Need to Send an Email off of a Task Workflow

I need to be able to send an email to users when a task picklist field equals a certain value. I only need it to happen on create.


When I select the workflow action it does not allow New email. What should I do?



You can’t send an email through workflow when you are working on Task object. So to do this you have to write a trigger on task object.


Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved. 


Do you know the code for the trigger? Is it something simple to set up?
