Assigning Tasks

In MeisterTask, tasks are either unassigned, or assigned to one specific project member, ensuring a clear distribution of responsibilities. Other project members interested in receiving updates about a task are able to add themselves as 'Watchers' to the task. 

When a task is assigned to a user, their avatar appears in the upper right corner of the task tile, so you can see at a glance who owns which task while looking at your project board. 

Assigned Task

You can assign a task both from the project board and from within the task dialog.

 

Assigning from the Project Board

Simply hover over the right top corner of an unassigned task and click on the question mark to open the member list. Click on the avatar or name of a user to assign the task to them.

Assigning from the Task Dialog

The current assigned person is always shown at the top of the task dialog. Click on "Not Assigned" to open the member list. You can click on the avatar or name of a user here as well to assign the task to them.
