Support @ notifications in Task Comments
Support @<name> notifications in the Comments field for Tasks.
I also think that's a must have. A development in this direction would be a great increase in efficiency. Many thanks

It is hard to get people to begin to use Teams regularly and to re-set major communication to being only through Teams and not e-mail. I have a whole team reading the Planner board but just waiting to be able to communicate back and forth. We need that communication to be tracked within each card in Planner. I need this function YESTERDAY to make this work. Now the doctor sends his comment to 3 people via email, one responds and puts notes on the board. Then, that person has to write the comment all over again and send it in an email when a tag @Name should do it. PLEASE PLEASE add this function. then the doctor has t write a note in Planner and write a note in email. Double the workload.
Notifications system in Planner is so weak, I can't believe.
This is a deal breaker for us.
Any news Microsoft?

This would be an incredibly useful option for my team. We are trying to figure out if we can continue to use Planner without this feature. Not having it is forcing us to employ more steps in our communication flow than is optimal or efficient.

My team and I would like to be able to tag people who have not been assigned to the task already at hand. We are not receiving any type of notification currently. Whether through email or Planner itself. This would be highly used if it was a possible plugin.
Definitely and ASAP. I was really surprised that this is not a feature yet.
This is a MUST HAVE!
yes. we really need this.

This is a major pain point for us in staff adoption. @ mentions are now common in many of the tools that staff use. They just got rolled out in Outlook for us. We're seeing that many staff are using @ mentions in Planner, assuming that those people are getting notifications, when they're not.
