How to turn on custom field notifications
You can turn on custom field notifications at any time for both new and existing drop-down fields.
Check the Notifications box when creating a new drop-down field to notify task followers when this field’s value has been changed.
To turn on notifications for an existing field:
- Click the Fields tab in your project toolbar.
- Click the pencil icon to edit the field settings and check the Notifications box
Custom field notifications are only available for drop-down fields.
How notifications will appear in the inbox when the status changes
Once you are a task follower, you will receive an inbox notification every time a field value is changed.
Project Members will only receive custom field notifications if they are following the task where the field value has been changed.
Who will receive custom field notifications?
If a custom field is public to your Organization or team and someone checks the notifications box, anyone using that field at the time will receive notifications every time that field’s value has been changed. If you want to be notified when a field’s value has been changed for a specific task, you need to be a task follower.
