Setting task notifications

Hello, Opening up our question to the Forum if anyone else has any advice, suggestions. 

 

We have a question on the 'task notifications' in tasks of a workplan. 

 

We would like to confirm, if we set the 'task notification' on the top '0' level line of a workplan, all the tasks below will automatically inherit the same notifications?  Invidividual tasks would not have to be updated?

Would this be indicated anywhere as I did a test on a plan by updating the notification on the 0 level but there is nothing to show that all the tasks below have the notification (by reveiwing each task). So is this just assumed to be done by the system?

 

Also do you possibly know of any task configuration or setting in PPM where if 'ANY' task is created, it could have default values set such as 'notify all resources when a task is late'. Just curious if maybe any new changes or parameters were added to PPM since 2011. We are now on PPM 9.31.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on if it would be possible to auto-populate certain notification parameters either thru a workflow execution or mass update maybe??

 

Appreciate your advice/suggestions. Thanks!
