Our previous work item tracking system had a feature called "notification list". In addition to the individual who is assigned a work item, any user included in this list would also receive an email when the work item was updated. This made it very easy to keep apprised of changes to specific work items. Especially for those of us who work out of our inboxes.
Is there any way to set something up in TFS that works in a similar fashion?
Note: Our TFS guru did set up a similar mechanism, but whoever updates a work item must specify the list of users to be notified every time they update a work item. That unfortunately is not a very effective solution. We're hoping to be able to define a global list of recipients once (or update it as needed) and have updates automatically emailed to users on that list.
