    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your patience! Since our last update, we’ve released a few features to address the feedback around notifications.

    We’ve heard loud and clear that comment notification emails should go to only users who are relevant to a given task. Therefore, we’re excited to announce we’ve updated the integration between Planner and Groups so that users following the group associated to the Planner plan will no longer receive a group email in their personal inbox when comments are made for tasks they have never commented on before. Group emails notifications for all task comments in a plan are still sent to the group mailbox. We believe this behavior should ensure comment notification emails are scoped to a more relevant audience of those who have previously commented on the task instead of being sent to all members of the plan.

    Additionally, we’ve added more context to the comment notifications…

    We have hundreds of members in our O365 Group that is attached to plans in Microsoft Planner. What use case calls for hundreds of emails to be sent out when a simple comment is made on a task. Many O365 Group members are a part of the group for other reasons that to use planner, why do they need to be notified of a task comment?

    Strange Microsoft thinks this is a good way to configure notifications. It is not realistic to ask hundreds of users to go into Planner and disable email notifications. Instead...they just get spammed for task comments they know nothing about.

    We have stopped using MS Planner enterprise wide until the configuration notification settings are changed.

    Some of our O365 groups have hundreds of members. Why does MS Planner blast emails to everyone each time a task is commented on.

    We have stopped using this application due to this.
