@Bastien_Siebman I could be wrong, but wouldn’t someone need to be a member of a project in order to receive the project status update within the Portfolio? I’ve had members of my team tell me they are in the portfolio, but they can’t see the status of a project they haven’t been added to.
Receiving and being able to see is different. Indeed to receive the status update you need to be a member of the project with the status notification setting turned on. However, to be allowed to see the status, you need to either be a member of the project, or a member of the team with the project being public.
