Send email of a task with comments

Hi folks!

There is a way to send email of a finished task including all comments on that task?

not out of the box.

you could:
1.) add an automatic action that does it for you

or

2.) override the notification template for the appropriate event (i.e. task close), with your own template to include all the comments.

Hello, did you manage to find a solution for this?

which part cant you figure out?

This action sends and email whenever there is a “New Comment” on a task.
I would think it should give you a good baseline to figure out how to send “All comments” when a task is closed.

If you can’t figure it out, let me know.

I will look at it again, Im just getting confused with how to create the action to send an email so that when the task closes, besides sending an email to comment that the task is closed… another email is fired through actions to send the ‘summary’ of the closed task… e.g. description and full comment history.

so do you want 1 email upon task close, with all comments and descriptions, or do you want 2 emails?

I already get an email that a task is closed… through an action…
I need a seperate email with a subject (Task summary) which will consist of the task description with a full history of the comments.

So for this board i would get 2 emails, but for other boards it would depend on which actions i use for that board.

ya that should be pretty simple.

get as far as you can, and then either add me to the repo or send me the code, and i will complete it.
