Hi everyone - thanks for all the feedback - we recognize how essential mentions are when managing tasks and working together with your team and the frustration with how it is not available in Planner yet. The feature remains in our backlog and our team intends to start working on it soon.
Currently, we're actively working on adding mention capability into our sibling app Project with the ability to add a Teams conversation to a specific task. This will allow you to mention others in the context of a task inside the Teams Project app (as well as all the capabilities supported in Teams conversations, like rich formatting, reactions, and more). You can track this feature via our M365 Roadmap item here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?featureid=85573
We intend to bring this same Teams conversation capability to Planner tasks soon after the it's available for users in Project.

@chtran - how does MS prioritise user requests? Years later we are still left waiting for basic functionality that causes us ALL to be less efficient with work. As these apps are meant to be productivity tasks, isn't it encumbant on MS to make them productive?!
These are not advanced things we are asking for here - just things that exist in other MS products and many competitor products. Worse - for work many of us are "stuck" with what our companies say we can use.
Having to add myself as "assigned to" in Planner to determine when someone does something with a task (as opposed to 'Watch this issue' I have in JIRA) is a pain. Inability to @ tag someone (as I do in other MS products) to chase someone up on a task is a pain - so it's back to email... really?!
It's really not good enough - can we please have some planned dates not "intends to start working on it soon"? Thank you.

@chtran - Really? This is not the answer I was hoping to hear. Actually it's the worst possible answer, if Planner users who were looking for Gantt chart functionality are a recent example. We waited and hoped and prayed and were let down quarter after quarter, and year after year. Still no Gantt chart in Planner. Because we're the poor cousin of Project who actually doesn't get the hand-me-downs, but are shut out of the Microsoft family because a new and improved Planner would cannibalize Project's market. So, no, I don't believe that @mentions are coming to Planner after they get added to Project. We won't get fooled again. Tell me I'm wrong by giving me a date please.
