I have a Task List I created called Events. When a new task is created I want it to send an Alert to a group called TaskEmailList. This group has Full Control. However, when I create an Alert using the Alert Me button in the Items ribbon on this List I get this message below saying that no results were found when searching for the group TaskEmailList:

Is it not possible for a Task List to email Alerts to a group? Can someone please help?
