    As Shiann Weiss commented - to reduce emails, use the existing notifications engine within Teams to alert us to comments on Tasks for which we are the Assigner or the Assignee. And DO NOT alert the entire team - only those directly affected by the task.

    And I am definitely looking forward to Tasks in Teams coming this quarter! https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/planner-blog/announcing-tasks-in-teams-a-coherent-task-management-experience/ba-p/969386

    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…

    I wish the default for a given task would be Comments notifying ONLY the people assigned the task and the individual who created the task. At least it should be an option to set Task notification as such. The other plans for tasks I see mentioned here are fine, but at this point we avoid Comments in tasks since so many people are notified every time a comment is entered on a task they have nothing to do with.

    Yes - notifications to all assigned on the Task as well as anyone else who willingly takes part in the conversation (such as the Assigner of the Task). The notification to every member of the Group is not necessary or desired.
