The New Planner/Project for the Web - Using Notifications


Recently I was working with Project for the Web to determine how notifications functioned. Email Notifications are quite often used in Project Management situations to keep team members and other stakeholders aware of important events.

Well certainly Project for the Web does have a notifications feature. And notifications are sent to team members and others when they are added to a project, as well as when they are assigned a task. I also learned that notifications are turned on by default. I am not a fan of this setting, as people will get hit with quite a few emails upon deployment of Project for the Web unnecessarily.

Perhaps Microsoft will update this in the future. Nonetheless, in my testing I noted that the email notifications behaved different depending on whether the Project for the Web environment was the default environment or not.

When the project was located in the default environment, the notification when clicked would take the team member to the expected project in the expected interface.

Conversely, I then created a new project and tested in the non-default environment, clicking on the link in the email notification would bring the team member to the project, however, this would be via the Project Power App interface.

This interface exposes the Team Member to quite a bit of information they have no need to see or interact with. My concern being this is not as streamlined as I would like it to be. In any event, the notifications are present and they work.

Let's hope Microsoft provides some global mechanism to turn them on or off. Or at the very least, have them off by default! Please watch this video to see the results of my testing!
