Email to Board Members if new task is created but not assigned

New Contributor

Hello,

i wanted to ask if it is possible to send out an automatic email to the board members if a new task is created but not assigned. So that the members of the teams board see, "ah, theres a new task in the board" and look it up and assign it to themselves, if they want to work on the task.

 

I hope it is understandable what i mean :)

Thanks for your help!

Hello! I understand :) Not out of the box as all the default notifications are triggered along with the action "task assignment", both for email and Teams Planner notification bot. But I did a search for you and found this template, see if it works for you.

@PHili250 tried the above template yesterday and it works fine being notified when a task is being added, and not assigned.
