Activity Creator should get notification of task completed
Currently, when I create a task for an employee, I have to list myself as well in order to be notified by email when they complete the task. I would prefer to not list myself because the overview page lists "2 users" in the assigned to box and I cannot easily tell who the task is for (me or my employee). I would rather that you create a preference option that allows whoever assigned the tax to be automatically emailed when the task is completed. Also, it would be nice if Tailwag did not automatically put my name in the "assigned to" box, as I'm assigning tasks to employees most of the time.
The suggestion may be planned, but there is no timeline on this feature being added.
This suggestion is remaining open and can continue to gather votes and comments!
I know the old system allowed this. I hope they fix it soon.
Also see "Manager notification of task completed" this seems like a similar issue
Notifications should be sent to person who created task when it is completed even when not listed as an attendee of task. Very helpful when assigning tasks to advisors/staff.

I believe in the Leapfrog version there was a way to select who the task is specifically assigned to and then add individuals to notify about the task. Currently, it is very confusing when you have to add individuals as attendees therefore 'assigning' the task to them even though you only want to notify them. I know you have the option of creating a 'team' but that seems overboard to have to go through all of those steps just to notify an additional person.

I would like the option to set my notification preference to "Yes" when an activity that I created, but am not an Attendee on is completed. I don't want to be an Attendee since as I don't want the activity to show in my activities list. As is I believe the user completing the activity either needs to add me as an attendee or select a team I'm part of in the Team Notify section as they complete the activity in order for me to receive a completion notification. This is an additional step and requires the completing user to remember to do so.
Currently, if another user creates or updates an activity assigned to me, I get an email notification.
But if *I* create or update an activity assigned to me, it does not send me an email.
I use my inbox as my To-Do list, and it would be helpful to have a setting where I can get notifications on my assigned activities, even if I was the one who created or updated it.
