About Action Notifications

You can set up notifications for when an action fails.

Notifications are sent to your chosen stakeholders both through email and through the in-product feed. They will state the name of the action that failed, which task in the action failed, and contain a link to the Actions Reporting page where you can view more information on the workflow’s status.
