For lack of a better way to explain these notifications I am calling them false-positives. The scenerio is when an exsisting project is opened, saved and then published it will send a notificaiton to all team members and their task, assingment, progress or dates havent changed (at least that I can tell). My best guess is within each team member by default the system sends an alert under the setting of either ‘My project task are modified’ or ‘I receive a new task assignment in my projects’. However if I disable this within thier PWA account, then there are no notifications of an actual brand new task assignment to that team member. Any help would be appreciatead!
These notifications look like:
Subject: Assignments have been updated on PROJECT NAME
Project: PROJECT NAME
