Project Owner should automatically receive notifications of all task/status updates - no need to @mention them


Level 5


Often we have people who use Workfront to post about progress or roadblocks for a task. They do not @mention the project owner, though. That means we miss out on a status update, and have had to add in a manual step every week for the PMO to spend time reviewing the "Updates" tab in all of our projects to see where we have potentially missed receiving an update.

The Project Owner should automatically be notified with the comment posted on one of their project tasks or issues. This would also be helpful when a user enters a comment on the Project > Updates page.

At the very least there should be a setting for project owners to get alerts on any communication on their projects. I'm truly surprised this hasn't been addressed in all the years I have been using Workfront. So many people complain about missing notifications because users forget to tag people. If the owner got notified they could see no one is tagged and make sure to tag in the pertinent users.
