Hello Rana,

1. The Inbox is a private project just for you, the Team Inbox is a team project that's shared automatically with everyone in your Business team.

2. Unfortunately, you can't assign tasks to people that are not invited into the project in which the task is stored. Please invite the third person to this project and then you can assign tasks to them.

3. The Inbox is a private project that can't be shared and the Team Inbox is shared automatically, but only with the people you invite into your Business team in Business Admin -> Users. You can't share the Team Inbox with people from outside your team, but you can do so with any other project.

On the team inbox -
1) what shows in this list? Is it every task for every person in your organization?
2) Will everyone in the origanization see the same list in the team inbox, or will only the company admins see it?
Thanks
Cliff

Cliff,

Everyone see's everything within any project including Team Inbox if they are part of that project.

Just so I'm clear... from your reply, it implies that team inbox is project specific. from the UI, it appears to be all tasks across all projects.. Please clarify.

Also, please reply to my question about what exactly shows in the team inbox. Currently I have a few projects with about a half-dozen tasks, but only one task shows in the team inbox.

I cannot find any info on what the team inbox is, so please provide details.

Thanks

Hello Cliff,

The "Team Inbox" is just a project, like every other project you add to your list. The only difference between it and any other project is that you don't have to share the Team Inbox because it's visible to everyone in your team by default.

That said, you can add tasks to it just like to any other project and that's basically it. It does not show tasks from other projects, it's a separate project, only one that everyone will see by default.


Regards,
David
