Would be good if the "assigned" party would get "comment" emails on a task without having to comment first.
Send comment updates to all assigned parties without them having to comment first.

The current Planner notifications for comments on tasks make no sense.
If I want to ask someone a question within a task or if I want to comment something important, people assigned to the task will not see my comment unless they have previously commented on the task.
It is critical that users receive notification of comments on tasks they have been assigned, regardless of whether they have commented on the task.
Right now, we are dealing with this limitation by telling each other when we make a comment. This only works for us because we are a tiny office of three people. It would never work for ten or twenty people—I doubt it would even work for five!

This is critical as in most cases there are additional instructions/information that needs to be provided which is not part of the "Description" section. This leads to an additional manual step where this information is required to be shared separately.
