How do I get notified when any of my team member doesn't have any task in "in progress" status?

I manage a large team and I am struggling to keep track of their workloads. I would like to receive notifications if any of my team members are not currently working on a task. This will help me to allocate resources more efficiently and ensure that everyone is being utilized to their full potential. Can you suggest a way for me to receive these notifications?

Hi Nisha - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

One way might be to create an automation rule so that when an issue is closed, you check to see if the Assignee has any open issues that he/she is the assignee for (you could do this with lookupIssues function and size = 0). If so, then email you. 

Or you could create a schedule trigger rule to run a few times a day that will do the same thing - email you if any of your team are not currently assigned to an open issue.
