    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…

    Thank you for your feedback! We’ve improved the ‘Copy task’ dialogue so you can chose a different plan to send a copy of a task to! We’ll be exploring and expanding the ways in which you and your team can organize work in Planner, and hope this will be a helpful step forward.

    Here’s an article to learn more about this feature: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=872349

    Let us know what you think below! Thanks again for taking the time to vote for this idea.

    Cheers,

    The Planner Team

    Thanks for the feedback on the Filter menu and cross-plan search functionality!

    Next we’d like to pursue widening the Filter metadata to include other fields like assignee, description, and checklists. We’re also working with a search team in Office to align with UX and functionality across Office 365.

    This work hasn’t been scheduled yet, but we will update this thread as soon as it is.

    Please continue to share details on the filter and search functionality you’d like to see in Planner!

    Thanks,
    The Planner Team

    I understand that the idea behind "one assigned person per card" is likely to create unambiguous responsibility. This is a good argument. However, there are real scenarios where multiple people are "involved" in a card and the project team wants to track their involvement by "assigning" all of them to the card. If Planner allowed multiple people to be assigned to a single card, then teams would have the freedom to choose if they want to exploit that capability or not.

    Giving teams the freedom to self-organize around their own processes is very important. Adding "multiple user assignments" would be granting this freedom and move away from imposing processes on users that don't work for them.

    Agreed with the others. My team uses this capabilities extensively in our current project management tool. The ability to "mention" any user creates a ability to keep all conversation about the issue in the tool. Without the ability to "mention" you have to resort to email or other comm platform outside of Planner to contact and pass along information. Thereby, spreading the "story" about the issue across multiple platforms. This creates gaps and opportunities to lose information - an unnecessary project risk.
