We work a lot with collaborators (external or internal) and we share a lot of our tasks with them. However, these are not notified when the due date changes, in the majority of our projects the due date is a very important factor in our project cycle. The only way to get around this problem is to write a comment, or add a rule, however this is not practical because often the task assignee forgets to do so.
It would be great to add this functionality to Asana.
This feature is currently available with rules.
You can create a rule that when a due date is changed to a task, a comment is added. The comment will hence notify collaboraters within the task.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for your help. I’m aware of that alternative solution using rules, but it has the same issue, people forget to do it, and also you have to manually create a rule for each user, which is complicated.
You can automate the process and remove the issue with a workflow integration app such as Unito or Zapier. I think Unito would be more practical for you as the sync is bi-directional so it’s great for collaboration, Zapier is cheaper but it’s considerably longer to set up and it only syncs in one direction.
I hope his helps
