The creator or all assigned members of a task in Teams should get notifications for comments, progress changes etc
The notifications around Microsoft Teams Tasks do not align with how useful this app can be.. as the creator of a task I want to be notified via email preferably if somebody has commented on the task, made progress, completed etc. If I'm assigned to a collaboration task I also want to be notified when comments are made etc.

Yes - as I'm the overall Plan Manager, I need to know if people have made updates/changes. Even though there is a notification, I have no idea who made the changes or what/

I also agree - But in my case our company is trying to reduce inter office emails and I would like notifications to be via teams. Not only for the creator but for those who are tasked. Can we get setting for both Teams and Email.

I agree with this - I assign a lot of tasks to participants in a project that I run, and currently I need to manually check on the task status to see if each individual task has been completed. It would be hugely time saving for me if I could get an email alert whenever a task was completed (or other change made).
