I am using Project Server 2013 and SharePoint 2013. I am trying to send an email to a specific user when a task is assigned.

Example: PM John Doe creates a task in project and assigns it to Jane Doe. I want an email to go to manager Alex when John creates a task and assigns it to anyone. Does anyone know what workflow needs to be created to start this?

WFM is configured completely.

I would like to clarify that I do not want an email to go to the user who the task is assigned to.

Using SharePoint Designer,

  1. Create a workflow
  2. Set workflow to run when an item is created.
  3. In stage body, type email and press enter.
  4. Click on these users.
  5. In dialog box, select the name of Manager in To field.

Hope it helps!
