Setting Notifications for Contact List Columns - Request

It would be very useful to be able to set Notifications for people in a Contact List type column. Right now it's only possible in the case of Reminders (there you can select either a Shared User or a Contact List - for instance an "Assigned to" - column):

    glad to hear that it's under development.  The more we can automate, the less we have to work Wink

    Thanks, Travis! I really like Notifications (my colleagues think I'm crazy), so any developments on this field are welcome. However, I can see only a kind of feature enhancement for better filtering on the roadmap: "Create advanced notification rules based on criteria such as Tasks Assigned to Me or Status is At Risk"

    - Are these just examples or the scope of the development? Could the above request be a part of it?

    Good question Atus! I do not have all the details on the full scope of this but I do believe you will be able to set notifications based on who is assigned to a task from a Contact List column.
