How to use Sigsync Signatures for Microsoft Planner messages?

Microsoft Planner

It's a Microsoft 365 web application to manage the task and project workflow. You can plan the task, create a group of people to assign the respective task and also set the project deadlines and comment on the overall work progress.

When you create a project plan and add people to the associated Microsoft 365 group, Microsoft Planner will send the email notification to each member's email address of the Microsoft 365 group, if there is any modification in the projects or any comment written on project flow.

Steps to enable task-related notification in Microsoft Planner

  1. Login to Office 365 and select Planner in the left navigation menu.
  2. In the Planner page, click on the '...' and select Plan settings.
  3. In the Plan settings popup window, select the Send email to the group when a task is assigned or completed option to enable email notification.
