Email Notification for Task Assignments

notifications

#1

Our users want to receive email notification only of tasks that they have been newly assigned to. “All Activity” is too much email notification and “Task Reminders” doesn’t send immediate notification of task assignment. Is there a way to set up automatic email notification of newly assigned tasks?

Hi Jackie,

We’ll be happy to help! We have a few different options for you. First, I suggest you explore these Community conversations about email notifications

https://forum.asana.com/t/email-notifications-even-if-box-unchecked-too-many/6476/2?source_topic_id=8720

Next, here are Guide resources on email notifications

Last, if the above doesn’t provide you with the solution you need, you could also set up an integration using a tool like Zapier, which only triggers an email notification when a task is assigned to the individual.

Please let us know if any of these work for you or if you need more help! Thanks.

Hi,

Are you only notified if someone else creates a task and assigns it to you? Whenever I create a task for myself, it appears on my “My Tasks” view on my homepage, but I’m not notified via email. Also, my colleague assigned a task to me the same day it was due, and I received a notification that she assigned me to a task, but never received a notification once the was actually due. Am I missing something?
