Make Change Notifications Clickable to see Changes
When I open Planner, I often see a notification popup that says "While you were away there were X changes" but then there's no way to click on the notification to see which changes so the message is fairly useless. Please provide insight into the changes, such as a click through to a changelog where the user can click on individual entries to open that card to see the changes.
Please also provide an option to disable the notification. Thank you!
Agreed, it would be useful to filter by those changes for prompt review.

I agree, what is the purpose of the notification, if you cannot act on it? There's no difference between 0 and 100 tasks having changed, if I cannot act on that information.
As a manager, I 'm frustrated when I see that 40 tasks have changed, but I can't see what specific tasks or checklist items have changed. I'd rather use the free version of Asana or Trello, unless this changes.
Ideally, please allow me to click to see the changes that were recently made. If I miss the pop-up, I don't want to further be frustrated, so give me a way to get to see the recent updates list in the Project.
Yes, Yes, Yes

Agree with the below, this should be a link to the tasks which have been commented on / changed
Absolutely. The notification makes no sense if it will not give you the details.
I've been noticing the same thing recently, and I find it annoying. Why bother to tell me that changes have taken place without giving me some indication of what the specific changes were. This is dumb. In Trello, when cards have been changed, there's an icon next to a card that's been updated, and there is an icon of a bell in the top left corner of the main Trello window; it's highlighted red if there are updates, and you can click on the bell to access a window that shows all of the changes from one location. Microsoft, given how much effort you've already spent making Planner behave like Trello, why not also just copy this Trello functionality, too? Thanks.
