Get email about your tasks and plans

Planner keeps you up-to-date about the plans you're added to, and the tasks assigned to you, by sending you email.

To help you stay on top of your work, you'll receive email notifications when:

  • You create a plan.

  • You are added as a plan member.

  • You are assigned to a task.

  • A task you're assigned to is marked Completed.

  • Someone adds a comment to one of your tasks.

Too much mail! Notification settings are limited in Planner right now, but we’re looking into the right way to provide additional options. Have suggestions? We’d love to hear them! Leave us your feedback, or vote on features that others have suggested, at

If you want to receive all plan communication in email, you can subscribe to the plan. Select the three dots below the plan's name, and then choose Subscribe.


You will receive email when:

  • A new task is added to the plan.

  • A task is assigned (or reassigned) to any plan member.

  • A task's dates, progress, bucket, or other details have been changed.

  • Any plan member adds a comment to any task.

Why can't I see Planner? We’re rolling out Planner over the next few months. If you have an eligible plan but don’t see it yet, be patient…it’s coming soon!
