Users can now control notification emails for all of their task assignments. This new setting replaces the checkbox on the Create Task page that triggers an email to the assignee of the task. The user setting is exposed by default. You can hide the setting from users. Either option has specific effects on users of Salesforce1 and the full Salesforce site, on Communities users, on partner portal users, on users who are assigned tasks via workflow task rules, and on users who are assigned tasks that are generated by the triggerUserEmail field.
- Organization Setting (Enabled by Default)
- To hide the user setting, in Setup, click and deselect Enable user control over task assignment notifications.
- User Setting (Exposed by Default)
