Send notification on self mention

I noticed Asana doesn’t send notifications to the user that mentions themselves. Coming from jira, this is a really common flow to track follow-ups.

Example: User “joe” is in meeting adding a comment to task:

@marie will talk with partner about desired behavior, @joe will file a new task for the remaining bug”

In this case, a notification is sent to “marie”, but not “joe”.

Welcome to the Asana Community Forum @Josh_Stratton !

Correct this is not possible currently for comments you post as Marie explained here as well.
Here was a thread about this too.

I believe the philosophy is that Asana does not send notifications about things you triggered yourself in general…

you can always use the “create follow-up task” feature if needed.
