Allow comments by users which don't have office 365 mailbox
Currently users which don't have office 365 mailboxes are unable to add comments to tasks. Actually, it appears they can add 1 comment.
Microsoft Premier and O365 Support both say this is expected behavior based on: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3169632/hybrid-exchange-users-can-t-manage-favorite-plans-and-can-t-add-commen
What good are tasks if you can't update them with comments for status updates, etc.... makes the product worthless. Also... I expect someday guest/external users will be able to participate in Planner, I would expect they would also be able to leave comments
Thanks for sharing a better idea. Please upload more posts in different topics.

This feature would be awesome, because at our company we don't use the microsoft exchange and doesn't have it on our office 365 signature at all(and i believe, should be others who do the same), but i think it's rather ridiculous this limitation, and only makes adoption harder, considering there are great alternatives
Our O365 tenant is needing this functionality, allow invited guests to post comments on planner tasks. They should not have to need a exchange online mailbox for this.

Would appretiate the option
Planner without comment capabilities is useless. Please provide comment functionality for users without EXO mailbox. Planner without commenting capabilities reduce adoption of MS Teams as well.
I agree. Please allow Planner to be completely independent of O365 Mailboxes!
Please allow Planner to be completely independent of O365 Mailboxes!

Not understandable for me, why a Mailbox is needed for this feature
Please note these users will see an error like this when trying to add comments: You no longer have access to "ef3bf88b-03f3-464e-a540-6a08b101b6f0". Technical details
