Task Notifications and @mention in Planner
- Notifications to the task creator on any changes to a task's status in planner
- Email notifications should include the plan/board that that the task is associated to or a part of
- User should be able to @mention other users within a task
- User should be able to create private channels within a team
This would be a big value add. Without it, I'm considering moving the team off of Planner and onto Trello. Anyone know if this feature is on the Planner roadmap or is at least a strong contender for being added? Looks like the Planner Roadmap hasn't been updated for 2020. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Planner
Notifications and @ mentions are so needed in Planner!
Very useful to re-focus an assigned user on a new update to the task

A agree - this feature is critical! Without it, it's quite hard to work with planner in a collaborative way. I would also, as i project our delivery manager, like a "Master overview" of all tasks within the Team-space - or even across Team-spaces to plan, delegate and follow up on tasks across projects and teams.
Is the mention-feature planned in any release soon?
We need @mentions. This is useless without them
Ethan Thompson commented
This would be a very beneficial feature. It's hard to believe it isn't already available. I've seen users asking for this for a few years now. Development, please roll this feature out!
Vote on these 5 other posts as well to help get this implemented:
Yes, #3, absolutely need @ mentions
Christian Bakke commented
Mentions and the possibility to assign separate task to someone within a project is a must have feature.
(3) Absolutely necessary
Larry Craig commented
Need to revert to outlook for something that could be handled so easily. Why this isn't even an option breaks the relevance of the product completely.
Carlos Rogerio commented
@mentions is really a missing feature in planner, specially considering the nature of Microsoft Team. It feels kinda broken when I want to update the task with a comment that needs attention from someone.
Points #1 and #3 are essential!
What upcoming release is this in ?
Point 3 is essential!
I would also encourage to integrate this common feature in your tool.

surprising that we still do not have the functionality to @ mention someone within the planner comments / check list / cards in general.
missing out on a critical piece of the puzzle that would encourage more adoption

1 Year since this feature had been requested and still NOT IMPLEMENTED?!
This is a MUST HAVE feature.
