Notifications based on a specific status

We would like the ability to customize our notifications based on transitioning a Feature to a specific status. 


During the course of our Feature refinement, our Features are passed between various roles e.g. Product Manager > Architect > Product Owner etc. We are utilizing the Features > Workflow Kanban boards to facilitate this, however it would be nice to be able to receive a notification if a new item drops into my column (specific status).

    Thank you for your idea. As a best practice we would recommend updating the Assignee field as a feature is passed between roles. Changing the assignee will trigger a notification to the user who was assigned.

    At this time given the explanation above, we are unlikely to add notifications based on status. We hope you can understand.

    Thanks for the response. As we operate Kanban in this area, we use a pull mechanism as opposed to a push - as such we have WIP Limits for individuals which operate using a particular status - as such we cannot simply assign the work to them as it would result in a bottleneck in our process. We also have 'communities' managing statuses e.g. our Product Owners - who review and assign item out of the backlog based on the required field of expertise - pre assigning this would could result in it being given to the incorrect person. 

     

    Thanks
