What is the need for @tag in Microsoft Planner
In the present form of the Planner, all the assignees in the task, who comment in the comment section of a task will receive the mail notification.
But most of the assignees, would feel it as an avoidable interference if the notification is insignificant to them.
Similarly, the assignees who have not put any comment in the comment section have to revisit it for any notification.
Here comes the simple and perfect use of @tag. You can notify a particular assignee by using the @tag and it simplifies the work of all the concerned people.
And it will be more useful for an assignee who works in multiple tasks in a team. He / She could get the notification without having to open the planner tab each time.
