I have a type of task where each subtask can only be completed once the parent task is completed. I am looking for a way to automate sending a notification to those users assigned a subtask when the parent task is marked complete. Then, those users know they can begin working on their tasks. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?
How can I send a notification to users assigned a subtask, based on when the parent task is completed?
If you’re on any Asana paid plan, you can use Dependencies to make each subtask dependent on the parent task’s completion, then the assignee’s of the subtasks will receive a notification when unblocked.
(FWIW, This may be a bit confusing to some who would expect that seeing the parent task completed would mean that it’s subtasks must have already been completed.)
Hope that helps,
