    I need to be able to fix typos and make comments clearer - especially if people are getting spammed with emails every time I add a new comments - comments are meant to to be quick bits of information. If I should take more time writing comments then we need something more robust. Commets should be and need to be editable.

    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!

    Wrong. We are still getting spammed by emails every time a change is made to a task. We need all emails to be optional. We have only been using Planner for a few hours and already the emails getting sent out automatically is becoming a problem. We need to be able to disable the option of sending emails. I should only receive emails when someone else changes a task that I am working on. My manager should only receive emails if they opt in to receive them.

    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…
