From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC447334 · Published Oct 17, 2022

Message Summary

Microsoft Planner sends out a daily Due Date Digest email to users who have tasks that are assigned to them and are either overdue, due today, or due in the next 7 days. We are releasing few changes to the email template to improve the visual design and make the task deep links more relevant to the user. 

When this will happen:

Standard Release: We will begin rolling out early November and expect to complete by mid-November.

How this will affect your organization:

With this release, users will start receiving the updated email template. A few changes from previous template are:

  • The sender display name will change from “Microsoft Planner” to “Microsoft on behalf of your organization”. There is no change to the sender email address.
  • Visual updates to the email template design, as attached in the image.
  • User can navigate to Planner or, Microsoft To Do to manage their tasks from the links in the email.
