Within Teamwork Projects, you can add triggers to columns in your project's board view to send a custom notification when a card is moved to the column.

To add the trigger, hover over the column name to reveal the options dropdown, and click to show the menu options. Select Column Settings.


In the column settings quick view, select Add Trigger to open the trigger modal.


Choose Send custom notification from the trigger type dropdown in the add trigger modal. Once selected, you can then choose who to notify. You can select one or multiple of the following options:

  • Task assignees - anyone assigned to the task will get the notification
  • Change followers - anyone following task changes will be notified
  • Comment followers - users following task comments will receive the notification
  • Specific people - choose specific users to notify

At the bottom of the modal, you can also add a custom message to include with the notification.

Once the trigger has been applied, it will be listed in the tooltip when you hover over the trigger icon at the bottom of the column.


Each time a card is then moved to the column, an email will be sent to the selected user(s) notifying them that the task has been edited.

The email will also mention the associated task list and project, the custom message (if set), and an option to view the task in Teamwork Projects.
