Help with notifying people that they've been assigned a task

We use Monday boards and groups for new hire onboarding. Every time a new person joins the company, we assign the same tasks to our internal back office team - for example, the same IT person is assigned the task of ordering a laptop for the new hire, every time a new hire starts.

I want the people who are assigned these tasks to get a notification every time they’ve been assigned to something, but I can’t seem to do it So, IT person gets notified when they have to order a laptop for John Doe who is starting on March 1. Then, separately, we learn that Jane Doe is also going to start on March 1. IT person needs to order a laptop for her too.

I have set up this automation in the board, but when I duplicate the board, or groups within the board, new notifications aren’t triggered


Can anyone help?
