Creating rules across projects and subtasks

Dear asana community,

I am trying to work with rules to create an easy workflow across projects. In our case, we have several tasks that sort of flow from one project to another and back to the first. This means some tasks of one project are dependent on the completion of subtasks of another project and vise versa. I have searched for solutions but so far haven’t found anything helpful. Maybe someone here can help? It would be greatly appreciated. I’ll include some details below.

Basically, I need this rule:

Notification when a subtask is no longer blocked

I have Project 1 and Project 2. In Project 1, I have task 1.1 with several subtasks. Some of these subtasks (but not all of them) can only be done when a task in a specific section of Project 2 has been completed. So far I have only been able to make the different tasks dependent on each other, so when I am looking at the different subtasks in task 1.1, I can see that some have the hourglass icon (I think that’s what it is?) instead of the check icon, so I know I cannot yet complete that subtask. But I need to constantly check whether the hourglass icon is still there or not. It would be great if I could get a notification whenever there is no longer a dependency because the task from project 2 has been completed. I know there is a rule that allows you to add a comment to the task when it is no longer blocked. This would suffice as a notification. But unfortunately, this only works for the entire task, not for subtasks. Or at least I don’t know how to apply it to subtasks as well. Is there a way around this?
