Assign Tasks and Add Task Watchers

Assign tasks to other collaborators in your project to delegate responsibilities. Task assignees receive notifications whenever changes are made to a task, and their user avatar is prominently displayed on the task tile.

Watch (follow) a task to stay updated and receive notifications whenever changes are made to a task.


Add Comments to Communicate with Others

The comments section at the bottom of the task window offers a place for team members to communicate with each other and share information on task progress.

Add comments to exchange ideas, link to attachments, and alert other team members to important information by mentioning them. For more information, visit our dedicated article here.


Complete and Archive tasks

Once you've finished working on a task, you can mark it as Completed to cross it off and keep track of your progress. Completed tasks can then be Archived and removed from your project board.
