Planner keeps you and your group up-to-date about activity in the plan.
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.
Any plan member adds a comment to a task that you've commented on.
Task activity notifications
Plan owners can have Planner send a notification to the plan's conversation feed when:
A task is assigned to someone.
A task is marked Completed.
These task activity notifications are off by default for new plans.
To turn task activity notifications on or off:
Select the three dots to the right of the plan name, and then choose Edit plan.
In the Edit plan dialog box, select the Send notifications about task assignment and task completion to the Plan's conversation feed check box to turn notifications on. Clear the check box to turn notifications off.
Subscribe to the plan
If you want to receive all plan communication in email, you can subscribe to the plan.
When subscribed, you will receive an email message when:
A task is assigned (or reassigned) to any plan member.
A task is completed.
To subscribe, select the three dots to the right of the plan's name, and then choose Follow plan in inbox.
To unsubscribe, select the three dots to the right of the plan's name, and then choose Stop following plan in inbox.
