I have setup a notification that successfully sends an email to anyone that has been assigned to a task. However, if I assign a task to myself, I don't receive an email. Is this not receiving an email if you create the task or own the sheet normal? Mostly I was looking for the email to confirm I configuring the automation properly.

    Hi Andrew,

    First, make sure that you have allowed yourself to receive notifications properly in your Personal Settings (circle/profile in the upper right corner) and secondly check the Permission.setting for the Automations. (cog in the upper right corner in the Automation overview) 

    Did that work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!
