I believe that notifications are not generated in circumstances where you yourself take action. Perhaps that’s what’s going on in your case.
See this for a somewhat similar situation:
When one tries to use Asana for one’s own work, this really creates a a problem. We’re hoping that Asana will remind/notify us, but Asana is impeding this: It would work for another actor taking the action, but not ourselves. It’s also not clearly documented when such notifications are prevented which adds to the frustration. It’s true that some cases might be superfluous and should be filtered out, but not all of them. This is another example of a behavior that should be up to the Asana user to choose, I feel.
I don’t know of any workaround for getting notifications, but my workflow is not to rely on notifications for things like this, but it does rely on checking My Tasks, so you’d have to do that (perhaps even just leave a browser tab open dedicated to it).
I am also not receiving email notifications. I was, but all of the sudden this has stopped. I checked all of my settings in Asana and checked that the notifications aren’t going to junk mail. I did not assign these tasks to myself. I did get emails when they were assigned to me but I am not get any update or reminder emails any longer.
Let’s see if we can resolve this issue together. If I get this right: you used to receive notifications when tasks you’re following were modified (ex: due date was changed/task was assigned to a different assignee), but you aren’t receiving these anymore. Is that correct?
Hey! Thanks for the reply. I did get an email this morning with my upcoming tasks that are due. If I continue to have issues, I will
come back to this email and give you the info you requested. Thank you very much!
