Integrate Planner Notifications with Teams Notifications
Allow users to choose for planner notifications to show up in Teams rather than in Email. We are using Teams for all inter-office communication and I receive notifications from Teams when I have a message there, but we still receive notifications in our email inboxes when we have a task assigned to us. If all notifications could happen in one location, ie. teams, it would be much simpler for everyone.
Agree! When I am assigned a task, I get 3 notifications (2 from teams and 1 from email). It's overwhelming. I want to be able to disable my email notification (and 1 of the teams notifications). However, it is all or nothing right now in the settings. And to access the planner notifications setting, I have to open planner in the browser but I usually do everything right in the teams desktop app. Thanks!

I would suggest that the messages only go to the chat stream of a channel where the Planner is pinned or @mentioned. Don't just dump every comment into the General channel chat stream.
And in conjunction with this, stop automatically sending every comment as an email to the Group mailbox. Notifications should only go to the people directly associated with a card: the people who created it, are assigned to it, or are @mentioned in it. Clearly Planner notifications were designed a long time ago when all that O365 has was Groups, but it is long past time to improve on this for Planner to complete with the big boys.

This would be super helpful!
No notifications work for planner in teams! Please please light the lamp on this!
I second this one! We want to use Teams, not Outlook...

What about making these options configurable?
Send in Teams, email, etc.

Our organisation has a similar challenge that notifications occur both in teams and email. Still ooking at how best to balance this.
