SP2013: Enable SharePoint 2013 Tasks List Email Notification

Hi,

You need to run a script to get this enabled.

Make sure your outgoing mail is working.
Run this:

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

$web = Get-SPWeb "https://sitename.domain.com/sites/Sitename/"
$list = $web.Lists.TryGetList("TaskName")

$list.EnableAssignToEmail = $true
$list.Update()

  1. SharePoint Online delivers the powerful features of SharePoint without the associated overhead of managing the infrastructure on your own. Flexible management options ensure that you still retain the control you need to meet the compliance requirements of your organization. You can purchase SharePoint in the cloud as a standalone offering or as part of an Office 365 suite where you could also get access to Exchange, Lync, the Office clients and web apps.

  2. Danie,

    Have you tried to reverse this process?

    I tried:

    Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.Powershell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

    $web = Get-SPWeb "https://sitename.domain.com/sites/Sitename/"
    $list = $web.Lists.TryGetList("TaskName")

    $list.EnableAssignToEmail = $false
    $list.Update()

    but returned an error:

    Eception calling "Update" with "0" argument(s):
    $list.Update()
