Hi everyone, 

 

My team is considering using Microsoft Planner as an organizational tool. I'm researching the notifications and see that users receive an email and push notification whenever they're assigned a task. Is it possible to only receive the push notification and turn off emails entirely? 

 

Thanks, 

 

Megan

@MeganMck Since Planner users its respective group mailbox to save task comments, it becomes mandatory that mailbox will trigger notifications. The best way is that users need to unfollow the Group mailbox, so the group emails will not reach users inbox. Again, each user has to do this and there is no global way to do this.
