Stop Planner creating a new email address for a private plan
Planner is a great collaborative tool but also very useful to use just on an individual basis for own tasks and responsibilities. However, if you create any new plan, it automatically creates a new email address for that plan that is immediately visible in the organisations address book/contact list in Outlook. It would be useful if you had the option just to use planner without it doing this.
I am having the same issue, there must be a fix for this!
Planner is otherwise a very useful collaborative tool and I like the dashboard.
It's sad that planner works this way, we don't need na email for each plan... it should be hidden or disabled by default.

I cannot see the point of creating a plan that has to create an email address. What is the purpose for this plan email address? Given that members of the plan are likely to have email addresses anyway, they don't need to see or remember a plan email address.
The most intuitive way to add contents to the plan, is to enable the "convert" function from outlook / excel / word - all other O365 applications.
I was trying out planner to roll out to our Company. Because of the issue mentioned here, I will be switching back to Asana and not enabling planner for anyone in our Company.

This is what stops us from using Planner - with multiple projects happening at once we do not want to have to check dozens of email inboxes to receive updates.
agree my company has shut down my use of planner, as they down want lots of email addresses been created.
Absolutely agree. I have 2 committees I want to have plans for, but also 2 projects that I just want to use on my own. Don't necessarily want "June 28 Big Event" in the Global Address book.
