What does it mean to follow or un-follow a task?

When creating a new task, click the people icon to access “Assign To” and “Add Followers”.  Click in the “Add people” and “Notify people” boxes to put people into the appropriate sections.

For an existing task, click on the task to open the task details pane.  Click the link next to “Assign To” if followers are not on this task or click directly on the link next to “Followers” at the top of the window.  Use the “add people” and “notify people” boxes to add someone as an Assignee or Follower. 

Note: If the task is currently assigned to Everyone, you will need to de-select the Everyone group before you can sort people into Attendees and Followers.

From the Tasks tab: When you hover on a task’s name on the Tasks tab, you will see a new Follow icon available.  Click this icon to become a task follower.


Assign To: Choose the people responsible for completing this task. You can change these people in this screen as well.

Followers: Choose the people that should receive email notifications regarding this task. The task will not appear in their MY TASKS or My Kona Tasks view. You can change the people in this screen as well.  For example, you can add yourself as a follower on a task you are interested in being notified on but don’t need to complete.

After adding the assignees and followers, you will see “Assign To” and “Followers” listed underneath “get the conversation started”.  You can turn the lock icon on and off here.

Public/Private (Lock icon): If this icon is locked (private), then only the people listed as Assigned or Following will be able to view the task. If the icon is unlocked (public) then everyone in the space will be able to view the task. The task will not appear in everyone’s My Kona view but will be visible from within the space.
