Customer notifications - to an added organization

I looked here:

and it appears I should be able to do this no problem. The client has provided two lists of customers.

  • List A is a sub-set of List B.
  • List A members receive notifications on any issues created/resolved.
  • List B members receive notifications for their own issues.

I created two organizations, call them List A & List B. In the Customer Notifications you can edit a notification and there's a To: field.

The only values I can get in there are Customers Involved and Reporter (Customer). 

What I want to see is List A.




From help link above. No difference if I create a custom notification.

Hi Rob,

We had a similar question a few months ago:

I don't think it's quite possible to what you are trying to do.  The "Added Organizations" if turned on will notify everyone in the Organization that is shared with the request when it is created.  After that it would be up to individuals to opt in on further notifications.

Customers involved is a bit of a misnomer as it really only applies to the individuals (not the orgs) who are shared with the issue and only if they haven't opted out of notifications  AND anyone who has opted in for notifications (but not necessarily on the shared list).

I know that people hack this a bit by putting in a user with a group email and somehow make them auto shared into each issue.  But that's not exactly what you are looking for either.

Here's the request for it:

Please vote....


Thanks Susan, voted!

I think the customer's org will opt-out of notifications as they begin getting spammed by things-they-don't-care-about.

I'd be fine with "Added organizations" working as you describe above. Is there a way to make that happen?

Hi Rob,

Just enable "Added organizations" in the customer notifications.  There's not much else to do with it.

If you're happy please mark this as answered


I cannot see where to enable that option. If I go to customer notifications...


Then edit there's no "Added Organizations" option. If I go to the notification schemes I can add the Project Role of service desk customers...

  • Project Role (Service Desk Customers) (Delete)

If you can point me to where I can enable "added organizations" that would be awesome. Seems a bit cleaner!

So you can't add the "Added organizations" as a "To".  You can only enable them in the list of Customer notifications where it says "Added Organizations"

Hope that's not very intuitive.

Gotcha, thanks for the help. Agreed it's not very intuitive...lots of hunting around for what seems to be a simple use case.

Any chance you found any additional workarounds?
