How can we make Planner better?

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,...).

    Is there documentation on this feature anywhere? Do I only get an email the day after it was due? Do I get an email Every day after something was due until it's completed? Is any of that configurable?

    can we change the notification timings to change it to requirement of the organization

    Due date notification doesn't work for my team. Located in Denmark

    Tested this overnight and it's working fine. Thank you so much for releasing.
    Would like localisation of the dates in the email because at the moment it's in MM/DD/YY format. This will cause confusion for my UK users.
    Also it would be good to be able to set the frequency of notification emails to e.g. once a week rather than once a day, I will post this as a suggestion

    Excited but I'm unable to locate this feature, please advise how to use it.

    I can't find it either and could we get some info on how it actually works?

    This is good news, but could the Admins tell us where this is at? I can't find it in Planner.

    Too late - already switched to Trello because of date formatting problems

    Does anyone know if this means there will now be push notifications on the planner app for Android/iPhone?

  • Maciej Rozanski commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There has been a new option added to notify when a task is late, due today, or due in the next 7 days.

    I got an email today saying I had some over due tasks and some upcoming ones. Maybe it started rolling out?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please can we have an estimated release date. I love planner and am holding back a roll out across our organisation until this feature is implemented. Also agree with David below about needing localisation of dates to UK format please

    can we ensure that the dates on emails or notifications are in country specific format. Our users are getting confused as it is only showing dates in US format.
