Sorry, but i can't finf out how to assign tasks
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.
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?
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.
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?
Yes they will be able too.
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
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.
is there a possibility to assign more than one person within the people ı share the project?
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.
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.
Is that for the business version as well? or is that product different?
Premium and Business have the same way of assigning tasks.
Without any controls, this is not a worthy business product.
great personal todo lister
Can I assign tasks without sharing the project . This would assist myself in tracking work submitted to employees .
No, unfortunately you can't assign a task without a shared project yet.
I would need the same functionality. Any plans?
I don't want to create labels to track people.
This is something that we would really like to implement in the future. This highly requested feature has been passed to our dev team. We can't provide an ETA yet, but as soon as we have any updates, we will share :-)
Thank you Galina. I can't wait to see it :)
I saw how to assign a project or assign task but how do you do this In IOS? Can't right click
To assign a task in iOS, please tap on that task > select Edit and then "Assign to..."
To share a project, please tap on that project > click on the person icon at the top right > type in an email address to invite a member.
When I assign a task to a team member, I am no longer able to view that task on my computer or other device. I want the ability to be able to continue to view assigned tasks. Is this recognized as a limitation of Todoist that needs to be upgraded? I don't understand the logic of assigning a task and then the person assigning the task can no longer see it. How am I supposed to manage my team?
So sorry to hear that you're having problems viewing tasks assigned to someone else.
Which view are you using to look at these tasks? Is it in a filtered view? If it is, what's the exact filter that you're using? Are these tasks still visible in the project view?
Clyde, this wasn't me.
The assigned task still shows in the Project. I don't utilize filters. I typically view tasks by looking at the Next 7 Days feature. I tried the View All filter, but the assigned tasks do not show in the Next 7 Days.
That's the intended behavior - when you delegate a task to someone, then you're no longer responsible for it and every search result page (today and 7 days are also technically filters that search for tasks with these dates) will only show you tasks that either you're responsible for or no one is (unassigned) - except for project views where all tasks are always visible.
That said, to see everyone's tasks that are overdue or due within the next 7 days, please use a custom filter set to:
:all: & overdue, :all: & 7 days
Whenever you add :all: into a search query, it will include tasks assigned to everyone by everyone. You could also use :to_others: instead, but this will show tasks that you have assigned to others.
David & Clyde. I did not raise this issue - nor am I Gary.
Everyone who participated in a certain thread receives an email notification whenever someone responds in it. Gary has responded in this thread and we're replying to him here which generates these notifications.
Got it now. Thanks David.
Another small business who would like the option of assigning a task to more than one person, sometimes including myself. Is it in development?
This is definitely needed. Maybe having a task owner would fix this. So, if I create a task, regardless if it is assigned to someone or not, it would still show in all of my views as I am the "owner" of that project/task. The filter all option works as mentioned above, but would like it to work in the default 7 day filter.
