      Hello!

      Thank you your feedback and patience. We’re in the testing phases of development for both an iCalendar feed from Planner and a schedule view of your tasks. We will be pushing both to production soon and will update this thread as soon as we do!

    • Due date notification

      If a task is late (the due date has passed), please make sure to send a notification to both the owner and anyone related to the task (coworkers, team leader,...).

        Thank you for your patience. We are finishing up the development of due date notifications and are looking forward to pushing this out! Once complete, this will gradually become available to all users; we will update this thread again once it’s fully available to all Planner users.

        Thanks!

      • Email Notifications and Alert Options

        OK, so working out loud is good.... to a limit. Please enable settings that reduce the very high spam content currently coming from planner. Not everyone in the group wants to know ever movement on every task. Enable users to subscribe to various types of events on tasks. Hopefully at some time there will be some consistent settings like priority etc, that can be used as user selectable alert filtering.

          Hi everyone,

          Thanks for all the feedback! Based off all the comments, we’re focusing on email notifications for the following scenarios:

          1. When a task is assigned to you
          2. Changes on a task assigned to you
          3. Comments on a task assigned to you
          4. When you are @ mentioned in a task comment

          Our team is currently working on email notifications when a task is assigned to you, and have started planning for the other scenarios. We’re also considering notifications for when you choose to follow a task.

          We will continue to monitor the comments here and provide ongoing updates. We appreciate your feedback, so please continue to let us know how you’ll use notifications and if we’re missing anything!

        • Allow external users to view/edit tasks.

          We have sub consultants that we collaborate with on a daily basis. It would be nice to have different levels of permissions to view tasks, edit tasks, and / or create tasks.
