Can you assign a task to another user via email?

I'd like to set something up so that I can email through a task to a project with an individual user assignment.

Is this possible? It doesn't have a similar option in Zapier and none of the email tutorials have it as well.

Hi Eugene,

Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment. We'll look into adding this an option in the future.

This is at least somewhat related. I'd like to set up a Zap from Gmail and Evernote to create new Todoist tasks. That's easy enough.

What I'd like it to do is automatically assign these tasks to other people from within Zapier. Is that possible?

Example workflow:

1. Sales lead comes in through an email
2. Todoist task is automatically created instructing my assistant to add the lead to my CRM and to respond to the email
3. That task automatically gets assigned to my assistant (this isn't currently possible, so far as I can tell)
4. Everyone is so much happier

I would like echo @Eugene's request for the desire to assign a task. We use todoist business and it seems that this should be a default feature.

100% agree this would be very-very useful feature.
