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
Specifically point 3 is essential. When is this expected to be updated/integrated?

This is a critical feature needed for a task manager.

Jup, it's needed. Every time when we want to try Planner for a project, we tend to skip it due to the lack of the mentions...
Collin Glover commented
Beyond critical. This would bring planner into competition with other major platforms like Asana, Wrike and Trello.

Yes to #3
Please we need #3.
Planner seems to be similar to Trello, only it doesn't include this critical feature. It's a little concerning that this suggestion was made almost a year ago and yet nothing has been changed. Microsoft could point to the low number of votes, but I would assert that the number is low because of poor adoption of this tool. If this too can get near parity with other free established tools like Trello, I think adoption would go up.
Please add that asap.

#3 would make life so much easier.
In my opinion, planner is inferior to a lot of other project management solutions without it.
#3, I cannot agree more. ASAP plz.
Felix Brunnegård commented
#3 All the way! ASAP please.
Every other planning tool our company is looking at has the @mention feature except Planner. This is a big deal!
#3 is needed.
Yes to #3!!!
please add the 1, 2 and 3.
I can´t believe such a tool has no @ (mention) feature
Parag Joshi commented
we need #3 on Planner
We really need #3, the ability to @mention other users within a task in Planner.
We rely need the @ mention function in Planner so we can more directly point the attention to a person

This is something I think would be very powerful and helpful. As team members are working on efforts, they need support from others and need to be able to call them out for help.
