  1. 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 your patience! Since our last update, we’ve released a few features to address the feedback around notifications.

      We’ve heard loud and clear that comment notification emails should go to only users who are relevant to a given task. Therefore, we’re excited to announce we’ve updated the integration between Planner and Groups so that users following the group associated to the Planner plan will no longer receive a group email in their personal inbox when comments are made for tasks they have never commented on before. Group emails notifications for all task comments in a plan are still sent to the group mailbox. We believe this behavior should ensure comment notification emails are scoped to a more relevant audience of those who have previously commented on the task instead of being sent to all members of the plan.

      Additionally, we’ve added more context to the comment notifications…

        Thanks for your feedback!

        We’ve improved upon the Filter menu within a plan to give provide options for viewing certain tasks within a board.

        We are planning to expand upon both the Filter menu options while exploring how to build search functionality that can fulfill the needs mentioned on this thread. Please comment if there’s anything in particular you’d like for our team to consider!

        Cheers,

        The Planner Team

          Thanks for your feedback!

          With due date options in the Filter menu, and the ability to group tasks by due date category, we’re hoping that this will help Planner users find and organize upcoming dates and deadlines.

          We understand there is still an ask for sorting tasks within an existing grouping, please continue to use this thread to share feedback on this.

          Cheers,

          The Planner Team

        • Share plans with external people/customers

          Please let us share plans with external people. Or at least tell us how to do this! For example, if you work in a project with a customer, they may want insight in your work.

          • Android Push Notifications

            There should be a notification for the app itself instead of a email I'm sure I'm not alone on this idea.

              Hello!

              Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve just launched push notifications in our latest app update. Users should now see a push notification when a task is assigned to them. You can learn more about this feature here: support.office.com/article/get-notification..

              We’re looking to add more notification types in future updates, so let us know in the comments if there are specific types of notifications you’d like to see!

              Cheers,
