Planner’s task assignment e-mail notification design update

Planner’s task assignment e-mail notification design update

Microsoft Planner sends out an email notification to users when a new task is assigned to them. We are releasing few changes to the email template to improve the visual design and make the task deep links more relevant to the user.

When this will happen:

Standard Release: We will begin rolling out early November and expect to complete by mid-November.

How this will affect your organization:

With this release, users will start receiving the updated email template. A few changes from previous template are:

  • The sender email address will change from [email protected] to the task assigner’s email ID
  • The sender display name will change from “Microsoft Planner” to the task assigner’s name.
  • Visual updates to the email template design, as shown in the image below

You may want to update your training and documentation to explain this change to your employees. There are no changes to the Planner Notification settings, where users can turn on/off this notification email.
