Does Trello send email notifications when a task is modified? Or do we have to log in and check to see if tasks have been updated?

Currently, Trello will send you an email notification if

  • You were added to a card
  • You were invited to something
  • A card you were assigned to changed

The default setting is to email you a collection of unread notifications about every hour. You can change how frequently you receive email notifications at https://trello.com/your/account


Types of Notifications

When subscribed to a card, you’ll get notifications for…

  • All comments from other users

  • Adding, changing, and upcoming due dates

  • Card moves and archives

When subscribed to a list or board…

  • You’ll get the same notifications listed above, but for all cards in a list or board.
  • You’ll also get notifications for all newly created cards

And at any time, you’ll get notifications when…

  • You are mentioned in a comment.
  • You are added to a card, board, or team.
  • You are mentioned in a checklist item.
  • One of your boards is closed.
  • When someone makes you an admin of a board or team.

You can also subscribe to cards, lists, and entire boards to receive notifications for updates to those items.


You need to "Subscribe" to a list to get notifications - click right hand button on top of the list and click "Subscribe"
