I use Project server 2013 and I created a Project web app site.

I created an enterprise project and entered the team data.

Now I am able to assign tasks to resources.

What I want is that the team member is notified by email if when I assign a task to that team member.

enter image description here

In the screen shot you can see that I have assigned tasks to users. You can see Liza Naeem which is an active directory user and has an email.

How can I notify Liza Naeem by email using a Project automatism that this task was assigned to him.

  • Have you tried putting email addresses in resource sheet for the team members to whom you are assigning the task. Also try putting the publish column and send updates

  • Thank you for your post. I did the same actions, but alerts/notifications about tasks' assignments don't send to resources. I also enabled alerts/notifications for each resources too. Emails from Workflows work, but alerts/notifications don't. Do you know what may be a reason? Thank you! Jan 24, 2017 at 13:42
