Project Server 2016: Alerts are not generated when assigning or modifying tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • I configured an outgoing mail server in the central administration. Also enabled "Turn On Notifications" for PWA Settings | Additional Server Settings. The issue is that no alerts are being generated when a new task is assigned or modified. Can someone please provide guidance what to check?

    What was verified:

    - Running a PowerShell script on that machine that sends an email works.

    - SharePoint site calendar email alert works as well.

  • For some reason it is now working today!!!

    The only big change that I can think of is creating Timesheet Managers. I was using the default before.

  • Any pointers? I am willing to help debug this problem. Is there a configuration file I can tweak to do verbose logging?

  • When I submit task update I am receiving an email. So this is encouraging. But if I assign tasks to me I am not getting email notification.

  • Does it send an email when you assign a task to resource other than yourself?

  • I have not tried. I will try to create a fake account to check and report back.

  • As far as my experiments go it is not working even for a fake user. I can see tasks updated by the fake user but the fake user does not receive email notification for new/modified assignments.

  • Are you able to receive emails if you set an alert on SP document? Secondly, check if user has email defined in Manage User section.

  • Does alert from Calendar qualify? If yes, then email notification from SharePoint Calendar works.

  • Sounds like a bug, get in touch with Microsoft and open up a ticket.
