Bamboo notifications for scheduled build not starting


In bamboo you can receive a notification when a build succeeds (green), fails (red), when it changes between the two, such as 

"Change of Build Status
Bamboo will send a notification only when there has been a change in status of the plan's build activity over consecutive plan builds — for example, only whenever a plan's latest build changes from successful to failed or vice versa (i.e. 'fixed').

HOWEVER ...  I want to receive a notification when build does not start (grey icon, aka Not Built).  For some reason that is not considered a "Change of Build Status".  I get emails when a build fails and when it is successful again, but not when it does not start. A build cannot start if the harddrive is full, for example.  We're using bamboo server 5.9.7 and here's a screenshot of the icon

Does anyone know how to configure a bamboo notification to be sent when a scheduled build does not start?
