Trigger for new comment in Planner task

Right now our goup members' inboxes are getting spammed by every comment created in any task in a Plan.

We'd like to turn off the global notifications, but the result would be that there won't be any notifications whatsoever.

 

So please add a trigger in Flow that lets us get a notification on comment creation.

 

I'll submit another Idea for the "Task is assigned to me"-condition.

I work in a global organization and we are using Planner, Teams, VSTS and Flow for our projects, we desperately need a Planner Trigger for When a Task is Commented, and thus, an action that would allow an e-mail to be sent to assigned members with the comments, instead of sending the message to the group inbox. I know that when a conversation starts, the members involved in the conversation receive the e-mail but it would be necessary that ALL the assigned members receive it.

The only person that receives comment notifications is the person that created the task. Shameful!

 

We have global comments off because we don't need the entire group being spammed with comments for tasks that are not assigned to them.

 

We need comment notifications to go to the person the task is ASSIGNED to, not the person that created it.  As a manager, I want to be able to create tasks for others, and I want them to be notified when I comment on THIER task. Instead, I get a useless comment notification for a comment I wrote for a task that is assigned to someone else and the assigned person gets nothing. Who designed this?

@absoffthewake I made myself the same question: "Who designed this?". Because I am the one who creates the boards and manages them, I make the assignments and everytime I comment on a task, I need to forward the e-mail received by myself, to the asisgned person. It is just horribly painful and time consuming to do this, specially when I'm dealing with 21 projects in a Global scale.

Most times the email gets sent to the Group's inbox, othertimes to the commenter's inbox and CC the Group, less frequently the the task owner's, commenter's, and group inbox.  Not consistent at all.  Maybe use the @mention schema so the commenter can direct the notifications.

 

This is especially annoying when the group is using exclusively MS Teams for collaboration.  The activity should be in the Team's feed rather than email, but this isn't the case.  Therefore, the trigger on the comment would be ideal.

Please add 'When a comment is made on a planner item' as a trigger

Agreed! Can't wait for this to come out

It needs to work like Trello: 

 

  • Ability to subscribe to (i.e. "Watch") individual Plans and Tasks
  • @mention syntax in comments
  • Notification drop-down showing history of all notifications (actually, there should be a single integrated O365 notification drop-down that can be browsed)
  • Notification configuration allows notifications to be received (or not) via email, email digest, phone app

Individual notification (configurable by user) for all events including comments is critical. If Plan activity doesn't push into inboxes and onto phones, my staff will never look at it. I'll have to stick wtih Trello.

Completely agree with all comments above. I'm considering making the switch from Trello to Planner for our team, and one of the deal-breakers is the email notifications system. I spent several days testing just to finally understand the logic. 

 

For the complete reference, I started off studying this post... https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/New-updates-to-Planner-comment-notifications-and...

 

...then upvoted the uservoice thread...

https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/11444235-em... with my comment "Our team really needs the functionality to add subscribers / followers per task (regardless of whether they have been assigned), and to have notifications for said task sent to not just the group mailbox, but also to each subscribers' personal inbox."

 

...and eventually found my way here to figure out how to use Flow to build my own notifications.

No brainer, this NEEDS to be added.
