This is currently in internal testing rings at Microsoft, and the feature team is targeting a release to the public in early Q2.
~Alex & the Teams team
I appreciate that you can now get notified when a task is assigned to you. That will make Plannar much more usable for us within teams. However I was disappointed that I did not receive notifications for comments on tasks I am assigned to or responses to comments that I made on tasks. We would really like to be able to have discussions about specific tasks on the tasks themselves, but it is really hard to do so when no-one is notified about responses.
This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.
We really need a way to get notifications for our Plannar Messages within teams. Most of the time when someone messages on a plannar task it is completely lost since it doesn't show up as a message within teams.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
Update! I just found this post that stated this feature is coming later this year.
We are still considering this feature for future releases, and will continue to update the status when it changes.
