Text Notification Upon Long-Running Task Completion

Hi Rackspace & Rackspace Community,

Some operations take longer than a handful of seconds or minutes to complete (e.g., creating a new Cloud Server from a saved image or creating a new My SQL cloud database instance from a backup). It would be really great if there was an "Alert Me Upon Completion" option built into those workflow scenarios. I'm thinking that an email address field and phone number field could be near the bottom of the form for these operations. They could pre-populate to the signed in user's email address and phone number perhaps. Then when the operation is truly finished you'd receive a notification to either the email or mobile phone number.

Please consider this as feature request whenever you're prioritizing things.
