All Planner users who are assigned a task should now receive an email notification about the task assignment. Thanks for the suggestion and feedback!

Agree that Planner should send an email alert to a team member when I give them assignment. It's easy to delete emails if one thinks one receives too many. But it seems silly that I have to send a separate email telling the team member that I've assigned them a task.
