Notification for Planner Tasks
Planner and Teams just needs a notification - when a task has been created for an assigned user that user should receive a notification - currently we are doing a work around by starting a conversation with a mention of a member name
This is currently in internal testing rings at Microsoft, and the feature team is targeting a release to the public in early Q2.

Notifications for assigned tasks are one of the most useful and important expected features of the Planner app. Seems like a huge miss that MS didn't include this feature with deployment of the GCC-High tenant.

+1 for Teams notifications about comments left on tasks that I'm assigned on. Having to rely on email notifications seems to defeat the purpose of Teams.
So many typical requests below that should already work.
Is Teams is a legit fully completed platform or is it in BETA.
Emails just don't work for external users?

Need to have more extensive Teams notifications options for Planner tasks. Notifications should only be sent to those assigned to a task and not the entire Team/Group.

We need a notification when New Comments are added!
This needs to be enabled in GCC High!!!

You can get a Teams notification when a Planner task is assigned to you by another person if your team has Planner installed and your plan has a tab in Teams. To turn on the Planner assignment notifications in Teams: In Planner for web, select Settings, and then under Planner, select Notifications.
Hello Miss Admin, Today we actually do have Teams based Planner Task notification in Teams and Outlook. Is this Live and just needs to be marked as completed or is there more notification greatest coming for this?
Have there been any updated to this? We are used to the Trello functionality, where any @[User] messaged send a notification to that user. We would settle for ANY notifications to people assigned to the task when a comment is made.
In my team we currently use Planner to manage newhire onboardings, we have a parent task for each newhire, with many subtasks assigned to multiple members of the team. The problem is whenever someone finish the task and tick his/her respective tasks, this action is not logged nor any notification is triggered, so in a busy team, no one else will know what's the status until he/she personally checks the subtasks.

I accept there are numerous who feel a similar fulfillment as I read this article! I trust you will keep on having such articles to impart to everybody.
Any update on this? We really need task notification in outlook!!
Any progress so far?
Currently our work-around is to also add the person which only needs the "completed" or "everdue-notification" as owner of the Task which spams the number of open tasks for team-leaders.
This Feature is badly needed.
In a flash, astonished with all the helpful data that is on it. Exactly what I was searching for and I am anticipating perusing your different https://www.promocodeslive.com/store/norton-coupons/ posts soon!
What happened to this? Email still seems to be the only mechanism for Planner notifications. Integration between Teams and Planner remains weak. I'd also love to see the excellent Chat/Post feature in Teams used in Planner for Description and Comments, so we can paste images, use rich text, and edit/delete comments. Please better and more tightly integration Teams and Planner.

Will the improvements include being able to @ someone in the comment line of a task?
Im a bit confused. What I want is notifications sent to anybody added on a task whenever a comment/new message is posted on teh task Lotherwise nobody has any clue when there is any update.
Now reading the comments here I see some people describe they want notificagtions on new comments turned off. And others post the same hing as me, they want notifications on new messages sent to everyone on tha task.
So I have no idea is this possible yet or not?
