I was wondering why in the GCC Planner app the option to receive a notification (email, Teams, mobile push) when "someone assigns a task to me" is not available?  And when might we expect to see that feature arrive?  It would be really nice to have this capability as I'm managing many projects in Planner, but I have to manually notify people when I assign them a task.  Thanks.

*following - several users have asked me about this same thing. PMs looking to use Planner (instead of Trello) want to be able to notify others when a task is assigned.
