Can we assign a task to more than one person?

Each time I try to add someone to a task that already has one person assigned, it removes the person who was assigned and puts in the new person. It appears that only one person can be assigned to a task, correct?

Hello Rob,

That's correct, only one person can be responsible for a certain task. If it's a big task, you can of course create sub-tasks below it and assign each of them to someone else.


Best regards,
David

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make this the first "enhancement". Todoist next has finally provided what we all need, but one person per task just falss short of that "holy grail". We need to be able to "SHARE" tasks!!

I agree with Ian. This is a necessary feature. It's not always possible to assign a task to just one person. We need the ability to assign it to multiple people.

For me the same! One task has to be done by multiple people

Totally agree. After trying about 30 programs last week I thought I'd finally found "the one" for my team with Todoist... But only being able to assign one task to one person is the first major drawback... Hopefully this can be implemented soon.

This has been going on for such a long time. I truly believe Todoist doesn't see this as an issue.
Such a disappointment. I have abandoned Todoist for work tasks. I now typically use it for personal reminders (which I could have done for free in Google Calendar).

Agreed! It is crucial for me to assign tasks to multiple people.

PLEASE implement this. It is critical that individual tasks can be shared to multiple people (isn't that what teamwork is all about?!) and whomever marks the task complete it does so for everyone.

I agree with this. This should be the 1st change you make. It is important

The temporary solution here involves Zapier.com, this new online (free) automation platform.
Using Zapier together with Todoist, you can cause an email to be sent to yourself when a todoist task (that is *shared* with you, not necessarily assigned) is created with a label that says "xyz".
So, you can create a "Team" label, that includes multiple people typically assigned to different tasks. When a team label is assigned to a new task (which can be assigned to one of the team members, or not), you will be notified... You can also then filter for that team label to see what you team is working on...
This is only one suggestion. With this new Zapier thing, you can do a lot - your imagination is the only limiting factor.

+1 for multiple people assigned to a task.
