Assigning tasks to your teammates ensures that everyone knows what their roles are, and can see which members are working on related tasks so they can collaborate to crush the team's goals together!
How to assign tasks
Assign items on your board to anyone in your account using the People Column. Click the '+' sign to the right of your columns to add a new column and then select "people".
Once you've added the column, you can assign team members to your tasks by clicking the cell and typing the name of your teammate.
When a task is assigned, the teammate it was assigned to will receive a bell notification so they always stay up to date with their responsibilities. Users can also choose to receive e-mail notifications.
Can I assign tasks to users who are not in my account?
Tagging team members using the People Column only works for users in your account. To assign tasks to team members who are not in your account, you can either invite them to join your account or use the Text Column.
Type the assignee's name in the cell in the Text Column so that everyone on your team knows who's responsible for that task!
