Assign task to someone, send follow up reminders


Currently trialing this product and a few others to manage my personal tasks. But I need to assign some to someone else AND have automatic reminders sent to them. Will this product do this or Wedoist?

Hello Adam,

Wedoist will do this, but soon Todoist will too as we're working on implementing sharing into Todoist right now and it should be available within few months.

Best regards,

Hi, any news on this?

When assigning a task to someone else, it's much more important that *they* reminded, not me.

Hello Neil,

Assigning tasks is already possible since my last response a few years back :-) To do so, you have to right-click on a project and choose "Share project". Once it's shared, every task will have a head-shaped icon which you can use for assignments.

The person you assign it to will receive a notification via email, push notification and an in-app alert, unless they turn it off in Settings -> Notifications.

If you right-click on any task and go to "Reminders", you can select what person should receive the reminder as you add it :-)
