In the new Project for Web, allow users to customize email notifications about tasks which are assigned to them, have been updated, etc. Does not seem to be an option to do so, and it's critical for my team to be notified about their tasks.
We are starting work to enable native notifications in Project for the web. We will share updates as we have them.
You can also set up customized notifications through flows in Power Automate. We have published two templates you can use, and customize You can learn about them here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/new-flow-templates-for-project-for-the-web/ba-p/1384140
There needs to be the ability to turn off notifications in Teams when a card is created in planner. It is exceptionally disruptive to have notifications pop up on screen, in my tool bar and in my teams activity while trying to work. Some folks my like/want it but definitely all.
Need to add some notifications, not with power automate, with the app, when you assign tasks, when is going to be overdue, and when its overdue
Would be amazing if P4W have notifications like when you've been assigned to a task, when its overdueo or when its close to overdue
It looks like we have to pay for premium in that Power Automate flow you setup. Is there a workaround? Notifications seem like a basic thing that's absolutely needed.

I would like to ask, if I sign a task for somebody in the Project why doesn't this person receive an email about it?
Because if I sign a task in the Planner for somebody, this person receive an email.
This seems possible with Flow - both in project and planner

It would be interesting if project would send emails to the ressources when there is a task of theres that is comming up...
Notifications via email to groups when tasks are updated by team members would be a more efficient way of communicating status updates, changes, and reassignments.
Also if there is a change of status or 'Bucket'.
We would like to add notification and powerBI for reporting

I agree with this idea. I believe that notifications should be customizable at the Project level, or Group level, so that the Project Manager can adjust their individual Projects notifications. This will allow team member and users to be aware of all updates to tasks, not just an assignment, but also any update to that task.

Could you provide an option for sending an automatic email notification to other people in a group when I complete a task that their tasks are dependent on?
John Shkolnik commented
People sometimes have an interest or stake in a particular task. The only way to follow something now is to be assigned to it which is obviously far from ideal.

Task assignments, status, and important project events with Outlook and Teams notifications. This function is currently available in Planner as well as Project Online according to the Microsoft Project service description.

When a task is assigned to someone in Project for the web, there should be an email notification sent to the assignee.
