Simple Notes Workflow not working

I have a simple workflow I set up to send an email when a user is assigned a note.

I did a workflow to essentially over ride the default email so I can put more variables in it and customize it further.

I did a similar one with “Leads” and it works perfectly fine. For some reason, doing the same thing with “Notes” doesnt work at all. The user never gets the email when they are assigned the note, nor does the workflow send an email when a note is assigned to a hardcoded e-mail address.

What could possibly be going wrong here with something so simple?
