Hi Sergey,

Please right click on the project you'd like to share, and choose "Share Project" then any task will have the options to assign the task.

Regards,
Brendon.

Ah, I was trying to figure that out. This seems like a great feature. Questions - if I share a project with someone but don't share any tasks, do they:

1. get a notification I've shared the project
2. can they see tasks in the project I have not shared with them?
3. do they have to be a premium user to interact with my projects and tasks?

Frank,

1. Yes they will.
2. Yes they should see anything within that Project, but will not be notified of each change, unless added to that task.
3. No they do not.

Regards,
Brendon.

Thanks Brendon. Assigning tasks is a REALLY useful new feature that greatly increases the value of Todoist to me (and will result in lots of new users for you!). I'm looking forward to seeing how collaboration continues to evolve in Todoist.

If a premium user adds a file to a task that is shared with a free user, will they be able to access the file?

I've got a little problem. I'd shared the project, then i've assigned the task. And now the assigned person can make changes to all the tasks within the project. Can i put some restrictions?
Anyhow, that update is really great

Hello Sergey.

Yes, any person you invite to a project will have full access to the contents of this project so it's advised to only share project with people that you know won't cause any damage to it.

The assignment feature is an addition to sharing to keep track of who's responsible for what task.


Best regards,
David

is there a possibility to assign more than one person within the people ı share the project?

Hello Fethi,

It's not possible to make multiple people responsible for one task, but you could break down a task into sub-tasks and assign a different person to a different sub-task.


Best regards,
David

Some tasks, e.g., "Carry Table", require more than one person.

Agree that some tasks require more than one person. For example, meeting notice or request members to hand over they report.

Agreed, This is definitely a limitation, quite important to be able to assign tasks to multiple people, and also be able to include yourself as part of the team. For instance I want 3 of 6 of the crew to wash the boat... or wax my car LOL.
