Put the name of the plan in task assignment email
Currently when user receives task assignment email it says "You've been assigned a task!" in the subject then it has the task name and a button to open that task in Planner. Could you please put the plan name someplace in that email. We have alot of templated plans where the tasks are the same and they get these tasks in several plans at once. It would make the users really happy if they can easily see in the email what plan it is and not have to open the actual task in planner. Other notification emails like late tasks, etc. have the plan name under the task, it would be great to have same in notification email.
Commenting to also voice support for this suggestion, this would be a huge improvement for organizations with lots of plans that contains similar or identically named tasks.
Voicing support for this request. We do about 400 projects a year with the same workflow, so someone receiving a "You have been assigned a task" and that task showing as "Update Round 1 Creative" isn't helpful on it's own. Really needs to include the Plan Name which for us, includes that project's job code.

I strongly support the comment on this page. I receive lots of notifications and want to distinguish from the subject, which task an plan the notifications comes from.
We'd like something similar - to have the specific task title to be the subject of the email notification rather than a generic subject 'You've been assigned to 1 task in Microsoft Planner!' ...
