email comments to assigned user only
Comments I make on a task only go to those assigned and not the whole group.

Similarly voiced in these User Voice threads (I posted this comment with links in all, so I apologize if you follow one that leads you back where you are first reading mine):
I agree 100%. I work with law firms and when there's an M&A the lawyer in charge does not want the Tax lawyer to be able to see the Labour legal issues/risks. This is just a specific example just to explain how law firms work in general. Planner (and Teams) should have granular security that resembles a Document Management System.
We really need to be able to create private tasks, sometimes with confidential or sensitive information that only the assigned person can see. Having the entire team have access to everything is great for teams that work that way, but does not cover the needs of say an executive ops group that assigns many sensitive tasks to many people, who should never have access to all of the info in the plan, just their part.
Can you have re-occurring tasks?
Also How can I change the settings so that a task is only seen by the person to whom it is assigned? I would like only the user who is assigned the task to be able to see it in Planner. Thank you so much
When creating a new task, one should be able to choose PRIVATE or PUBLIC (Public by default).Task communication and follow-up will then only be visible to creator and those delegated to.
For example, this is a great way for a leader/employee to follow up tasks agreed upon in appraisal meetings with the employee.
I agree that emailing just those assigned to the bucket would be very useful. I want to assign a bucket to different departments and keep them updated on tasks relating to that department only. Seeing all emails generated in the planner is going to be too confusing.
Yes, comments should be able to be limited to buckets, not entire plans.
Having the same question here. Only the assigned person should be informed of comments, not the whole team.
Hi, how do you set up the functionality that all comment notifications on a particular task only goes to the assigned team member. All comment notifications within the boards I own go to the whole team even if it is just based on one task.
