some notification for overdue task

Why can I not set a trigger for tasks in planner to alert me or the person it's assigned to? Similar to how a reminder for a meeting in outlook will popup. Is there someway to align the flow or even planner with my calendar?

Hi cjohnsonUSBE,


You could consider to use the action “Notifications” after the action “Planner – Create a task”:



By using the Notifications action, it would either send you a mobile notification or send you an email notification once a specific action completed.


Please try it on your side. Please feel free post back if you need more help.

When I do an email notification, because of how my email rules have been set, it then starts a never ending cycle of new tasks and fills up my to-do list. 

That's okay, I'll create them manually, I guess.
