How do I add people to a task?

You can add the people in your space to a task any time you create it or are given editing permissions.  For an existing task, select the task you want to add people to.  Click the people icon to the left of the task name.  In the “Add People” box, choose the new person or people from the drop-down list and then click Save in the bottom right corner.  The newly added participants will receive a Kona notification about the new task.  If you want to add people as followers, be sure to use the “Notify people” field under Followers to add them to this section.  Once finished adding assignees and followers, click the “Save” button in the bottom right of the screen.  You will see a “Task was updated” message in the top of the screen.  The new people will appear in the Assigned To or Followers sections.

Note: If the person or people you would like to assign the task to is/are not listed in the drop-down, then you will need to invite them to join the space.

    I have spaces set for individual employees, so that any task added to that space is automatically for them. it's a bit of a pain to always have to take the time to assign them to the task as its created. Is there a way to have someone automatically added to any task created in a certain space?

    Hi Lisa,

    This feature is not available in Kona at this time.  It was recently suggested as a feature request here:  http://support.kona.com/entries/22062231-ability-to-set-default-users-on-new-items-by-space.  I would recommend clicking the Thumbs Up button to like it and move it up in popularity.  This helps us determine the features for future releases.

    Thanks,

    Christine

    Hi, I am in the task details and do not see a link to add people next to the "To" as noted above. The person I'm trying to add the task to is already on the space. It doesn't allow me to even add myself. Any assistance is appreciated.

    Hi Vickie,

    Only people that are already assigned to the task can add people to the task.  You would need to ask someone who is listed in the To section to add you and anyone else that needs to be assigned to the task.

    Regards,

    Hi Christine, thanks for your prompt response. I think there might be a glitch because eve though I created some of the tasks, it shows no one as assigned. When I go into the mobile version and click on a task, it gives me an error message. Any other suggestions? Thanks

    Hi Vickie,

    In that case, it sounds like an issue we are working on fixing with recurring tasks.  I'm going to open a support ticket with you so we can investigate this further.

    Thanks,

    Christine
