Following/Watching a Task

If you want to receive notifications and get updated about a task's progress, even though the task is not assigned to you, you can add yourself as a "Watcher". 

Watchers of a task receive notifications about new comments on the task as well as changes to the task status, such as completion. So if a task is not assigned to you, but you'd still like to stay in the loop about its progress, becoming a Watcher is the way to go.

How to Become a Task Watcher:

By default, every user who participates in a task is automatically added as a Watcher. This happens when:
