  1. Allow any user, regardless of their email client, to receive planner notifications

    We are forced to use GSuite for our email and we are using SPO with the standalone SPO Plan 1 licensing. It appears that none of our users can get Planner notifications when a task is assigned/upcoming/past due because we don't use Outlook. Remove this restriction and allow notifications to be sent to any email address regardless of the client used. We currently receive SP alerts without issue.

  4. Allow variable notification intervals.

    I would like to set reminder emails periodically at intervals I choose. Like 30 days, 15 days, before the due date. Set more than one notification per task.

  5. Can we have or add additional "tabs" for classifiying our planner actions?

    We would like to have additional color tabs available for classifying our planner actions - either already available or where we can add additional ones if needed.

  7. Send notification to newly added team member at the time of they added.

    it is observe that information related to given task was not shown to all team member except assign member, and also this plan was not shown to all team member in planner hub.
    This plan shows only when the task is assigned to particular member.
    So, i suggest you to send notification for newly added team member. when this notification given to the member then plan will show in planner hub. after that any member can see this information through planner hub.

  9. Enable notifications for adding a note or comenting a Task in MS Teams - Planner.

    It would be cool if you could enable settings for the MS Planner in Teams. When I add a task for somebody and afterward add a comment or a note, then the person wont be notified. Please integrate this option.

  10. When I make a note on a planner task that is assigned to one of my employees, only I get a notificationn not who is assigned the task.

    When I make a note on a planner task that is assigned to one of my employees, only I get a notification not the person assigned. Seems more intuitive they would get the notice, I already know I posted a note.

  11. Ability to choose who gets email when clicking on send in card.

    People no longer assigned on Planner Cards are still being emailed when using the send option and others that were not on the card originally are not getting the emails.

  13. Notifications when Tasks are moved.

    I feel like this should just be built-in already, but I feel like there should be an option to enable notifications when a Task is moved from one Bucket to another. Or at least create a Flow to get this to work. I understand that it might be annoying for some people assigned to the Task that don't want to see the notifications, but that's why they should be able to opt in or out.

  14. How to Recover Gmail Account ?

    Get exchange your Google account password or Gmail through following some step on the pc and phone. You can alternate your password via any device like computers, phones and tablets. It might ask you to confirm google account data and through some steps you can change your password. Make certain you are using your non-public device to change Google password and I will be proper if you’ll use the same IP address to recover or change Google account password.

  15. Improve layout of email updates from Planner

    The email report for updates to a Task/Plan is uglier than a hat full of bums, and really scares off new users. I suggest the email include - the card, the nature of the last change, as well as perhaps the history of previous changes.

    The subject line should not start with "Comments on Task" when a lot more than comments has changed. I propose that it change to "The Task [task name] has updated", then it should include changes every field, to status, date, proirty, checklist completion, etc - everything the user needs to under what has actually changed.

  16. Planner Notification Settings

    Is it possible to edit Planner notification settings for all members included? Instead of each user having to do this themselves.

    Can we stop notifications being sent to the user who has triggered the update notification. It is annoying as the user who has triggered the notification will already know the task has been updated thus making the email notification redundant and just clogging up their email inbox.

  19. Notification for new cards

    Provide notifications when anyone adds a new card to a board. We use planner for idea sharing across our team and would love to get notifications when someone adds a new card to the board, meaning they have a new idea.
