Granular Email Notifications - Tasks
When the configuration "cog" is added, it would be helpful if it had a section for email notifications, (just like RFI's have) so that you can choose how you want notifications to occur.
When a task is created currently, you get a notification email of that. However, you get no notifications of any activity afterwards. You should be able to choose which notifications you get for the following events:
When a comment is added to the task, creator or assignee (and eventual distribution list) get an email notifying them of that. It should be built so that the person making the comment doesn't get an email of their own action though, to cut down on needless emails.
When the status changes, same as #1.
When the task is closed, same as #1.
Thank you for your feedback! We have shared your post with the development teams. We will update this space if we have any questions or change the status.
Actually, the video titled 'Subcontractor - Resolve a Task' on Procore Support pages located at https://support.procore.com/products/online/user-guide/project-level/tasks says 1:25mins into the video "When you change the status of a task, the items creator will receive an email notification about any updates".

absolutely, i had our CEO put a comment a few days ago and i just saw it!!! when we have dozens of tasks going at once i cant spend all day checking if a comment was made. A simple notification dot in the notification area or simple daily email digest is all that is needed

Totally agree, the Task Tool needs some form of notification when the assignee or creator makes comments or changes status. I get an email saying the task has been generated. I hope the team can implement this notification, for me it greatly reduces the Task tool application.

Currently other tools have notifications when there is a comment/update (punchlist,RFIs, submittals). This would be useful to remind another user of a deadline, request an update, or provide (notified) additional information.

Email notifications on tasks are essential!! This tool is useless without receiving notifications whenever a comment is made. It's impossible to keep track of all the tasks I create and have the time to go check every one to see if a comment was made!!
Alex Erickson commented
the tasks tool is almost unusable without email notifications of task status changes.

We really need to be notified of comments to task, rather than having to go in every time and check if anything has change, On larger jobs you could have several task and to have to go in and check them all doesnt make sense, whereas if you get notified by email that someone has commented if would save a lot of time. We are only getting used to working procore but could see the real benefit of the notification. accounts@martinreddi

Hi folks, I'm currently working on an app for the marketplace that provides granular email notifications for tasks. If anyone has specific requirements or needs for this type of app, I'd love to get your input. You can reach me at <my first name>@internaltools.io.

I've mentioned this a few times. Stop using Tasks! Use Observations instead!
Observations gives all the flexibility, notifications and reporting that everyone is asking for.
We turned off Tasks. It was nice and simple, but it did not deliver.
Jaden Brown commented
Please implement notifications for the task tool ASAP! Thanks!

There is no need to send hundreds of emails to subcontractors when a tasks is simply assigned. We need a email matrix please!

How many votes does it take to get "prioritized for development"?
Jessica Harrison commented
Yes! We need this asap!
Raul Pereira commented
This would be helpful in follow up with tasks , what would be interesting If procore would have features just like Micros0ft Team and planer with graphs show task priorities and advancements
Bradford Chabot commented
Please Make this So!!!!
notifications should be sent automatically when status of tasks was changed by a participant
Jacob Lane commented
Absolutely need to add this function! The task feature was one of the biggest features to sell us on Procore. A huge part of Project Management is follow up. We are constantly following up with Superintendents, vendors, subs and clients to see if they have done what they said they would do. The task feature was to help with this follow up. There should absolutely be an option to send a notification when updating the status of a task. Please fix this
Justin Anspach commented
Really helpful to get have more control over notifications. please add this ASAP
Stan Merryman commented
Attempting to move over from another software that has notification, looks like the only way to have the option in PC is in punch list, is this going to be addressed in task section?
Gabriel Sylvain commented
It would be very helpful notification is send when person assigne to a tasks leave a comment just like observation
