Tasks FAQs

Does the user who assigns tasks to other users receive notifications about changes or updates on the tasks they assign?


By default, a task requester/ assigner does not receive email notifications for the changes on the tasks that they assign to other users. The amount of notifications on these tasks would be overwhelming for someone who assigns a large number of tasks routinely. 

Why does the New Task button not show in the Subtask tab?

The New Task button does not show in the subtask tab when there is an Approval on the task.


The New Task button does not show because Workfront does not allow a Task with an Approval to become a parent task.
