Assign tasks to your colleagues to help push your projects along.
A task follower is different to a task assignee. A follower will receive updates to the task in the Dashboard > Updates section, but it will never appear in their Dashboard > My Tasks section. This is a good way to keep members of your team updated on a task without assigning them to the task.
- Open up a task.
- Click on the follower menu that is marked with the icon of two profiles.
- Enter the user’s name or select from the list available.
- Click on the box to the right and it will turn blue.
- Click the blue Done button. If you do not do this, your changes won’t save.
Another option is to @mention a colleague in the task description or a comment on the task. Mentioning someone with @username in a task they are not a part of will automatically make that user a follower of the task. The same applies to conversations.
You can simply type in @ and choose from the list of users displayed. Select @all to get the attention of all assignees and followers.
Professional and Business subscriptions can add multiple assignees to tasks!
