Mentioning and Assignment

What is it?

Board members are able to collaborate on different tasks throughout the board’s sections. If you want a member to take ownership of a task you can easily assign them to it from the Task’s menu. Furthermore, whenever creating checklists for your tasks, different items within your checklist can be assigned to different people, regardless of the original task owner(s). Item owners can also be mentioned in the task’s activity for progress updates or brainstorming.

Who has access?

How does it work?

  • You can assign a task to any of your board members
  • You can assign a checklist to any board member (regardless of the task’s owner)
  • You can assign multiple members to a single item
  • You can mention users through the task’s Activity tab to tag them for response
  • Once a member has been mentioned they will get a board notification
