Task dependencies reminder

Hi, once a dependent task is complete, will the assignee get an email or will it only show a notification in the inbox?

Hi @Aron_Berger, yes when the dependent task is marked complete, the assignee of the parent task will automatically be notified. To learn more about dependencies, I would advise you to check out this article: https://asana.com/guide/help/tasks/dependencies. Hope this helps! :slight_smile:

i dont get a notification email when a dependent task is completed

@Aron_Berger I learned a few weeks ago that notifications for dependencies are not generated if you are the assignee of both the tasks. Maybe that’s what’s happened in your case resulting in no notification generation?

This is not mentioned in the documentation, but I’d certainly prefer to see the feature changed to allow an Asana user to use dependencies as documented now; that is, don’t prevent notifications just because the assignee is the one completing the dependent task; that’s why we set up the dependency! Thanks…


I really hope asana team can fix this ASAP.

Any progress on this feature?


I second that!
It makes plenty of sense to be notified even if you own both tasks…
