Inheritable Shares & Task to multiple personse



I was wondering whether shares will become interitable to southbound projects.


Project1 (Share with A, B, C)
Project11 (automatically shared with A,B,C + D)

And Can I also share my Inbox .....

Also will it become possible to add multiple users to a shared task? I see the rationale behind it but it is really difficult and leads to micromgt of teams.

Hello Alex,

Right now, none of this is possible, but we will consider add some of these features in the future, especially sharing of sub-projects along with the parent project.

The Inbox is a project that can't be shared, but if you'd use Todoist for Business, then you'll see 2 Inboxes:
- My Inbox
- Team Inbox
and the Team Inbox would be one that's always shared automatically with everyone on your team.

As for adding multiple users to a task - if you'd do that, instead of focusing on their work, they'd need to start with redistributing it among themselves, communicate about the progress all the time etc. Therefore, we always recommend to break big tasks into sub-tasks and assign each sub-task to one person who will know clearly that this is their responsibility, will give you an overview of who's responsible for what and of course increase productivity :-)

Please check out this post on our blog where we explain why clear individual assignments can be extremely helpful: https://todoist.com/blog/2014/05/using-steve-jobs-strategy-to-assign-tasks-in-todoist/

How is it going with the "share sub-project" that would be very nice.
