For all comments, email notifications need to be sent to all assigned to that task.
For all comments, email notifications need to be sent to all assigned to that task. That is the main use of Planner. If team members have completed their task; they can remove themselves from the assigned list, to stop the unwanted emails.

This is an essential demand in our business for a higher usage of Planner
It's diabolic to haven't a notification until you don't comment the activity, even if it's assigned to you!
Yes, how this still hasn't be implemented by MS is beyond me. This is a major feature failure.
Stephen Minhinnick commented
I agree that the people assigned to tasks should receive email updates if someone comments on a task, regardless of if they have previously commented on the task or not.
That is because if you are assigned to a task you need to know what is going on with it. This is the most basic requirement. All other task notifications are secondary.

Either send email or chat notification from planner option is much needed
It is crazy that any comment on a planner item in planner automatically spams the inbox of all team members, with no way to selectively choose email notifications per plan or by item.
As it is for channels - if I am a member of a large team with multiple plans, I should be able to hide notifications and email from plans and planner items, and choose when I want notifications and emails to come through (eg if someone specifically '@' tags me in the comments, or assigns a task).
In large teams, this makes the comment feature for planner items unusable.
how can there be no sending notifications via comments? This is insane...
Matthew Jarsky commented
This a critical feature.
We make do without it, but there are only three of us, and we all work in the same office, so we can lean over and say to each other “I just commented on Task X.”
…which is ridiculous.
If we had one or two more people on the team, we would have to abandon Planner.
for my team i assign each a task they need to get notification of changes etc. i would also like to see a notification back to the owner of completion of the task
any updates on this? this is so limiting.
Fred Langer commented
Yes - notifications to all assigned on the Task as well as anyone else who willingly takes part in the conversation (such as the Assigner of the Task). The notification to every member of the Group is not necessary or desired.
You know how Trello integrates with Teams? Make it work like that. I also want to Follow/Watch a Task.

I would consider this essential
This really needs sorting! There are many many different requests for this same thing spread out over loads of feedback items on here - maybe someone could consolidate them all and put them in one place. If you did then the combined request would probably have over 10,000 votes and show up as a clear top priority.
Erik Berger commented
best solution should be a notification in the specific channel, in this case you can choose which way you wanna get notified
Lisa Brand commented
Is this in plan yet, this is a key feature needed.
I would be curious to if there is an update on that request. For our organization, a push notification within Teams would be the best solution too, since that is the purpose of Teams - keep internal information separate from emails.
Something else regarding the Planner API: right now, comments are not part of the API. We did try to create a workaround using Flow but couldn't get the data from Planner comments. Something to consider as well! Thanks!
Any news on this one? This is very important for us. I'm assigning tasks and getting no feedback on what is happening unless I go looking for it!
Better not to be EMAIL notifications, we need an organic PUSH notification system within Teams so that it helps keeping track of which tasks advance, based on who is assigned to the task. Sounds like a pretty basic utility to me.

Yes!! this is a definitely needed feature. This will provide update to all the people i assign a task to.
