  1. Option to send e-mail updates from comments ONLY to group owners

    I have a planner for project management of support R&D for a broader group. I have members of the support function as Group Owners and the rest of the team as members. The support function staff want to use the comments section in the tasks for updates and communication, but we don't need these comments getting pushed to the rest of the team. Instead of asking the other team members to opt out of e-mail notifications, I'd like to limit the notifications to only the team owners.

  2. Email Notifications to Personal Inbox for "Guest" Members Outside your Organization

    We collaborate with a lot of clients "outside our organization". We create SharePoint sites and add them as "guest" members. We recently have been using Planner and adding a "Plan" to the SharePoint site page.

    However, we have found that when a task is created and then assigned to a guest, or a comment is added to a particular task, that user is not receiving an email to their personal inbox. It would be helpful for the site or plan "owner(s)" to have the ability to easily switch this option on, so that these guest users receive the notifications and…

  3. Text Notification Option for New Tasks and Progress

    I would like to see an option for text notifications of new tasks and their progress. This type of notification can be turned on/off and can be customized to individual or group needs. It is similar to a reminder, but more effective since nowadays most everyone reads their texts (at least much more than their emails).

  6. Mentioning specific users in the comments area

    Planner is almost a great tool for small business, but without the ability to direct comments to specific people, it falls just short. Ultimately I have to tell my employees to pay attention to a little indicator at the top of a given task to see if there are new comments. It's not realistic The same reasons that supported the development of the @username functionality apply here as well. The alternative has been to assign the task to multiple people so they are always notified when a comment is made in a task. Its not great. I don't want to…

  8. Allow to Watch list in each task to keep them updated about the changes and comments added to related tasks

    When I add a task, I want to keep some of my teams aware about the changes on this particular task. Currently, only assignees will get notified.
    Assignees and Watch list are different.

  10. Only task group get informed

    Major issue: all member of a teams gets involved in communications for a specific task in the planner. In order to avoid this, the communication should be reduced and linked to the people of the assigned task. At least their should be an option to choose either all or just the member of the assigned taks.

  11. Send notification to assigned users whereby the task is deleted.

    Sometimes users will accidentally deleted other users task as there is no control on delete buttons. It would be better to have a notification to owner mentioning the person that deleted the task.

  12. Notify the assigning party of a task when the task is completed rather than entire group

    I assign tasks to individual team members, but don't get notification when the task is complete. It appears I can change the Plan Settings to notify the Group when a task is assigned or completed, but I believe this can get cumbersome. I wish there was a check box under Settings->Notifications that says Have Planner send me notifications when:

    A task I have assigned is completed (Email only)

  13. Ability to turn off 'You've been assigned a task' notification

    This notification email is creating a lot of distraction. With 50 - 75 task, members receiving that many emails is not suitable.

  14. To be able to specify when the notifications email as a reminder. Tick a mixture of boxes in notifications.

    When changing the notifications options, to be able to tick four separate options to get reminders for;
    Assigned a task
    Assignment is late
    Assignment is due today
    Assignment is due in the next 7 days.

    To be able to split these options would help avoid too many unnecessary reminders if you only want to know what is due today for example, rather than three reminders for one task.

  17. Do not send notifications to people who have left the team

    If a person has left the team, but has written a comment, then she/he still will get email notifications. That should be changed. Only persons belonging to the team should receive email notifications.

  18. Get notification when a task created by me will be done by another team member

    If I create a task and assign it to another person I would like to get following notifications:
    - When task is set done (to know it is done without checking everyday)
    - When due date was changed (to ask the reason)
    - When task will be re-assigned
