As of v3.0.9 the following triggers are available:

on Project Change
on Action Change
on Action Expiring
on Ticket Linked
on File Changed
on Topic Changed

What needs to be updated is the ability to implement multiple email templates for variations of the trigger, for instance the "on Project Change" could be segregated so that new projects trigger a "New Project" email, where changes trigger an "Update Project" email. New actions or assignments of an action would trigger a separate email.

Currently each trigger uses a single email template which would need to be customized using Smarty to accomplish the above mentioned goal.

How to accomplish this segregation without compromising the flexibility of the current system needs to be determined.

for notify on new project creation, how about just adding some check boxes on the create new project page?

[] Notify Client
[] Notify Contact(s)
[] Notify Manager
[] Notify Assignee(s)
[] Attach notes to Notification

"In Project" notifications can stay mostly the same ... as that is when things within the project are updated or changed ... on project creation is a bit separate ;)

I like how you've snuck "Attach notes to Notification" into the mix - that is a very clever idea. I suppose these attachments would also be stored as new files for the project?

I agree this new project approach is a reasonable solution and would fit neatly into the notifications plugin, with the possible exception of the attach feature. As you suggested in a ticket, I think we would also benefit from having the ability to manually trigger an email from the notifications area of the project.

Having file attachments would be cool also ... I was just talking about the project "Notes / Details:" and "Private Notes:" - these already have internal/external permissions. This gives participants an introduction and ability to prepare to collaborate before even going to the site..with an ability to review content notes right from their notification email...this is good UX.

... but having file attachments would also be a great thing .. as they'd then be attached to the project and could be design briefs, sketches, pictures, project brief, scoping documents, etc ... which would then be available for everyone throughout the project for reference - making note that these files were viewable to everyone allowed access to the project.
