I see a lot of requests on here for adding different types of notifications. It would be a lot more useful to be able to create our own notifications. For instance when a certain field is updated or a certain custom filed is updated. The notifications currently are just too generic but you can't code a notification for everything everyone wants so why not give them the ability to create their own?


  • The current generic notifications do not support excellent communications when fields of interest are not included for automated email notifications. For example, our systems engineering group relies on changes to the Feature Description field which we use to post questions and answers. Not having an automated notification requires us to manually check back in the feature, which often can be days later, resulting in a loss of time and efficiency.

    I have worked with Atlassian JIRA that is a more basic system than VersionOne, but it did allow email notifications on all the fields in the form. I would recommend retaining the current canned notification options but allow users to select other fields of interest to bets suit their needs.

  • Another simpler approach could be to add a "Watch Feature" button to Notifications Page. It's more intuitive to come to the Notifications Page to do email notifications. It would be helpful if a brief explanation what Watch Feature does when the user mouses over that button.

  • One missing Notification is when Backlog Items are added under a Portfolio Item.

  • The email notifications that come have in subject the story id only. If we can configure to add story title too. It will be very helpful.

  • Notification setup based on field is going to be necessary for our business to operate efficiently.
