagged comments from the same plan are collated and sent out with preset intervals, options like: end of each day or maybe able to choose which days of the week

  15. Stop sending emails to group on comments

    Its crazy that you can't disable group emails on Planner comments. Not everyone in the group is involved in the plan.

  18. turn off emails for comments

    Give the option to turn off emails when you put comments in a task. The task auto emails the team on everything anyone puts in comments
