As you work through your plan, you might have questions for the person working on a task. You can add a comment to the task to start a discussion. Why can't I see or add task comments?
You will not be able to add comments to tasks in plans that are created by Connected Yammer Groups.
Comment notifications aren't sent directly to the task owner unless they've already commented on the task themselves. For more details, see Stay on top of tasks and plans with email and notifications.
To add a comment, select a task to bring up its details, and then use the Comments box to discuss things with your team. Click Send when you're ready to post the comment.
Important: Once you post a comment, you can't delete or edit it.
After a comment is added, the task shows a comment symbol to give the team a heads-up that there's something new to read.
Comments are shown in the task with the most recent comment at the top.
For Office 365 Groups in Outlook, you can also take a look at all conversations going on for all tasks in your plan. Select the three dots next to your plan's name, and then choose Conversation. From there, you can see comments for all of the plan's tasks in Outlook on the web. You can also use the Outlook Groups app to view conversations about your plan. Learn more about conversations in Office 365 Groups in Outlook.
