    Thanks for everyone’s patience on this item. We’ve completed our first item in this space. We now set Task Activity Email Notifications (Assign and Complete) to Off By Default. Plan/Group owners can turn this setting on/off in the “Edit Plan” dialog.

    We still have additional work planned in this area such as providing more granular controls to which activities will trigger notifications and more control over cases where you’ve been assigned tasks.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

    I have to say that it is amazing that developing and releasing a tool that has this type of brain dead flaw is mind boggling. It took about 3 hours for my department colleagues to receive a blizzard of unnecessary and confusing emails from a single test "plan". In addition, to not have a task that is assigned to you appear on your calendar is, well, dumb. Please take this dumpster fire back to development and rethink the tool.
