Why is my "Send Notification" checkbox still missing or not available on the Task Page Layout

Knowledge Article Number 000228270
Description Users may note that the "Send Notification Email" is still unavailable upon creating or editing tasks despite an administrator disabling the feature "Enable User Control over Task Assignment Notifications" in the org's activity settings.

Setup, Customize | Activities | Task Page Layouts:

1. Click the Edit link next to the name of the Page Layout assigned to the affected user(s)

2. Click the Layout Properties button in the page layout's palette on the upper portion of the screen

3. Make sure the option to "Show on edit page" for the Email Notification Checkbox is selected and optionally choose your preference for "Select by default"
