The auto-created plans via Yammer Resources miss commenting functionality.
This is causing confusion for our users. Do you have any plans to rethink this feature?

@Konstantina Antoniadou I'm not sure I know what you mean by "auto-created plans" when you refer to Yammer Resources. Are you referring to the Planner board that gets provisioned along with a newly created suite-connected Yammer group?

@Ron Blandford Yes! These plans have no commenting functionality and this causes confusion.

@Konstantina Antoniadou That's an interesting observation. The lack of comments is related to the fact that Office 365 Groups connected to Yammer do not have the Outlook distribution list feature enabled. The comments in Planner leverage that distribution list.

 

Seems like a feature gap that the Planner team could address.

We have no plans around this type of commenting at the moment. Per Kevin's reply below, this might be something that the Planner team can address.
