I want to notify the task creator when an assigned task is completed. I cant see a way i can do it currently in salesforce.
I do see a workaround suggested by SteveMo https://success.salesforce.com/answers?id=90630000000gsHvAAI
You can't create a straight Email Alert directly from a Task using a Workflow Rule. However, can can create a Follow-Up Task and check the "Notify Assignee" box, which will basically have the same effect. Also, you should have the Follow-Up Task default to Status = Completed so they don't have to close out the Notification Tasks.
But i am not sure how to go about doing this. Do we create followup task through code or is there a way to automatically create a follow up tasks via UI?
