Contact List Column - Contacts not being notified. How do I fix this?

Hi all,

I'm hoping you can help me resolve an issue I'm experiencing. I have created a project plan and inserted a Contact List column so that individual tasks can be assigned to various team members.

Based on videos and tutorials I have seen, I was expecting to be prompted to notify team members that they have been assigned to a specific task, as soon as their name was added from the dropdown against said task.

Not only am I not being prompted for this but I have also checked with my team mates and they have not received any notifications, even after I have saved changes.

Finally, this isn't restricted to this particular project plan alone. I have also created a Risk log in a Grid sheet and added a Contact List column for the same purpose, and am experiencing the same issue with this particular document.

Is there a function I need to enable, or a step that I may be missing?

I look forward to hearing from you and, until then, please accept my thanks in advance for your time and help!

Kind regards,
